Our Sweet Grand Colton

Today he undergoes a major surgery that will forever change his appearance as we have known him. While we love him more each day we don't even notice the Hairy Nevus he was born with but for the good health of his future removing it is the right choice for him. I am thanking and believing God for His cradling arms around Colton through the entire procedure & always. His parents are so strong and make such a great team working side by side for the better of our sweet Colton. Thank you Jesus for Your blessings of strength through this.

Measurement Man Becomes Gallon Man

We decided to put a different spin on this & I think it will be a great reminder in our classroom instead of being a paper stuck in a notebook.

Measurement Man

As a child this was NOT fun for me to learn and I am so excited to find creative ideas to draw Meggie in as she learns. She is also excited ~ which means she will learn and retain it! Does it get any better?

The Outdoor Classroom

Meggie was very happy to leave the classroom and bring things outdoors today. We did Math, Science, History & Geography and will finish up with Handwriting and Phonics later.

As the sun shines warm on my back I am thinking there is nothing better than to watch her explore and to take it all in while I can.

Ray And Gabe Left For Their Adventure

The guys got up extremely early this morning to catch a plane out of Jax and as I know they are excited, Meggie is not so happy about it.

Blessings In A Jar

I read about this idea a few weeks ago and planned to blog it today with my own spin on it.

I found the original idea at:

Today we are getting ready for New Year's Dinner and preparing for a trip that Ray won for him and Gabe to the Fiesta Bowl. We should, WILL have a great picture for our capsule by the end of the day ~ the family just doesn't know it yet. (Te-He)

I have the perfect piece to add to the jar from something that took place last night. Just after the ball dropped, just after I said good-night to Gabe and Zech and just after I reminded them I was going to bed and to keep the sound down.......BOOOM!!
 And I mean louder than anyone's fireworks in the neighborhood kind of boom! Apparently they decided to make their own "fireworks" by lighting a can of Silly String on fire. Oh, the excitement of raising boys!

Anyway, I will place our New Year's picture on the front of our Blessings Capsule (as I will call it) as well as a piece from their "fireworks" and throughout the year we will drop blessings into the jar as they are bestowed upon us. On this day next year we will have a fun jar to reminisce through.  

Happy New Year!
