A little bit of this and a little bit of that

Just a little bit of what we have been up to...

a little bit of painting

A little bit of Kenna cuteness. I so love this age. Even when she is angry or throwing a tantrum, I just want to eat her up!

Look at the bed head!

Here is a sampling of what the boys have been doing during school. We are nearing the end of our Language Arts block for both of them. Blake has been hearing stories from the Old Testament and Jacob has been continuing on with learing the consonants through fairy tales by the Grimm brothers.

Noah's ark- a collaboration between Blake, Daddy and I

We will be finishing up our Language Arts block next week for both boys and then it is on to math! Blake will be doing a consolidative review of everything we have learned this year and Jacob will be introduced to the four processes (through a story about gnomes).


  1. Just wanted to say how great the photos of your son's work are and that I am happy to have found your blog!

  2. Love it all! But, I have to admit that I love the figures of everyone at the well the best... that's who we named our Bekah after! :) Happy Valentine's Day early!

  3. Thanks Sara and welcome! Colleen- Rebekkah was one of the names we considered for MaKenna!!! Hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day!
