My girls were begging for hay. But after the ten minute drive home I was sneezing like crazy!
This time of year brings out the Claritin in me.
The high school homecoming parade passes right in front of my parents house. There are very few children that live on the street nowadays so we gathered all the cousins to rake in the loot! The weather was perfect this evening making candy gathering even more enjoyable!
My dad took the time to show the kids how the mailbox worked and the kids were totally interested! It was cute.
After earning five stickers the girls get to pull out if the prize jar!
They earn a sticker by good attitude and behavior... but if I have to put someone in time out well they don't get a sticker. It helps us get through our day and encourages cooperation from my little students.
Every week the girls draw a name out of our paper people jar. They are die cut people with names of people we know written on them. We pray for these people all week and also do something nice for them, like make a card, bake something or whatever ideas we come up with...its fun.
This week we made chocolate chip pound cakes!!
Our amazing kids ministry supports two orphans in Thailand and we put on an international food tasting to raise money for the kids. And it was beautiful and tasty!!
I got to make thai salad with rose petals! It was fun!
My hubs would have loved it!
Writing goals for home school this was one of my top! That my girls would have genuine friendship...though we have plenty of bickering during the day we've begun to have more and more moments of sweet interaction that blesses my soul! When we dropped everyone off at school for the day my girls had very little of these times if ever.
