Who did you say is in town?

My best friend from highschool came into town.  It was a surprise.  In the end Patti and I got the kids together at the pool for a fun swim.  We had a blast catching up.  I can't believe that in the end we didn't get a picture of the two of us.  The above one is from our 10 year of highschool reunion in 97.

A fun day chatting about our families and the years since we were teenagers!  Love ya girl!

We love the Reading Rainbow App


 I wrote a piece about the app on my homeschool blog called "A Fabulous Reading Find".  Click the title to visit the article and you will see my thoughts on the app.
 I can sum it up by saying that I think it is a great buy.  Grandparents or Aunts and Uncles might consider giving this $50 a year subscription to a family of young ones to inspire reading and lots of fun.  We love that it is al the apple I-pad but also the Kindles. 
The twins do not have their own kindles but can often be found using mom's or other siblings so they can sit down and read a "book, a reading rainbow book!"

Happy 20th Goobers



I know that the pictures are not that great.  I am sorry  Goobers is a 20 year old young woman of faith and beauty.  This gorgeous girl makes her mom and dad beam with pride.  We are so proud of you for all you do and have become.  You are a quiet leader, you are always steady in your faith and friendships.  Thank you for sharing your day with your family.  We had a blast with you and Chuys was yummy.
