Another Homeschool Year ~ FINISHED!

Pin It Now! Feels like yesterday when I was teaching my first son his ABC's with gigantic, colorful Abeka flashcards. Really, I can see his little, happy face so eager to learn. (Okay, now I am wiping away tears.) That same boy will be starting his last year of middle school at the end of July.

I no longer need cute cards to teach letters. In fact all my kids can read!!  I never thought the day would come when I didn't have to endure patiently listen to BOB Books.

Well, we always try to celebrate the end of another amazing year, so this year we went peach picking at Schnepf Farms. Oh my stars ~ the smell was syrupy sweet. I could have sat there all day sniffing peach awesomeness!

Of course we sampled a few while picking - the workers said we could. :)

We collected 8 lbs. of yumminess. Not cheap, but it's a one time indulgence.

We also picked some lettuce in the U-Pick garden. Most of the other stuff growing didn't look very appealing at that time. We were kind of in a hurry to get out of the heat, too. By 9 a.m. it is HOT in the desert!

And the celebrating didn't stop there . . . Papa John's (our favorite) pizza for lunch. Plus my kids always build blanket forts and all sleep in the same room after their last day of school. They drank "Crazy beer" (Root beer in a bottle), and ate m&ms. Hubby made homemade ice cream and we all played a new card game, Golf.

Our year is coming to a close, as well. My oldest is finishing 1st grade and we look forward to our youngest starting kindergarten in the fall! It will be a new challenge, juggling 2 lessons, but I'm up for the challenge!
