Here are some more quick snapshots of life with the Cleve Crew.
We’ll start with some pics of the boys opening unexpected packages of items for camping and their bags. They were very excited!
The boys wanted to do some sparring with Mike (and each other) the other night. I only managed to snap a few pictures as I was too busy laughing. I’ve never seen Mike be bested so badly in any sport he’s played. It was so much fun! He was a good sport. Micah kept yelling at him, “The best defense is a good offense. Show me your face. Throw some punches.”
We were able to do some schooling on the road (over at the reservoir) last week because our piano was being tuned. No one wanted to stick around to listen to that. It was lots of fun being outside for the morning of studies.
- Ethan played in church again recently (you can always watch on our church’s YouTube channel, if ever you’re interested). Micah and I hung out in the church library during his practice. 2. We often have two neighborhood friends over at our house for football or scooter-riding. It’s lots of fun watching from the windows. =) 3. We still enjoy playing games when we’re all home. We got in a game of Splendor one night and Parcheesi another night. 4. And we spend a lot of time looking at books together, too. 5. Our crew did our family presentation at CC last Monday – we chose to tell our favorites of various categories (i.e. favorite bird, game, sport, book, hobby). And 6. The boys began piano lessons again and, therefore, I snuck away on one of my favorite quick walks in Denver.
And, finally, here are some shots from homeschool life. 1. Ethan waiting to do Latin with me. 2. Discussions at Dawn. 3 and 4. Ethan working on a presentation about Copernicus for class with his brother acting as Copernicus. 5. Study Hall with Ethan’s class – we watched The Phantom Tollbooth together since we had read and discussed it together for the past couple of weeks.
