Virtual Christmas Letter


Merry Christmas Everyone! This is year 2 of the virtual Chrismas letter. We are trying to be more green and it is really amazing how much paper goes out as letters.

We had a little bit of a rough year : ( The car broke down (permanantly), we had to get a car, I burned my hand, Jayne and I had an accident at a park (Nicole and Eric will remember that one), our sewage line got crushed, and I lost my job (they closed). On a lighter note, Adam and I got a couples massage for valentines day and decided we really liked it, Jayne got the rest of his teething done, we opened thecrazyelephant.etsy.com (which has been going well, check it out if you haven't already), Jayne turned 2, and while I am not fond of it, I was able to find a new job right away after losing the last one. oh, and I am being considered to illustrate a children's book about alpacas : D

We have some huge plans for the next 2 years. We are working REALLY hard to get rid of some of our bill so that I can stay home with Jayne and do the crazy elephant as my job. It is going to mean a lot of sacrifices on our part, but the reward will be wonderful. We are celebrating 10 years together this year, with 5 years married. We don't know how we are going to celebrate yet. We might sign Jayne up for Early childhood this fall, depending on how things go. And we plan on doing several shows with the Crazy Elephant this year depending on scheduling.

We are looking forward to a fun and exciting, but uneventful, new year.

Merry Christmas.
Love,
The Morgan Family : )

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.
