So while Summer heats our lives; we have been doing some stuff. On June 10 we went on a field trip to Austin, TX. How much kids can enjoy the road trips! It took us a little more than 3 hours to get there. We visited the city but the day was so hot that it was pretty hard to walk around. We just wanted to stay in the car.
But our destination was the University of Texas in Austin. There was going to be a presentation called: Dan & Phil’s The Amazing Tour is not on Fire or something like that. You can imagine that it was all intended for young girls; not for old ladies like me.
But kids today enjoy their YouTube heroes. Long were the days when we youngsters in the 80’s just wanted to go to a rock concert with our long haired guitar heroes, LOL!
I have to say that I enjoyed the show; it cracked me up a few times. But the only bad part of the evening was the girls screaming. Oh dear Lord! I spent almost the whole show with my hands covering my ears. It’s amazing how laryngitis never affects young girls when they see their favorite celebrities.
The next day my ears were still ringing from the experience. But we did have fun and it was something our of the ordinary.
A few days after our field trip, Anna went to a Summer Camp at Lakewood Camp Center in Waxahachie, TX. These kind of experiences help homeschoolers socialize with different kids seeking their breakthrough with God. There she witnessed healings in the services; participated in Bible studies & games. She experienced diversity for four days & nights. It was good.
So now we approach July and I’m studying like crazy to take the Special Education TeXes test. Anna continues finishing her Eighth Grade; remembering that she started a little late because of the moving and the withdrawal from the charter school. But she’s doing good.
One of the advantages of homeschooling is that we are not restricted to school calendars. God willing, this weekend of July 4 we will enjoy the Plunge Party with fireworks at church. Sounds like fun! So enjoy with your kids this Independence Day weekend. And may God Bless America and his children!
