Time Marches On

Hi Everyone! I thought I would say hello and let everyone know that we have made it into the new house.  We are still in boxes, but we have everything under our new roof!  YAY!!!!

Here is what we have been doing (between packing, carrying, and unpacking) over the last 4 weeks…

Chillaxin between helping dad carry in loads to the new house.

Relaxing in her very own room! (Who cares if it’s just  mattress on the floor?  LOL)

Helping clean the kitchen before we unpacked our dishes.

Getting in to EVERY box and exploring!
Doesn’t everyone wear a hoodie with a bow tie and suit jacket???

Hanging out with our firends at American Girl Club…
We have made several trips to IKEA for all the things you need when you move.

We went on field trip to a pizza parlour!

Mom taught a How To Begin Lapbooking class for our homeschool friends. :^)

Big and small, everyone made a lapbook to take home!

Everyone seemed to enjoy the lapbooking class!

We went to a construction themed birthday party!

We went to a Mad Science demonstration at Chick-fil-A.
I LOVE Mad Science!

We learned how to weave at American Girl Club.

Here is the cardboard weaving my daughter did.

We got our costumes for Fall Festival.

We have watched the leaves change colors.

We had our Awana Grand Prix races!

Awana Grand Prix is FUN!

Both my boys actually won 3rd place in their division! (My daughter got 7th in hers.)
The middle car with all the googly eyes is my 5 year olds!  LOL 

So as you can see, we have been busy, busy, busy!  The one thing about life is that even when you try to take time to focus on one thing (like moving) time marches on!  As the Amy Grant song says…

Time carries on;
I guess it always will,
But deep inside my heart
Time stands still.

The one thing I have learned as a mom is that no matter how busy life is the memories keep piling up.  I always pray that God will help me not to get too caught up in what "has to be done" because I don’t want to miss the little blessings of life. 

Happy Homeschooling,


P.S.  I know I promised to continue to post about American Girl Club, and I will.  I just honestly have not had any time.  But, stay tuned and I will hopefully get those written in the next week or two.

    Congrats on your move. Looks like your family has been full of so many hands on learning opportunity. My daughter is peering over my shoulder exclaiming, "What, they get to do so many crafts?" ha ha 🙂
