Once a month we join together with 3 other homeschooling families. We call it our Sharing Group. The kids each share about something they have learned that month, they eat lunch together and then they play for a little while. We love our Sharing Group. Since we started 3 years ago another Sharing Group has formed in North Denton. Many times we will meet together as one really big group to do field trips and other special things. A couple of weeks ago, we met up to do a 2 mile Fun Run.
First was a 1/2 mile run for all of the little kids.
I think Faith may have run 1/4 of a mile....but she had fun doing it!
The big kids could choose to do a 1 or 2 mile run.
Mig did 1 mile in 18 minutes.
He channeled his inner Papaw when crossing the finish line.
Selah also did a mile - but she didn't want to know her time. I love how she gently approaches the finish line and tears it with her hands.
Gabe ran 2 whole miles!! He finished in 24 minutes and 22 seconds and was the third in our group to finish the 2 mile.
Last week our Sharing Group got together and one of the other mom's led a pig heart dissection.
The kids were able to see all 4 chambers and touch the heart valves.
Gabe thought it was AWESOME!
Selah thought it was stinky. (It was!)
Mig thought it was "gross".
Faith just wanted to know when we could eat it. Seriously, she asked many times if we could eat it. In her defense, it did look like something I would pop in the slow cooker. Ha!!
What a blessing to have a group of homeschool families that we can learn with, hang with and just grow along side!!
