|More of Steve's fun photography. Fast shutter speeds plus Photoshop.|
|A poem and card Amara made for her dad. She left it on his pillow with some chocolates she bought at the store. She knows it's hard for him some times to teach "zombays."|
|I love the drawings and creativity|
Amara likes to type out her lesson so she has a script to follow.
For a contest to win a free book, I had to take a picture of how we promote reading in our home, so I shared a few pics of our homeschool room.
|Note: Lily did not pose for this picture. She was actually reading in there when I went to take this pic.|
The garden goodness was still being harvested! Amara has always loved gardening and caring for plants. Jax our neighbor is the same way and he's such a good boy and a great helper in the garden!
Here's a couple pictures of the girls with their Uncle Matt before he embarked on another adventure to the Orient.
The supermooon happened in November. Apparently this is the biggest the moon has appeared since 1948. Steve and I went on a photoshoot!
|Steve's final creation of the supermoon.|
Look at our colorful carrots! I peeled carrots for almost an hour straight so I could get them ready to preserve. They're sure pretty.
Thanksgiving came around and Jake's family was in Utah for a reunion on Kelli's side. I'm so grateful they were able to take some time to come hang out with us for a day. We had an all-day get-together at my dad's church building. We had food, board games, basketball, coloring, puzzles, visiting, and even kareoke when Trent's family came.
