Last year I realized we were short on patriotic decor, which is a shame for how deep country service is in our families. Ben's dad is a retired marine corps officer, his brother is in med school with Air Force and we both have grandparents, uncles, and even cousins who have, or do serve. We are a diplomat family and so we also serve our country.

On our Memorial Day weekend camp out we decided some climbing was in order. So the next morning we hiked over to a new climbing spot and got ourselves situated.
It was a lovely day of climbing with friends!
Thank you veterans and acting servicemen for serving our country! Thank you to their families!
After church on Sunday We grabbed our friends the W family to go camping a few hours up north. We set up camp by a nice stream and a lovely view of the mountains. We talked, we ate, kids played and we enjoyed our time out of doors!
This weekend I started to learn how to tune pianos from my friend A. It was so enlightening and fun! C and I were taught together and so we learned our preliminaries on hers and will be practicing on my piano. We both squired pianos in this moving season :). I need practice so I figure now is a great time since I'll be moving anyway and will need to tune my piano again once we move. I am so excited about this new skill!
It is amazing! Some of these kids will go to kindergarten, some one more year of homeschool. Either way, this is the last day of class. The end of the year party will be our last event in about a week.
I can hardly believe our co-op school year is almost over! It was great taking a month per mother, and I got the gift of starting the school year and finishing it! It is amazing to see how these kids have grown and developed! It is neat to see the systems they understand and now expect.
Ezra wanted to be around everyone and just wanted to be included in September, but now he is a contributor! He is learning the systems and I look forward to starting preschool with him in the fall. I hope we find some new friends to do a group with.
On Tuesday we followed the monthly theme of gardening and focused on flowers and the letter f.

The international school had their big fair today and so we took our tuk tuk and our friends and scooted on over! We didn't do the games and enormous slides, but we loved being around all the action on the soft shaded grass. It was a lovely day outside.
