The End of Our School Year- Week 35 and 36

We’ve been super busy these last few weeks, but I told myself I was going finish what I started with my weekly (or sometimes semi-weekly) blogs and manage to make my last update of the year. We’ve done a lot of fun things, including a trip to Nashville to attend the Teach Them Diligently homeschool convention.

A Few Photos From the Last few Weeks:

Josh and Elliot spent the night at the Ranger’s Ballpark for the fan sleepover. They slept on the outfield. These guys are true fans.

We went to go see The Musical Adventures of Flat Stanley at the Dallas Children’s Theater. It was super cute. We can’t wait to go back for another show sometime soon.

We went with a group from our co-op. What a great group of kids!

The Teach Them Diligently convention was held at the Gaylord Opryland in Nashville. It’s such an amazing place! I didn’t see even close to all of it because I spent most of the time hearing speakers, but I was really blessed by all that I experienced there among so many others who desire to give their kids a great education and to bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.

The best part of the convention was spending time with my sister-in-law, Annie, who came all the way from Africa where she and her husband are missionaries. I hadn’t seen her at all in two years, but she has always been an encouragement and support to me when it comes to parenthood and homeschooling.

These two LOVED the Gaylord and have been talking about how much they miss it ever since we left. It was such a fun experience to be in such a cool place, surrounded by a ton of other families just like us!

This week we’re finishing up Roxaboxen, our 50th and last Five in a Row book. Wow, what an awesome journey it has been to learn new things with these wonderful stories! I’ll be starting back at the beginning again next year with Caroline for her Kindergarten year.

We took the rest of last week off after we returned from our trip and were able to enjoy the beautiful weather we’ve been having. We went with some of our friends to go pick strawberries and we had a great time. We couldn’t stop picking all those beautiful berries and came home with quite a basketful!
