This Week

Big Helper

Aaron's latest chess puzzle for you. WHITE to move and CHECKMATE IN ONE.

Launch day "Birthday" party for reading cards

Toasting with Sprite and Poprocks

Wanted to celebrate all of our hard work with our kids, thank them for their help,

and just generally get them excited about our family business. We're wild and crazy like that.

Seriously, when did he get so big?

Boys found a little girl outside.

She followed them home to play. (She's 8 years old).

Boys making presents to take back for their cousins.

SHHHHH! (You can keep a secret right?)

Easter book activity. Aaron drew a harvest waiting to be picked.

Aaron drew an empty tomb on the computer.

Making a rag garland.

Aaron loves to tie knot.

Andrew loves window crayons.

Baby loves to be just like his big brothers.

Andrew really wanted to write all of this to all of you (he had the option of just drawing a picture instead), but he got tired and eventually let mommy finish.

Green Week

While Mommy was at class Aaron wanted to be sneaky and
fill up her Easter basket with homemade chocolate cookies,
so he got Daddy to help him make them.

Baby can build big towers now.

Baby likes to read

He keeps stealing the phonics book out of the storage cube
where it is supposed to be put away for now.

Easter book illustration activity, working against members of your house.

Now try that again together

Green week is a good time for slime science!

Green pudding slime snack


Slime by Andrew ( He got tired and sloppy in the middle so we let him stop writing for the day)

Mixing up some slime

Playing with Oobleck

Going to get slimed

Baby liked oobleck (cornstarch plus water, totally okay for baby play, he didn't get to play with the other kinds in case he would try to eat them).

Messy though

We also tried to make a bouncy ball, but it didn't bounce very well.

Slime treats (jello)

Planting a resurrection garden
