July 29- August 4, 2016, days 176-180 We Have Finished Our 20th Year of Homeschooling!

July 29- August 4, 2016
As most are going back to school, we are just finishing last year's school work, but that is okay because we can determine our own schedule. This week was full of lots of celebration and good times.
We finally got around to celebrating Alex's 22nd birthday with a trip to Rita's and some time down at the beach. Although the beach is only blocks from our house, we have been so busy, we really haven't had a chance to go down there much, so we stayed until the sun set.
Some of us went to our friend, Pat's annual Bastille Day party, which is nice and relaxing in the beautiful setting of her yard.
We had a couple of really bad thunderstorms and found out that Midas is a bit scared of them. Despite his fear of them, he and Quentin watched them from the chair that sits at a window.

Quentin is keeping very busy with acting camp and fencing and Katie is keeping busy with her summer college class. 
James and Quentin finished up the bits of schoolwork they had started and then we put the books away. Next week begins our two week staycation.


  1. How long will you be on break? I hope you all have a bit of down time.
    Blessings, Dawn

  2. Happy end of school! Enjoy your well-deserved staycation.

  3. Enjoy your break!

  4. Enjoy your break! We caught one thunderstorm in NJ, and it was wild. A was a little scared, because we don't ever have thunderstorms like this here in Northern CA.

  5. I hope Alex enjoyed his 22 birthday party! I've been enjoying seeing the pictures on Instagram.
