A World without walls
everyday life while homeschooling overseas
Andrew and Steve.
Summer is definitely time for family reunions! We had our Hendriksen family reunion, and now it's time for the Hill family reunion! It was completely fun and perfect! We started off the day by renting an entire swimming pool park for just the family!! Wow!!! It was SO much fun! The best part, though, was Andrew. We were prepping the kids before heading in to the pool by telling them that EVERY person in the pool would be someone they were related to! That's pretty cool. So as soon as we got in, Andrew just started running up to people and hugging them tightly around the knees and exclaiming, "It's SO nice to meet you!!" So cute!! He sure made a lot of friends! :) What a kid!
After the swimming, we headed over to a huge city park where they'd rented a place outside to sit and eat and do all sorts of fun activities ( like a raffle--where Claire picked a Book of Mormon and a scripture case as her prize! What a kid!!) The kids played at the park and had a marvelous time. That's the happiest I've seen Peter since we moved. (Poor kid isn't handling the move very well AT ALL!!)
It was amazingly fun and we loved being able to see so much of the family and reconnect with people! A HUGE thank you to all those who worked tirelessly to organize such a great and memorable event for such a big family! :)
Who Am I?
As a Stay At Home Mom of 4 wonderful children, I have the amazing opportunity not only to home school them, but to do so in many different places! I am married to the most amazingly wonderful (and handsome) man in the whole world! Together, we seek out, every day, that Joy in the Journey that makes life exciting!
by Dan Brown
I like that the plot twists and turns a lot...and it makes you think. However, I don't appreciate Dan Brown's endings in his books. I find the endings incongruent with the rest of his stories--why make it a romance for the last chapter...
I loved this book. I'm a sucker for fairy tales/fantasy. This was so well written! I can't wait to read all the rest of her books!
I'm reading this one again. I liked it the first time I read it. I'm still liking it for the second time around. I like all of Shannon Hales' books. **Still lots of fun the second time around! I do like this book for a comfortable...
