The water is flowing on the property after several days of rain. The ground is saturated and numerous streams are to be found all around the house. When the sun started to shine through the clouds we all headed out to enjoy it. The girls immediately started for the puddles, streams, and marsh areas. My grandma’s dogs were real diggers, and there are some large holes in the dog kennel. The entire kennel had water 1/2” – 1” deep, and they delighted in running through it. One of the holes is so big that when it’s dry, the girls lay down in it, and are completely hidden. Curiosity pulled them near, and as soon as I gave the okay, Natalie was mid-air diving into it. I ran to get the camera, and here’s what resulted:
We were really excited when a friend invited us to carol at two local retirement homes. Each child made seven different Christmas cards to hand out along with candy canes. The response was wonderful! Many people sang along, and everyone had enormous smiles on their faces as the kids passed out not only the cards, but hugs and their love. All the kids pictured are fellow homeschooled kids. Good job guys!
