My Daughter

I just have to brag out about my Jaedyn Belle this morning.  She turned 8 in January.  When my children turn 8 we have them start doing Fast Sunday's with us.  Now that church starts at 1 pm it is really hard to fast so long.  About 30 minutes ago she told me she was hungry.  I told her since she fasted through breakfast that she could go ahead and eat lunch if she wanted.  She told me no, she wants to fast.  So proud of that girl and the choices she makes!  When she was baptized she was just giddy with excitement.  When she came out of the water she was so excited she wanted to do it again.  I love that girl and the example she is!

Preston's Prayers

I love to hear Preston's prayers.  He tells stories in his prayers.  As it should be.  Kyle is flying home from Chicago right now.  Preston said prayers for dinner tonight.  He was going on naming each one of us saying that he loves us and he comes to Kyle and says, "I love dad..."  then he pauses and says, "but I miss dad."  So sweet and so real.

He misses his dad everyday while he is at work.  He will ask me, "Is dad driving?" (a.k.a. "Is dad on his way home from work.")  Today we tried to explain that no he is not driving but he is in an airplane in the sky coming home.  He was not quite sure how to understand this. 

Cerreta Chocolate Factory

We went to the Chocolate Factory in Glendale. The kids had a lot of fun. I wanted to come home and watch "I Love Lucy" after watching the candy go down the conveyer belt. After they got to make Chocolate Pizzas.

Since I don't like chocolate, the kids were a little concerned about me walking through with the nasty chocolate smell.  I joked with them that I might have to wear a mask.  I didn't and I survived. 

Happy Valentines to my SWEET family.  It sure has been a fun school year so far.

Homeschool Perks: Fun Night of Learning

The kids and I stayed up past the I bedtime last night.  We had a lot if fun while they were learning Science and they didn't even know it.  I got to teach them about the Creation and how Science goes along with it.  The different parts of Science.  Drew learned that there is a Science called Zoology and was very excited about that.  Then we started talking about Galileo and the pendulum and how it works.  We watched a bunch of cool YouTube videos showing pendulums and some how started watching videos about experiments with eggs.  Fun night and they didn't even realize they were learning.
