Back to School

New year.  Fresh start.  Refreshed and ready to go, well at least I am.  The boys are never anxious or ready to begin.  I enjoy the much needed summer break, but I am usually ready to begin the new year.  I really love teaching them and learning new things myself.  I have learned so much the second time around.  Logan is in the fifth grade this year and Lucas is in second.  Today as I post, we are actually on our sixth week, but I'm a little behind:)

A little math review for Lucas.
We started a new language curriculum this year.  Logan is getting acquainted with it on the first day.

When I went upstairs for something, they got my camera and made a few pictures.  When I came back downstairs they were giggling.  I saw why when I saw my camera.  They make me laugh every day.
Poor Lane.  They took a picture of his butt.

Lane's first day back to Preschool.
This year is much better than last!!  He no longer cries:)


CentriKid Retreat

This year we took a group of kids to a CentriKid Retreat at the end of the summer to Norman Park Conference Center in Georgia.  This was a first for our church, and I was so glad we had the opportunity to take our kids!  It was such a wonderful experience for the kids and myself as well.  It is such a well organized and Spirit-led camp.
While we were checking in, they played games with the kids.  
The theme was very applicable for kids.  It was a video game theme.  I thought it was a great way to share the gospel with kids!
Logan was called on stage to do a relay game.

All the kids got to sign up for three different track times.

OMC (Organized Mass Chaos).  This was a massive relay race divided up by grades.  It was very messy!!!!!
We had a great group of kids!

I'm so glad we got to go.  Logan had such a GREAT time!  I am looking forward to going next year!!
