2 Weeks Down: A Year Without Spending

Another week has gone by and all is still well. We have been notified of a free waterbottle and a free buffet at Pizza Ranch from the home show since last week, yay! We have been playing Carcassonne a lot with the bros-in-law this week. Adam figured out a perfect way to make our own pieces and we will be designing our own expansions soon. We may make some other games too and it is a lot of fun to be using more of our creativity instead of perusing the mall. Yesterday we took Jayne (and 2 bros-in-law) to the children's museum. They have free admission every third sunday. Jayne was was scared of the dinosaurs, but they all had lots of fun overall. We had a picknic in the car for lunch and after had a visit to the Comom Zoo (free admin always). We saw the gorillas close up and the lion even roared us. It was was very exciting. We came home for a long nap and had a relaxing evening at home followed by more Carcassonne after Jayne's bedtime. Carcassonne is an amazing game, and we highly recomend it, fyi. We also went to the women's expo on Saturday and there we got info about what will be our first show with The Crazy Elephant. We are very excited to do a show, and will be spending a lot of the next two months making and designing product. We will share more details about the show closer to the may 22nd date : )

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.
