Summer Fun & My Big Baby Boy Ben

Summer is undeniably here! We are in the hottest month of the year. I gave my homeschoolers a break as I do my summer project. So what do they do now? Here's a peek of what we usually do on summertime.
Book store hopping! No need to buy. Reading is free.

Skating! So cool to be on ice this time of the year!

Field trip. Fun and educational.

 Tea party in the yard. Safe, time and money-saving but fun. That's me, my 3 children and David, our homeschooling friend.

If it's too hot to go out, my girls love to have a tea party in their room.

Or enjoy slumber party! Honestly, I didn't know that they were eating lots of milkshake and ice cream here. How could they sleep with all these sweets?

A trip home would be a big summer treat!!! We did this last year.

Summer camp! Ben (in blue) went to an international camp last year. I'm checking out for one this year.

or the favorite summer fun... swimming! baby boy cooling off.

I used to carry him like this in my arms....

How fast he's grown up!

My baby is now going away to college. I'll be missing him deeply.

His study table will now be empty. I'll be missing not just a baby but also a student. For many years I homeschooled him. Now he's off, ready to go to a big school. I'm confident he'll do good and will be fine.

We're joining Mommy Moments here.
