A New Home for Tucker

Four years ago tomorrow we brought home the sweetest little dog. His family had too many pets and virtually no time to care for them all. We were so happy to give him a home where he would have the love and attention he needed. Tucker has become a part of our family and we all love him so much.IMG_2188

The last year has brought many changes. We are preparing to leave the country as missionaries. We have left our home, most of our belongings, and are preparing to leave all of our friends and family. The question on our minds all these months has been whether we should bring our beloved family dog with us or find him a new home. IMG_2010

As we think over the life we will likely have in Montreal, we realize we will likely not be home much. Poor Tucker would spend most of his time locked up in his crate. He would be left behind with someone else for the first three months while we are in language school. Then there is all that he would go through each time we cross the border. That wouldn't be so bad for this one trip, but we do intend to return long-term if God leads us to it. As hard as it is we have made the decision to find him a new home.IMG_2161

We love him so much. We want him to have the best life possible even if that means not having it with us. So now we begin on the hard task of finding a wonderful new home for him, with sadness but knowing it is the right decision.IMG_2177

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.
