RandR Games called Pig Pile! This game is the winner of two awards Detroit News Top Ten Games, and Toy Tips Recommended. Pig Pile is a fast paced game that reminds me of Uno meets Pass the pigs. It is designed for 3-6 players and for ages 7 and up! The game consists of a colorful deck of cards that contain pictures of pigs, a different pig for each number from 1-12. Game play is fun and continues until all cards are played. The pile of pigs come in as a way to keep score. RandR Games offers a whole line of original family and educational games.
A bit tough to figure out game play.

Buttercup is 43 months and Buddy is 21 months!
Here are some things they have done this month:

We had a beach holiday!

Buddy tried to run into the waves!
Buttercup danced on the beach!
Learning about shapes!
Making Abraham's tent!
Today during our church service in the park Buster told us he wanted to be baptised afterward in the river. I spent a little time talking to him to make sure he understood it and my husband talked to him about it as well. Strangely enough I had decided to grab the cameras today before we left which I never do for church. It was a blessing to see this today!
My husband even got to help with the baptism!
Such an amazing and beautiful event in my firstborns life!
Weeks 6, and 7:
The last two weeks we have continued to do school at a bit of a slower pace because of some summer time activities. Next week we will be going full speed ahead. The weather here has finally turned hot and we have been taking the kids to the park a lot but trying to go when it has started to cool down.
Buddy is getting so grown up and it is really fun to here him talking up a storm. He is such a sweet little boy.
Sweetpea's handwriting is getting better all the time! We use these little whiteboards pretty much every day they come in really handy!
Dog pile on Buster!
We had a hot dog roast with my brother and his kids while they were down for the Summer!
The girls hanging with cousin S at Moggy and Gumpy's!
Birthday Party for Cousin E!
The Birthday boy!
Popsicles on the porch!
Having fun with a geometry book I'm reviewing!
Sweetpea was supposed to learn a new chore as part of her HOD work.
She chose mopping!
We also made a horse as an activity!http://www.weirdunsocializedhomeschoolers.com/

Week 4, and 5!
Last week my husband was on vacation and you can see a few things we did at the beginning of the week Here. Half way through his vacation week we headed to the Northern Oregon coast for a family vacation. By family I mean my entire family, my parents, and all my siblings and their families. It was crazy and a ton of fun. There were 14 children there from age 1-16! Three families stayed in a rental house, my parents stayed at a hotel, and we stayed at a cabin at Fort Stevens state park. We were able to reserve one of their brand new deluxe cabins, and let me tell you they are deluxe! It is almost like cheat camping! While we were there we spent a bunch of time at the beach, hung out at the rental house for meals, went down to the Seaside boardwalk for rides, visited the wreck of the Peter Iredale, went to Astoria, drove across the long bridge to Washington(just for fun), went to Fort Stevens, visited Fort Clatsop, flew a kite, and saw the sunset! We were also able to get a picture of all of my parents grandkids together. Since there was so many pics I put them in a slideshow for you. This week I was somewhat exhausted from our vacation, so we did some school but not as much as usual and I didn't really take any pictures.

I had two wisdom teeth taken out on July 27th so we had a short school week, and last week my husband was on vacation. In light of that I have a ton of pictures and things to post about. I will post a few more later.
The last Saturday in July we went to a really neat veterans memorial that was a field of flags!
After the flags we took the kids to the museum again because they had given us a free family pass at the field trip. The museum just recently added a dig pit!
The day after this our church had a Gold Panning day!
Buster found several crawdads, but no Gold!
Daddy found a few flakes of Gold, and he had a lot of help!
