Our weekend started with a pizza party in celebration of "the Vox" (my 2nd oldest) and his completion of Kindergarten. I mean, finishing your first ever year of school is a big deal! It is around here anyway.
We are blessed to be able to homeschool our children and I want them to have the opportunity to show family what they have accomplished and what they have learned.
We started this with our oldest and it was such a hit that we adopted it as a new family tradition. I am sure that when they have all completed their first year that we will continue the pizza party as a way for them all to proudly share their work with some of the nearby family.
It is a special evening. It is a simple evening. It is one that they anticipate with much excitement. The Vox has been looking forward to this for close to two months now! He finished his schooling and then one thing after another came up, but this weekend, the party was on!
I also had a little plastic bin full of some little booklets he made during the school year too.
And in case any of you are wondering about what curriculum we use, we use My Father's World and love it!
I top it with as many veggies as I possibly can and then as it comes right out of the oven hot, I add very thin slices of avocado as my "cheese".
I made two of these for those of us who are strictly eating gluten free and then, the hub's ordered some Papa John's Pizzas for everyone else, because pepperoni pizza (ya know, the real deal) is seriously considered a treat in our house these days.
I love these two drawings!
We have two very cool books by UsBorne Publishing. One teaches you how to draw animals and the other, people. The kids have loved them and learned a lot from them.
And one more fun thing from our weekend, I just have to share a little about was this.....
Check it out here.
Hope you have a happy Monday!
