The Red Dragon

Week #5 of 52- January 30th A couple days ago, it was Jonah and his wrecking ball.  Today, it is Caleb and his Red Dragon!  Caleb received a set of dragons to build for Christmas and wasn’t so sure e could put it together.  Well he did, with only a little help from his mom and big brother Sumner.  He was absolutely thrilled with the finished product!  It is fun to see him doing more and more intense things on his own but that just means he is growing up.  🙁 Ahhhh, this one! He could not get this piece on and was showing some of  his frustration. Sumner showing him where the...

The Wrecking Ball

Week #4 of 52- January 28th Jonah received a Wrecking Ball kit for Christmas and has been anxious to put it all together.  It took a few days, as they had to wait for different  steps and glue to dry, but Jonah and Dad finished it this evening.  It didn’t take long for the boys to put it to use! Trying to figure out which type of knot to tie for the final step… the boys are anxious.  Can you tell? I couldn’t pass up this one.  It’s hard being the littlest.  Too cute. Just looking at the directions tells you why this thing took 3 days to put together! The...

Caleb is Behind the Wheel!

Week #4 of 52 A dead/broken battery has kept the Power Wheel Hummer sitting idle for far too long.  After hunting down a replacement part that is no longer being made, Adam had it up and running this weekend.  Caleb was absolutely thrilled!  He was outside every chance he got, driving it around.  On Sunday morning, as we were getting ready to leave for church, I told the boys to head to the car.  Caleb jokingly went to the side door (his hummer was sitting just outside), and said, “I’ll drive!”   Oh my, we are SO not ready for that.   And just for fun… the...

A Science Field Trip… Old School Style

Week #4 of 52 The boys and I signed up for a Science field trip through our co-op several months ago, not really knowing what to expect.  I knew that it was a presentation about the Human Body and thought it would fit in perfectly with our study of human anatomy and physiology this year.  The performance was being put on by a man named Slim Goodbody.  That was all we knew.  As soon as the show started and he came out, I knew the boys were going to have some fun.  The whole presentation was energetic and never had a dull moment.  Afterward, the boys had a chance to get their photo taken...

Back Home

Week #3 of 52 We arrived back home on Saturday, January 12th, after spending 3 weeks in StL.  We had a good and long visit but it is always good to be home.  Adam and I joked about how we didn’t hear much from the boys those first few days because they were only interested in their toys.  They spent a good part of the week building with all of their new lego gear.  I had to grab some photos of their Lego City creation… their minds were running wild!  You gotta love their creativity! Their city included everything from streets and stores to oceans and sharks. Speaking of...
