Most People Think…

Count the gains. Not the losses. We truly gain so much when we give up ourselves. God asks us to make sacrifices. He asks us to put others first. He asks us to give.  In return He promises to provide for our needs. He promises to take care of us. We can be assured when we give up, we gain…because we are following Him. That is the only gain we need.:

Groundhog Day Crafts

We found some groundhog day crafts for this year thanks to good ole Pinterest. We did ours early so I could share with you our favorites. We cut out a groundhog and glued him to a black sheet of paper. We then laid him down and colored with chalk all around him making his shadow. Our coloring is a work in progress, but I’m in a “color outside the lines” kind of place with our school.

Jump, jump off the boat!!

#tbt to our first camping trip!

We were out on the canoe when the largest spider ever decided to climb onto my 5 yr old’s shoulder. My husband tried to be sneaky and get it off without either of us noticing. He failed. Miserably. I saw it and continued to search the boat continuously as if we were taking on water. And back to that whole “my husband failed” thing. Yep, I see the rat spider scampering across the boat and so does the kid.

CiCi’s Pizza Field Trip

I haven’t done a homeschool update in a few months because we’ve been busy with the holidays and now with school and field trips! We recently took a field trip to CiCi’s Pizza. I had never eaten here because we honestly just don’t eat out that much, but who wouldn’t love a field trip like this? The kids learned the importance of customer service in an establishment such as this, what’s involved in making pizzas, as well as eating the pizza they made. Everybody had a blast and went away with full bellies!

Apparently I could’ve been saving all this time by cooking our homemade pizzas at 500° for 5 minutes! Each child walked away with a certificate with a guaranteed job once they turn 16! It was an enjoyable field trip for all!
