Most Friday's we go to Crown Park in Camas to meet up with other homeschooling families in the area. This is a great time for the kids to play with other kids, the moms to have a chance to visit and sometimes some learning goes on. This particular Friday we set up some water games and the kids had a lot of fun with the challenges. Maddie and Izzie took on the roll of cheerleader because they weren't interested in getting wet that day.
At one point I couldn't find Maddie. I went around looking for her and found her leaning on this tree reading Franny K. Stein. As soon as first grade ended, both Maddie and Izzie discovered a love of chapter books and they spent most of the summer reading non-stop!
