Owl Prowl

Saturday, November 23, 2013

I am late posting this but weekend before last we went on an owl prowl at Steele creek park , we had so much fun , Riley loves the outdoors and nature as much as I do , we love to study animals so we were really excited about this class , we learned a lot . Their favorite part was dissecting owl pellets , will definitely order some of these for the kids to do at home , since Riley talked about this for a week afterwards . The night we did this the temp. was in the twenties , we did not go prepared , I really can't say why we went unprepared , I should know how to dress for night walks in freezing weather since I used to coon hunt with my aunt , uncle and papaw but I just was not thinking , next time we are wearing layers of clothing and getting hand and feet warmers , even though we did not get to see an owl we heard a few and that was exciting and I am sure this will be a great memory for them .


Didn't get any pictures of our walk because I left the camera back in the classroom .

Ooooh Boy !

Sunday, October 13, 2013

 So whats it like to have a boy around the house ? Well let me start off by saying I am very thankful that God blessed me with my little man Job , I prayed for many years that he would someday give me a little boy . With that said when Job was 3 months old people would ask me if I could tell the difference between boys and girls yet , I would say no , and then Job started to crawl and at 9 months he started walking , he has never slowed down since , instead of calling him my little man I think I should call him my wild man because he is the wildest child I have ever had :) This boy keeps me on my toes all day long , he climbs on everything , the other day I ask him to give mama a kiss and he pulled my glasses off and hit me with them  but some days he is very sweet and he is a mama's boy and I love my boy , I just can't turn my back on this boy for a minute, yes there is a difference between boys and girls , and if you have been blessed with both then you are very blessed indeed . Our days are full of excitement since Job came into our lives , Here are some of my favorite pictures of my little (wild) man  - 


He always has a smile on his face , he is such a happy boy , and I am a happy mama .

Meet Rosemary

Our First 2 Weeks Of School

Sunday, September 15, 2013

We just finished up our second week of school , I guess its true that each year gets easier , we are so glad to be back on our school schedule , not that I have ever been able to keep a schedule yet but I never stop trying , I think this year will be easier than last because we both know what is expected of us.
So far we are enjoying Galloping the Globe , we have spent the first 2 weeks just studying the world , we read how to make an apple pie and see the world , did apple art and made an apple pie .  

we cut an apple in half and dipped it in paint and used markers for the stems and leaves .


look who got the big cone this year !
