I told you last week I had a big announcement . . . .
I'm a new member of the Homeschool Mosaics team! I'm so excited about it and I'll be sharing
"Exploring Science - Naturally" with you. We love science and we love exploring - so it's a great fit!
Stir fry for Kids in the Kitchen - link up your favorite recipes each Tuesday!
Share pictures and ideas of what your family is up to this summer!
We are doing some bird watching - these cute Mama and baby quail were spotted in our yard this week
We met new friends at the pool and they invited us to join the Young Eagles
I'm so glad we did! They gave the kids a tour of the airport - taught then a bit about aviation
and then - took them for a plane ride!
Now all the boys want to be pilots!
"R" is for Reach for the Sky!
ok- so that may not be a perfect fit - but "aiming" and "reaching" are similar - right?
How about - "R" is for Reaching High - Really Exciting! - or "Rrrrrrrrrrrrrrr" (that would be the engine and the noise I've been hearing around my house constantly since the experience!)
"R" is for Ready for Take-off!
We are blogging through the alphabet with Marcy from Ben and Me
Checking the weather program with the pilot before their flight - they learned how the pilots
check weather systems specially for each take off
The EAA has chapters all over the country.

I've managed to get a few things accomplished this week -
1. Organization - I put a dent in the homeschool organization - we are moving most of our homeschool room back upstairs - I've also gotten through a HUGE stack of paperwork - met with the accountant and ordered copies of official documents for our records
2. Schedule - I am balancing things a bit better - despite physical limitations - these summer storms are rough on my RA, but I'm moving around some anyway and getting the boys out for $1 movie day, bowling, and the pool each week
3. Spiritual life- I've had some sweet ladies on my heart - I am enjoying our Proverbs 31 group and the encouragement and honesty from some of the women there is amazing to me. I am praying for each of them and others God has sent my way.
