End of School Year, Feeling Old, and Fishing

We have pretty much finished the 2010-2011 school year. This school year has seemed so long. I have to say I dont think I was completely happy with my choice of curriculum this school year, it just seemed like somthing was missing. I have almost finalized the choices for next school year, hopefully to get this posted in the next couple of weeks. I can say I am very excited about the choices made so far. My plan is to start back to school the week after July 4th.

My niece turns 18 this week and by the way is making me feel really old. And in a couple of weeks she will be graduating from high school.Where has the time gone. I remember the day she was born and I couldn't wait for the chance to hold my first niece. She has gone from a beautiful little baby to a beautiful young woman.  I am so very proud of her and all she has done. She is such a sweet girl and I love her so much.

A couple of weeks ago we took the youth from our church fishing and they all had a lot of fun. My kids really enjoyed themselves, not only did they get to fish but they also got to spend time with their friends.

When God Created My Toes

When God created my toes, did he make them wiggle? Did he know I'd giggle? Did he have to hold his nose, when God created my toes?

This charming picture book allows children to imagine what it was like when God created them. From the top of their heads to the tips of their toes, they will explore and understand God's delight in their lives.

Through rhyming lines and vivid illustrations children will gain confidence and self-esteem when they begin to fully realize how perfectly, intricately, and uniquely God made them.

My Review:
The book is full of rhymes and colorful pictures. But honestly I am not crazy about the book. Upon finishing this book I felt as if we were not sure of what we just read. I cant figure out where they were going with this book.  I would not recommend this book to others.

Disclaimer: I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.

Busy Month and Pictures

I havent posted for a whole month, I cant believe that. I have been reading your blogs but I felt I had nothing interesting to blog about. But as I sit here this morning I realized I had a very busy month of April. We went to the beach, my nieces prom, Easter, my nieces 16th birthday, and a funeral. I think we had something every weekend. It looks like May is starting off to be the same way, does it ever slow down?

I thought I would post some pictures from our busy month, there are quite a few of them.
