No More Pull Ups

Jayne has been potty trained for day time for about 2 years now. Night time still means pull ups. This is something I am tired of remembering and paying for month after month. So after doing some looking around I found a PDF pattern that I wanted to try. The pattern is from Mama Can Do It on Etsy. I ordered the pattern and got it in my e-mail only moments later. Now that is some serious speed! The pattern was very easy to follow and I love the way they look. I ended up making them with 3 layers of terry cloth in the center instead of 2 for extra absorbancy. I did Jayne's with velcro since I don't like working with snaps and it also gives him plenty of size options. I didn't see that the design was not good for overnight pants until I bought it, unfortunate. You can make them good overnighters with a layer of PUL though it is not a fabric type available in our area. We are working on night training and so they are sufficient without the PUL. Jayne really likes them. He thinks he is pretty hot stuff in his newest Lightning McQueen "nigh-night pants". I am happy that we made the choice to go cloth here. They were very easy to make and the 5 that I made him should last till he doesn't need them any more. I do laundry 3 days a week, so I won't need to make more!

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.
