Mother's Day



Happy Mother's Day everyone. I hope everyone had as nice a day as I did. First of all I was lavished with gifts...I mean it, Adam really went all out. First he got me a guitar for Rock Band and new drumsticks and then he gave me a HP TouchSmart tx2z series! It has got to be the coolest laptop ever made!!! You can touch the screen and everything. He said that it is a half mother's day and half congrats on writing an awesome book gift. I can't wait to start using it for Colorsaurus ABC. Adam also made breakfast and dinner, did the dishes, and a little tidying up. He brought us all to Oxbo park zoo too. Jayne had a blast and a deer licked his fingers. He kept walking up to other kids and showing them his hand. I kept explaining a deer licked his hand but the kids just thought it was weird (these are kids up to about 3, they think most everything is weird). Over all it was a nice day : )

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.
