Well, Adam has not been enjoying his job for some time now and I have really wanted him to find another job. He got a part-time job at Fareway when it opened in Stewartville this past week with the hopes that it would result in a full-time position not less than 3 months from now. Last night we came home to a message from his new boss to come see him and he came back with a full-time position, after working only 3 days! He put in his notice at work and I can't wait for him to be done. It has been a long time since I have seen him so happy going to work and I really think he will like working there.

This also means that we will have health insurance again...which means we will be able to start trying for another baby : ) I'm so glad that he will be somewhere with benefits and that actually cares about their employees. He also won't have to commute anymore. I'm just so excited I can hardly contain it.

Well, I'm pretty much worn out from not being able to sleep (from excitement) so I am going to try and take a nap now.

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.
