Summer Vacation


Jemima and Zion in the yard...working in their nature journals.


Galilee at a Mad Science field trip learning about electricity.


As "school" winds down for the majority of those around us...and we ourselves say "bye for now" to our co-op days...I can't help but get excited when planning all the fun things I'd like to do with the kids over the summer months. There's swimming and diving lessons, sewing and Latin dance classes, jewelry making, To Kill A Mockingbird to be read, as well as Hitty, My Brother Sam is Dead, The Bronze Bow, Kira Kira, and Rules. There's a trip to Karchner's (sp?) Caverns I'd like to hit and maybe even a few days in Rocky Point...where Zion and Dad want to build a sand castle and collect seashells. I'm thinking...maybe L.A....definately math... if not every day , well then every other day...drums, guitar...and lots of good films. Games and good times with friends...conversations over meals...maybe even ones prepared by the kids. We'll write about everything we do and see..we'll take pictures and draw pictures. We'll make memories and collect memories. Kinda sorta like all year long.

I know, our summers seem very much like our year too!! To Kill a Mocking bird is on Alex's list to read and I really want to read it as our family read aloud. She won't let us. Maybe more of the Little Britches series. Yes on music, math and reading, lots of baking, swimming,scrap booking, camping,cousins, any ideas for swim teams lessons? Hope your kids come to music camp. See you Saturday...
