What to do on the Friday after Independence Day? We were not lucky enough to have a full day off for Ken… and he had to take time off on top of that to drive Sean to the airport mid day. It was a really weird feeling to say good bye to our houseguest of 18 days… It was like letting go of a part of Canada, our past, our shared history all over again. Weird how it all comes back suddenly! Miss you all back home up north!!
BUT of course that couldn’t stop our Independence Day lapbook completions… we had a family book and then each of the twins had an additional on their own so it was a little time consuming but the end result was lovely! Of course I made a resource blog post HERE.
We had our own fairie dancing around and everything…
And then in the end mommy caved and the gaming commenced… they were sweet enough to let ECHO have a turn!
We also had to take a peek at the garden out back… we are a little slow in the progress due to funky weather but growing wild now!
Now the 6th was a rather important day – AIDAN’S birthday party!! The youngest Novak is officially SEVEN! And what a party was it!
But first, the first Saturday of the month… which means a stop off at Home Depot for the monthly craft – making little cars shaped like something from the Despicable Me 2 movie. Boy was Echo ticked that she was too young to get involved!
Darcy contacted us in the morning asking we come early so Ken could play errand boy which gave him and Anthony some bonding time on the road.
There was a bouncy castle, a pinata, balloons…
What a party. We met a lovely family of 4 soon to be 5 that ALSO homeschool with 3 girls all around Trinity’s age. It was great fun to sit and share stories of escapades and large families.
I think Aidan had a blast and I know our wee ones ran themselves into exhaustion.
Although Ken made it out the door to work on the playset some more the very next day… the whole day really… unstoppable. The kids are over the moon with the progress!
