End of May activities

We have been very busy recently.  The weather has been great for getting outside, exploring and having fun.  Of course blogging gets set aside most days for office work, lesson planing, and being out with the boys.

The boys have been using scraps of wood left over from our shed project to build their own wild creations.  TJ made a garage, bench and bike jump.  Not sure what MJ's things are.  They also used the wood to make dams while playing with the hose.

TJ participated in his very first literature fair.  He created a folder project on the book "Curious George" then shared with with a group of homeschooler s.  He was very well spoken and learned a lot!

Mommy has a also had a little time to be crafty.  I have decided to close down my online crafting business to focus on our family, homeschooling and running the office for our electrical/fire protection company.  I was able to manage a few last projects.  I made myself a shirt, a fully reversible doll carrier, and a large quilt made of baby receiving blanket.

TJ's been getting more brave and adventurous.  He is usually on wheels of some sort.  His bike, scooter and skateboard are all getting lots of use.  MJ always has some Lego creation in his hands, or bed.  He is getting more confident on his bicycle too.

 We were so excited to attend a really fun event call "Touch-a-truck".  The fair ground was litterally covered in dozens of different trucks, tractors, etc.  Children got to climb inside and ask questions.  My boys had huge smiles as they tried out every truck they could find.

Hurray we have a shed!!!  I know it needs a door, but finally all our toys and gardening equipment is off the lawn and into this lovely shed that daddy built.  The boys had fun "helping" too.

Stay tuned as we start our adventure with the alphabet.  Over the next the next three months we will be learning, drawing, writing, creating and exploring each letter of the alphabet.
