July 2011 Update

We are getting excited about starting school this year!  We are doing unit studies instead of a boxed curriculum and we also moved our school room from the basement to the main level...out of the dungeon and now have a huge window in our school room! 

We are taking a vacaiton to visit family in MI before we start and the kids can't wait, me either! 

Treyton is at juniors camp at Camp Twin Lakes with Camp Sunshine for 6 days!  I miss him but the leaders are posting pictures and he is having a TON of fun!  The GA bulldogs came and played football with the kids, they have a huge pool with waterslide, horseback riding, canoeing, fishing, carnival, crafts, gym, karate, cooking, gold panning, archery, bikes...these are just a few of the things I saw in the pictures!  Its the same camp and leaders that were there for family camp so I know he is in good hands!
