Meetinghouse One Year Anniversary

Our Homeschool group celebrated its one year anniversary last week. I started The Meetinghouse as a way to meet homeschoolers and it's just really been a blessing in our lives. The Mom's join me the first Friday night of each month for "Diva's Night." We've really developed some great friendships and do fun things like learn to make soap, paint ceramics...really wild stuff. But it is a chance to be without our children, connect to other mom's and support one another. Parenting and homeschooling are tough sometimes so I am grateful to have this group. The kids are pretty cool too.
This Saturday we are having a Meetinghouse Family Cookout. I have no idea how many are coming but everyone is bringing food and the weather looks like sun...a much needed treat after three weeks of rain.
Is there anything better than a homemade Devil's Food Cake with Chocolate Frosting?
I think not.

The Meetinghouse kids are phenomenal. Some weeks we have an arts and crafts project, or a field trip or free art time. During the summer, it's very low key, the kids are mostly outside playing and just being kids. We are working on forming a cooperative with lots of other families to supplement the kids education. I'm very excited about this prospect.

Cammy enjoys some Chocolate cake....and some earlier painting from the looks of her hands.

Romy was very shy and didn't want her picture taken, but didn't manage to inhale the chocolate cake like a champ.

Ohhh and sweet Shane didn't want to admit that the cake was just the best. You can't help but smile when eating Chocolate Cake. It's a rule. He even went back for seconds.

Life is good when you share Cake with friends!
Happy Anniversary Meetinghouse Family!
