It's supposed to be for age 10 and up, so I'm very impressed that Keenan is even attempting it, much less grasping the point of it!
Got these shoes for Moriah on clearance at Children's Place when we were at the mall. They may be my favorite shoes of hers Ever!
Modeling them before Cubbies =)
Oh, this sweet boy... still my baby. I Love that bum up in the air! =)
Moriah has an ear infection and is on Amoxicillin. I knocked it out of the fridge yesterday and it landed on the cap, and broke a perfect circle shaped hole in the top and it leaked all over the floor. How does that happen??
Our craft at MOPS last week
We painted them upside down, and let drips of paint run down the sides - so fun!
Tonight was the closing ceremonies for our Classical Conversations school year of 2012-2013. Each class presented some of the memory work they covered this year. Keenan's class did four weeks of science, in fun songs. They included: Each continent's highest mountain, Parts of a volcano, Four types of ocean floor and Parts of the atmosphere.
Singing one of the songs
Their tutor, Mrs. Mucher (she's AMAZING!) gave each of them a certificate
She said sweet things about each student
