The girlies and I have kept busy with home school. Maimie is enjoying first grade and doing very well. Saidie has been working hard on letter people.

We started introducing letter people last spring and ended at about Mr. F and his funny feet. We have now finished through Mr. M and his munching mouth. It's been a lot of fun doing letter treasure hunts, making letter specific crafts and meals, and playing alphabet games to help Saidie recognize her letters and their sounds.

Jacob and Joseph are keeping busy with homework, robotics, marching band, youth group, ...and minecraft. They enjoyed Homecoming Week, although somehow I didn't end up with any good photos.

Mikaela turned 18 during the last week of September. Her day fell in the middle of the week, so we drove out to see her the Saturday before her birthday.
By the time we arrived and took Mikaela to grab a few things at the local Walmart, it was time for supper. We dined at the Boathouse and enjoyed a brisk walk past all the shops before getting back on the road to head home. It was so nice to spend a little time with Mikaela.
