|Everett trying to help with "stained glass"|
|Lots of people ask how I homeschool so many ages. In this situation the little kids make a craft; the big kids help if they want or if I need them to help out. The big kids then learn about stained glass, hows it's made, it's rich thousand year history, Etc. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stained_glass Now you have: social studies, history, religion, and science all rolled into one craft project. |
Did you notice in the picture above one of my kids ate a few bites of apple and then placed it back in the fruit basket?! lol.
|I love when my kids love when I make mini grilled cheese on fresh baguettes from Panera/ St Louis Bread Company. They are golden buttery nuggets of deliciousness!|
|This baby. I'm gah-gah about him.|
Crafty Home Decor Projects
|I am in love with this shower curtain , so to tide my cravings (I totally intend to buy that someday by the way) I printed a bunch of photos/ads from the 1800's and framed them in frames I've been collecting.|
|Light glare in this, but the wall color in this shot is a little closer to what it actually is|
|This frame was ugly, modern, and white so I dressed it up with a glue stick and a paper doily that came from a box of pastries. Am I completely resourceful or what??|
|Teaching the little kids to sew|
|Penelope says, "Sewing is easy and FUN!"|
|Her finished project. We bought these kits . Most of the the embellishments is ours, you really have to get creative with these (which I like) and they are really fun. I'm helping Sebastian finish a pirate one tomorrow.|
|I was touched that Layla drew and colored this fantastic picture for me. It's a picture of me sleeping with Everett. Love.|
|Ahh here's that climber now. Up the ladder, alone at 1 year old|
|Hilarious. lol. (He loves this!)|
|He heard the chickens when he made this cute face. It seemed as if he was saying to me 'ohh my.'|
|Took this as I walked back from getting the mail.|
|Our puppies have stayed the perfect size so far!!! They are fun. |
Chip is smaller and is on the left. Ranger is the bigger and is on the Right.
|Last week when it was so beautiful and warm I cleaned the porch off of a bunch of junk. I've been decluttering and spring cleaning lately. I love a tidy space.|
