Weekly Wrap Up 2

We use Wii fit as some P.E. on rainy days. :) It's a lot of fun to cheer each other on.

Love when they try the yoga


Some play dough time
Starfall is a big hit with Timmy. He reads and enjoys it without even knowing it.

We talked about what pumpkins need to grow, then each of us painted something pumpkins need to grow on our pumpkin. :)

Here are Evangeline's leaves

Caleb's sunshine
Timothy's water

Some color match game time with big sis

We are using the Prairie Primer this year and so is Evangeline's best friend. They had a sleepover and studied sunshine and it's effects. Then they sewed ribbons on sun bonnets I had sewn the week before.

Strange things I find myself saying to my children

"I don't know, I am no G.I. Joe expert just because I married one"

Weekly Wrap up

We took a week off of the normal routine to do some review.
Focusing on counting by 10's with my first grader and the numbers and letters he still gets confused occasionally.

This was a fun scavenger hunt we started the week off with. It was a big hit with all 4 kids. :)
They looked for whatever number/letter I called out.

We did alot of counting by 10 games online, coloring number charts, ect...
But this game was the biggest hit. WE made a toy store and everything was priced in 10's. Timmy had a bag of dimes to buy items with.
Here is my Pre-Ker with his lapbook we made this week. It was Are you my Mother and it was a huge hit.
We traced everyones hand and made a stuffed turkey for each of us.

We also baked PB/oatmeal cookies. Yummy
Stuffing the hands w/ batting
The finished family
To end the week we took a trip to the pumpkin patch
Check out for more weekly wrap ups.

Turkey Stuffies

Totally going to try and sew these super cute Hand Turkey Stuffies for Thanksgiving Decor this week.
We don't really do Halloween in this house so I am skipping straight to Thanksgiving decor and gifts.
Our first year in the new house and I want to really make it special and help the kids remember to truely be thankful for everything God has done and is doing for us. :)

I will be sewing projects off and on and will do my best to post the results.

Here is another one we may try today as well.

Oh and possibly these too. Way cute

Friday afternoon lunch. We decided to make mini burgers.

Here Timmy is cutting out mini buns from bread with a cup. :)

Here Evangeline is cutting topping. Mini slices of cheese and cherry tomato sliced

The mini burger bar we set up. Yummmmm

We finally have a GI JOE room for our boys. Something my hubby has been waiting for since we had a boy. They loveeeeee it and Timmy likes to sit on his bed and just look around at his room.
(he is pretending to sleep here just for the pic)

Picked up a Draw Write Now book from the library after Abbie finally showed me where they were. :) Timmy loves them and here is his first masterpiece. Notice he cut his tree top out to be a heart.
