It Happened...

I'm 30! I had a splendid time celebrating my birthday too. My throat was still sore for my birthday yesterday, but I barely noticed I was having such a good time.
This is what 30 looks like! Mister caught this pic after he threw a self made hat on me and  I was fully clothed...thank goodness for that!

We walked to church without a coat for the first time! The service was lovely and there was a fantastic sermon. We had a great discussion in our Sunday school class on what could have been a very awkward subject (see 1 Peter 3). Then we headed to HuHot with my parents and grandma followed by a little playtime at the park for Mister.

Once we got home, the 3 of us relaxed in bed while Adam read some of The Hobbit. We went on a long walk to Dairy Cream for ice cream, since there was no cake. We decided to skip supper and have a movie and popcorn. We watched Cinderella on our movie screen and my boys got me my favorite tiny popcorn and white cheddar popcorn seasoning.

The weather was perfect yesterday and I am looking forward to what my 30s have to offer. Looking back on my 20s I really don't know what the big hype is all about. I went to college, struggled to stay afloat financially, and had one disappointment after another in the first half of my 20s. In the second half I had rough toddler years and spent all my time and money trying to dig my way out of debt. Not that it was all bad mind you, but I wouldn't want to do my 20s again.

The 30s hold so much promise! Our debt will be gone this year (except the house) and we have many options for our future. Yeah...I think turning 30 is going to be okay after all. And if not, There's always the 40s to look forward to!

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.
