Summer 2013 Wrap-Up

There are many reasons that I am glad that school is starting back.  One of them is continuing to share our homeschool journey.  I know I could have blogged all about our summer comings and goings but I just didn’t get to it this summer.  Too much on my plate I guess.  Anyway, here’s a quick recap of the fun we had over the summer through photos and brief descriptons.



We went to the beach with my husband’s whole family — 17 of us in one house.  It was great.   We had beautiful days (#1), rescued a little crab that was having difficulty (#2), and survived Tropical Storm Andrea (#3)


The week after the beach, we had VBS at our church.   These are just a few of the awesome decorations around the church.


The next week in June we had friends visiting from Indiana (#1).  Wyatt and Kevin went to M-Fuge in West Palm Beach.  They had a wonderful week doing missions but the highlight for Wyatt was going to Universal and getting his picture made with Captain America (#2).  While Wyatt and Kevin were away, Leah and I visited my great aunt and her family in the mountains where Leah got to explore a stream (#3) and we went to a mother/daughter overnight camp (#4)



Bowling with the Children’s Ministry at church (#1). We participated in Mission Hartsville where our church spends a week doing intentional missions around our community (#2 & 3), and I got to spend the whole day with my sweet friend from Texas while she was in SC for a week (#4)



Skating with the Children’s Ministry (#1), the kids kept swimming even though swim team took a break (#2), fun with a friend at the new Splash Pad we have in our town (#3), putt putt golf at Myrtle Beach at the end of a Family Mission Day (#4)

school starts

Planning for the upcoming year (#1). Kids getting their school shelves organized (#2).  The first day (#3)

We’ve had 4 days of school this week and so far, so good. I am looking forward to a wonderful year full of blessings and I cannot wait for our co-op to start back in a few weeks.

Thanks for joining me on my journey.

Joy to You!
