I am happily married to an amazing military man who spent 9 years enlisted and is now an Officer in the US Army. We have two amazing boys who are not so little any more! They still infuse every moment of every day with creativity and energy, and make my life an adventure.  I was educated at home, and am now teaching our children - second generation homeschoolers! I try every day to become more like Jesus Christ, and to love like HE does. If you want you can try and catch me at bethylovesandy@yahoo.com

The Message translation puts it this way "God gives out Wisdom free, is plainspoken in Knowledge and Understanding."

A ticket to Outer Space

 When I "moved" up here a few weeks ago, my wonderful friend Carrie declared that we should start a co-op, similar to the one I had in S. GA, since I loved it so much. She gathered up a few of her other friends, opened up her home, and thus, a co-op was born. 
 And that is exactly how I like it. Laid back. Easy going. The absolute opposite of stressed. 
 Last week when we had our first meeting, we let each of the kids pick a favorite subject that they wanted to study. Canaan picked "Star Wars". Since we didn't think that Star Wars could really be justified as an educational experience, we talked him into studying outer space instead. 
 Space won the short straw this week, so that was our theme. 
 Here are a few pictures of our fun filled day! 

A very focused group of children, staring intently....
(minus the monkey on my back, who was not paying attention at all!)

 This is what they were studying so closely... the coolest book EVER! One Million Things. 
Thanks Ellen for buying it for me - I LOVE it!
A teachable moment...
Aren't these some beautiful, amazing Moms?

Where I live... from the galaxy, down to the street.
That was a good exercise! 

And these last two are just because they are cute...
What can I say?!

I am so glad you all can get together and do this. You moms are making memories for a lifetime and both you and the children will reap the benefits.

Sounds like a really neat morning! Thanks for sharing about it. I just swung over hear from the comment you left at my blog. Thanks so much for stopping by, and for grabbing the button. I hope you come by often for a good dose of encouragement. Anything I can do to support you while your husband cares for our country, I count as a privilege.

Blessings, in Christ,

OK, I'm officially jealous of your new co-op. How cool is that????
