Playing in the Creek

We completed our homeschool lessons for the 2009-2010 school year on Monday of last week. After working so diligently for the entire year, we were more than ready for our summer break. We celebrated by hanging out with our fellow homeschooling families. We were invited to lunch and fun on one day. Thanks Ms S for inviting us over for a fun end of school party! The next fun day, we spent playing in the river. Our Homeschool "group" found this fun park that backs up to the river. We made a visit last year, and so enjoyed our picnic and fun in the sun on that day. We decided a return trip was definitely in order. So when the date was set, we were more than excited. The threat of rain was in the forecast, but we were blessed with a beautiful day (even though it was a bit muggy). Playing in the water and exploring was the first priority; however, it didn't take long for hunger to set in and picnic time was on. After nourishment, the big kids took off and the littles stayed close to mom. The littles played and played in the creek, pouring water, wading at the edge and exploring all the aquatic life. The older kiddos ventured further out and spent much of their time exploring and creating adventures (hence the lack of older boy pictures...they would rather avoid the camera if they can anyway). We are looking forward to a few more trips out to the river this summer. It is so relaxing for the moms and the kids have a blast getting wet and just being together. Stay tuned for further adventures of the homeschool gang...
