In Which We Finish Our School Year With A Party

Have I mentioned how glad we are to be done?
A couple of times?

We've been homeschooling for three years now.
Not veterans, but no longer novices.
We've settled into a groove that works for us.
Not a rut, I hope!
But a pattern we can all live with.

Want to know what we've been doing this year?

I'll show you.

Let's start with Gunnar...
... I forgot his handwriting book, Draw Write Now, and his new math book (Saxon 3),
but you get the idea.

Then we have Tate...
... forgot Draw Write Now and an extra grammar book.

And, lastly, Wyatt...
... forgot Vocabulary from Classical Roots.

We've been busy.

So we had a party, on Sunday, with Grampa and Gramma Grasshopper,
and Aunt Tami and Uncle Dave.
You know, a really fancy party,
with hot-dogs on the grill.

And the boys were rewarded with these.
Okay, they weren't that big, but big!

And, in the spirit of a previous post,  I'm proud of the boys for their diligent work, their persistence, and their interest and enthusiasm.

Don't they look happy?

How about a close up?
There we have a 3rd grader, an 8th grader, and a 6th grader!

In all their glory.

Normal to weird in under 5 seconds.

♥ Love it all! ♥

But I'm thinking it's "Restrained to Normal in 5 seconds" =)

(btw, my eyes got really big when I read 5 POUNDS on the candy bar label ;-) )

I think theirs were ONE pound, which is still a lot of chocolate, but they're rationing it out. ;D

Well done! I home schooled my girl for a few years and used some of the same books. Your post made me miss it.
I've been reading your blog for a couple weeks now, but I don't think I've left a comment before now. Thought I'd pop in and say hi (c=

Well, you HAVE been busy! I love the last line.

We're having a very fancy end of year party, too. With hot dogs on the grill. :) Must be something about the end of school that brings the thought of hot dogs.

Summer, here we come!!!

What a fun way to display all their hard work! I'm going to have to remember that, so that we can do scrapbook pictures like that from time to time.

This post would be a great addition to the Classical Homeschooling Carnival, if you're willing to submit it!
