Swim Classes

We are enjoying another 7 weeks of swim classes at the Y! I didn't get as many pictures of Zach and Jord because during their hour of lessons I am with the younger girls and they would rather play and eat lunch in another room.....I make them go in and watch sometimes!

Colonial Days

We took a few Wednesdays and studied colonial life along with the American girl Felicity. We had lots of girlfriends come over to learn with us and watch the Felicity movie!

Pottery Wheel

So....Jord got this for her birthday LAST year and we finally tried it out, but I think that it was dad who enjoyed it the most! I guess I didn't get pictures of the final project, but it was a cute little bowl that Jord painted blue!

No-Bake Cookies

This recipe was in Rachel's Abeka Math book. Zach and Jord both did the same Abeka Math and I never took the time to do the recipe (even though I remember them asking). So, this time around we pulled out the indgredients and made the cookies. Not sure where the "final product" picture went, but they were very good! Oh yeah, and Rachel's measuring skills were terrific!

Abby's 5!

Abby celebrated her 5th Birthday on our last day in Florida! This was Feb.12th....I know, I know how behind I am....I'm trying to catch up! We gave her presents all week long and had cake/ice cream Friday night. Can't believe that my baby is 5! She is still very much the baby though.....gets her way with everyone in the family! She brings us so much joy! We only celebrated 1/2 of her birthday because we are celebrating the other 1/2 in the summer with everyone else's birthdays.....last year was tough for her so this year she will be included in the celebrations!
