Tour de Cure is Coming!

It is biking season and this year we are doing the Tour de Cure! I am so excited to be riding again. We haven't since we had Jayne, nearly 4 years ago.I had gestational diabetes when I was pregnant with him and type 2 diabetes runs in my family, so my chances of getting it later on are high. I have also known many kids over the years that have had type 1 and it is so hard for them. I ride so that we can find a cure for myself, in the future, but also for all those coping with diabetes now.

We are running a special at The Crazy Elephant. 10% of our sales (through May 14th) will be donated to the American Diabetes Association that includes live shows as well as and

Our team will be riding 32 miles in the Tour de Cure on May 21st and your support makes all the difference. You can make a monetary donation to any of our participants at the link below or even join our team. Please pass this information along. The more support we get, the sooner we can find a cure!

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.
