Our week

June 21, 2013

It’s summertime and we celebrated daddy, enjoyed new friends, swimming lessons, service projects at a fantastic senior living center, and ordinary life at home too.

Happy Father’s Day to a fantastic dad. Your love for us makes you a great dad. We love you!

Katie was so happy for dad to get her presents.

The weather has been fantastic! Swimming lessons were such a fun way to meet even more families from the local homeschool community. I’m thankful for the opportunity to grow in our schooling-at-home friendships.

She is still hesitant about the pool. The swim teacher (a homeschooling mom generous to offer us free lessons) offered to take her into the water. Of course, Clare fusses for everyone but her now. In fact, the following day, she asked Ms. Genna to take her into the water. Little Stinker!

We’ve had so much fun with new friends this week. Gabi has been so good helping me with the “babies” these past few weeks. It’s been fun to have her siblings with her this week also. I’m thankful for the opportunity to have playmates and a change in our routine also. What great kids!!

There are two extra girls in the house in the afternoon…of course. Why not host a real tea party?!

And partake in a few drawing classes with Mr. Mark.

Ellie loves the attention as much as anyone.

This little girl has come to love the camera. She’s always willing to ham it up for me. It’s really a fantastic gift to me! Imagine, right?!

Yep. Look at me. I’m 4 months old!!

The kids were happy to have had the chance to participate in the Lego mini build. In honor of the movie’s release, they built a fantastic Superman model.

The best part of our week? Visiting the senior center here in Cumming!

The homeschool group put together an afternoon service project. However, I think we will find ourselves there more often than just once a month for an organized service project. What a beautiful facility, a welcoming spirit, and fantastic residents quite happy to watch the children.

Ms. Pat, a mom of 4 boys, was delighted to hold a sleeping Elizabeth. I was happy to have my hands free to chase a very rambunctious Clare. She proclaimed herself an adopted grandmother and made us promise we’d come back and with our offer to bring chocolate chip cookies, she made certain we knew not to wait too long!
