Nearly Missed Blessing

The dear Moms of our Homeschool Co-op have decided that they don't want to stop getting together over the summer even though Co-op has officially wrapped up. They instituted Park Day. I went last week and really do not intend to go every week. The park is a good half hour from our home and I just don't think I should use the gas every week.

However, yesterday morning there was a specific request from one of the families for us to attend and Mikey was willing to give up a day at work in order for us to go. His Thursday was optional. The boss knows that Mikey likes to work and has on occasion offered that he can come in if we don't have something planned for school. Mikey's boss rocks! It is true!

Anyhow, when Mikey was wiling to give up this work opportunity for the Park Day, I thought we should go.

Am I glad we did.

After the time at the Park, I brought home three extra girls and sent my boys off to another friend's house. Check out the fun we had.

We received permission to take our friend Kara along for some Ice Cream.
I asked the girls if I could take their picture and then they volunteered to do a silly pose.

We had a lovely dinner of leftovers, remade in to a fabulously named casserole and seasoned potatoes. I heated some ham in case there could be one who might be offended by the fancy re-do. There was lively conversation and much giggling.
Love these young ones!!!

I am so glad we went to Park Day yesterday!

I am sorry we did not go, I know my girls will be so unhappy to see what they missed out on.

I did get my mailbox post painted and my arch in the front walkway painted as well....It will be off little consolation to them.
