Valentine Fun

Today is bittersweet for us.  As you’ll see below, the boys and I have been having lots of fun celebrating Valentine’s Day.  However, today is Mahayla’s 13th birthday and she’s sick.  She and I were supposed to be going to CIY Believe together later this afternoon with the Jr. High youth group, too.  Oh well,…

Christmas Train Ride

This past weekend, our family took a Christmas train ride at the Bluegrass Railroad Museum.  An old-fashioned steam engine pulled four antique passenger cars for an hour’s drive through the countryside.  The cars were decked out with lights and streamers, the conductor punched letters into our tickets Polar Express style, and merry music played in…

Names of Jesus Unit

This has been such a relaxing and awesome study!  Using Easy Fun School’s free unit titled The Names of Jesus, we’ve spent a little time each day focusing on one of His names from the Bible and creating a scrapbook-style keepsake for each name. I chose not to include most of the other suggestions from…

Stuffed Felt Ornaments

  These turned out so cute, and they were fairly easy for a beginning to intermediate sewing project. Draw the shape onto a piece of felt, making it about 1/4″ bigger than you’d like the finished product to be. Double the felt and cut out the front and back pieces at the same time. Decide…

President’s Day Math

I just wanted to share what a hit this math activity was last week. Using the information sheets that the website provides, the kids had to fill out a chart to show how many presidents have come from which states.  Then, they used graph paper to create a bar graph to show the information from the chart.  Fun…
