We are so thankful for our homeschool co-op!  85 kids this semester, 14 in my Kindergarten class. My fourth year teaching there. I'm teaching Hooray for Habitats, loosely based on Thornton Burgess' animal friends. We all love it.

 Of course Adrian is wearing his new "8 Year Old Farmer" shirt.  Audra had pants all laid out, although she never wears pants, she wanted to be like everyone else.  But, last minute, she went back to a dress, being true to herself. Matching John Deere Backpacks.
 Necessary coffee for mama.
 And Buster Bear starting us off.
 Looking forward to a great semester.


Our sweet friends lit up Audra's world (thank you)! Adrian's jumping in with a weeee bit of dress up too (which rarely happens). I was up until 1am replacing the velcro with a zipper and patching a couple holes so my little pioneer can be styling for her playdate today.  Pantaloons. Petticoat. Dress. Apron. Bonnet. Layers.  And I watch and smile, loving every minute of this stage and the narratives and play that accompany it.

Mama Made

WOW!  We both fit into the bear hug coats! Let's wear them together and be twins! It will be fun, big sister says. Anna-Kate is clearly not into it.
Below is the big two wearing the mama made coats for the first time years ago.  They were definitely into it. I think these coats are probably the most worn mama mades I have ever made. Hopefully Anna-Kate will change her opinion!

A special gift

A blog reader gifted us this little doll cart (thank you!!!). It's gotten quite a bit of use already!  Anna-Kate is a good sport.

County Fair 2018

Another year, another fair. My kids stepping it up each year with their entries (which I didn't take any pics of, oops), their public presentations and their customer service working the food booth.  I couldn't be more proud of my little 4-Hers and all their 4-H friends. And after all that 4-H business, we had a mighty fun time playing at the fair too.


You know, someone else has been bitten by the silkie bug. The fluffiest chicken hugs ever!

Flower Challenge Cont.

We're still sharing these flowers! Now ALL of us are involved, not just Audra and me!  Adrian keeps picking and sharing and even Anna-Kate too!  She likes to say "Flower" and says "Wow" or "Nice" when she sees a good one.  We'll keep sharing as long as the blooms keep coming.

 (And this shirt I made for Adrian years ago.)
