Ocean City Vacation

We took a mini vacation with our dear friends to Ocean City.  It was a great weekend together!  We visited Assateague Island where we waded in the VERY cold water and saw wild horses.

We spent a nice day on the beach.

We fed our children to Jaws...

Then we finished out the weekend at Fish Tales Restaurant...

We had a great time!

Homeschooling "For Real"

This year marks the first year of "official homeschooling" for our family.  We have homeschooled Luke "unofficially" for preschool for the past two years.  We decided to take the plunge this fall and do the "real thing."  So far, things are going better than I could have hoped.  What an answer to prayer!

Eli is following in big brother's footsteps and beginning preschool this year too.
