With October more than half gone, we have fallen into a pretty good routine with our studies. Here is a peek at what is going on in our house.
Physical Science ~ playing with peroxide, yeast and fire!
Computerized math curriculum ~ it teaches, grades and keeps records; so great!
Reading history, in costume ~ Naomi dug up this costume from the garage, made for one of her big sisters 20+ years ago!
Naomi's zoology collages
Hard at work!
The "stash" under the desk!
Touche speech and debate team. Lucas is front row far left (in the red sneakers)

Today my parents celebrate 59 years of marriage. That is an admirable milestone in and of itself, but what is more admirable to me is the way in which they have lived out those 59 years. Their life's journey took them from the farm to major cities all across Canada. Their retirement years brought a total loss of vision for my mom and now in their senior years they face the multitude of health challenges that come with age. The journey of life often takes us to unexpected places, but Mom and Dad have always embraced their life with contentment and graciousness. Wherever they went they made friends, found a church and got to know their neighbors. They have always practiced kindness, generosity and hospitality. I am so blessed to have them as my parents. So today I say ~ Happy Anniversary Mom & Dad!

We cooked and baked and cleaned. We shopped and visited. We sat in doctors' offices and we learned how to give injections! We played games and did crossword puzzles. We read about our family history and learned more about the computer.
Mostly we built memories and were blessed to spend time together!
