Last Saturday we made homemade pizza. John was gone with Adam up at one of the colleges he has been accepted to so I was home with the rest of the kids. We also had Taylar and Rachel's friend Brett over.
I came up with the idea to precook the pizza crust just a little so it wouldn't be so flimsy. This worked out great!
Look at Rachel the dancing sweeper listening to her Ipod. :)
Alex kept rubbing his left eye and was complaining of pain so I took him to the Optometrist today for a full exam. Everything checked out fine and he doesn't need glasses, but if you tell him these are not glasses you'll burst his bubble. After they dilated his eyes, they gave him these to wear and now he wants to take them for show and tell tomorrow!
Our homeschool charter requires the kids to do some sort of visual or performing arts, so I have started doing art projects with them. The first try at this assignment many of the kids were arguing how it was too hard. "Mom, can't I take and F?" I insisted that they follow the directions and redo it till they got the concept of this project being an illusion. In the end, I actually think the kids were pleased with their finished project. I know I am.
The other day after teaching a few of the kids about pollination, we went for a walk. As we admired the different front yards we passed a home with a hummingbird decoration in the tree. Anastasia pointed it out as she remembered that it was called a "hummy" bird. Close enough and the highlight of my walk!
Caleb got a job as a busboy! He is so excited. Way to go!
