Being Thankful

Thanksgiving day is upon us and the time certainly has gone quickly. On this day for being thankful I thought I would share the things that I am thankful for. I am thankful to have a very sweet new dog who came into our life when our empty family dog position was feeling particularily empty. I am thankful for my very bright little boy who helps me appreciate all the little things in life and has become very sweet and compassionate. I am thankful for my warm house and all the good food that we always have to eat. I am thankful for our year with out spending without which we could not have cut so much time off of our "big plan". And last but not least, I am so grateful to have such a wonderful husband, someone I can confide in and share all my deepest darkest secrets with, someone that understands me like no one else can, some one that I can stay up giggling with till past 2am even though we are tired and have a busy thankgiving in the morning. I love my family and my life so much even though there are bumps in the road sometimes, I would never wish it any other way. On this thanksgiving day I wish everyone a long list of things to be grateful for and safe travel for what will hopefully be a happy day for all.

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.

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.
