Tuesday, September 25th, 2012

Our local homeschool group has a weekly park meet-up on Tuesdays. Today we went to Pen Park. Behind the playground is a forested area with a bit of a clearing.

Thursday, September 13th, 2012

Sam and one of her friends attended a Roald Dahl event at the library today to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the publication of The BFG. The girls loved the crafts and the activities but were as perplexed as I was that the first thing they received when they walked into the activity room was… […]
