Love the Happy V-Day thing!
Happy V-day breakfast (look closely & you MAY see the heart-shaped eggs, compliments of a friend who gave us the mold)!!
Well.............. I thought I'd join the crowd of several of you good pals & become pregnant! We're so excited and also keep telling ourselves that God is certainly in charge because it's a bit crazy here right now as well! Luckily Tony is the very best dad in the whole world & he is also WAY better at adapting and rolling with all the punches life throws out. So...let the good times roll!
Luckily I'm not nearly as sick as I was with the boys, but Tony has been incredibly patient because I've been nauseous pretty much all the day & all the night. He helps out a lot, and my favorite is when Jaydon gets really close, kisses the "baby" and says, "hi baby" in his little voice. Jyson is also very quick to say, "Oh, Mommy needs that for the baby," in reference to the best of whatever kind of food. So wonderful. They're certain I need to have "10-tuplet" boys so that they can wrestle Daddy (Tony) and win!
Anyway...the rest of our life is awesome as well. I feel so blessed (even on yucky, my-house-is-messy-I-feel-barfy-but-can't-quite-throw-up-days---you all know what I mean, you've been there, lived that!)!!
And here are this week's random pictures...
Here is the class pet Lizzy-the-Lizard-----may she not die like last year's hamster (tumor) & guinea pig (cleaner poisoning). Seriously, we were cursed.
Here are some pics of "Colonial Day" I did with my students awhile back.
This one is of me teaching the little darlings about bread while we passed around the whipping cream they shook into homemade butter-yummeroo!!
This one is the candle-dipping station--they LOVE doing it & the candles turn out into the most beautiful, slightly lumpy, great-smelling homemade candles ever!!
Here is one of the boys getting "silhouetted" by his mother--I know, he looks thrilled. Yah, he really is.
This is the paper quilt-making station.
And, finally, this is the "John Hancock" penmanship center (bamboo skewers w/ watered down tempera paint--magic!)
