It is here, our first official day of summer vacation! After 36 weeks of school we finally wrapped up our 4th hear of homeschooling! Hip, hip, hooray! Now we get to enjoy the next 3 months away from the books… kind of. I have always been a big advocate of summer learning and I am working on some great ways to keep my girls reading and learning this summer.
Let’s take a look at this weeks Friday Highlights!
This week on the blog I shared…
AWANA Awards 2017
Wednesday night was the 2017 Awana Awards and this year both girls had their moment on stage! We started Awana when Marissa began the 1st grade and I can hands down say it was one of the best decisions we have ever made. Our girls have learned so much about The Bible and have loved attending Awana club. I hope they continue loving it for many more years to come.
After the Awards presentation Grandma & Papa Newman took us to Braums to celebrate. I sat and watched them eat ice cream (that was sheer will power folks 🙄 ) and Emily told us jokes until I laughed so hard I cried.
I know it’s been forever since I have posted any house updates, but there honestly just isn’t much to share right now. We are pretty much just treading water until we sell our house. Which isn’t going to well really. We had one viewing the first day and then it slowed WAY down. We do have one scheduled for tomorrow though and we are praying more pop up this weekend. I am trying to convince myself that the RAIN has been a huge contributor to that and that we can make this FSBO work out. God’s timing is perfect.
However, we did go out to our land earlier this week and goodness have things changed out there. It was BEAUTIFUL and so green. I wanted to share a few photos that I snapped.
Lately I’ve had a few chances to work on my photo skills and take some photos for people. This past week it was Senior photos for a girl from our home school co-op. I in no way, shape, or form consider my work to be professional. But it is fun to be able to help others out.
Happy Cinco De Mayo!
I’ll be honest, we usually don’t celebrate Cinco De Mayo. But when it lands on a Friday and that Friday also happens to be our very first school free day, we party. We have a little fiesta planned to celebrate tonight and my girls couldn’t possibly be more excited.
Tell me your Cinco plans in the comments!
Have a great weekend friends!
We’ll see you back here on Monday!
