Then we examined our van. We talked about everything from hubcaps to gear shifts. They liked sitting in the drivers seat and suddenly had a new understanding of all the things Mommy has to pay attention to on the road.

The kids learned about storms, we watched videos, and even had a real storm.
(The kids did make a weather forecast video for weather week, but for some reason it's not loading! I also have a few other videos to post, but will have to wait till the system works).

So I had some pictures from Hannah's graduation and a few other things, but here's what happened to our computer. So I'll have to retrieve those when it's cooperating : )
These kids cannot just eat a sandwich, no matter how many rules we impose. They just get destroyed no matter what. Here is a picture of the pb and j sandwiches stabbed with pretzels.
My trick of always having a bowl of apples on the table to provide a nutritious snack seems to have backfired. They came back to the shower and asked if they could have apples. I found this when I got back. They each had an apple, but Colin had taken bites out of all the other apples, too. I even pulled one out he had put back in the basket. That's 8 apples chewed up by 3 kids!!
I woke up one morning to this. All three blinds ties (with 5 ties each) knotted together in one huge ball with clothes hangers on them. Of course half of Colin's clothes were now in the floor also. I don't know where they come up with this stuff. It took me a good 10 minutes to untangle everything.
For some reason, Dax loves getting in this thing- haha
This is the prime real estate for hide- and- seek games.
They chose "scenes" from the book and made a storyboard.
: ) but she said her lines well and was fun to work with so I suppose along with all the other tempermental actresses out there, she'll be hired again. Hannah did a great job holding props, being a gopher, and acting out her own lines- extremely careful about her memorization. I wasn't sure how to edit things in our new computer, but it worked out easily, the only problem being it moves from scene to scene a little too quickly and I couldn't figure out how to space it better. So here's their movie debut if you missed it on Facebook!
I've got fun plans for the other lessons and it looks like storms are on their way, so they'll get to experience some of what we'll talk about.
Colin's birthday is this Saturday! We're planning a little water fun!
