It's Been a Busy Couple Months!

We have had a pretty busy September and October!  Home schooling is going great.  We have been focusing a lot of time on this, hence the lack of posting.  But I think that we are into a routine, so I hope we are back in action with a lot of fun and posts to come!  So here's a little peek at what we have been up to.

We went apple picking at Miller's Apple Hill.  

We had some creative fun at the Cleveland Art Museum.

Then there was pumpkin picking at Pickering Hill Farms.

We always love the circus!!!

And we've had a couple of nice afternoons just hanging out!!

So we are still loving each other and loving life!!!

We're Getting Into Our Groove

We have two weeks under our belts and we started week three of homeschooling today.  You might have noticed that the absence of posts.  Never fear, the fun didn't stop!  I just wanted to make sure that I put my complete focus on making the easiest transition to our new normal.  I am happy to report that it has been a success so far!

The first two weeks of school were filled with a so many "firsts" and "news".  We did our first lessons online and offline.  Made a few mistakes but hopefully learned from them!  We met our wonderful kindergarten  teacher, Mrs. Clark.  We had a blast at the back to school picnic, meeting so many great OHVA families in our area.  What a busy first two weeks of school it has been!

Over the weekend we finally took a moment to breath and absorb.  Now that we got our feet wet with homeschooling, we were able to get back into our family fun groove a bit!  We took full advantage of all the weekend had in store for us.

Friday night marked Steve's 20th High School Reunion.  We had a nice dinner.  Then we spent most of the evening reminiscing and trying to forget how old we are actually getting!

Saturday morning was a rain out for the start of the kids punt, pass, kick football.  But that was okay. We did get to talk to coach Jim and find out what the season will entail.  Then a little time on the playground.  In the afternoon, Steve continued his reunion activities while the kids and I spent some time at the WECPTA Membership Drive.  Shout out to the the great moms and dads of the WECPTA who helped put on a fabulously fun family event!!  

After a brief break to eat dinner, we headed to Amazone for some fun sliding around.  I get tired just looking at the kids.  Then we ended the night spending some time with our great friends in Ms. Jen, Mr. Nate and Owen and Amanda.  Thanks for inviting us over!!

Sunday, after church, was filled with fun in the sun at the beach at Huntington Reservation.  Then a little chilling around to gain enough energy to start the week off right!  

Well there's the recap.  Two weeks of homeschooling down.  Too many more to count.  But that's okay.  Life is an adventure and we are enjoying the ride!!!
