Field Trip!!!

       Besides a boring week of book work we took a trip to the museum and learned about an old fashioned Christmas! I really like this museum. They always dress in period costumes and really talk and engage the kids. 

       This man here has been at the museum every time we have went and Fox loves his talks with him. It is shocking that even Damian listens. He works with kids on an amazing level! He shares stories asks questions and it is all very fun not like a quiz or anything.

Peek At Our Week 12

        We are still plugging away with book work. The kids and I are so ready for a vacation! 

        Besides books we also made some chocolate chip cookies this week from a mix the elf had brought to us. The kids have been decorating for Christmas, watching movies and being as lazy as possible! I suppose that is the way it is suppose to be before a break!

       That pretty much sums up this week. Kids are ready for Christmas and lazier days!

Peek At Our Week 10

This week Fox made brain sludge! It was an experiment in one of his books for Guest Hollow Chemistry and it was gross and neat at the same time. He added some milk to vinegar and it did actually create little blobs that look like brain matter. It was pretty neat to see.

Field Trip!!!

        Tonight was The Starry Night at the Gainesville Museum and like every year we had a ton of fun! Skyler looks forward to this every year. The year it is a night all about the stars! This year we had a special little friend with us too so that was new. Almost as soon as we got to the museum three of my kiddos went off in their own directions. They are my let's rush and see everything kind of kids while Skyler is a take my time and explore every single detail kid!

Peek At Our Week 9

        What a week! It started off decent enough. Last week everyone was sick and I had hopes this week it was getting better, sadly it did not. We even ended up in the hospital with the boy child. Things happen, you just got to keep moving. You know they say you make plans and God laughs and laughs. That has been pep talk lately. Skyler finally dug into some of her CSI kits! She looked so professional! I need to find her a white lab coat!

        She is so cute surrounded by all her doo dads!

Our Review Of Kidzaw Master Kitz The Starry Night

   If you have a little artist in your house then you must check out this amazing art kit! We were so excited to try Master Kitz The Starry Night by I had never even heard of this company before given the chance to do a review from them. I am so thrilled to know about them now though! We are big Vincent van Gogh fans in this house and Starry Night is one of our absolute favorites! As soon as we opened Master Kitz The Starry Night I knew we had a great project pack! Skyler couldn't wait to do it.

Field Trip!!!!!

        Since we are studying Medieval Times this school year, I was thrilled to learn of a museum not too far away! The Medieval Torture Museum! I knew it would be a fun day! The kids adore Medieval and field trips so win win!! I really wasn't prepared for the amount of torture though! I never dreamt there were that many ways to torment a person. I will warn you the pictures are pretty graphic. This stuff don't phase my kids but it may phase you! Skyler was also amazed at all the things they did to so called "witches". That was almost a field trip in a field trip for her! We posted all of that stuff on her Magic School Blog.

        Group pictures are becoming so rare!

Field Trip!!! And An Art Class

        We had so much fun visiting the Gateway Art Gallery this weekend and Skyler had a blast taking the kids art class. It was neat seeing all the art by local artists. I told Skyler one day her art will hang in a gallery! The best part was learning these classes are once a month so she will for sure be wanting to join the others as well.

Peek At Our Week 5 And 6

       When witches go riding and black cats are seen, the moon laughs and whispers, tis near Halloween!!!!! Halloween has landed here the past two weeks that is for sure! In between decorating we of course did some school too! We always have fun setting up everything for Halloween. This year Skyler was big into helping. Usually she sits back and watches but she took charge of a few projects this year! First up was the living room. 

       Chucky just insists the new baby be by him all the time! 

       sadly we had to put the new member of the family in a cage, she just hasn't grasped that we don't eat the family pets yet!

       Rhyli just adores Little Chucky!
