1 week down 35 to go!

This week actually went well I was far from ready but decided to jump in and wow! My Father's World you rock! I will tell you more about that later but for now our week in pictures.

This just cute and she is so clever with her little book road.

We learned why some countries on maps are larger than they appear on a globe

Daddy even got involved because I don't like peeling oranges.

Each of the kids made a John 3:16 poster to remind them to pray that people around the world would hear the Gospel and come to know Jesus. The pictures they clipped from the magazines where just so cool. Of course Isabelle's where all of mass destruction but maybe she just has a heart for hurting people : )

We also studied our front yard habitat


I have to get my workboxes in order and my schedule worked out a little better but I am praying for another good week.

Write a little something...

I found this tutorial a while ago, I am planning on making more but I made this one for my mama for her birthday. It turned out so cute, I am considering heading back to Micheal's for a couple more of these pendants.

Our First Day of School

4th Grade, 1st Grade, Pre-K & Tot School

Here are my four little pupils ready and eager to start their day.

Well that is except for Trenton who doesn't like group time Isabelle who doesn't want to do anything but worksheets and wants me to be her teacher only and Cordelia who was already trying to shirk her required school work.
Piper liked her school work she played on her little blanket with her little plastic eggs full of little puff balls in her little plastic jar for 30-45 minutes seriously I rarely see this child still anymore. But as you can see she loved it!

It is beginning again

We are starting school next week or maybe the week after, I am reluctant. I admit it as excited as I am to start I am still nervous. I want to do better and doing better isn't one of my best qualities. We will be using My Father's World Exploring Countries and Cultures for Trenton and Cordelia and a Letter of the Week curriculum with Isabelle. On top of school we are doing co-op, baseball, softball, dance x 2, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, and Keepers at Home. I am still making a handmade Christmas and great many other things. I feel a little like I am drowning and it all hasn't even started yet.
