i've missed you

It's been a pretty mellow summer so far here by the bay.
Quite cool and foggy.  More so than usual.
I don't think we've seen the sun for a few weeks.
The kids and I returned from Oregon last Saturday.
Where it was cooler and foggier!
We are easing into more of a schedule.
A little math here, a little history there.
We meet with our educational coordinator on Monday.
Can't wait to come home with lots of new curriculum!
Goose is really into the Warriors series right now. 
She can read 3 books a day sometimes.
And now Binky is reading  the first book in the series.
I can't tell you how excited I am about this!
He is reading this all on his own, one chapter a day(his idea.)
I found this link to Warriors reading guides, with great activities to do with Binky.
Goose is studying California.
I can't wait to visit the San Francisco Mission Dolores.
My grandparents used to take my sister and I to Mission San Juan Capistrano every year to watch the swallows return.  Such fond memories.
Daddy is working a lot.
We are grateful for that.
Life is good.
How is your summer going??
I've missed you!


  1. Well, guess what?!
    Noah's reading the Warrior series also! He is loving them. I can't get them from the library fast enough so he's even spent some of his allowance money on them.
    Here's a fun website that we've found:


    I'll be checking out the link you've posted, thanks!

    I've been wondering where you've been!
    Nice to see you're back. Also good to hear that daddy is working a lot, ours is too:)

    Summer is just hot and humid here... not up to much. We've been doing more homeschooling this summer than we usually do. (mostly out of boredom.)
    Waiting for our Sept. vacation:)

  2. Awesome activities, Lisa!
    I can't wait to do them with Noah:)
    Thanks again!

  3. Our summer has been quiet and mellow also. My older daughter loves Warriors! I think she has purchased every book. There is so much facinating history in Cali I'm sure that it will be a fun thing to study. Glad to hear things are going well.

  4. Sounds like a wonderful summer. My oldest has been reading everything he can about California too. :) He gets into the Monterey Bay Aquarium, and every time ends up going through cities, climate, wildlife, history...he wants to live there. :)

  5. Missed you, too! In fact...just last night I was thinking of you and thought, "Uh oh, did I accidentally delete Goose & Binky's mama from my Reader?" I'm glad you were in there this morning!

    Glad you're enjoying your summer!!!

  6. Welcome Back! I think the sun finally came out this week to herald your return!

    Oh how I *loved* studying the missions and visiting them when I was younger, such fun for you to do them now with Goose and Binky!

    hugs, hugs, hugs!
