Day 11 and 12

Day 11

I have to say this week has made me extremely thankful for the opportunity to homeschool my blessings. We have the opportunity to learn about things and go and explore them in person instead of reading about them in a book. Before we went to see the Grand Canyon we rented books from the library`and learned all about the canyon and the kids were so excited to see and learn more about it in person. We did the same thing for Hawaii. Noah is learning Botany this year and so we learned about the different flowers in Hawaii. The first thing the boys spotted when we got here were some of the flowers we learned about :) I love having the freedom to pick up and travel whenever we please and I love that we get to choose what we want to study based on what they are excited to learn about. Thankful for their co-ops and the friends they have become so close with because of our decision to homeschool.

Day 12

Thankful for Grandpa Great. Grandpa Great is 93 years old and today we learned that he had a mini stroke and is in the hospital. Thankful to the Lord that it did not effect his speech or anything serious but he is very weak and has a leaky heart valve. Thankful that he is recovering well. Thankful that my kids still have a great grandfather and that he has lived such a long wonderful life this far. They have been able to gain so much history and wisdom from this wonderful man. I pray we get many more years with him.
