Jake volunteered with 4-H to help with VIP Day at the fair. VIP day is an opportunity to spend time interacting with children who have disabilities; making them and their families feel welcomed at the fair. He said he was very quiet but it was fun walking around with the girl he and his friend… Continue reading Day at the Fair
Today was our first day of a new homeschooling year. Jake is in 8th grade and Emmie is in 3rd grade. I woke up to the radio weather report and heard that the heat index would be 109 degrees today.

Emmie went in the morning and Jake went in the afternoon. That meant… Continue reading VBS Week and a Hit and Run
