Today the kids and I are working on a science lap book on the human body. We took a trip to the library this morning and got some interesting books about the subject as well as some magic school bus movies for fun. We have never done a lap book, so this should be interesting. In addition to the human body lap book we are also starting our science fair projects for the science showcase at our homeschool group. I picked up a book called
Our trip to the library was pretty typical. We planned the impromptu trip because Chad had Katie with him. She must have sensed that we were going somewhere without her because Chad called and said he had to bring her home to go potty. Katie has issues with public restrooms after and unfortunate event involving and automatic toilet. I thought we were over that, but lately she refuses to go potty anywhere but at home. Anyway- We waited for her to get home and them started our trip. I gave the kids the library rules run down on the way there. Just your normal- use quite voices, don't take every book off of the shelf, no running, no fighting and we are not checking out 50 movies speech. I am pretty sure the librarians want to lock the doors and put the closed sign out when they see us coming, but we always manage to get in:) The kids did a pretty good job today until it was time to check out. I of course can not check out in the self check out because I have to
Now for Thankful Thursday:
I am thankful for our garden. We live in subdivision with a small yard. We are blessed to have my in-laws only a few miles away and they have about 7-8 acres of land. Every year we plant a nice size garden. This year we are doubling the size of our garden as well as planting a large area of sweet corn. Our potatoes went in today. I can not wait to start eating those wonderful fruits and vegetables.
I am also thankful for the nice spring weather we are having here. Even though it is very hard to stay in and do school work when the sun is shinning we are still thrilled that winter seems to be on it's way out.
I am thankful for the skills I am learning to help my family eat healthier. It is so much fun learning all of theses new things. I think I would have made a great pioneer wife:) Well except for the fact that there was no air conditioning, or running water and the fact that I hate the smell of animals. Other than that I would have been great at it.
I am thankful for our troops. My good friend Shelly just got news that her son is being deployed to Afghanistan in January. I pray all of our troops are home safely very soon.
Well, I need to get back upstairs. I heard a funny noise and asked the kids what they are doing and Cameron said "It's okay mom, I'm just doing an experiment". That is always scary! Sorry for such a rambling post about nothing. There is just not a lot of fun stuff going on right now.
