Sometimes I wish the weekends would last all week through! We just love having my hubby home with us and the freedom it gives us to go and do and be and play as a family. I'm so ready for a vacation, where we'll have him all to ourselves for an entire week. However, this year, I think we're going to hold off, on our family vacation, until early fall. That's one of the beautiful things about homeschooling. Ezekiel won't miss any school; it'll be cool enough that we can camp; and we won't get sucked into all the business and long lines from summer vacationers. I think that it'll be better all around. Now, if I can just survive the summer. Fortunately, for me, my hubby and I are leaving the kiddos with Grandpa and Grandma and sneaking in a long weekend, for our 10th anniversary, soon. I'm sure that will help with my survival. LOL!
So, how about a few pics of our weekend happenings? It all began, on Saturday morning, with a trip to the Old Shawnee Days parade.
Shawnee Town, where he visited an old, one-room schoolhouse; created a family genealogy; made a leather necklace; placed a pretend order, for a toy train, in the general store; learned to use a typewriter and a washboard...
one of these! My hubby accidentally broke mine over Mother's Day weekend, and then, last week, it took a turn for the worst and just completely went kaput. I honestly didn't know my old vacuum sucked (I mean literally.) so poorly, though, until I got to use this baby which has amazing suction! Plus, it didn't cost an arm and a leg; and so far, I'm lovin' the retractable cord feature and that I'll never have to buy another filter again. This one is just wash and reuse. Woohoo! Goodbye, Dirt Devil! Hello, Hoover!
