What's Been Happening?

Isn't this sky amazing?!
This school year is probably our busiest as we're being involved in more things away from home than ever before and we're ramping up the amount of writing we're doing in our studies, which, of course, means more time involved.

So, there hasn't been much time for blogging. Not that blogging is a necessity. It's mostly something I do for fun. But let me do a little catching up now.

Since our history studies are in the Reformation & Renaissance era, Ruthie asked if we could do our writing by candle light one day. When I said that would be ok, she lit a bunch of them, as you can see. That was a fun day. I've taken the notebooking pages that go with our Truthquest History book and had them spiral bound so we could easily write a page on whatever we're reading about. So far, the girls have really enjoyed doing their writing. Faith is doing the "Binder Builder" notebook, which is a collection of lap books put into a 3-ring binder. I'll show these projects as they progress.

Last Saturday we had quite an eventful and exciting day. After the morning's hunting and bagging of a six-point buck, the younger three got to enjoy the free youth flying held at our little local airport. Sarah & Ruth had gotten to do it two years ago, but Faith hadn't been old enough.

 Faith was actually kinda strutting here, though she might not look like it. They enjoyed spotting places they knew in the area as well as a "castle" that can be rented for gatherings. I think it goes for only $3,000 for the weekend. Ha.

Later that evening, most of us went the the street festival at which Grace had been working all day. We got there in plenty of time to witness the Open Mic Contest.
 After wiping the raininess off the keyboard, Grace played a wondrous rendition of a medley of pieces from the Pirates of the Caribbean. She did the best she's ever done it, I think.

Yes, she won the $100 first prize!

And then we went home to celebrate the day with a deer cake, of slightly different design than usual.

  1. Looks like you've been having fun and keeping busy! Well done to Grace for winning the prize, and glad Faith enjoyed her flight - I personally hate small planes, lol! xxx
