Peter the First

Aaron helping make pizza

Abigail naming her letters while building.
And asking over and over,
"How do you spell lantern?"

Alexander writing a new novel


A friend brought us duck eggs that were really good










Magic machine

"I'm an Impecatory Chicken!"

Funny things happen here during our nightly family readings

Lunch playtime


Didn't know you liked hugging so much Aaron
"Well I do when it is a contest!"

Reading the Hobbit by salt lamp light is fun

Science Experiment


Freezing and shrinking a balloon

Silly Selfies






Really must be growing

Abigail walking in Daddy's boots

The boys caught a toad this past week

We kept him in the bathtub for the afternoon

They named him Peter I

Proving mommy is not scared of the toad

Actually, held him more than any kid.
Andrew wants a toad when he grows up and
he wants to name him Peter II.

Getting ready for Alexander's birthday.
This week we stamped wrapping paper.

8th Wonder of the World

Abigail helping make granola


Abigail learning how to pick out a watermelon

Alexander and his Duplo castle

Alexander wants to learn how to play guitar

Boys working on their dirt staircase





Andrew says the 8th wonder of the world is now complete

Choose your own adventure days have been a really
good way to let the boys choose to learn about what
interests them most at the moment two days a week


Life of Fred books on the shelf mean they often even choose to study math

And it is more fun in a secret hideout



Corn drying time

Do you like my hat?

English kids all like Bingo

LOF Honey





Raising readers



Think Aaron is growing

Keep finding him sleeping in weird places

I love that online summits are available now.
What a great way to learn.

Science Experiment: Freezing effects on gas and bouncing balls

Did you know if you freeze a ball it doesn't bounce as high?
Not as much pressure from the gas inside.

Much more like a rock
