We started week 30 this morning and are getting closer to the end of the year 🙂 !!! Our Greek for the Week is demos which means “the people, the citizens”. We learned how Athens was one of the first civilizations to practice a form of democracy and the boys also learned about work and school in Ancient Greece. We started two new read alouds – Aesop’s Fables and Archimedes and the Door of Science. Our copy of Aesop’s Fables came with a CD which is nice because sometimes my voice just needs a break! Our two families that we’ll be praying for this week are the Vaughn’s and the O’Keeffe’s. Our tadpoles are getting bigger and stronger every day – it won’t be long now until we have little frogs hopping around!
We had a fantastic weekend! Justin and Brendan went camping (a special father/son trip) and enjoyed hiking, fishing, kayaking, and learning about how to become a man of God. I’m so blessed to have such an amazing husband and father for my boys! While they were gone, Ryan and I enjoyed a few outings and a fun trip to Kings Dominion with my parents. The weather was perfect!!! Today, I’m thankful for the rain that helps everything grow and washes away the pollen 🙂 !
