We had a few last hurrah's before Summer officially ended (yes, some of us didn't want it to end), so enjoy these pictures from our fun times!
We were blessed to host the 2013 Christian Heritage Homeschool Kickoff Picnic with the wonderful V. family. It was a blast! Although we only had about three days to prepare everything, it all worked out to be a wonderful event.
Our job was having the organized games. That looks like a pretty organized Frisbee game!
Then there was the Guy's Tug-Of-War.
And Girl's Tug-Of-War.
Innocent bystanders that look kind of guilty...
Thanks to Dave B, we were able to have an unplanned sack race! Dave brought his sacks and asked me if we could add those to the games. I was thrilled because I had wanted to do that, but didn't have the sacks for it!
Noah C. won the Guy's Sack Race. He was fast!
Only four brave girls volunteered to do the Girl's Sack Race!
I'm telling you, the other girls missed out; we had so much fun!
And hurray for short people... I won!
Three Legged Race...
I think this was our most popular game.
Ready, Set, Go!
Jordan and Noah C. won the race, with Eden and Mahala C. right behind them!
Uh oh... it looks like someone didn't make it tied together the whole way!
Crossing the finish line.
A Father-Daughter team.
After all the games, we listened to an excellent message by Mr. Bradrick.
I got to sit by this little guy!
I was honored to be interview in the local newspaper about winning the grand prize with our video, Him and Her. It was a blessing to be able to share about my grandparents, their legacy, and what they mean to me. I was quite excited to see that the article was on the front page of the paper!
Some good friends of ours hosted an End of Summer Ball. It was our first time really trying out our feet at English Country Dancing (we had done a few dances before, but never a whole ball!) and really enjoyed it.
Dancing on the lawn in the sun was just delightful.
Working out the last figures...
The Christmas lights were so pretty!
We danced way into the night, enjoying the company of friends and the last rays of Summer.
