Jayne is 2 now and sometimes it seems like he is constantly hurting himself. I love his owie fixer, almost as much as he does. We actually save a lot of money on band aids by having it. A kiss or a band aids makes the owie "feel better" even though they really don't ultimately. Now when Jayne gets hurt he always goes straight for the Owie Fixer, unless a band aid is actually needed of course. We keep the cover in the drawer with his plates and bibs and when he gets an owie we take it out and put the ice pack inside. Unlike the rice packs, which are great for their ability to heat, they use reusable ice packs and it is easy and inexpensive to have many packs on hand. All you really need is 1 cover and you can keep replacing packs as they warm up. They also do not use rice which is one of the highest methane producing plants, so they are a green option, especially compared to using actual ice.

We have many designs at The Crazy Elephant already and more designs are on the sewing pile now. I can only accomplish so much at a time after all. This is a must have item for everyone with children, that works with children, or that has the ability to get hurt. You know where I'm going with this, if you are human, you need one ; )

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!
 Adam gets in on the knight play.

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.
