Back to homeschool party and busy park days

We had our second back to school party this past week at our local library.  I am thankful our librarian, Ashley allows us to meet here each month.  We get together every month and do a different themed gathering so that we can meet other homeschooling mom’s in our area.  Yes, we do have a large homeschooling group in our bigger town but that is not always an option for everyone.  This is local, its smaller, and it is very laid back.

We did the same thing as we did last year.  We had the children fill in their “All about me” posters and then took a picture with them holding it.  It works for a good memory for that school year. 

Last year we did large sheets of paper and it took a long time to fill them all in, so this year, we cut them in half and it worked.

Here is Autumn’s paper.  She is doing 3rd grade this year.

Jadyn is doing 6th grade this year.

Madelyn is just starting out in first grade. 

Jentzen is doing first grade as well.  He is my “all boy” 🙂

Brooklyn is doing 4th grade this year.

We also did Homeschool Bingo.  They had to go around and find a friend that corresponded with the page.  It was good.

Summer, brought some cookies and we iced them.

I also printed off and read “Would you rather” and they always like answering that.

It was simple and easy.  But it was a good way to connect with others for an afternoon.

We have also been very blessed to be part of a community that just put in a new park!!!

My children are so excited.  We go to our park almost every day.  They love to play and I can walk around on the paved walking path to get some exercise as well.  It has been a great place to connect with other homeschooling families in our town as well.

We had a grand opening ceremony this past weekend.  They had face painting..

Here Lauren, Evan, and Matthew gave out candy and ice cream cups.

They also had funnel cakes, snow cones, and cotton candy.  All free —the children loved that:)  Well mom did too:)

What a great way to spend our afternoon on Saturday—beautiful weather and sugar:)

Then we came home and celebrated Evan’s 17th birthday!  Wow time sure does fly. We had a nice time and it was a great day all around.

The next day, everyone was pretty worn out—sugar crash:) We opted to stay home and relax.  This was what most of them did…..snuggling their kitties and just chilling.  A good lazy fall day:)

Hope your day is just as relaxing as ours was this day:)  Be blessed!
