We signed up Eliana for a special needs sports team. They played t-ball and soccer. She tried a little t-ball, but mostly wanted to just "kick a ball". They had a song for the group and every time I played the cd, Eliana very happily said, "I kick a ball!". It was a great group and we enjoyed being a part of it. I hope we'll be able to do more with them in the future.
After our tour, we were able to buy meat and spend time picnicking with our friends. This is a really fun visit if you are local. The kids had a great time playing.
Our book club read this month was The Traitor's Wife by Allison Pataki. An interesting book of historical fiction about Benedict Arnold's wife and the role she played in his actions. Its based on some true accounts and certainly gives much food for thought as to how this might have really happened.
I loved watching my children become fascinated with a country and working to learn more about it. So, from the pictures, can you figure out which country these guys did? You can guess or peek at the answer at the end of this post.)
And make a piece by hand (or several).
TIme for Easter pics. We travelled to VA to spend Easter with our friends. This has been a fun tradition for many years. This year, we brought Emily (Christopher's girlfriend) with us. She is a delight! She and her mom made this treat for us! Isn't this great?! We love deviled eggs in my family and what a treat to have them in such fun colors. Oh, and they were yummy too.
There was a massive egg hunt.
Bounce house, snacks and more. Fun morning!
Tired yet of reading all of these and looking at so many pictures? Bless you if you have hung in this long. :) Hope you enjoyed them. Yes, she is tired - and fully asleep. She crawled into the chair beside me and fell fast asleep.
More soon on some of our FIAR co-ops in April and then it will be on to May. :) Really wanting to share some superhero party pictures soon!
Hope you are having a great summer.
