Last weekend, Mother's Day weekend, we went camping in our Travel Trailer...All was good, for the most part. Our BFF's who normally meet up with us camping had to cancel at the last minute as one of their children was too sick to be away from home 8( This also resulted in our children being sad 8( and "bored"...lol It did rain most of the day on Saturday but we made the best of it...walking in the rain never melted anyone I know 8)
Eric took this entire week off and we have been busy beavers with yard work, landscaping, painting projects and more...we decided at the last minute to take the entire week of school off (HUZZAH) but will be getting back into the swing of things on Monday (booo)....Anyway, here are a few pics from our weekend...
Wont you join me over at Homegrown Learners to see what others are up too? Enjoy the weekend!

Another week flew by....we were a very busy family!
Started with last weekend - it was our Sammie's 4th Birthday and she had not one but TWO celebrations!
Saturday with her friends at the gym - Olympic Gymnastics Party
and then on Sunday with the family - Cinco de Mayo Party! Both were a lot of fun to style for her!
Field Trip to a small zoo this week in NJ - beautiful day!
Started back with our Little Passports curriculum with a "trip to Australia"
Another "field trip" with an outing to our local Creamery was in order! The views are just breathtaking. The sky was SO blue that day!
As you read this post we are preparing the Camper (aka travel trailer) for Mother's Day Weekend camping trip! (pray rain holds off!)
I hope you get a chance to thank a Mother this weekend for all she does - even if it's not your own mom - support another mom!
Can't wait to blog about our 1st Camping adventure in our camper - hope some good stories to tell!

WOW Where did this first week of May go? We have been traveling, busy with outside fun and more...
Last Friday (for an overnight). Zachary and I went to PA to a Home Show - that had a LEGO Competition. Meet up with friends, made new friends and had a great time!
We also hosted the All American BBQ at our church this past weekend. The kids all played, ate hot dogs and some great fellowship was happening!
Our birds and trees are bursting with SPRING! We have 5 pair of cardinals in our yard and they are hungry little birdies! The trees are all in bloom too. Makes me smile!
Also this week, I had my stitches removed (ouch) and working on my lesson plans for May! We travel this month as our first camping trip with our new travel trailer is a week away! Mothers Day - getting together with our BFF's and more! WOW! In addition - two birthday parties we are hosting this weekend! Our youngest, Samantha, turns 4! HUZZAH!
(last year's party was our Woodland party - you can check it out HERE)
How was your week?

Welcome to the end of the week - it's been a do-z of one!
The week ended last Friday with our Kids Bowl Free program. This year we decided to buy the bowling shoes for the kids instead of
$ 10.50 a pop to rent each time. Did the math, worked out! We met up with some other friend also.
On Monday I went in for my surgery to remove some cancer from my face. It's been a challenge to keep up with school, household chores, and taking care of the family. It's only been thru the Grace of God, my prayer warriors (and a few good friends who helped with meal drop offs) that I have gotten thru the first 5 days. There are 26 stitches total (inside and surface). It itches all the time and it's not the prettiest thing in the world to look at 8( On the plus side, they were able to get all the cancer out! HUZZAH for that! Stitches come out on Monday and the healing process will continue. Doctor said that the scars will heal and fad over the years.
I was able to get outside and snap a few pics this week as the weather has been beautiful!
We had a major issue with our truck this week - the starter went 8( At least it went in our driveway! So without a car for a few days, the kids missed their gym classes 8(
In School, (my mom taught on Monday) Earth Day....planting and more on recycling and reusing! Next week is a catch up week and tie up lose ends before we march into May! May brings a 4th birthday for Sammie, Cinco de Mayo gathering, Memorial Day and more!
We are off tomorrow to a Lego Competition in Pennsylvania for an overnight adventure with another homeschooling friend! Fingers crossed Zachary and our friend, Christopher, place either 1st, 2nd or 3rd!
Ok gotta run - things are happening int he other room that don't sound very good...until next week -
Be Blessed and join me at Mary's for Collage Friday!
