Weekly Wrap-Up--Ramblings

weekly wrap-up
I haven’t participated in a couple of weeks, so I’m going to do a general Summer update.  In case I haven’t announced it yet, I am a new member of the TOS Review Crew.  I have already received my first products to review and we are excited to get started.P1050075
We’ve had some big and stressful changes in our house; first and foremost, Hunter Storm has received his driving permit.  I’m not exactly sure how that happened, that he grew up I mean, but it did.  It makes me kind of sad in a proud mama sort of way, he’s growing up whether I’m ready or not.  I’m not, ready that is, I’m really not.  The other decision we’ve made is to move, probably by Sept or Oct, this will mean giving up the babies.  Not the kids, the dogs, I don’t know of any townhome or apartment that will take 2 one hundred pound dogs.  So we’re contacting the Great Pyrenees rescue to try to find a safe haven for them, hopefully they’ll be able to help us!  Anywho, we hope to be moving out of this neighborhood and into a better one, surprisingly, the kids are really ex cited about the idea.  I thought they might be upset about moving, turns out, not so much.  They don’t feel like they can play outside and have fun in their own neighborhood, mainly because they get picked on because of their color.  Sad.P1050069
We’ve had a great summer so far, spent time at the pool, zoo, movies and playground.  The movie theatres in our area have a summer movie program, so we’re able to see a movie each week for next to nothing, great to get out of the heat for a while.  Well, that’s about it, I’m going to include some random pictures from this week to make this post more fun.  Head on over to Weird, Unsocialized Homeschoolers to see how others spent their week.P1050098

Looks like a lovely summer so far! I'd love to have more pictures of my boy in the water, but he hasn't been hugely interested in that, oddly enough.

I remember moving when my then 3-1/2 year-old (now 10-year-old) was afraid to play outside...here's hoping you find the perfect new home for your family.
