It's Coming Along

We have really done a lot to the house since we first bought it. I thought I would share some of the pics of what we have done. The kitchen was by far our biggest project this year and I think it really turned out great : )

1. This is the kitchen on the day we moved in.

2. This is the kitchen after we refinished the cabinets and painted. We also put up a new light fixture and under cabinet lighting.

3. The big gray section is our movie screen and we painted and put up curtains in the living room.

4. We painted the downstairs and turned it into a play room. We aren't done yet. We are going to do the same effect on the paneling as we did in the hallway.

5. We painted the bathroom, put in a new floor, and replaced the mismatched toilet. I also put up wallpaper frogs.
6. You can sort of see the new front door we put in. The old one was a dark wood door. We painted and on the stripes of the paneling we did the same color (though it looks differant in the pic). Every other stripe is satin paint and the others are semi-gloss. It really gives a nice and subtle effect.

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.
