Sunday Fishing

I got to have an actual relaxing, lazy, nothing much to do kind of Sunday. It was great! Those are few and far between at our house. Meanwhile, Adam and Jayne went fishing with 2 of Jayne's uncles and that is our story for the day.
Jayne is in the middle with his 2 uncles on either side.
Jayne has taken an interest in the Little House in the Big Woods book and was very excited to hear that he was going fishing on lake Pepin, just like Pa! He didn't want to get sand in his shoes though, which is why he is so far back from the water.

They caught 0 fish. Jayne has never actually seen a fish caught in his entire life. Apparently they became hyper intelligent since he was born because we used to catch fish all the time before that. They did get to see this bald eagle catch a fish though.
They even paid a visit to Jayne's Great Grandma that lives near there. She was very happy since she hasn't seen him since he was about 1 1/2...he is 4 1/2 now. Over all they had a great time, even without a fish to show for it. Now they are all planning the next fishing trip and can't wait to go!

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.
