Tea Party

At the last minute, we had a tea party/lunch on Thursday. I have not had enough tea parties with my daughter. I have a little boy who doesn't want to be left out for one thing. I've always thought that little boys can't go to tea parties until I saw that a lady in my homeschool group has tea parties with her 2 sons. So I decided to have a tea party and told them to dress up. I'm so glad I did. They had a great time. Next time I'll try to make it more geared toward Clayton........maybe a cowboy theme or something.

King Tut

We went to see the King Tut exhibit on Saturday. We weren't allowed to take pictures of any of the items. It was so neat to see things that were several thousand years old, before the time of Christ! There was at least one item from the reign of Ramses (remember him from the story of Moses?). King Tut's body and caskets were not there. Warren was very disappointed. They showed pictures of his body. It was pretty gross.

Favorite verses

I have many favorite verses, but one of the many is this: Jeremiah 29: 11-13 "'For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. 'Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. 'And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart." Isn't it amazing that the God of the universe who hung the stars will listen to us?

Homemade playdough

We made homemade playdough today. It's much more fun than the store bought kind. Clayton made the blue caterpillar, Carrington made the purple flower, and I made the G.

Do The Right Thing

We watched a neat movie a few days ago. It's called "Come What May". I ordered it from the American Family Association. It was made by a group of 40 homeschoolers. Michael Farris was in it. The moral of the story was to do the right thing no matter what the consequences might be. FIAT JUSTITIA ET PEREAT MUNDUS is Latin for "Do the right thing, come what may". We decided to make this our family motto. I'm trying to help my children see that we need to always do the right thing, and God will take care of the results. One of the many things I am trying to teach them and hoping it will stick. :o)

Kids Workshop

On Saturday we went to Home Depot for the kids workshop. It's so cute. They give each child a project to make with their parent. That day they made book ends. When we got home they painted them. Clayton loves to make stuff with Daddy.
