It is mid-August and time for a Summer Wrap Up? While summer is technically not over tomorrow starts our school year and Zachary's first official day as a kindergartener!
So a quick re-cap of our busy summer:
We started the summer off with a beautiful event... the marriage of Uncle Corey to Aunt Heather:
We spent a great weekend with out of town family and we were sad to see them go:
Learning never stops, in June we went to the Davis Explorit! Science Center for a safari and lab. We hunted for bugs and checked out the jackrabbits in a nature preserve. Checked out compost and explored their variety of hands on activities.

The 4th of July was celebrated at Grandma & Papa's house with Corey & family.

Just like the rest of the year, a lot of our summer was spent at the park.
Our favorite time of day - bedtime stories
And shortly after those stories
We have yet to brave overnight camping with the boys but we had a great time at our "day camp" at Sly Park. It was an authentic camping day with hot dogs cooked on sticks and smores!
Tomorrow we become "official" homeschoolers. Our charter school requires evidence of learning which in many cases will be photographs so I should have lots of material for keeping this blog updated. Check back soon!
