Field Trip Friday: Lincoln Marsh

A gorgeous fall afternoon just begs a trip to Sunny Acres Farm and a walk on the walking path at Lincoln Marsh!  What a fun and relaxing morning!  Have you taken a fun field trip this month?  Did you take pictures?  Write a post and link it up to Fantastic Foto Fieldtrips @ The Homeschool Post!

Wordless Wednesday: My Best Guys!

Stormy Lake on Memorial Day, 2011, with my two favorite guys!

(Memorize Mondays was postponed for the week due to the holiday and the fact that I was in the middle of nowhere!!  We’ll return next Monday to post and memorize the next portion of Romans 5!)

A Sunday Afternoon at Cantigny

This is one of our very favorite places in the world to spend a relaxing Sunday afternoon.

Where else can you stroll through formal gardens, tour a turn-of-the-century mansion, climb on a 1941 M5Stuart Tank, take a walk on a prairie, play frisbee or have a picnic in the park, visit an amazing US Army First Division museum, and stop for lunch or a cup of coffee and an ice cream cone?

All for the cost of a $5 parking pass?

Here are some picture from our visit last weekend…

Almost Wordless Wednesday: Three months later….

Remember this?

Same spot.  Just three months later.

Summer arrived in full force yesterday. I wasn’t thrilled with the 90 degree temperatures, but Jimmy and his friend were!

90 degrees + a sprinkler = FUN!
