First Day ~ August

I am joining up again this month with Nicole at Journey to Josie on her First Day linky. This First Day was a special one, as it was somebody's birthday.

Tay got the award for telling me 'Happy Birthday' first.

Homemade zucchini bread for breakfast.
My first zucchini from MY garden.

600 printed pages later and we have our unit study curriculum ready to go!

From our the ladies at our church.

Kyndal and I took a trip to the Amish bulk foods store.

My new birthday sneaks from my husband arrived today!

Brynne and I on a ride back from Redbox.

Reading and relaxing at the pool.

And jumping ...

And goggling ...

Ready for dinner at mom and dad's.

Dawson and Taylar.

My precious niece Bell visiting from Oregon. LOVE her!!

Yes, those numbers are in the equation for my age.

Ending the day with tea and Les Miserables.

See what other ladies were doing on their first day of August.


  1. Now that looks like a WONDERFUL birthday.
    Be blessed, friend.

  2. Happy Birthday Hope you have a Wonderful Birthday Weekend!!!! :)

    Love the cloth diaper cover on your niece. That was one of the best parenting choices we made Cloth Diapering.

    Holy Moly 600 pages yikes, hope that was mostly black/white ink.

  3. Happy Happy Birthday! Celebrate all week long!

  4. oh Good Lord, I do not have my 600+ pages printed out much less planned... and we start school when? ha ha.
    Happy Birthday beautiful you,
    may your year be filled with amazing blessings!

  5. Happy Birthday!!
    I love this idea! What a wonderful to remember what is going on in your life and a great day to document your birthday too!!
    I really enjoyed seeing your day in pictures!

  6. What a fun day! This post made my morning!

    So you printed that bad boy out? I wanted to use that next year but just can't decide how I feel about printing that much. Maybe if I close my eyes and pretend I'm not using all that ink I can handle it! Our literature program this year was a doozy to print, so I did half now and will do half later. Which is silly cause it's the same amount of printing whether I do it now or later! I'm such a dork!

  7. Happy Birthday to you! Your zucchini bread looks delicious.

    We are hopefully going to finish Road Trip USA this year. It is a lot of stuff!!! My three inch binder barely fits the teacher pages. It is a lot of fun though :)


We all know that in this crazy world of homeschooling, we need all the (adult) support we can get. Please leave a comment if you so wish!
