No Time, No Time

So, this will be another quick kinda random post, but this one will be just about all pictures. It seems like I only have time for a post with my thoughts or a post with pictures, but not both.  I know that my family that reads this blog could care less about what I have to say . . . they just want to see pictures. 

 So here goes -

Here is a picture of the cute little cookies we made for Thanksgiving.  Okay, well, I said that "we" made them, but in reality - I did.  I brought the kids over to show them how to make the cookies, but all they wanted to do was eat them!  My sweet husband, um "offered" to help, but then later quit because apparently I have some serious perfectionist issues.  I have no idea what he is talking about!  Please no comment, mom!

What in the world are we going to do in science with marshmallows, Qtips, and toothpicks?

Why, little man and I made a model of an insect.  See the three body parts, two antennas, and six legs?

Not much makes me happier then seeing my boys reading.  But, if I told the truth, then I would have to admit that he was assigned this book to read and later declared it "stupid."  It was The Cabin Faced West which has a girl for the main character, so I am thinking that had something to do with his (and his brother's) opinion.  Surely one day they will enjoy a book!

I honestly can not even remember what we were doing.  Something hands on in math and probably with fractions.  Helpful, right?! Oh wait. . . I remember.  Never mind, no I don't.  I thought we were ordering fractions, but then I remembered that we did that with construction paper "candy bars."  I could just look it up in the teacher's book, but it's not worth it to me! 

I do remember what Little Man was doing.  We were making congruent shapes on our geoboards.  He loved this activity! What?  No, of course he didn't shoot any of his geobands across the room at his brothers.  He would never ever do something like that!  I mean, we homeschool for goodness sake.  My children NEVER misbehave!  Bahahahahaha! 

Oh, the joys of division.  At least it is more fun on the white board!

Simplifying expressions is also more fun on the whiteboard!

That's all I've got right now!  We've been having a good time doing some fun Christmas activities and hopefully I will post about those sometime before next Christmas!

Back With Some Randomness

Okay, so it has been one entire month since I have written a blog post.  That is just crazy, but in my defense we have been down right busy. 

First, we went to Disneyworld for a week.  So. Much. Fun. (Like always!)  We stayed off site this time and we thought it was great.  Even though you aren't in your room that much, it can get kinda cramped in those little rooms.  The 3 bedroom condo worked out a lot better for us!  Anyway, the boys loved riding all the rides.  Little Man was really disappointed that he wasn't tall enough to ride Rockin' Roller Coaster, but he enjoyed Tower of Terror NINE times.  Seriously. 

Hands down our overall favorite ride was Expedition Everest at Animal Kingdom.

Oh, word of advice - if you have three boys that are "all boy" then the Indiana Jones Stunt Show might not be the best idea.  Giving each of them an Indiana Jones whip for Christmas will most definitely not be our smartest move as parents.  I am totally blaming my husband for that dandy idea!

The next week was Thanksgiving and we were busy visiting with family and eating some good good food!

Last weekend I attended the Deeper Still Conference with Kay Arthur, Beth Moore, and Priscilla Shirer.  Wow.  That's all I can say.  It was beyond great!  14,000 women. Oh my!  If you've never been, you have one last chance.  The last Deeper Still will be next summer in Kentucky (I think).  It would be worth your travels!

So, here I am.  We've been doing school, but obviously I haven't blogged about it.  This upcoming week is our last week before we break for Christmas and I hope to have a rather light week, honestly. 

I did get a laptop for an early Christmas present so maybe I will blog a little more frequently, now.  We'll see.  Anyway, it's good to be back.  I've missed my bloggy friends!

P.S.  Thanks Mrs. Jennifer for the motivation!
