July Flys

This month flew by but I guess so do all the other months. I got a little carried away with pictures so hang with me, lots happened this month...
Jamen finished his first year of home school this month! Next year he will be going into first grade, he can't wait to start!

Jonas has become more of a helper these days, wanting to sweep, put things in the trash even if its not trash and he is slowly learning to play along side his older brother and sister.

We took the kids to the zoo, it was the first time for Jonas and I have to say he didn't like it as much as we thought. He mostly just liked the birds. Everything else was too big and scary for him, he freaked out when the lions came rushing out of the cage into the open area.

Here is a happy face.

We all loved watching the hippo eat and the monkey hanging by his tail.

Jon climbed this big tree at the zoo, the kids wanted to tag along.

A nice picture of the three kids...

Enjoying their first cotton candy!

July was also cold. Place outside the city hit 22F for at least three nights in a row. People died of the cold, there was frost and ice. Its still amazes me how it can be so hot in the summer and yet get so cold. We bundled up and drank lots of mate, a hot drink here. 

Jade also started her dance class this month. We were in the right place at the right time and she got a 5 month scholarship at a dance school. It took a little to get use to but now she can't stop smiling while she is there, she loves it!

At the end of July, friendship day is celebrated here and Jade and I attended a tea for the ladies in the church. It was fun to do something together and another great learning time for me.
