Our 3 Blessings

Katy with big girl teeth, VJ with baby teeth, and Noah with no front teeth. The boys matching shirts and Katy's German dress are all from Nana.

Mimi's 60th Birthday!

Such a young looking 60! Maybe the grand kids help keep her young! And, I had to include a picture of Papa and the kids on the couch.


Katy is in 4th grade this year and is doing: Saxon 6/5Math, English 4(grammar and writing), Spelling, Typing, and American History ( We are doing one semester of heavy history and then next semester will be heavy science). Outside the home she has guitar(2nd year), ballet(4th year), and Bible Study Fellowship classes weekly. She practices/does lessons during our homeschool schedule for the outside subjects. Katy also has other interests such as knitting and cooking that we fit into the day. She is also an avid reader and is currently devouring the Boxcar Children Mystery series.

Noah is in 2nd grade and is doing: Saxon 2 Math, Phonics(Explode the Code series and daily reading), Spelling, Handwriting, and American History. His weekly outside classes include Bible Study Fellowship and Karate(his 3rd year). He is presently a Gold Striped Belt! His present interests include: US Presidents(don't even get him started~he has them memorized in order and knows lots of interesting facts on most of them), the upcoming elections(he was a bit disappointed to realize he can't run for president), and shooting hoops in the driveway. :-)

We are also chronically watching history and science type videos from the library. There are series on: the human body, weather, famous Americans, states and capitals, Great Explorers, different countries, scientists, animals in different biomes, Native American Indians, and the list goes on...

Anyways, that's a little peak into our schooling. I love my students!
