One of our favorite things about homeschooling is the ability to set our own schedule. We use My Father's World for our main curriculum and it is set up for light Fridays. This enables us to take field trips, check out the zoo, work an auction or visit friends.
This particular Friday, we visited our good friends the Mashburns. They recently welcomed a new baby into their family. Somehow, I didn't manage to get a picture of baby Arynn. You'll just have to take my word for it that she is adorable!
The weather was beautiful and the kiddos spent most of the day outside. The highlight of their play was building a "ramp" for riding bikes. The way the kids carried on you would have thought they were jumping the Grand Canyon. :-)
Another highlight was playing on the swing. Mr. Jake attached a swing the a large tree out front.
Madisyn took the time to push Henry and my future daughter-in-law in the swing. We haven't determined which son, she'll marry but her mother and I have plans. ;-) (The Mashburns have 3 girls and 2 boys, so 5 of my future in-laws are covered.)
Don't they look like they're having a blast!?!
Little Libby got to enjoy some time outside with big brother.
Then Ben and Mary Claire had a good time wit Madisyn pushing them.
These two little princesses did not seem to get the point of a play date until the last 30 minutes we were there. They fought over every toy. If each one of them had one, they wanted both. As soon as I said it was time to get ready to leave they became best buds and shared everything! Oh, the mind of a two year old!
We always have a great time with the Mashburns and can't wait to visit again! Princess Liberty declares that a visit very soon is in order!
