It's funny because we just meet people we've been in school with all year and now the year is over. We have been on a few field trips, but my son and I haven't really made friends with anyone. My daughter almost always makes friends.
We won't be in the virtual academy next year unfortunately. I'm going back to work (I hope).
So we say farewell to our teacher and nine years of homeschooling. It has been fun and a challenge.
So we played a little kick ball in the morning. One team needed a player so I volunteered. The boys said I didn't have to kick. They would do that.
I told them I knew I could kick the ball, but I wasn't sure how fast I could run. They agreed to supply me with a "pinch runner" (I love it). I used to be the "pinch runner" now I need one.
I managed a few homeruns with a fast "pinch runner". It was really fun(ny)! We needed lot's of water breaks though.
My son is running to first base. That's him with his hand in the air.
Our teacher is blowing bubbles. They had lot's of bubbles for the kids.
They also had this cool bubble machine. It would blow bubbles that had bubbles inside of them. This little boy came with his sisters. He was so cute and so good. My son is in the brown shirt reaching for bubbles.
These middle school kids were going wild over bubbles, chasing them and jumping for them. I guess we're never too old for bubbles. I know I was enjoying them, but I am very young at heart and maybe in other ways some folks might say.
There was a small lake called Bradley Lake with a nice path all the way around it and a few geese. There were twenty-two goslings with the adults there. Just a few geese and lot's of evidence that they've been there. No swimming in this lake.
They thought they were quite funny and that they could ruin the boys' fun. Did the boys even notice? Heck no!
The girls had alot of fun that day and put phone numbers in their phones (not my kid, no phone yet). We wrote down phone numbers the old fashioned way.
Here are the three Musketeers. They were such nice girls. I hope that they can get together this summer sometime.
The teacher (in blue top & hat) chatted with the kids for awhile and encouraged them and congratulated them on all the hard work they've done this year. The kids shared a little and then we all walked around the lake with the teacher and some parents.
About halfway around the lake was this clearing with a funny shaped tree in it. A good place for a picture to be taken. It took a few minutes and a few shots to get this one. I love it!
Well the pic nic was over, but we had plans. There were two letterboxes in this park and we were going to find them.
To see those pictures, come back tomorrow. See more stories and pictures about letterboxing on this blog or visit Erica at Scottsville. We both have some fun stories and pictures.
Great times to remember. I hope my kids appreciate this journal of our lives.
