Week in Review 2016: #16


We did it!!! We signed a contract to build our new house. It only took about a year to do, but it's a done deal. A 5% non-refundable deposit has been made, and we're totally doing this.

This week we also went strawberry picking and visited farm animals. The weather was beautiful and we all had a fantastic time.

The children have been most excited about going camping this weekend with our church group, but last night we made the decision to cancel. The area where the campground is located is expecting thunderstorms today and tomorrow. I promised Bridget and George that they can still have a campout in the living room tonight and sleep in their sleeping bags. While living room camping is not as much fun as a campground with canoes, a fire for roasting marshmallows, and lot's of friends to play with, this did at least soften the blow and they're now looking forward to it.


In order to catch up, we're now doing both science and history daily rather than on opposite days. For history, we're in India. In order to help us study India this week, we borrowed a few fun books from the library.
