Math Facts
Reading - BJU Press Grade 1
Loving Lego's these days, still lots of construction going on around here.  

Resources we used:

Auidobooks.  Love them.  Especially when purchased with an iTunes gift card we received for Christmas.

Outside it continues to snow...

Things They Said:

Marney:  "When does it end with you Mom?"  Said while discussing our crazy 2010, and the possibility of me going back to work.  I know, I know!  

"I will direct your steps Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding." Proverbs 3:5-6

Knitting projects:

Finally finished the socks I have been working on for 2 years.  They even fit.
Started on a second pair using a different pattern, 1 down, 1 to go.  

The girls have been busy knitting also.  They both made cute beret's using their knitting loom.  Great tool for beginners!  Madeline completed a very cute scarf, and Marney is working on making some cute knitted balls.

We had a great week.  No doctors appointments, yay!  Well apparently we had one for Wednesday (Ben's upper GI, and swallow study) but nobody bothered to call and tell us.  Only after I called on Thursday to check on scheduling, did I learn of the appointment.  So reschedule we will.

Have a great weekend!


  1. Your knitting projects turned out great, I love the yarn for the new sock. Madeline's scarf turned out really cute! Thanks for linking up.

  2. Very productive week. Don't you just love this time of year? Keeping life simple. Your knitting projects are great. My Sally started chrocheting a pair of sock a couple of months ago and then stopped. I need to encourage her. Ben is just too darn cute!!!
