Homeschool Fun

Joshua's favorite subject is "Food."  He loves to cook it, buy it, and of course, eat it.  Here are a couple fun pictures from "school."  We spent a morning at IHOP doing homework while we waited for an employee to finish up training in Overland Park.  The picture on the right is him making homemade meatballs for dinner.  He loves to make dinner each night.  He is going to make a great chef one day!

New Wood Floors

John surprised me with an amazing floor in my kitchen and dining room while we were all gone in AZ. He had our friend Darwin help him install it. He doesn't normally do these kinds of projects, especially without my help, so it was a big deal that he did it. I love him so much! Here are the floors...  

Road Trip to AZ

We had lots of fun over Spring Break in AZ visiting family. We went Letterboxing, swimming, dancing, shopping, and spent lots of time relaxing :)

Science Fair 2014

 Joshua was able to participate in the FCA 2014 Science Fair with his home school group.  He entered the FCA Science Fair in Kindergarten when he went there, and did really well.  He went in with high expectations this year.  He decided to do a taste test study on Kansas City made BBQ sauce. He decided that the sauce with the most sugar content would win as the most popular.  His results proved that.  He tested most of our Maids along with our family.  Here is a picture of his taste testing sign and the score sheet for the fair.   Joshua along with four other home schoolers in our co-op entered the fair. His is on the far left end. A big part of the fair is the presentation to the judges. Joshua knew 2 of the 3 judges very well so that made it a little harder. But he survived, and in the end won a blue First Place ribbon. He was very excited!! Just so you know...Biggs BBQ sauce is the most popular sauce in our study! Now come visit and give them all a try.

Arizona Bound

We are confirmed to go on a Road Trip for Spring Break this year!!  The kids and I along with my 16 year old niece Rylee are driving down to Phoenix, AZ to visit Grandma Sue and Aunt Sheryl.  We are also excited to see cousin Nick and his snake Shelby.  Please pray for safe travels for the 21 hour drive there. We will post pictures when we get back.  We leave early Sat morning.  John will hold down the fort at home and work while we are away...

Judo Warriors

For our Spring Sport, the boys have decided to try out Judo.  We orignally decided to let Jonathan give it a try since he has never been in a sport before, but since Caleb showed some potential so he is trying it to. They look so cute in the Gi's We will have to take pictures soon to share.

Business of the Month

Clay County Savings Bank has chosen our franchise as Business of the Month for March. The kids and I went to the three branches around Kansas City on our snow day today to decorate the tables.  We were excited to get the bank tellers talking about cleaning while we were decorating.  Here are the three tables we came up with...
