Week 10 is brought to you by Ella, my 7 year old daughter. I’ve picked my camera up for fun more during this P52 than possibly ever before and it’s fun to see her get excited about it too! She asked me if she could take some pictures and here are a few she came up with. I love seeing life through her eyes!
My baby turned 6. He came into this world on his own schedule and nothing has changed since! 😀 He’s all about Star Wars and Legos and this birthday was nothing but! He was beside himself with excitement to host some friends for a party. Life is so bittersweet. It’s such a joy to watch his grow up but I do wish I could keep him little forever.
Happy birthday, Levi. We love you! xo

(I was proud of myself for just being in the moment on his actual birthday!)
My sweet mother-in-law made a basket of science experiments complete with all the ingredients for Eli for Christmas. We finally had a chance to pull them out this week and have some fun. We made elephant toothpaste (lesson: the decomposition process of hydrogen peroxide) and water fireworks (lesson: differences in density).
Science experiments were followed by some nature exploration. It was so nice to be out in the sunshine!
We had some fun experimenting with the ice outside and seeing the beautiful patterns in nature.
This one just can’t help himself if he thinks he might get a laugh. Wrapping up in a blanket by the heater is a favorite in our house and it’s even better when you look silly while doing it.This one finally found a new series that he’s loving.
Her brother has his coat on, she’s in short sleeves and bare feet. Winter, schminter.
Snow days don’t really exist in our world, but when the snow just won’t stop and we’re bundled up inside our house, what’s better than some warm chocolate chip cookies?!
Levi’s chubby little fingers reaching for chocolate chips, Ella, making sure everyone is following the recipe, Eli, hat cocked, taller than ever taking over the oven duties and some oozy-gooey chocolate chip cookies. Yumm!
Animal prints, Africa, snacks… we’re over a year into our homeschooling journey. Some days are beautiful, some days are tough, but the good far outweighs the bad. We learn from each other, grow with each other and are hopefully making some great memories along the way.
