Sometimes when life gets really hard and getting through school seems like such a struggle, I can forget just how great homeschooling is. Today has been a wonderful reminder for me of just how blessed I am to spend precious time with my family and other homeschooling families. The Valentine skate party was wonderful. I feel so much better after getting to visit with the super moms in our group. I really do think we have the best group around!!! :) We may be small in number but we are large in blessings! The decorated boxes the kids brought were simply the sweetest. They had such a great time giving out their valentines and visiting with friends. My girls will be digging through their boxes for quite a while "oooh-ing" and "aaah-ing" over all the goodies they received. Speaking of goodies, we had some moms bring some super snacks! Delicious!! All those home-made goodies and so little time!!!
Be sure and set aside some time on your calendar to be at the outings we have coming up. The March field trip will be to the Knuckleheads Gym. It looks like a great place to wear the kids out so the trip home will be nice and quiet (unless they are loud snorers! :) My kids are already making plans to tackle the rock wall. The 4-H and Food, Fun & Fitness meetings are on for March but there will be no 4-H meetings in April. Our fund raiser for St. Jude Children's Hospital will be in April. Also, in April we will be taking the CAT test and having our Graduation ceremonies. Before we turn around it will be time for our end-of-the-school-year skate party. Time sure does go by fast!! If you'd like to get more information on our group or any of these events just leave a comment and I'll get in touch with you.
