Co-op classes 2012

We had a great time this semester in our co-op classes. My friend who is on the yearbook was able to sneak in some pics of my kids during some of their classes. I am so glad she shared them with me!

Silly Girls

This is our friend S who also homeschools and lives in our small town. We would sometimes see her at the ball fields since she played in the same league as B. When she wasn't playing soccer, she could be found playing with the girls.

This particular night they were seeing who could blow the biggest bubble with their 5 cent gum :)

The Frog Story

Yesterday, as we were loading up to go to co-op, somehow a frog got in the car. I have a child who is TERRIFIED of frogs, so you can only imagine the mass hysteria that went along with that. There was some refusal by her and another sibling to get in the car with a loose frog. After 10 minutes of looking for the frog and not being able to find it, I finally declared that they would just have to deal with it and ride with a frog or stay home from co-op by themselves. They reluctantly got in. 

Fast forward to today...we get in the car and look what we find on our dashboard...a crispy fried frog!

M's Experiment

M made a lava jar today in co-op. The teacher sent home extra tablets so she could show her family how it works. She was so happy to demonstrate this for us. 

Love the excited look on her face! 

She is loving Mrs. Kelly's class and we are so thankful for such sweet teachers!

Back to School party

We had a Back to School party at our house with some of our homeschooling friends. Sadly, I took a picture of the cake and that was it! Oh, well, maybe next time I will do better!

We are so thankful to have such great friends with whom we can get together and do play dates and parties with throughout the year!

Immersion 2012

This is a youth activity at church. They had several games they played that  included some of the ingredients shown here.

Things like a slip-n- with eggs, chocolate syrup, and oil just to name a few.

They had a huge relay race filled with crazy things they needed to do with all the ingredients. Things like "flour" ghosts, cracking eggs on someone's head, drinking gross things, etc. They all had an absolute blast getting dirty!!!

E with some of her friends after the games!
