So excited to report that Nate earned a 100% on an incredibly hard science test.  We are SO proud of him.  He studied hard for it and earned every bit of that grade!

So Sweet


Augh!  All of September I kept saying to myself "I need to write this stuff down and blog later.  After that one more thing I'm going to go sit down and blog."  And now, September has come and gone.  We did accomplish much and have a few pictures to prove it :)

Totally Terrific Tuesday

Tuesday, August 28, 2012

I love days like this one.  School work finished, meals cooked, laundry is caught up, AND we made cookies that we decorated.  Not exactly sure how all that happened, but I'm not looking a gift horse in the mouth.  Praise God for a Totally Terrific Tuesday.

Diligence = Awesomeness
OOOOooooo...a closer view.

Look Judah!
Are they finished yet?
How much longer?

Finally finished!

The fun stuff!
I love this one.
And just to top it all off, I found this in my grading pile today.  I especially like number 10.  Funny :)

Plus, the boys went canoeing again tonight, and when they came home, the younger kids got a chance to test out Zoology Experiment #2 on Dad.  Jello testing:  Right up his alley.  We learned that humans, unlike dogs, depend upon their sight equally as well or even greater than their sense of smell.  Great ending to a fun day.

Good Times

Tuesday, August 21, 2012

Last night Ben gave Sonora and Nate a guitar lesson.  It was Sonora's first.

Sonora's First Lesson
We had an unexpected visitor this afternoon.  Judah was SO pleased.  Later this afternoon Judah's Bible Verse said "A friend loves at all times."

Working hard
Almost got it!
Later on this afternoon I played Dog Lotto with Judah.  I told him to say BINGO after he covered his board.  Every time I would hand him a new card he said something new.  The first time it was "Bingo!"  Then, "BingDing!"  And Finally, he said "DingDong!" when he got the last one.  Harper and I laughed and laughed.

Good times.

Yep, it's Monday

Well, it's our third week in and we have finally added in everything that we planned on adding this year.    It was not without bumps in the road, but we made it through and even thought to stop and snap ONE photo today.
