A Little bit of what we have been doing

Last week I was getting things back to normal after a trip to Greenville for a 3 day homeschool conference. I enjoyed my time at the conference, and let me just say that Carol Barnier was awesome. She gave so many tips that I cant wait to put to use. The last time I went to a conference I came home with all of the kids curriculum. This time not so much, I only came home with science, Bryannas language arts and BW's next phonics book. So I have quite a bit of research to do to figure out the rest of our next school year. Right now I am looking at doing Galloping the Globe for BW. Seems like I have so much to do, I think we are going to start in July since it is so hot and take a couple of weeks in September and October off. Where are you in your plans for the next school year?

We were invited to attend a study with other homeschoolers about medieval times. Last Thursday was our first time going and the kids had a great time. They talked about for a long time after we left. They talked about castles and made castles last week. This week they get to learn about knights. Cant wait to hear there stories after they finish that day.

This past weekend my wonderful hubby surprised us with a 3 day weekend. We had such a great time with him. We spend 1 of those days out on the town, took the kids out to eat, and went shopping. The other days we celebrated my grandmas birthday (she turned 80) and went to church. Such a great weekend.
