January Snippets

 Here's a peek at what we did in January -----

School.... Lots and lots of school
Isn't Ray's cursive great?

You may have heard about a little football game...
the one in which THE OSU won THE National Championship!
Woo hoo!
Meanwhile, in Gahanna, Jon drilled holes
in a zillion of these poisonous nuts
 so we could make Buckeye necklaces while learning about Ohio at our co-op.

We enjoyed touring the Ohio Statehouse (along with Adam's best buddy).

Potter Mania here!
We decided it was time to introduce the boys to the Harry Potter books.
They're in love.
We read the first book aloud and watched the movie.
On to book two next week.

This is book club!
We read Sr. Philomena's mysteries...
she's a (fictional) secret agent to the pope.
So then we made a "laser" maze and had a blast making our way though it.

Wiener mobile!
In a random parking lot on an otherwise boring day

Columbus hosted the All Star Game.
We went to a Hockey Fan Fair.

More school..... learning to type.

With friends!

Ice skating... a new fun activity!


A full house for a Mid-Year Mini-Retreat for Catholic Homeschool Moms

New Year Adventure with Pappy

Check out what happened when Pappy and Mary showed up at Chritmas with no gifts....


It's true.... they showed up with NO gifts (not that that should matter!).
But they had a "big reveal" that resulted in much rejoicing!
Instead of presents, they treated us all to a fun family getaway at Great Wolf Lodge!
We spent the first weekend of the new year having lots of fun together.

These four really love each other
and it's such a privilege to watch them grow up together.

When they weren't at the water park,
the boys were busy playing Magic Quest.
This is our new wizard-obsessed guy.

Thank you Pappy and Mary!
We had a total blast!
