My problem is that my phone is an old, old Apple, and it won't automatically upload to my Google photo storage anymore. It's like I live in between two worlds! At one point things were working, though. And now the uploading has stopped.
(These are taken with my tablet. It's Android, so it works with Google. But I don't take my tablet with me, so I don't have many pictures on it.)
Otherwise, all is well here, mostly. School is going well for my oldest. He is getting all A's at this point. The everyday aspects of public school wears on me. Also the rigid, inflexible attitudes. Yet, there are things they do that are better than my own offerings, namely math and science, so we adapt and move along.
Our homeschool is moving along nicely. We are able to keep up with our reading, which is an accomplishment with Sonlight in high school. Grace loves reading, so I think I have finally found her happy place. She really enjoyed "Romeo and Juliet." Right now she is reading "Jane Eyre." She is also requesting more C.S. Lewis books.
Trevor, doesn't share Grace's love of reading, but is flying through high school geometry at age 12, so I am happy. He has been working on reading "Huckleberry Finn." We read "Tom Sawyer" last year.
Last weekend we stayed in a quaint little cabin at a state recreation area located in a state forest. We had a great time riding our bikes, walking in the woods, and just hanging out together. We had to cancel our Labor Day camping trip due to Ryan having strep throat. That was a first, canceling due to illness.
This weekend we have a bike tour and family reunion. I am bringing a big pumpkin cake, pasta salad, and fruit. We will also get some fried chicken. I am looking forward to seeing my family. I hope I can ride my bike the required 10 miles.
We are busy with AWANA as Trek (Jr. High) leaders. My oldest still does karate. Life is full. I need to find a way to upload some pictures from my phone, but decided not to keep me from writing.
