Meanwhile, life moves on with homeschooling and daily life. Jared felt sick to his stomach again yesterday, but I think he's recovered for the most part today. Grandma picked up Abishai earlier than usual from co op because she had things to do at home, like baking chocolate chip cookies and homemade bread. And Abishai stayed there until we had supper out together at 6 pm. That means Abishai was an "only" grandchild for 9 hours! That's awesome! Those kinds of memories are what makes living here worthwhile. Keturah and Justin came home from co op very tired, and had some downtime alone and in the quiet while Abishai was gone before we headed out again. They love their new friends though. Benaiah said he got his grade up in Bible to a B+ from a B-. Yeah! I wasn't terribly productive today, but we are home all day tomorrow (besides going to vote), so I'm sure we'll have some fun stuff to share on the blog then.
|When we went to pick up Abishai, we saw that he and Grandma had been busy raking leaves today. We love to jump in leaf piles!|
|So many leaves!|
|Abishai wasn't too sure of the whole thing.|
|Run, run, jump!|
|A Johnson tradition: roll up an empty straw one both ends creating an air pocket, and then flick the middle, causing it to pop.|
|Abishai thought it as great to be able to dip his chicken nuggets into the cheese on m potato. He also like the honey mustard. And he spent some time dancing and running around us at the table. But he never ran off, which is good.|
