The one in which there are a lot of playdates....

Ryleigh is 38 Months and Braeden is 11 Months

So...my original plan was to take a "break" from sit down project school...for the month of July...and resume "school" in August...I am still good with this plan, as I am using the time to create printables and projects and fun activities that I need to sew...HOWEVER...Ryleigh is not interested in a break and has started demanding projects...I try to give her one a day -most of the time I don't take pictures...gasp! .... but this is not cutting it with her...perhaps we will resume a little earlier than intended? We still have the Music, Art and Dance classes each week...so its not like her schedule is completely out the window....

This week we saw lots of friends...and had a lot of fun...

Some of the babies from music class....
Ryleigh with her friends...this picture makes me smile...
I believe they are all saying "macaroni"...
they are smushed on the coffee table...

Here they are 5 minutes later when they realized they all didn't fit on the coffee table...
Ryleigh riding her trike in the house...
it was HOT outside and I really didn't want to go out...

Braeden...mid flip of the sit and spin...
he usually likes to try and flip it when Ryleigh is riding it...
Granny came to visit and she took Ryleigh outside to ride her tricycle...
Braeden likes to play with the little people and weebles....
he loves to put them in the barn and then take them back out..
.and then put them back in...and so on...until he just tips the whole thing over...

Aunt "lissa" brought the baby over to play and here is Braeden getting a better look...
Ryleigh with her friend Patrick...
Ryleigh working on her stART project...we did Toilet Paper Mache...
We had a play-date at the park:
Ryleigh and Braeden swinging...
Braeden...wondering why I am not pushing him...
and how did I get the camera out of the stroller so quickly...

Thinking of taking a nap...
Asking me if I am seriously still taking pictures...
At this point Braeden has decided to ignore me...
and look for other people to push him on the swing...
Ryleigh and Elena on the teeter totter...yes they are on the same side...

I love your captions for the park pictures. I love the fact that children do always want to be learning. Seems silly to designate part of the day and year as "school" So glad we're homeschooling.
I hope they won't ever lose that desire to learn, as have my 3 older public schooled children- "What?!? You want me to learn, it's not school time!"

Hello, I have been doing a little blog hopping tonight & found you... and I am glad I did. I love all your info on homeschooling. I always wanted to homeschool my older 3 but I couldn't stay home. Now I am a sahm & my youngest is 15 months. I really, really want to homeschool her! I want to read as much as I can from all of you homeschooling moms out there :)

Have a great weekend!

What a fun week you had!! It is a small world that you grew up not far from here! We have friends who are in the reenactments as well. Now wouldn't it be something if we both knew them. Have a great weekend!

Fun Week. Little Sweets likes riding her tricyle too. She doesn't know how to pedal yet though.
