Well, now that November is almost over, I'm going to write about some of the things that have been going on around here.
Football - Christopher's team played in the Championship game the first week-end in November. He team was undefeated this year going into the game. It was a beautiful day - and great game too if you were a Saints fan! I loved watching them play and appreciated again the good sportsmanship that is stressed to these young men! It was an excited season!
Praying for a player who is hurt while the game is stopped.
Keepers of the Faith - For the month of November, we worked on the Pie Baking badge. Yum! I think this one is going to be enjoyed by the whole family. The girls learned a variety of things about types of pies and types of crusts. They also made a pie to take home. If you want to read more, you can visit my KOF blog post here.
Field Trip - We had planned to attend a field trip which was cancelled at the last minute. Really last minute due to weather. Since we were already on the road, we made a spontaneous trip to the Science museum. First though, we made a short stop at Krispy Kreme for a yummy mid-morning snack. We watched the doughnuts being made and enjoyed our treats. I had a pumpkin one and it was so yummy. Eliana tried a little of it - though not much.
Next to the Science Museum in Raleigh - a great place for a rainy day (plus it's free!).
This little girl loves to climb and found a little nook behind a display that was just the right size for her. Speaking of size ...
I love photos from behind and this one I thought was really cute of little Eliana and her big friend Dillon.
We attended a program on animals while we were there. The teacher allowed the children to touch some of the animals - a rabbit, snake and bird. Eliana was thrilled with this! Can you see the delight on her face? The teacher was quite taken with Eliana. I like it when other people enjoy my children.
We spent some time in a hands-on nature room. There were discovery boxes, microscopes, dress-up, toys and more! We enjoyed this spotaneous outing with our friends!
Visitors - My Mom and Dad came to visit. We always enjoy spending time with them. Eliana really took a liking to my Dad and spent a lot of time playing with him. I think he really liked that too!
Here are a few more things that I'll post about separately.
*Our FIAR homeschool group's Family Event - an amazing cooperative event!
*Awesome field trip
*An incredible ministry that our family is supporting
We also have some fun upcoming things this week, including Rebecca's birthday in just a few more days! It's hard to believe she is almost 13! My baby is becoming a young woman right before my eyes. She is such a delight to me!
More later - hopefully not too much later. I'll end with a few fun pics of Eliana. She is enjoying this twirly dress. I love her facial expressions!
