Where Have I Been?

For a week now I have been struggling with this horrible sore throat. It hasn't been very sore the last few days but the soreness was exchanged for this cough that won't stop. It has not been fun. In the midst of it all we had Easter. We were light on photos, but then I was so exhausted that I could barely keep my eyes open too. Jayne enjoyed hunting down the eggs that the Easter bunny dropped in the house.
That crazy bunny hid them in the silliest places and the one in this photo was the last and hardest for Jayne to find. Thank you Willie Wonka eggs. I got them probably 7 years ago now. They have suction cups, glow in the dark, or hang.
I also got my pot of peppermint from my mom's neighbor. I love peppermint tea and it soothes a sore throat so well. It was good timing since the grocery store was closed and I had used up my tea supply. I am hoping that my cough will go away soon and things can get back to normal. I know that my house would sure appreciate it!

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.
