Last night was the End of the Year celebration for our homeschool group!! :) The kids could bring projects they made throughout the year and display them and then they also had a chance to give reports, recite poems or Bible verses, play piano, or other things, during the program.
Dylan P. (sitting) displayed a bunch of boats he made. The one on the right, Danny made and then he and Dylan worked at it together!
The children opened the program by singing the 2 songs they learned and sang over the air at the Faith Radio station in Tallahassee on one field trip this year.
Emily G. introduced her children and Anna recited some memory verses, gave a book report, and played a piece on the piano.
I was out getting Tamara ready for her part, so I missed this, but it cracks me up.....while their Dad helped Baylee, Taylor (on the right) is already getting nervous! ;) She was too shy to recite the poem she memorized. :)
Tamara gave a report on the people of Ancient Egypt and we dressed her as an Egyptian Queen.
A big thanks to Emily and Anna G. for allowing Tamara to borrow Anna's Cleopatra outfit....it worked perfectly!! :)
Daniel took along the hourglass he made out of soda bottles and told about the history of the hourglass. His hourglass runs for 5 minutes and he said he would be done with his speech by the time it was done....he even had time to spare! :)
All the kids did such a great job!! A big thank you to the extended families who showed up to support them and to all the parents who helped with set up, tear down and the food!!
We still have a little bookwork to finish up, but we may just sprinkle it in here and there throughout the summer.
Next week, I go with a group to the Florida Homeschool Convention in Orlando. I am really looking forward to the workshops and browsing the curriculum. I always come back refreshed for another year!! And the blessing of spending a few days with my "Mom" friends, can't be beat!! :)
