We unveiled our tie-Dye shirts from camping~ spent an afternoon at the beach, Eldest and I put in a long day at a Feis and then on to square dancing with "the cousins," while the boys and the dog were busy with a baseball game in the morning, the fall flea market down the street, and enjoying parts of our town's 375th birthday celebration (no photos from the boys' time... :( )
Now it's time to get ready for our first day/week of school! :)
Here are a few nuggets to start you off:
By Canoe and Dog Train: The Adventures of Sharing the Gospel with Canadian Indians (Updated Edition. Includes Original Illustrations.) I haven't read this yet, but it looks like an interesting read for an older elementary age.
Timekeepers: A Revolutionary Tale is another that I plan to check out shortly~ a time travel story for the younger set.
And last but not least, a bit of new music
that you can download from HearItFirst.
A new-to-me artist, Becca Bradley and her song The Lions Eyes. This is currently free for download if you submit your email address~
One more~ not a freebie, but a fun resource that you might be able to check out from the library or purchase used ~ I Hear America Singing!: Folksongs for American Families is a nostalgic CD/Book combo for my family~ it was a major part of the soundtrack to our 2006 Great American Road Trip. Eldest was reminded of it when looking up some of the tunes played at the square-dance. :)
Enjoy these nuggets! I'm going to go get some last-minute planning in for our first day of school, 2015/2016.
