Belize Trip

It has been two months, since Marylynn and I set out for our cousins house with Mom and Christina. We traveled all day and then stayed at their house. Mom and Christina stayed one day and then traveled home. Mare and I stayed three days till we left with them for Belize. :) We had to be at the church at 4 am. :) We had two flights and then we stayed the night in TX. The next morning we flew to Belize City. Once we got there we got on a bus and drove to the camp where we were going to stay. We built a cabin, bunkbeds for the cabin and did a VBS.
Here is a general schedule of what we did every day.
Breakfast was between 7-8:30. VBS was at 9 and we would be back at camp at 12. We had lunch and then work on the cabin or bunkbeds. :) At 7 we would have dinner and then a team meeting. Bed time was whenever. ;) WARNING!!!! There are a ton of photos. ;)
                                                  This is all but two of the girls that went.
                                    Mare and cousin Abby. ;) They cooked most of our meals.
                                                           Where we stayed.
                                                       Us at market at 4:30 in the morning!
They have the Best fruit ever! Oh, do you see the Avocado? It's on the far left. The one cut up is One avocado!! They are huge!

                                                              The start of the cabin.

                   Yep that's me up there. :) We had to paint the top by leaning over the side. ;)

                               We decided to paint the cabin the color of our team shirts.

                                                                 It's done!!!!! :)

                                                Mare and I working on the bunkbeds.

                                                           They have Huge bugs there.

                                                     Mare and I at a Mayan rune.

                                            Mare and cousins Liz in a cave.

                                             Me on a boat in the middle of the ocean. :)
                      We got to go to the beach on the last day and we went snorkeling!!!! I Love it!

                                Our team! It was a wonderful trip. God blessed us so much.

Pheasant Hunting

Dad and Mike went pheasant hunting a couple of weeks ago. Mike was the one that did the hunting, Dad just watched him. :) (It was a youth hunt) Mike shot two. :) This was the first time Mike had gone pheasant hunting.

                                          Dad and Mike with the dog and the two pheasants.

                                  We ate the pheasant that night. It taste better then chicken. :)

                                                        Mike kept the tail feathers.

Hope you all have a wonderful day.

Homeschool Outdoor School

Two weeks ago we traveled to the coast for an outdoor school for Homeschoolers. It was great! :) Tina, Mare and I had an amazing teacher! He knew so much! I learned a Ton. I'm so glad that we got to go. (Beware there are a Ton of Pictures.) ;)
                                                   Getting ready to play group games.
                                                               Tina Just Love's hugs. ;)
                                                 Michael and his stylish sunglasses. ;)
Working on a game. 

I Love the sun rays. :) 

This game was really fun! :) We made it to the cone and back without the ball dropping the first time!

We had a blast with the people in our class. :) Here my friend and I are getting ready to dissect a shark. ;)

                                           Me cutting open the mouth so we could see in it.
Mare dissecting her shark. 

                              Tina and her partner had a pregnant shark. :) It had four babys in it. :)
                                                              Hannah with a skunk. :)
                                                             Susanna the wolf. :)
The first day in our class we hiked walked to the creek and retrieved samples from the creek to glimpse at under a microscope. It was so cool to view all the tiny creatures in the creek. :)     

On the last day we had time to kill, so someone mentioned that we should play duck duck goose. :)

                              It was the best game of duck duck goose I have ever played. :)

We laughed so Hard. :) It was so amusing to watch everyone play. ;) (we were all over 14 years old.)
              One day we hiked up the mountain and measured trees and collected tree samples.
                                               By the way those vest were astounding. :)

             Mom, Susanna, Marylynn, and I all cruised to the beach one afternoon.
                                                     I Love this picture of Susanna!
One of are new friends informed Mare, that if she built a 20x20 sand castle with four towers and a lot of other things, that they would give her 100 dollars. :) Mare and I decided to do one, but not for the money, but the glimpse of our friends face when we showed them the picture. :) It was worth it.  

We all had a fantastic time. We hope to go back next year. :)
