S's Report

S had to do a state report for her Co-op class. She chose to do it on the state of Ohio since her daddy is from there.

She did a great job getting everything ready - the research and writing along with the visuals! So proud of her for working hard to get it all done on time!

M's Artwork

M went to her friend E's birthday party at a local art studio. They painted these cute little mermaid pictures. I think M did a fantastic job on hers, don't you?

World of Coke 2012

Ready to go in!

We don't often get a family picture so I was thrilled to get this one. Their were several employees in the foyer who volunteered to take our family picture! How great is that!

M with one of the characters from the movie they showed.

B with the famous Coke Polar Bear.

There was this cool wall of surveillance before entering the vault where the secret formula is held. We had fun playing with the cameras!

In front of the vault where the secret formula is held.

I took a family picture using the mirrored ceiling! So fun!

The highlight of the day had to be the tasting of all the Cokes around the world.

Scot found one that was not to tasty! hhaha

M loving all the US coke combinations.

Awesome Coke Pop Art

Ready for the the 3-D movie

Just chillin'

Part of the Bottling was so cool to watch!

They gave us a bottle of coke to take home. These were actually bottled there at the World of Coke.

I am so glad we got the chance to go...we had such a nice fun,family day!

Harvest Day 2012

This year Harvest Day was a little different for us. Usually we just enjoying walking around and buying things at the booths around the square, but this year, we had a booth!

E needed to earn money for Winter Retreat that the youth group will be going on in December. She, along with some friends of ours who also needed to earn money for the trip, decided to get a booth and sale some of their crafts.

Both families have younger kids who did not want to be left out, so they also made things to sale. Overall, it was a great success and tons of fun! What isn't when you are doing it with friends?  :)

F.L.O.W. 2012

This semester E had the privilege to be a part of this great group of homeschooling friends.

After co-op each Tuesday, they would eat lunch together, have a devotional, then go out around town to minister in various areas.

Throughout the semester, E went to the nursing home to visit with the residents, cleaned stoves at the local Habitat for Humanity, organized food at the local food bank, and did chores at the Humane Society. I am so thankful that she got the opportunity to serve others this semester and she loved doing it!
