Week Thirty-Nine

Quick Picture Catch-Up

Last week we traveled out west to Jeffers Petroglyphs, Badlands National Park, and Custer State Park.  We returned just in time for the boys’ baseball game and piano lessons.

This convinced us that we should buy some of his ice cream

Yes, it is light out yet and we’re making s’mores. What can we say, we’re bedtime light-weights.

The grass is really getting long down at our land. We checked on our veggies, only to find the left-overs from a bunny feast! Check out more pics at Our Bluff and Valley page.

More Bluff and Valley pics from this weekend.

And now we’re transitioning into our summer flow, which includes short, mid-day school sessions, field trips with buddies, a Silverwood class on owls with our homeschool group, regular library runs, soccer, and piano lessons (R will begin lessons with our teacher).  We’re still compiling our summer bucket list.  Thanks for checking in and see you soon with summer updates!
