This year for history we are learning about Rome to the Reformation and trying all sorts of interesting foods. I finally remembered to take some pictures this past week when we cooked up some delicious lefse. I love it when school is yummy!

Tea Party

A picture from a tea party we attended last month. 
I love these girls to pieces and love their giving hearts.

March Birthdays 2014

 We had a busy start to the month of March. My parents arrive for a week of fun, birthday parties and a little bit of school. Of course we got to take them around to all of our normal activities!

Happy Birthday Karolyn! 10 years old already.

Kolsen turned 12 this year. I can't believe he'll be a teenager next year!

The little girls have been staying busy too!

Do you need a manicure?

The girls LOVE their new nail supplies and have been painting their nails a few different times each week. Thanks, Aunt Theresa for some of the new toys.

My Father's World

I love getting to spend my days learning with my kids each day. The My Father's World curriculum is amazing and such a wonderful fit for our family. This year I'm doing the kindergarten curriculum with Kassidy (and Kaylee loves doing all the crafts and listening to all the books too) and the kids are all participating in the MFW Rome to the Reformation. I love, love, love that we can do all this learning together as a family and the kids all have amazing incites to share with each other.

Kassidy learned about turtles last week and made a yummy turtle snack.

 We just finished learning about the Romans and finished the week out with a Roman Feast. The kids had fun and enjoyed making dad dress up with them. I think we used all the sheets, table clothes and belts in the house. :)

I'm pretty sure the Roman Empire failed in part because they ate lying down. We had so much fun, but lying down wasn't my favorite way to eat food. Luckily we had plenty of couch cushions, gymnastics mats and pillows to make everyone a couch to lounge on.

Tea Time

The girls and I were able to attend a special tea party this past week out at the Woodlands. The girls loved dressing up and wearing hats and they had a great time serving tea and cake to all our beautiful friends at Woodlands. I'm so glad that our homeschooling schedule allows us time to volunteer and get involved in the lives of others.
