School*snort* Couldn't tell we were homeschoolers this week...
BooksPlenty of those!

Honor: Dragons, Dangerous Creatures
Grace: Fairyopolis, Mary Poppins, miscellaneous Magic Treehouse/Hannah Montana chapter books (she reads them aloud to Faith)
Faith: Biscuit Treasury
Honor: anything they leave laying out
Me: Five Love Languages of Children, Preparing Your Son for Every Man's Battle, Preparing Your Daughter for Every Woman's Battle
Read alouds: still working on the fairy stories volume and the Riley Child Rhymes volume, few Treasure Island chapters, finished The Boy in the Alamo (Honor gives it too hearty thumbs up), If You Traveled West in a Covered Wagon (Meh..), started Stout Hearted Seven
ScoutsAHG is going well. Joy has some big decisions to make as senior patrol leader, but it's good for her. Cub Scouts is backing down to once a month until August or September. Too many of our leaders aren't able to keep up the usual schedule this summer. Boy Scouts seems to be on the upswing of the leader changes. We had a small attendance for this weekend's camp-out, but it went well. The two newer boys worked on their Totin Chips and Fire'm Chit. They hiked, the fished, they played, they ate.
DanceSlow schedule right now. One show this week. Next one is in two weeks. The heavy schedule starts in early July.

"You guys should take this show to VEGAS!"

resist playing in it anyway.
|That's the sign of a good camp-out. =)|
