I'm still making an effort to keep up with the July Blogging Challenge hosted by Lynn at This Day Has Great Potential and Jennifer at A Glimpse of Our Life, and today's prompt is The Best. What is the best thing that has happened this year or the most fun we've had all summer? Despite not having had a family vacation yet this year, our summer has been eventful. The kids have had opportunity to do some wonderful things, mostly without mom and dad!
Kennady went on a choir trip to New York, where she had some great experiences like seeing a Broadway show and going to the top of the Empire State Building. Oh, and she sang with her choir at Carnegie Hall! That's a pretty big deal! (See my complete post about her trip on Middle School Monday, and also my post about the day trip hubby and I took to NYC to see the concert.)

Landon finally was able to attend a 10-day Civil Air Patrol encampment, and he claims he had a very good time, despite the unfortunate weather that prevented his squadron from doing some of the outdoor activities he had most looked forward to - the military obstacle course, the rappelling tower, and the gun simulator.
Both kids went to Creationfest with the group from church this year - it was Kennady's first time - and loved it, rain and all! They were both invited to spend a few days at the shore with friends, and Landon went back for a few more days as well. He's also planning to go to camp in a couple weeks.
Earlier in the summer, Landon took the classroom portion of his required Drivers Ed, and since we were able to do that class with a group of homeschool kids, it had the added advantage of being a fun social experience.
(And by the way, now he gets to do his practice driving in a brand new car. Getting my new RAV4 was one of the highlights of MY summer, although it's a tad annoying that my sons seem to be driving it more than I am!)
One of the days Landon was at Drivers Ed, Kennady and I went with another group of homeschool friends on a field trip to the Baltimore Museum of Art, which was a great way to cap off the official school year for her. (Find out more about this great museum and our trip in my post: Baltimore Museum of Art)
