Fun Mail

The most wonderful mail to get is...

Congratulations! Your loan has been paid in full!

If you do not know how good this feels, it is either because you have no debt to pay, congrats to you, or you have yet to pay it off. It has been a long time since I have posted about our debt payoff plan. This is mostly because we have been plugging away at it and nothing new has happened till now.

It is time to give you all a huge update! When our MN tax return comes in we will have $0 in credit card debt! This has been a huge focus for us for 7 years now and feels incredible. That is not all though. We have paid off several of our student loans as well and the rest will be paid in full in late summer/early fall! That would leave us with only a home loan.

It has been a long, hard road. The rewards are worth all the hard work though. We will no longer be bogged down by debt and we certainly won't be accumulating any again. If you are thinking about getting rid of your own debt or just aren't there yet, feel free to take a peek at my Stretch It posts here: I hope these posts will encourage and inspire you in your own journey to being debt free!

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.
