In case you haven't noticed, there is an additional child in our family photo. I would like you all to meet the newest member of our family. She is the pretty little 7 year old in the purple dress. "Eloise" now has a little sister. We have decided to call her, "Amelia Bedelia".

Hidden Treasures....

P.S. be sure to check out Eloise's challenge on our homeschool blog:

Eloise is home schooled,
as many of you know.
We love the freedom of schedule,
but sometimes need a change of scenery.

 A couple of days ago,
Eloise & I decided to go for a bike ride.
We would do lessons & lunch.
Our destination was the park.

While on our journey,
we noticed flower and veggie plants
peeping out from behind
a local non-profit building.
It seems that the organization has a team of
gardeners who grow stuff 
to sell at a farmer's market.
The proceeds benefit the organization
It is so good to see
that the land will be put to good use,
since there is so much of it 
Eliose and I plan on going back
to see if we can learn more about 
growing food,
since Gran & Grandpa 
have a few empty lots

We had a great time,
and will definitely do this again...
before it gets too hot!
