September Memories

Other than the "journey" that God has me on this month, we have been having some fun here at the Engel home.

Inspired by the ever so slight change in our weather - (Nothing like NJ by the way)

Don't they look YUM?!
Ok, let me explain the above picture...That would be Shane "Sweatin' To The Oldies" with Richard Simmons. OH my goodness, this boy found these tapes (I'm almost embarrassed to say I own) way way down in the depths of our video collection. Can you say "the 80s!"?

This is the best part of homeschooling. Now they are fully dressed - I require at least shorts in the morning, but there is nothing like doing devotions to start us off!

These are bees, or dragon flies not sure, but they are just like the children in some African countries make for themselves to play with. They are vegetable animals. This was fun.

Below you will see what we do on Fridays. We belong to a Homeschool Co-op and on Fridays this month the children are being taught all about the election process. They have so much fun being with all of their friends and learning about our Presidents, congress and how the election process works....

Below is Brendan and Shane with their good buddy Valor waiting for class to start! As you can see there are a lot of friends in our humble homeschool group. Some of the signs read..."Proud to be a Republican", "Think Elephant", my children's signs read......"Vote Shane"....and "Vote American" - Brendan did tell me later that he meant to write America, but he is so used to writing the "a" and "n" together (because of his name of course) that it was just a mistake. I saw nothing wrong with that....the way our country seems to be going we never know....we may have to make signs that say that at some time.
