Not much really to blog about this week... other than all of the UK drama things have been slow.
Ben wrote his first essay which was about Sea Snakes. He read an article, took notes on the article, and then wrote the essay from his notes.
Nikki read his first book - the first Bob book. He also met his Kindergarten teacher and he can't wait to start. He keeps asking me every morning, "Do I have homeschool today or am I going to my REAL school?"
On Saturday the boys went to the Soapbox derby at Piedmont Park. They got seats right at the finish line and had a blast watching the crazy contraptions coming down the hill.
Then in the afternoon we had boy scouts. Then this morning we had coffee with a neighbor and hung out... A nice lazy August weekend.
Next week Nikki starts school and Ben can return to a full school schedule. For now Ian is working locally on a proposal so we are soaking up every minute we can with him. The kids have loved having him home for dinner, the dog has loved having someone take him running, and I have loved having an adult conversation in the evenings.
