While Elliot and I were doing Mailing May and learning about the postal service, we used these little mailboxes I found in the dollar section of Target to send mail to each other.

Elliot’s latest interest is cooking. He loves to be my little student as I make dinner. Here he was learning how to sauté veggies for the soup.

Our sweet little Mabel fits right in in this environment. She’s appears to be book-lover like the rest of us. When you sit down with a book, you can bet she’ll come running to snuggle while reading.

    How did you find your homeschool group? That is awesome that Elliot loves to help with dinner. :) Oh, and our kitty looks exactly like yours. :)

    Melissa,
    We do stuff with a couple different groups. The main one I found by searching online. The rest have been by word of mouth. I keep meeting people while at classes for homeschoolers or things like that and they end up telling me what they’re involved in. I’m amazed by how many opportunities are out there.

    Yes, your cat does look like ours! I remember thinking your cat was so BEAUTIFUL! I thought about him/her when I first saw our kitty. What’s your kitty’s name?
