 joey was tired. she crashed like this. hand under her shirt.  she slept in the car for an HOUR after we got home
 the high light of the week for me was park day!  each wed we(home school group) meet at a park for the kids to play.  gotta keep them socialized. and same with us moms. ha.  but i was able to sit and have lunch with my friend and spent 4 hrs catching up.  so nice.   so thankful for a great home school support group!   def my high light of the week. and ellie swung the whole monkey bars by herself!

water pipes

 yesterday we went to visit chris and check out the water pump and the trench chris made for the water pipes
 so. much. work!
 it looks GREAT chris.  you are a BEAST!  a total work beast!
 i brought school work with me to mark.  i sat on the wood pile and marked away...my least fav part of home school but it wasnt so bad doing it at the land
 i took the kids for a walk, i found a new brook.  i love that about this place, im always finding new things
 and a ladder!

joey was deep in thought. all by herself. ha

 she wanted to join the boys and hit the river. i just let her dip her feet in, the water is so cold still, and well, its joey.  she would fall in. ha
 ellie too
 enjoying the view
 i told the boys to be careful of slippy rocks and im ok with them going in the water, BUT if the fall or get wet they cant complain about being cold.  dillon ended up soaked. ha
 i helped chris with the leveling
 it was really enjoyable to do
 see. i did that. ha
i can not believe how fast time is going by and how busy/full our days are...but i rather that then being bored. ha

and with that i must go.  im going out to the land with the girls to help chris...not sure what im doing yet....ha

happy may long weekend! 0 comments
