We had to get some milk but on the way we got a little side tracked

We went out to get some milk last week and were a little side tracked. We decided we would go and take a walk on the beach. Here is a picture of my three cuties.Little Man was happy he found this big stick!

Not so happy that mom kept taking his picture!

"Mom, take a picture of my beautiful hair blowing in the wind."-Silly boy

Finally, after many years I was able to get a picture of Silly boy without some silly face!

It was really windy! My sweet girly!

She was laughing because I kept taking her picture.

Sandy tootsies!

Little Man found this teeny tiny rock and thought it was very special.

Brothers and Sister- I just love to watch them grow closer everyday!

Free E-Cookbooks

Here is a link I found on another blog to download free e-cookbooks. There are about 14 free e-cookbooks and also books to purchase. I know I am always looking for new recipes and inspiration in the kitchen!

It's the Final Countdown

We have two more weeks until our summer break is over. We have really enjoyed our break. I think everyone is ready and looking forward to getting back into routine. My daughter said to me yesterday,"TWO MORE WEEKS! I am ready to start now." Well isn't that what every homeschooling mother wants to hear. I think taking this time off has really made them appreciate our learning time(let's just hope that last).
I have come up with our schedule for the new school year.

7:00 wake up, morning chores
7:30-8:00 breakfast and clean up
8:00-8:30 dress and mom shower
8:30-9:00 Bible
9:00-9:45 Language Arts
9:45-10:10 Recess/Snack
10:10-10:55 Mathematics
10:55-11:40 Science
11:40-12:30 Lunch
12:30-1:15 History/Geography
1:15-1:45 Oral reports, speeches, and presentations
1:45-2:15 Reading
2:15-3:00 P.E

I am getting ready and excited! I am praying for a successful school year!

Playing with photos

I bought Adobe Photoshop to edit my photos. It seems to be very complicated to me. I found this photo editing website on a blog I visit . It is very user friendly and I am really enjoying how the photos turn out. For free you are able to upload five photos at a time and use some of thier options. You can also join for $24.95 per year and have many more options with 100 uploads at a time. Here are my results....

A Shaved Ice Kind of Day

Today was a hot one! We had to get cool, so we went up to the local seed company for some shaved ice. Hit the spot!

Children's Discovery Center

Last week we went to the Children's Discovery Center. What a great find! The kids had so much fun exploring and pretending. They had numerous exhibits; the human body, my town, Hawaiian and World Culture, toddler area, etc.
B is blowing a giant bubble in the giant bubble maker

M is dressed up in China. "Anyone for tea?"
Here E was dressed up like a jellyfish. He told me he was a scary jellyfish

This is E in the sports room...future ballplayer

In this photo is Justice M
They had all of these rooms set up like parts of a town; the post office, fire dept, police station, grocery store, bank, theater, etc. It was really neat.
