We've had a great week here. We've been talking about how Jesus is the Light of the World. The kids are studying John 8:12 "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life." Science has been about the Universe and stars. We stayed up a little later one night and looked at the stars. We'll have to have daddy get his telescope together for us one night again so we can look some more! We have also been studying Native Americans. The kids have enjoyed our projects with these studies. Everyday they'd ask what do we get to make today??
Here they are working hard on their wigwam's

Now the camera was misplaced for a few days so we managed to lose a few tepee's but here are some more homes.

Today we had a beach day, it was so nice!! We've neglected to go for a few months, it seemed like every time we wanted to the jellyfish were in so just wasn't working out. James' softball game ended up be canceled today so we got to spend more time that we had planned. Took a nice little lunch and had a fun day in the sun.

Doesn't the poor thing look tired?

But he loved splashing!! He crawled around the shore and loved me to take him out in the water where he'd swim and splash and pretend to gulp the water!

I watched daddy bury the other kids from the shade. I started to get up and get a closer picture but I5 was already getting up!

Why was I in the shade? Because it was nap time!

We had these things shading us. We were hoping that they weren't interested in falling down anytime soon.

I did take pictures of the other kids but they didn't turn out great. We got a new camera and I am getting use to the new settings.

catch up

We had our 3rd week of school last week. All went well. Wednesday we had the kick off to start our bible study this fall. The kids were so excited to start, I admit I was too. Looks like we will have another wonderful year with PWOC, such a great group of women-it's wonderful to be around those who love Christ.

I have some pictures to share from a busy weekend. First off we had the last game of soccer.
Here is I5 and I7 chasing the golden snitch as James called it.

A shot after the game, little brother had to get in too! J3 always told everyone that he did little soccer because at soccer practice and most games we'd play soccer with him behind the scenes.

The kids team won, 7-0. They did really good with team work on the last game, it was good to see! We had great coaches, thank you for your hard work coaches!

Next on the schedule was some water play at church. For VBS this year we had a water park theme. So this was about a month after VBS that we held a water play day to invite all the VBS children back.
It was a very humid weekend so it was the best timing to have some water fun!

L1 favorite part was playing in a car

Just one more picture to post, Sunday we had a baby dedication for L1. So here are most of us with Pastor David.

There is the quick version on what have we been up too. I think one of the best moments for me this weekend was having a date with my husband and coming home to a quiet house. Ahh, nothing so wonderful as coming home to a house with sleeping children! Now onto having breakfast and starting the new week.
