They are not the greatest pics, but I think you get the idea.

Starting School 2014 ( Classical Conversations)

 We have started Classical Conversations this year. Caity is in the Challenge B program and Colton and Cheyanne will be doing Foundations with me. I do not know exactly what I am doing, but I have researched a ton and I'm going to give it a try.

Here is our Week 1 Memory Board for Cycle 3:

Here is Caity's Latin Declension board:

Chey relaxing with Curley.

We are also are starting state notebooks since the kids have to learn the states and their capitals.

If you need information on individual states you can go here and there are links to all 50 states to get the information guides.

Beach 2014

 We had a great time at the beach. Because of work we can only go for a weekend, but we are grateful for that. I took so many pictures this time because the kids are growing up so fast, and I want to remember each moment. It will not be long before they are off to college.

 Colton loves to read, even at the beach.

 I love this hotel, it is so peaceful.

We had fun at the aquarium.

 Wasted money on a hurricane machine.

 Cheyanne so did not want to sit in this egg. But she did to make her mom happy. She is my baby.

 Love Hammock Beach State Park, it is like being on a private beach.
 Caity found a sand dollar.

  I can not get over how old Cody is getting.
