July 25th-31st

Highlights from this week include:

*Finished up learning about
Knights and Princesses
with the littles

*Spending an evening planning some more 
for the school year with my neighbor friend

Our families will be spending about 30 weeks together
this year learning about
Native Americans, Pioneers, the Civil War,
Rocks, and the Human Body.

I should have all of the lesson plans completed
in a couple of weeks,
and I plan on sharing the plans here
when I am finished.


*Ate out in downtown K-town
on Sunday afternoon with new church members

*Cooked up a new flavor of coffee
for Super Dad-
Vanilla Chai Spice

*learned a bout the Ocean
with the littles this week

(I will post more about all of our fun later...)

*Visited with my brother, his wife,
and her pregnant belly
when they came through from 
New Jersey

*Finished up constructing
with the kiddos

(Post to be up soon...)

*Observed some crazy critters
in the 'hood... this neon caterpillar

*Played with our neighbor's new
pet bunny

*Girlies began work on their
entry for the
2nd Annual Cupcakes in the Park contest
