And this is why homeschooling is such fun. We were studying the Maori Warriors. He-Man was voted to be our guinea pig. We had lots of fun using (washable) crayola markers to try and replicate some of the designs we saw. This is going to be a lovely blackmail shot later in life.

Muscles hereby hates the decimal point and decided the world would be much better off without it.

This is how my morning went today. At 8:00 a.m. I had two fillings replaced and two cavities filled. This left my face half paralyzed. My face was numb and when I tried to talk I lisped. Hubby made chocolate chip pancakes, which I could not eat because I could not feel my face. Instead… Read More Spring Cleaning with Children
Today, as we were working outside in the yard, my four year old had to go to time out for fighting with his older brothers.

Muscles has been losing a lot of teeth lately. We were driving in the car and he was lamenting how long it took for the last one to come out. Muscles: “It seemed like it was never going to come out! I was almost ready to have someone punch me in the mouth to get… Read More No Love Lost
Although we still have winter gear out around here, the crocuses are up and that is a good sign. Warrior Princess insisted on wearing her snow hat around the house all day. And the boys finally got to go skiing this past weekend! Love these brave little flowers.
