Year one is in the books!

Last week we finished our first year of homeschooling.  (Let the choir sing, "Glory!" and the saints shout, "Amen!")  I'm not sure Julianna "learned" all that I had hoped (meaning, her reading/writing isn't where I would like it to be), but all in all, I think it was a successful first year.

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times...

Here's a quick overview of the highlights of our year:

May - Promotion Day
We finished everything up with a little promotion ceremony and gift.  (I love gift bags full of little things.  That may be the reason why I love Christmas stockings so much or treat bags of any kind.  I have issues.)

This was my promotion gift.
I spent 3 1/2 days in Treasure Island, Florida.  It was my first trip to the state and it will definitely not be my last.
North Carolina
Atlantic Ocean, I love you.  You are beautiful.  I love your powerful waves.  I love your wonderful roaring sounds. I love your salty smells. However, I think I have lost my heart to another.  It's your cousin, Gulf of Mexico.  Now, I know what you are going to say, but let me stop you.  Gulf had me with it's gentle, warm waves and blue/green water. Don't worry, I will still come to visit you.  We can still be the best of friends.   It's not you, it's me.
Sunset - Treasure Island
They missed me at home.  :)

Have a great summer, friends!
