Busy, Busy, Busy!!

We have had an incredibly busy few months and the kids have loved it!

Our trip to the bowling alley was super fun. Black-light bowling is the best!

The next field trip is coming up next week and it is a place we have never visited before. It looks like a wonderful place and I think the fall weather will make the day even better!

Also, we have eight students who qualified for the National Beta Club so we now have our own club up and running. The induction ceremony will be coming up soon. I am so excited to see these wonderful kids receive their certificates and pins. 

If you are interested in homeschooling or would like more information about our homeschool group, please email me at kellyvicki2000 at gmail dot com.

:) Happy Homeschooling!!!

I know all our schedules are packed super tight so I appreciate y'all coming to the events and would like to say a special thank you to all our volunteers!

If there is anything your kids are interested in doing just plan a field trip and send the details out on our message board. Even if it is a place we have gone to before as a group, we will be glad to go again!!

Scholastic Store is Open!

Our Scholastic Reading Club storefront is now open for the new school year. We are so excited about this because encouraging reading is one of the most important things we can do to help our kids succeed. It can be tough finding the right books to keep them interested, which is why our group will be participating in the Scholastic Reading Club this school year.

With Scholastic Reading Club:
    You can choose from handpicked, grade- and reading-level-specific books for your child

    You'll find the best values on a variety of formats

    Your books will be delivered to you at our monthly field trip

Each month, you can pick up Reading Club flyers at our field trip or view them any time online. You can choose from books hand-selected by teachers and experts, and then order online or send your order form and payment to me. 

If you are a C.H.I.L.D. member and interested in ordering please let me know. I'm excited to get our kids reading! 

If you would like more information on joining C.H.I.L.D. I will be glad to help you. 

Thank you for your interest and support,

Vicki Kelly

Gearing up for a Great Year!

We have every thing lined out for an awesome year! We have gotten all the monthly activities planned and both 4-H groups will be jam-packed with fun for the kids. Our back-to-school bash will be next month and we are looking forward to a great turn out. The yearbooks, which are on sale now at our store front, will be delivered at the party. (They are awesome!!) Also, we will have membership forms, a list of all our activities for the year, and sign up sheets for events that still need a mom in charge. It will be great to see our friends again and we are excited to meet all the newbies! If you are interested in learning more about C.H.I.L.D. and homeschooling please join us for an afternoon of fun Christian fellowship. We look forward to seeing you there!

Awesome Graduation!

This school year has been extremely busy and full of activities but tonight we tried to slow time and savor the moments that pass all too quickly. This year's graduation was so precious and reminds us, not just how fast time passes, but what our true goal as Christian homeschoolers should be. The graduates all did great on their presentations and touched our hearts with the beauty of their message. Jesus loves us, His word has the answer for every decision in our life, and He alone is great and worthy of our praise.

If our children have these truths in their heart, we are blessed beyond all measure.

Here are a few pictures of the decorations:


We had a wonderful time at the graduation and want to say 
to all the graduates.

(The moms did a wonderful job on putting it all together!! You are awesome!!)

Off to a Great Start

Hi All,
I am super excited about this school year. It has been so busy and I am sure will continue to be so, but we have some great new events we are planning to add this year! Also, we have some wonderful new families who have joined and with all of us working together the load won't seem so heavy.

Our 4-H group is really doing great. So great that we now have two options for where you can attend the monthly meetings. In an effort to keep group members from having to drive so far to attend, we have one meeting at the north end of our group area and another meeting at the south end. We have also added in Cloverbud activities for our 3rd grade and under kids. We still have a few kinks to work out but doing these two things has more than doubled our participation in 4-H. We have some wonderful community service events coming up and the kids seem really excited about it all. In fact, in a few weeks, the kids will be helping with a community health fair by volunteering in a "Germ Tent"! Should be a "germ-tastic"time!

Two new events we have in the works for this year are a Father-Daughter Formal and an Awards Banquet. We are trying to promote two things that I personally feel are very important: the relationship of our children with their parents and celebrating the successes of our kids. After having a personal relationship with Jesus, I think these two things do more to shape our children's future than anything else. I am so excited to see these events come to fruition as we celebrate the wonderful children the Lord has blessed us with!

Through out the year we will also have our regular activities, Lord willing. These include monthly field trips, back-to-school party, Christmas party, valentine party, spelling bee, bike-a-thon, field day, standardized testing, scholastic book orders, yearbook staff, pre-k/kindergarten graduation, high school graduation, and end-of-the-year party.

If any thing about our group sounds interesting to you please feel free to send a message. You can find us at any of the links at the top of the page. :) Lord bless you in your homeschool adventure :)
