Then they got to have a "snowball" fight and make their own "snowman" treat. Talk about a "cool" event!!!
14: Fun Day Activities... Chevy's, Petroglyphs, PetCo & Waste Management | Having fun is one of the perks for homeschoolers. Whether making tortillas, learning about birds at PetCo, discovering how to dispose of waste or designing pottery creations with mom...it's all about "seizing the day"!

34: Special Thanks! | Dear Homeschool Families! First, I have to say what a privilege and blessing it has been to serve you this 2010-11 school year. Since May, 2010, our support group has tripled in size, as well as our Leadership Team. This year’s many great activities and trips that were offered would not have been possible if it were not for these ladies. Thank you to Mindy, Barb, Jen, Sharon, Kristine, Kelly, Brenda, Carrie, Kelly, Jodi and Melanie. All of you have been such a blessing to me personally and also in your leadership roles. Second, I need to say a HUGE thank you to the Pastors, Elders and Leadership of Bridgeway Church for their generous and continuous support. They have provided the means for our group to become a flourishing community. I am continually overwhelmed by their bigheartedness. Third, thank you to all the families who have invested in our support group and to the parents who have helped with various events and activities throughout the year. This group is for you! Fourth, a super duper thank you to Jodi, Kelly S. and Mindy for helping out with this memory book! I know how many late nights this book took. Great job ladies you rock! Lastly, but always first, I give you the praise Lord! Thank you for the opportunity and freedom to train our children in Your ways while having fun and being in fellowship with others. Joyfully His, Susan Richey
