Some Fun & Favorite Things

I can just imagine how much fun my sons would have with this! There would be one water balloon launched after another!  Fun, fun, fun!!


This would provide hours and hours of fun and imagination!  I could just see my sons getting together with friends to battle the dark enemies of Sauron from Lord of the Rings and using this as their "weapon" of choice. :)  They would set up their hay bales and pretend that they were the enemy.  They might even set up smaller targets on top of the hay bales, like pumpkins or even large rocks.  How much fun to perfect their accuracy!  

The greatest part is that TODAY ONLY this Three-Man Slingshot Water Balloon Launcher is only $9.90! This is a 45% savings over the regular price.  You can click on the picture and it will take you to the page where you can find out more about it.  

When I see things like this, I'm reminded of all the many fun times my sons had playing with their friends.  I'm also reminded of the great times we had when we teamed up with another homeschooling family to do our own little mini-co-op.  It was really a highlight of our homeschooling journey.  One of the things we used was this

We really enjoyed this and so did our children.  It was interesting and held our childrens attention.  It also was great because we were including 3 grade levels and it worked for all of them.  We also liked that they were wholesome and we didn't have to worry that there would be things that would be offensive to our children or us.  Again, you can click on the picture and it will take you to the page to learn more information.

Another thing my children and I loved to do was listen to radio shows.  This is one of our favorites because the story is so amazing and inspiring.  

We would sit in the living room in our favorite chairs or on the couch and listen.  We would sip hot chocolate or hot tea and snuggle under a blanket and listen to the beautiful story of a man who wouldn't give up when he was trying to right a wrong.  Such sweet memories!!

Homeschooling for us was such a wonderful thing.  I've said it so many times that it's the best and greatest thing I ever did and I'm so glad I was obedient to God's calling and did it.  It blessed our family beyond measure!

God bless you - Julie
