the secret to your kids having school done by 830am!? 





the Wii!!!!

(this mama is hopeful this will last more than a week! ha! )

I’ve been wanting to do memory verses as part of our school for a long time! I’ve wanted to have some kind of system down before starting… or at least a starting POINT! lol…I had a few ideas!!! but my favorite has been a combo of those ideas… here are those ideas…

the other idea was just to write 10 references on a card and work on memorizing them until they know them… then put a sicker by the reference. 

Since we love ATC cards… I’m thinking it would be fun to do something like an ATC book… I like the box idea above tho… to review all the verses… so owe may just start with boxes…. and then add our atc’s to a book after we fill a box? then I could keep everyone’s verse cards in one box which would be easier for me now… 

so the idea is to print or write on these 2 1/2 by 3 1/2 cards… the verses I’m starting with are from the love dare book. I choose them because they are so important for our life. to LOVE… so once the kids have memorized them I’ll let them put a sticker on the back… and each time we review if they remembered it they can add another sticker. 

The Theme right now is Love is patient. We may have to add an additional verse! We all struggle with this! we get annoyed at each other very easily! 

1 Thessalonians 5:15 See then no one pays back evil for evil, but always try to do good to each other and to all people.

Sage Patrick Lane… he is all about syllables right now… 

so here is the order

Ben 7

Heather 5

Ethan 8

Lane 6

Attie 8

Lilli 7

Gena 6


see that two of each number but 5 hummm… that’s CRAZY! isn’t it? I mean I don’t think I could’ve done that on purpose! It reminds me of those emails you get about God and math! the middle of the bible and such! Bizarre! 

Lane is doing well in math… he is almost done with primer! and then we start all over really mastering thos beginning skills! i am very excited with how well he has FINALLY picked up skip counting… learning to tell time now! ok gtg’


i’ll quit this is a LOAD… and I printed TONS more for next week! there is hope for lane and attie! even tho now it’s been 4 days with attie still having NO CLUE what letter F is or the sound it makes! ROFLOL!!!!

anyway…. cute lapbooks to show for it! even if it’s slow going!


The healing oil worked VERY well! The war (aka slip and slide!) wounds had to be treated for two days. with Apis, healing oil and renew. The sunburn is mostly gone with no pain. It’s amazing really! a painless sunburn?! I didn’t know it was possible!

I just ordered Drive Thru History thru this co-op

I am so excited we watched the trailers here

we are all in love with them! They sound so fun! :) The boys are already asking when they will be here!

#1 Way to Save

I’ve done quite a bit of bragging on Lane these last few days.. but today he started in his first steps reading book. Wow I am gushing with pride! He has picked up words and letter sounds and letter shapes so well! I am tickled! I know each child is different! but Wow… it is so exciting to see him picking it up so easily! 

I’ve put math on hold for a few weeks for Ethan and lane to get  a hold of reading better… It’s so exciting to see the progress.

I keep forgetting to post this and just remembered… (do you think I am trying to find reason NOT to get out of this chair! well i think you are right! LOL)

So we are doing school the other day and Lane was waiting for some help. All of a sudden he yells out… “MOM, THIS BOOK GETS HARDER!”

ROFLOL! :) ummmm… “Yes Lane it does! that’s how you get smarter! Each day the page teaches you a bit more and each day you get smarter! Isn’t that great!? :) ”

“oh um yes, I guess!” He replied!

I have lots of there to post… but i think I’ll just share these other three… I don’t have time to type as much as I’d like today! So much to do!

I should’ve cropped it… It was a cool way to take our pictures I thought… it was the DOOR into the creation museum! :)

They have a patch of yellow and purple flower patches outside by all the bridges and I loved taking shots of the girls in their dressy dresses! :)

Ok I have to go to the store today. And I need to get my camera ready. We are doing a photo a day and need to get more shots! :)
