What’s Up Wednesday!

Hi out there! What have you all been up to? Anything fun? We have been having a LOT of rain lately. It has been giving us cabin fever big time! We have had a pretty good week in school even without being able to be outside much. We were able to take a little driving trip to a local farm that makes amazing hay sculptures. I’m sure you can tell what story they are from. We also got some yummy apple cider while we were there.

LH has been working in his Thinking Tree journal a lot. Learning how to add and subtract with carrying and borrowing. He has also been studying jellyfish. Did you know? They are their own worst enemy? They eat their own kind more than anything else…talk about a predicament. Lol

WYH has been practicing writing letters and basic addition and subtraction. He has also been doing some painting. Today, he found a bottle of baby powder and decided to squeeze it up into the air to watch all the particles fly all over the house. Lol He loves to watch how things work, react and go together. I wasn’t too upset…thankfully I stopped it before he had it coating everything. Lol

WH has been working on his Zoology part of his science journal. He was studying one of our dogs and writing down his observations. He starts archery club next week. He can’t wait for that. He has been on a homeschool archery program the last four years and really enjoyed it, but was ready to move up to something with a little more substance. He was able to get his own bow and arrows which was really cool.

Ben and I have been busy with all kinds of things. Of course school with the boys. We are also working on starting an Amazon store. There is a whole learning curve, but we are excited about it and hope it brings us some more freedom.

So, what have you been up to? Anything interesting or cool? Any new curriculum you started using and love? Maybe its been a hard week. Let me know what’s been going on and if there is anything I can pray for. I’ll talk to you later! Remember to check out the Facebook Thinking Tree video I did today. You still have time to watch it, comment or ask a question and get in on the giveaway. I hope you have a great night! Mandy

Oh My Goodness!

Guys! I am so excited! Do you all remember when I told you about a monthly subscription box called Kidstir? Well, I had applied to become an affiliate and told them that I would really love to get a box to review for all of you. It had been a while so I thought they must have denied me the affiliation. Well, last night I got two emails! One with the approval and the other a personal one from the affiliate manager welcoming me to their program! I can not wait to get this box and to show and do it with my boys and show all of you! God is opening so many doors it is amazing! I am meeting awesome people and ….I don’t even have words! Please keep sharing my blog with anyone you think would like it and be encouraged by it! I want to share all of these things with people to help them find fun and unique things to do with their kiddos. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and watch for the link to Kidstir to pop up on my blog page. I will be getting it on there soon! Talk to you later! Mandy
