Geography Studies


We decided to continue the boys Geography Studies from the One Room Schoolhouse. The boys have a blast looking up and presenting the information on the state they have picked. This week we are trying something a little new and they are making a power-point presentation. They "present" their state on Monday evening that way Joel can be here. I don't think I am going to have them do a power-point every week but alternate it with an actual report, poster, or some kind of model. I haven't quite worked out all the kinks but it should bring more life to Geography :)

The Past 2 Months...

We are finally settling into our new home. Okay well I am to tired to settle in anymore so the upstairs closet and a corner in my dining room still need attended to. I may get to it eventually but for now I just don't look in those directions ;)

We picked out our new couch almost 2 weeks ago and it was delivered on Valentine's Day - the perfect Anniversary present!! We are still waiting for Micah and Xavier's bedroom sets to get here. Hopefully we will get them next weekend as the headboard for Micah's bed was scheduled to be in the warehouse Feb. 20th and it was the main thing we had to wait on. The boys are definitely excited about having new dressers, a nightstand and a bed for Micah. We are slowly getting new furniture, but we have been truly blessed!! Everything is paid for and we are sticking to not owing anyone anything.

Not a lot has been happening around here. Our days are pretty typical: wake up, eat breakfast, do chores, school, play outside/go to park, eat dinner, hang out, Bible reading, watch TV, go to bed.

Isaac talks more and more each day. We got him an imitation plasma car from Wally-World. He loves it, and spends his mornings riding in a circle around the house going to "work" like Dada. Of course he has 2 jobs: 1 he works on helicopters and 2 he is a police man. If he isn't riding his car, he is yelling at someone to put "choo choo" on TV. Mistake #1 buying Thomas Train video. If Isaac had his way it would be on 24/7 (even when he is not in the room).

I will try to get some pics of the house and boys soon. Love to you all!

Isaac Photo Op

When I took my camera out to take a few pictures Isaac decided he would be my muse. Here he is in all his glory. (P.S. that is my new couch - YAY)!!




Meet ??

As far as the vet is concerned his name is Oreo. However, he is normally referred to as CAT. As in "Gordo, leave the CAT alone" or "Isaac, put the CAT down". Regardless of his name (or lack of it) he is pretty cool.

Meet Gordo

Here is our puppy :) What was I thinking? He is a handful, but puppies normally are.

Change Is In The Air

Okay so I decided to change the look of the blog again... Well it would all be okay if my pics were not cut 1/2 way off. Only problem is I can either leave them that way or re-enter all the html codes. So for now they are being left alone. (That is just way to much re-entering). I may slowly start to fix them, but for now if you are looking at past pics you are going to have to click on it to see the whole thing.

On another note I know I haven't posted since October. I will try to start posting regularly again (at least pics) so you can see the boys. My next post I will start playing "catch up" over the past month and a half :o)
