I am always thankful for public libraries, since both Matt and I love to read and now our boys are devouring books we would definitely go broke if we had to actually purchase all the books we go through.
Without our public libraries, homeschooling would be much harder. I was able to borrow our history curriculum (for the beginning of the year at least) from neighboring libraries.
It's not just about the books though, both boys participate in a variety of programs at different libraries nearby. These programs include story times, sensory play times, book clubs, science groups, and many more.
And this summer, our favorite local library has baby chicks! We were lucky enough to be there one day last week when the first of them hatched so we got to watch the process and it was amazing.
This past week, Davis was able to attend a free 3 day camp at the Apple Store near us where he learned about videography and how to create his own movies using the iMovie app. He had a lot of fun and learned a lot so hopefully we'll begin adding new youtube videos soon. (Check out the new we already have here)
This week, Davis is attending a Vacation Bible School at a nearby church. He's attended the same one for several years now and it's always really big and a lot of fun. As a bonus, quite a few of our friends bring their kids to the same VBS so he usually has a few friends there, even if they're not in the same group.
I love having the opportunity to work with the kids at our church. There's something so fulfilling about teaching the next generation of believers and we get to do some really fun lessons. I teach a cooking workshop and this past week we were working on the story of Jonah. The way they tied the food into the story was really cool.
