Starting the Bedroom

Long ago I shared Jayne's safari room we created. Well, that was 5 years ago! He is tuning 5 now and it is time to de-nursery his room. For his birthday gift we are remaking his room to be Star Wars themed. It is still a work in progress at this point since there is no A/C in his room and you are not supposed to paint in 90+ heat. Here are a few of the parts we have finished though.

I found these super cute "baby" Star Wars characters in a yahoo search. I mounted them on solid scrapbook paper and they took he place of the baby animal pics in the frames. The frames will be painted one of the greys from the drawers below.

This super fantastic poster was already in his room. It now gets a spot in his poster frame instead of his giant zebra print. This frame will be painted too.

This is the one project that is completely finished. This set of drawers came from my mom's house and were purple. The are now a cool grey. He has 2 of these and they house most of his toys. A drawer for dinos, a drawer for cars, and so on. It is great for organizing and look nicer than a bunch of open bins. Plus they were free, which is always in our budget.


We still have to paint the walls and ceiling. Adam has also made a light saber sconce! It is super cool and will be mounted on the wall. As long as we are able to finish in time for his party I will be happy.

It's looking super already! I can't wait to see it when you're finished. Are you sad to have to paint over the nursery or excited?Sally x

I am excited, but little guy is little sad to see the animals go. I think he is going to love the end result though : )

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.
