ella hand sewing little purses to clip onto her shirt, she is so creative and self motivated.
taking a break from packing to do a find the hidden picture book with john and ella.
john was very good at finding the hidden pictures, they were really hard to find!
when we got home, everyone dove into their books without any urging from me.
it was john's first year, they added a preschool this summer and he really enjoyed it.
the older kids get to pick three classes a day to attend, they added some great ones this summer.
and all of the artwork is displayed around the room.
they put on a play, i was very impressed with his voice projection.
he has met some nice kids who seem to choose the same classes he does each year.
he can go into a new situation without hesitation,
and come out with a new friend every time.
i am so happy for him that he has this confidence, it will help him so much in life.
traveling artists class: dragon drawings (china), weaving, totem poles.
one of the projects they worked on was looming, she is still working the beanie...
christopher finished the last week of basketball camp while the others were at art camp.
he helped me take a carload each morning to the new house and unload it all.
they pass out report cards on the last day of the basketball camp.
here are the ones from last year:
i will post the ones from this summer in my next post (i haven't taken pictures of them yet).
the coaches have really gotten to know the boys over the years, i am so happy about this.
they are such a good influence, to have such great role models is so important for kids.
one of the coaches goes to daily mass, he told the boys he prays for our family daily.
we are blessed to have them in our lives,
guiding (not only with basketball but life choices too) our boys as they mature.
