July 3-9 Our Homeschool Weekly Report, week 32 Knights

July 3-9, 2015

On the 4th, we enjoyed a lovely cookout dinner and then we went to the fireworks, all with friends.
Quentin is the third (standing) person from the right.

Quentin got the part of Mr. Teal, a distinguished member of the community, in the musical Rats! He only has two lines and two songs, but he is happy with the part, so I am, too.

On Wednesday night we had 12 people at the table for dinner and game night!
We had two game nights this week with friends.
