Painting Pumkins

We brought the pumpkins home and let the kids paint them. Too bad I made a mistake and gave them the wrong paint. The next day they went out to get their pumpkins after they had dried and Pilot came back as a green monster cover from head to tow in paint

Beach Treck

Pilot loves bringing his planes everywhere, even to the beach. This was the coldest windiest day and he still didn't want to wear his jacket.

We followed Jettas footprints from one end of the beach to the other. She loves being the leader.

I just love that the kids are so close to each other. They play so well and take care of one another. I believe that homeschooling will just help us to foster this closeness as they grow older.

Windy Beach Day

This was such a beautiful day at the beach. The wind was so strong that Jetta had to put her skirt on her heat because she din't bring a hat. The unfortunate thing was that right after this, Jetta came down with an ear infection but was able to fight it off with lots of raw garlic and warm oil ear drops.

We spent a lot of time in the pool this summer and Jetta continues to take lessons at another pool. Jetta learned how to tread water, and started to learn to dive as well. Jetta loved going on the diving board and did such a great job. We only had a few close calls where she almost jumped on top of another child because she jumped whithout looking.

Money in the Bank

I took the kids to bank to get them a bank account. Each month when they get their statement in the mail they count their money and take it to the bank to make a deposit. They are really enjoying the whole process.

"It was a very very very fun time because we got to get new piggy banks and we got to go in and see where they put our money. I am saving all my money so I can take all my friends and family to a movie and ice cream because I thought it would be fun for everyone." Jetta - 5
