Hey Heather..I copied and pasted this one..LOL

Let’s see…we’ve had a busy but nice week. Having Daddy home all day has been an adjustment..but we’ve made it through 2 full days and I am finding a nice groove and I think overall it’s going to be great..it’s a good thing we get along so well though I tell ya..LOL.

Schooltime with Declan has become leaps and bounds easier! I shut us up in the office and Eric keeps the wee ones occupied..so we’ve been getting a LOT done in a short time.. It’s great. We’ve been working on some “fun” learning and one of the packs we did was Floating or Sinking..Declan loves having to hypothesize and test his theories:

we’ve also gotten to play outside even more..the morning “chores” take a lot less time when 2 adults are doing them! The other day I made the kids paintable chalk.. It’s Corn Starch,water and food coloring..some say equal parts of the corn starch and water..but I mixed way more starch so the “paint” would be thick like tempera paint…you just have to mix a little at a time. Well they LOVED it..went on like paint but dried like chalk..very cool!

Oh Ziah got some new bows from Alison and Tracy at FBB.. It’s been awhile since we’ve ordered any and Ziah was THRILLED to get them!

How they knew she was a Frog loving girl I don’t know!Thanks for the special bow ladies!

on to the ones to match specific outfits!

Here’s her yellow,lavender and gray Pony O!

and her Yellows and white one!

Yesterday Declan finally had enough money for a new Star Wars Lego set.. he was so excited. Here he is with it….except for 2 minor corrections my 6 year old built this totally on his own! I am so impressed with him!

Thanks lol I have to check and see if it still crashes my browser since you said you removed some of the add-ons.

Cute bows and yay Declan! That's a great job!

Excellent job Declan!
I love the colours in Ziah bows, especialy the yellow,lavender and gray. I need some yellow ones.

They looked like they loved painting. I have to get around to doing that with Miguel and the neighbors before we go. Declan did really good with the lego ship. Does he like puzzles? The bows are really cute. Eventually I'll breakdown and buy them for myself since Miguel would look silly with bows. Not saying that he wouldn't want to wear them.
