Catching up {homeschool, kids sewing lessons, swim}

I didn't get a chance to finish blogging last week so the following is all of last week and part of this week

For Friday Fun day last week I took the kids to a ceramic shop called 'Next of Kiln.' They each got to choose something small to paint and soon they will be ready to pick up! I'll take pictures of the final product when we get them back.

Saturday night I went on a photography walk with Maliyah, just taking pictures of whatever we saw along the way. I explained to her about Sillouhette shots and took a few to show her.

Maliyah is a great walking partner. She is pretty good at keeping up if I'm walking fast and it's always fun to have someone to talk to!

Thursday of this week was a BUSY day! In the morning our Preschool group had a fieldtrip at the Bowling Alley. I think the favorite part was going in the back to see the machines that pick up the pins.

This machine is what strips and oils the lanes.

We went from there, straight to swim lessons. I think it's funny that Jayden looks scared in this picture. He is on the Diving board...but he LOVES the diving board. Not sure what the face it all about

This little guy is just too cute. He was adopted and brought here a year ago from Africa. He is so tiny, but today was the FIRST day that he jumped off the diving board on his own. It's amazing how much we can learn from kids. He has been scared to death of jumping off that thing but after watching the other kids had developed enough faith that the teacher would catch him.

After swim the kids ate lunch in the car as we drove around delivering these:

Poor Baby Madalynn is still not doing really well and is all the way up in portland. Her Dad stays here for work and drives there every weekend to help mom with the kids. The gas is killing them! So we are trying to help ease that burden a little bit. We have a box at Pet Medical Center, Blue Dot, and CED. If you want to help them out please find one of those boxes! Or, if you know a great place to leave one of these boxes, I still have two more.

Thursday afternoon we also had sewing lessons here at the house and History. Sewing classes are going really well and I've been typing up our curriculum as we go so if you are ever intrested in what we do, or for lessons for young kids I would be happy to email them to you.  It was a busy day, but full of good things!
