And we're back!!! Actually we got back on Saturday. For vacation this year, we went to the Akron Home School Convention. Dad, Josh, and Mom all worked there for Bob Jones. And Autumn subbed in when Mom got too tired since you're up all day long. All those 18 and down got a children's badge with a cool little "Exhibitor" sign on it so we could walk around by ourselves and go to pretty much into any session and not get kicked out.
After the convention, which lasted from Friday to Saturday, we headed up to Michigan to our uncle's house. Which would be my mom's brother Scott. We went to their church on Sunday and left after to go to the cabin.
The Cabin (technically called Shady Green Pastures, but The Cabin to us) is nice vacation spot for large families or small families or who ever. Its free to Pastors and their families. It has one large cabin with two bedrooms upstairs and another one downstairs with a large living room, two bathrooms, and a kitchen. Over the years, we've been able to squish six kids, seven, eight, even nine kids into these three bedrooms and sometimes the living room. But now that we've gotten older and can't put two kids in a twin bed or a couple in pack-n-plays(or how ever you spell that) And we even have one more on the way, there's just no way that will work.
Soooo, (I do realize this has been a lot of words and no pictures, but I don't have any of those at the moment and I promise to put some soon..ish.) So anyway they have these little cabins on the other side of the lake and we got the biggest one to put all five of the girls, minus Charity, into. We spent a week at the Cabin, swimming everyday rain or shine. And we got back on Saturday.
If we don't say anything for the next couple weeks its because of the busy things we are doing. We have the Fourth of July on friday, our teens from church are doing a car wash on saturday to raise money for camp, the next week we have the Fireman's Festival. And two days later we leave for camp during which is my birthday! Anyway that's all for right now until I get some pictures gathered from other peoples phones.
First of all, let me say that I planned on writing numerous times during the past three or so months. In fact, I started writing, but never got around to actually posting it. Autumn offered to write, but its been like two months and she still hasn't said anything. Soooo, here I am. This won't be too long because Autumn wants me to do something and I have like three Biology quizzes and an Algebra test to study for. So enjoy;) (Also the internet isn't working so there may or may not be a lot.:))
So mom is officially 25 weeks (I think). And for those who don't already know, the baby is a.....................well, let's just say that the girls waaay outnumber the boys:)
As for birthdays, I think we've had at least three in our absence. Melody turned 16, Stephen turned 11, and Joshua turned 19 (sadly, I only have a Stephen pic because 1. I don't have the others pictures, and 2. If I did I'd have to take the time to look through all 10,000 of them and choose which one to put in and that would take a long time and 3. our internet is very slow) (I just now realized that saying the internet is slow is kinda like my go-to-excuse;))
Bubbles because our parents weren't home so we made homemade bubbles and used our hands. Cause we're awesome like that ;) Just kidding.:)))
Finally, or semi-finally, balloons. On Saturday we went to a balloon festival thing. It was really cool and we got to watch tons of balloons going up.
We also had the Fine Arts/Graduation which was tons of fun and we spent most of the past year preparing for. But that's for another day because I have to go study for like three Biology quizzes and a Algebra test:)
