Read Reunion

This past weekend, we traveled to Mo Ranch for a family reunion with Ben's family.  I was pregnant with Boo the last time we had been with his grandmother's sister and her family.
R2 is named after his great-grandmother's family, so he was a hit with his distant relatives.  The boys were also a hit b/c most of the cousins on this side of the family are girls.  We also learned strabismus runs strong in the Read family, with seven kids who wears glasses for the eye disorder.
It was an unanimous decision to hold the reunion every year, so we will see cousins more frequently.

Vacation Liberty School

This past week, the girls participated in Vacation Liberty School.  A homeschool friend is one of the leaders and every she invites us.  This was the first year we could make it work.  The girls loved it and cannot wait for next year.
They started off in England as peasants living under King James and had to travel to the New World.  They met George Washington and Ben Franklin.  They also made cards for soldiers in the army.  I regret not making this a priority in past years, but will make sure it doesn't happen again.
