Splash Pad Outing

This month's outing was at the splash pad. There were about 10 homeschooling families there. Oh the children had so much fun! It was nice to just let them run and play and be free.
It turned out to be a beautiful day!
It is hard in the summer. I would like to get some stuff done but at the same time I want the kids to be outside being themselves. It is a fine line. I feel like I need to find creative, fun ways for the kids to learn some things. Amelie should be practicing her writing. Ricky should be practicing her reading. I think that is what I am going to work on.
I would like to read more with Reagan. She is at an age where she wants to go go go. But boy you should see how smart this little one is!

Park Time

We have been going out A LOT! Not every day but it is nice to see the kids outside and having fun. We haven't been doing much work lately but who wouldn't rather go outside and enjoy the weather instead?
Here are some pictures I took at the park.

Busy Busy Busy!!

WOW! We have been a very busy family!
I have started a homeschooling outing group. It has grown from just our family to 28 families. It takes very little time to organize yet it is so much fun! The first outing was at Ojibway Park. The second outing was the fire station. This last outing was at a bakery/farm. The families really seemed to enjoy it! I think the farmer was surprised to see 20 families attend.
I am volunteering for the Special Olympics. This means that every Tues night I help. They have made me a coach for Bochi Ball. This is for the lower functioning people (which I wanted) They have made me feel really welcome :)
We have started our photography business taking pictures of children/people with special needs. I have done a few families and really enjoyed it.
We have been doing school here and there. We are not the type of family to do things on a schedule. Amelie and Ricky did a few lessons in Math today which was nice. They are both pretty good at it.
Cohen is really coming along. We actually had his worker tell us that homeschooling is what is best for him. SHE WORKS FOR THE GOVERNMENT!! It was shocking coming from her but very welcome. She helps Cohen with his understanding and language. He is a tad behind.
Reagan is starting to talk. OH BOY! another talker. Now we have 4 little munchkins chatting our ears off.
Callum is a fun little fat baby. He still doesn't do much yet. lol
I will post pictures shortly. I really want to start blogging more. It is a diary of our lives :)
