There was an old lady.....

Bye Bye January - Hello February!
February is extremely busy (good busy) for us. 
So much going on in Homeschool and our social lives! 



We have two versions of this book today and used them for a lesson...

Felt Story Kit






Back in June of 2011, I won a drawing for this adorable Story Felt Kit with book from Education Jump Off (Joyce is a fellow homeschooling mom)  It's SOOO cute and fun.  I read the story and we used the felt kit to animate it all. The girls loved it!

Superbowl Inspiration and Tutorial

Creating a cute Superbowl tablescape is easy and can be inexpensive with just a few items!  I downloaded these cute party printables from Catch My Party last week and knew I had to “girl” them up a little…lol…
Thank you 9 to 5 mom for creating these!
We are having a few friends over for the big game! 
(Let me put a disclaimer here...we are NEITHER Giants Fans or Patriots Fans, we are Vikings Fans, but since they are playing golf instead of football right now, we are routing for the Patriots, ONLY because the hubster is in a "pool" at work and momma needs a  new pair of shoes...lol)





TIP 1: Mix and Match things...
Took the food tents and some of the other printables..used a toothpick to insert it...cute way to incorporate the two...both found at Catch My Party at the link above.

 TIP 2: REUSE and RECYCLE
I have used this indoor.outdoor carpet piece for Easter Grass, Football turf,  Baseball turf and more for parties...worth the $ 8.00 I spent on it! REUSE! 

TIP 3:  Use what you have!

The Time In Between

Finally all the children are healthy again...boy last week was rough!  
End of the month is always a time of catch up, mish mosh for us...usually we are about done with our unit studies for that month so we are just doing some clean up work...
As a reward for really being good last week while all under the weather, I decided to take them to one of their favorite places, Chuck E Cheese.
We had the place to ourselves for the two hours we were there! 



When we returned, we had school....Read this today!
LOVE IT!


Zachary had an assignment to make something using his educational LEGOs that had the theme of Renewable Energy...he made this wind turbine. Ran on a motor and worked like a charm!
