Things that begin with a "B"

the beach...
brisk swim... big waves... best friends... boats... bikini, bucket and braids... best vacation EVER! We are back home and hitting the books for our 4th year of learning at home. I look forward to gathering the children at the table for penmanship, math, Latin, history and afternoons curled up with a quilt on the couch while we lose ourselves in the stories we have selected to read aloud.

Lovely, lovely pictures ! The kids look sooo happy and healthy!

I know, I know, dearest friend : you're awaiting my email - it's just that I've got soooo much to do, these days (my in-laws are not well), Laura is back to the university (hence many things to prepare with her).... but this coming weekend promises a little quietness and back to normal. Then I'll "jump" to my keyboard again, and will email you a loooong letter, with the latest news :>) It's a deal !

Love, friendship and BIG BEAR (((HUGS)))

I think vacations that include time at the beach the best kind of vacations! Glad you had a great one!

I love that picture of your son reading. What's the book title?

I'm so glad you enjoyed yourselves! We didn't have very nice weather part of the time, I was hoping you didn't get too many rainy days. Looks like they had fun at South Haven!

I check your blog regularly. Love your pics. Beautiful kids.
My children are grown now and after I look at your blog I wish I could turn back time for 1 day and have them at that age again.
Thanks for always making me smile.
