Abigail is 11

June 19 was Abigail's 11th birthday. She was SO excited waiting anxiously for the day to come. At each meal she got to open one present. She enjoyed each gift. Since it was family night we played table games and she got to pick the games. She learned how to play pit and also chose yahtzee. For supper went to a chicken place that has a large trampoline. They took turns jumping and we played fuseball. The chicken was delicious too. On the way home we picked up the birthday cake and some ice cream. She had a great day. I am so thankful for my blue eyed "baby girl." She is a joyful daughter who is growing each day to be more like Jesus.

Almost Done

One week and 3 days left. We are all excited for school to come to an end. It is easy to get lazy these last few days but we are wanting to finish strong. It has been a good year for learning and growing. I am so thankful for David's sister Martha who has taught Jacob this year. She has been a BIG help and Jacob has really learned a lot with her individual attention. Tirzah Brown who was with us for a few months taught Abigail. I was able to give more attention to my oldest students. Since we don't have school in the months of Jan and Feb (it's summer in those months and camp season is in full swing), it takes us longer to finish the school year.
