Last night a group of punk kids where sliding down our driveway (the snow stuck for the first time). That wasn't so bad. Then they started to throw snowballs at our house which made Chaucer start barking and woke up Jayne. Adam finally went out to get rid of them. He said the oldest was probably 12 and the youngest was probably 5. He brought his whip out and cracked it which scared the crap out of them and proceeded to tell them the circumstances inside the house. They said they were sorry and Adam said they weren't because they were still here and cracked the whip again. He said a couple of the younger ones were crying as they all ran away. Adam's so protective of us. He's our hero getting rid of those kids. He went out again after they were gone and it turned out they had been pouring water on the end of our driveway to make it easier to slide on. Great for them but we don't want our car to slide down it. We have a very steep driveway. Hopefully they don't come back. Happy thanksgiving everyone.

Stupid kids... But you also have to remember that they don't realize how stupid some of their decisions are... But I'm not excusing them.

I started laughing really hard when I read that Adam brought out the whip!

Homeschool Fun: Knights

It is going to be mostly pics today. We have had a fun start to knight week. Jayne played lego knights with his daddy and people knights too. We made puppets to play with all week long and Jayne has done great on his worksheets so far. There is also a new addition to our school! His name is Croci the crocodileand he is Jayne's new puppet friend for school. We were going to wait for Ziggy the Zebra with his all about reading class in the fall but he is to advanced for the level that Ziggy comes with so we let him choose a friend for himself. Now on to the pictures!

DIY Little Passports

Adam came up with the idea first and I loved it, then stressed about it, then hated it, then it really grew on me... I'm confusing, I know! We have been getting little passports in the mail for a few months now and Little Guy just loves it. We like it too, don't get me wrong, but for the $15 we are paying each month for the 2 year subscription we feel like we could do better. So the idea was this, let's make our own! I loved the idea, because we could do much cooler souvenirs and relate them to people that we know who have been there too. We could also go anywhere and better form them to what we are learning about. The part that stressed me out was that it meant doing a ton of research and writting the letters on top of everything a homeschool mom already does, I did not like that at all. Today I realized that I know a lot of people who have been to other countries. With their help I would have a launching point to write the letters and any kind of idea what kind of souven…

Bean Plant Experiment Finale

What did we learn? Sun and water give the best affect, of course. We also saw that water and sun are not equally important to plants. A plant can still grow and produce beans without water, albeit stunted. No sun and  the bean plant is doomed to death. Plants 1 and 2 both have bean pods growing now.
