Welcome to the blog of Lighthouse Christian Homeschool!

This blog serves three purposes:

1. To have a place to 'jot down' the day to day happenings in our homeschool for our support teacher to see, in hopes that some of the things we do will fit nicely into the provincial learning outcomes.

2. To keep my family up to date on what we're 'up to'.

3. To glorify God.

So on that note, come on in!

The "Cabin"

One last post about July before I move on to August, then September, and then being all 'caught up'! For several years now, my Uncle and Aunt have been building a 'cabin' on the lake out in the bush East of 100 Mile House. Many other family members have been going there to enjoy and to help build the cabin, but our own family of 6, just didn't make it there until this summer. On the Canada Day weekend, we drove the beautiful Fraser Canyon and onward to Bower's Lake and the cabin. Now, I have to tell you that this 'cabin' is really a full size house, but it is definitely a Log Cabin, and a beautiful one at that. We had such a fun time there with the extended family. We went fishing, canoeing, quadding, and even fit in a bit of land clearing and wood piling. Here are some photos to give you a taste of what it was like there:

Rainbow Trout - I caught it myself

Here's all the fish we caught

Dagan took the kids out for a boat ride

Quadding time for Caleb and Uncle Dagan

Quadding time for Joshua and Uncle Kevin

Quadding time for Rebecca and Grandpa

Christine got to drive the Quad herself!

We rode the Quads to the top of Windy Mountain. What an amazing view of God's creation!

The 'path' to get there was 'a little' muddy!

We did some yardwork. The kids cleared lots of brush and branches.

Even little Sarah helped

Not a flattering photo, but it is proof that I helped too.

Tim stacked a sturdy woodpile

and I'll end with a photo of Caleb's mosquito bites. 22 on just his head and neck! Joshua was almost as bad. As Christine said "The mosquitos had a feast and the boys' faces were on the menu!"

We are so thankful for the opportunity to be able to go to this little piece of paradise. We had such a great time bonding as a family and enjoying God's creation.
