My Man Hard at Work

Matt tilled our garden yesterday. It was a lot of work because the ground is really hard. He did a good job though.



You can see the boys and me gave him lots of support but not much help.



More to come...........as we get things planted.

Outer Banks Vacation














What a relaxing time!!! No work just play. We had at great time together. Our beach house was nice with a DQ at one end of the street and the beach access at the other end. The wind was quite strong so we didn't get to spend a lot of time on the beach but the boys still had fun burying each other in the sand and collecting shells. We stopped by the lighthouses, rode the Ferry to Ocracoke Island and on the way home visited the Wright Brothers National Memorial. We are already planning our trip for next year.

Below is a video clip of the ocean: you can hear and see the what the wind was like :>)

Blackwater Falls Home School Trip

What a beautiful day at Blackwater Falls.
The temperature was perfect for a great day of hiking.
The group hiked 3 1/2 miles while the moms hung out and talked.









The falls was really full of water.......It was the prettiest we have ever seen.













We always have to get a good photo when we can.
