Koinonia Homeschool Co-op

May 27, 2009

Meara and I LOVE our homeschool co-op! We meet once a week from 9-12. The mom's volunteer to teach a class allowing the children to have many choices each hour to choose from. Some are academic classes while others are just plain FUN classes. This year I taught a scrapbooking projects class the first semester and the second I taught a PE games class with about twelve to fifteen children every week. It was very enjoyable to get to know the children in my class and develop a bond with them. Right before we left for our vacation I found out we weren't having field day this year because no one volunteered to take on the task. I gasped...what?! We NEED a field day for these children to end the school year with a BANG! So, I volunteered. It turned out to be a wonderful event. The weather here had been bad for about two weeks, storming everyday. We had to move the event into the gym but that didn't hinder the excitement or enjoyment.

Disney Vacation

May 26, 2009

We are back from our Disney trip for a couple of weeks now. We came back and everything became a whirlwind. Our homeschool co-op ended that friday. I was busy running to prepare for our field day that I volunteered for at the last minute. It turned out to be so much FUN!! Needless to say, I haven't had a lot of free time to post.

I could sit and watch the castle change colors all night. It is such a beautiful sight! I highly recommend the meal plan. We decided to do that this time. It was well worth the money! We ate some delicious meals and enjoyed seeing the characters.

Out of all the princesses this Belle was the best! She was extremely attentive to Meara. When Meara told her she was her favorite princess she hugged Meara's head with both hands and made a big deal of how precious she was.

We ate dinner with the princesses in Norway at the Akershus Castle.

This was the last day of our vacation...we left Sea World at 4 o'clock to go straight to the airport. We were so tired.
