St Nicholas Day

St. Nicholas day was simple but fun! We did stockings and spent the day playing new apps and watching movies. it was a much needed break in our house, even if Adam had to work.
Little Guy got 3 hard cover Magic Tree House books (fantastic find at the local thrift store), the Veggie Tales St. Nicholas movie for the kindle, and the Tizzy Seasons app. He was so excited he couldn't even talk. He just kept staring at all the goodies.

Later in the day I stumbled across an app called Go Go Kiddo. It was on sale for $.99 and so I got it, even though the file is huge. I am so happy I did! It is a fantastic app. There are game, jokes, videos, and even a mini piano. I also really liked that it was made by a couple who are also parents. It really got me thinking too. I would love to do a christian based app, because there are so few and most aren't done well. Seeing another couple making an app and of such high quality inspired me to start fleshing out my idea. We'll have to see where it leads, but for now it is certainly burning in the back of my mind!

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.
