Homemade Christmas Guide #1

I have heard it mentioned a few times that christmas is coming awefully fast. We are halfway through September already! We are absolutely going handmade this christmas. I usually have most of my shopping done by this time of year, but somehow it got thrown by the wayside. Oh wait, that could have been due to all the bad stuff that happened this year (injuries, broken down car that needed to be repaced, crushed sewage line, loss of my job) but I digress...Etsy is a great place to find interesting, budget friendly, gifts. I already found the perfect gift for my bro in law, I can't share what it is of course, but I can share some other amazing gift ideas. Our budget this year is $10 per person and so all these ideas are $$10 or less. Simply click on the pic to go to the listing. FYI the popcorn is SOAP! I will post another fun gift guide soon, and please let me know if you cannot get to a link and I will help you find them : )

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.
