If I am going to talk about old people trying to act young I can't leave this out. Hubby is a lot braver than I am. Our nephew has a ripstick and of course Barry has to try this new thing out. He is getting pretty good at this thing and is now requesting one for Christmas. I thought I only had 2 kids. Guess I can't leave the big one out. I imagine I will spend the next few years in the ER with ALL of the boys and all of the stitches and broken limbs to come.
Barry's grandmother was here for a visit along with our niece from North Carolina. Had a little fun one night on the trampoline. His grandmother a 72 yr old woman got up there and jumped. I was a little on the nervous side that we would end up in the ER. Then Andra my mother in law jumped and took a fall. My father in law also took a turn. The big kids and little kids had a blast. Pretty funny watching old people try to be young. Can't talk too much that trampoline wears me out! Guess I am getting old.:o)
This summer we are still doing school work. Brenden doesn't mind though because it is mommy time and at his age everything is fun. We were on the letter e and since that is the hardest letter he has had to write so far I wanted to show him why it is so important for him to learn how. He has 2 in his name. If he wants to write his name he has to learn the letter e. I really like how Abeka uses dots for the starting point of a letter. That is extremely helpful. I am not sure that I would have thought of that one. If you look at his e's you can see his dots.
