Schools OUT !!!!

I am really weary, I am so thankful summer is here!
The last four months have been the most difficult of my life. I look forward to a new "season".

The Kids with their E.S.and their certificates of achievement.
We headed to the park Friday for Flag football fun!
Last day of Flag football with some Homeschool friends.
Jimmy getting a touchdown!

{In loving MEMORY of our beloved uncle Terry}
Terry fought in Operation Desert Storm and Operation Iraqi Freedom. Sadly upon returning home he developed a serious cases of Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome. He became mentally incapacitated and took his own life. Terry you are forever a HERO in our family. 
Thank you for fighting for our freedom.
The cost of freedom is never free.

Doing a happy dance for you, Tesha! You made to Summer! In fact, I think I'll do one for me too. :) Thank you, Uncle Terry, for your fight for freedom!!

Your pictures, as always are beautiful. I wish there was a group here, like yours for Payton to do things with. He has been home-schooled since January. I know how hard PTSD is, I have a very close friend that I call my brother who served several tours in Iraq who has it. I'm sorry for your loss Tesha. I am very grateful for your uncle's service to our country.

Have a beautiful summer:)
So sorry about Uncle Terry. ((HUGS)) Our son in law fought in Operation Iraqi Freedom. What these men go through and what they see can break them. Our SIL has a lot of anger. Remembering Uncle Terry today with honor.

Congratulations to you on getting through these past four months of schooling, even though I know you would have preferred hiding under the covers in bed. I hope that this summer break will be refreshing for you all. Thanks for sharing about your Uncle Terry too. A touching tribute to him and his fellow soldiers xo

So happy for you that you are done with school... Tesha, that is so sad about uncle terry... My heart hurts for you all... Praying for you friend!

Kim said...

I have been thinking about you and how difficult these last few months must have been to home school. I hope these next few months bring new cherished memories and new sense of peace. Thinking of you.

Christine said...

I'm so thankful you'll have less stress right now. Happy summer to you and the children. We school until the second week of August and then start up again in October, but they will get Tues. and Thurs. off this summer.

I feel terrible about your uncle. I am so sorry about all the pain he and his family went through. Did he have a wife and kids? I will pray for them.

I am so sorry about your uncle. What a sad price to pay for our freedom, he is a hero and truly gave his all.

Loved the pic of you and your family! I remember when I was homeschooling it seems like I was more eager for the year to be over than the kids, lol!

Caroline said...

Have a great summer !!

Summer is in full swing over here as well!! It's tough though to find a few minutes to myself, even to catch up on emails. The kids want to stay busy!!! But I love having them home, so balance I must find.
So sorry for your Uncle Terry, he is a HERO, they all are that risk their lives so that we can live in a free country!!

So sorry to read about your uncle....
