Starting School 2014!

Yesterday Naomi and Jacob began their year at Hilger Higher Learning.
They are taking Science, Grammar-Writing and Literature there this year.

While the big kids were at Hilger, we schooled at the Creative Discovery Museum--painting, studying water at work, looking at bugs, starting our reading program and playing in the sand.

When we picked the Hilger kiddos up, we stopped for a little first day celebration at Baskin Robbins!

Today we started our formal schooling at home.

Instead of one Ikea table, we now have two, and instead of paper, they are covered with white board material.

There's a big box of treats to help the school days along

and about seven notebooks a piece, if I counted correctly!

Beach Trip 2014

Hello, JAX beach!

Our family loves (big time) the beach! Everyone loves playing in the sand, and when the surf is right, we spend hours out in the gentle waves. 

And who doesn't love the beautiful views? Even storms become beautiful and glamorous!

not the highpoint of our beach trip--after having to be jumped off twice, we decided it was time for a new battery for the van
