Our Homeschool week - Wrap up - Birthday week
I had a birthday this week - and my sweet friend of many years - Roselle Agles - baked me a fun birthday cake - It's my Gulf and sunset! One of our favorite things is watching the sun sink below the horizon!
Our children are growing fast - I'm thrilled to have special friends in my life who are here through thick and thin. I'm blessed to have people who know me well - and love and believe in me. God is good!
Thank you Roselle for such a sweet surprise. Thanks to all of you who wished me happy birthday via facebook and phone calls. It was great fun hearing from you.

We did our homeschool student pictures and linked to the ihomeschoolnetwork to share
We've been doing some bird watching as a Mourning Dove who hatched in our yard last year returned here again and built her own nest in a tree in our yard. We have been able to watch the eggs hatch - well only one hatched and we named her Lucky Lu-Lu. Watching her learn to fly has been fun and educational.
We are getting back into a more normal routine around here - easing our way into a full school schedule.
I'm teaching the boys to play chess! Walker is especially loving it and really excited about it- the other boys are also catching on and enjoying learning about how each of the pieces move on the board. I LOVE the way this book lays it all out little at a time and sets up "mini- games" that they are already able to play!
Chess is Child's Play - by Laura Sherman I cannot say enough about it- I'll have a full review soon
