Sarah is 6!

For Sarah's 6th birthday, she started with breakfast in bed.  Then Howard and I took her to see Brave in 3D.  After the movie we packed up the family for a picnic at Micke Grove and went on the rides there for a few hours.  In the evening, she played with her new toys and got to stay up an extra hour.  

Ice cream cookie sandwiches instead of cake

Making a wish

 She didn't want a cake, especially with it being hot, so instead Howard made cookie sandwiches with chocolate chip cookies and mint chip ice cream  Sarah loved it, even though she couldn't eat it all.

The next week she had a friends party with some kids from church and her Nelson cousins, and Grandma and Grandpa.  They played with light sabers on the trampoline, had a pool noodle javelin toss, threw water balloons, played headbands, and a memory tray game, and of course, a pinata filled with candy.  Since candy is Sarah's life, she had a Kit Kat cake with M&M's on top.  It was so sweet a few bites were enough!

I am pretty sure she had an awesome 6th birthday, since she told us so multiple times.

I'm a homeschooling mom too and love peeking in at blogs like yours to see how others moms are going about homeschooling. Thank you for creating such a wonderful blog!

My husband and I just launched a website that provides new resources for Christian Homeschool families. We're wondering if you would like to try it out for free in exchange for an honest review on your blog.

I won't mention the name of the site here but you can contact me at and I'll be happy to share more information with you about it.
