Day 87

Something new....
Cody has been asking for a while to try rollerblades, so today was the day.  
It really wasn't much different for him, but he felt like a bigger kid, rollerblading with his buddies.

Day 86

Rainy day....
and I finally let them play the Wii!  
We don't let them play it very often as it can bring out some bad attitudes.  After a good school day and them running around outside as long as the weather allowed, Wii it was.

Day 81

Head is swimming...
We are switching our charter school for the next school year, giving me more control over the curriculum and making funds available for other enrichment activities. 
My head is swimming as I'm going through the 50 lb packet of papers.  
(okay, so that's a bit of an exaggeration, but it's a good 5 lbs at least!)

Day 75

Today was rainy and cold, we had a short school day and boredom was setting in.  Tyler's solution was to enjoy a bath for about an hour this afternoon.  Sounds good to me!

Day 74

We have a wood pecker hanging out in our front trees, the boys really enjoyed watching him work this morning.  He was hard to catch a picture of, but you can see his red head with black and white body on the tree trunk.

Day 73

Bank tour...
We went on a bank tour today with our homeschooling group.  The kids were all very interested to see how it all worked.  Here they are learning about the coin machine and how it sorts and bags the coins.  They were able to see what the tellers do, and how they have machines that disperse money.  Then they went back into the vault, seeing a stack of 2000 one-dollar bills, they thought that was awesome.  
They were given a goody bag with fun pencils and stickers then received a shiny, new $1 coin.  
Awesome field trip!

New journals
The boys have sparkling new journals to help boost their writing skills a bit.  Both boys are working hard to improve, this made it a bit more exciting.

Day 71

Gymnastics toe...
Tyler decided he wanted his toe painted again for gymnastics, so he could remember which is his lead foot.  Today's choice: electric blue with green sparkles.

Day 70

I'ma cut you...
and that's what I did.  
Today's project was to cut all the remaining blocks of the month sew that I can work on putting them together quicker.  Then there's the task of all the filler pieces to make it into an actual quilt.  Baby steps...

We upgraded our tv/internet today.  Along with moving the living room around slightly.  
Yay for fast internet that isn't thinking about every move and a crap-ton of new channels to enjoy for 6 months until our promo price ends and we'll jump down a level or 3.

A 35 minute tour....
We ent on a tour of the new Whole Foods in Folsom with our Homeschooling group today.  It was really fun to have a guided walk around the store.  Here she is letting us sample fresh ground peanut and chocolate chip butter.  YUM!

Day 65

The boys were given a Groupon for Christmas for a month of karate.  Today was their first class and they both seamed to have a good time.

Day 63

Son of a.....

I've been meaning to fix the boys' floor pillows for months now and finally pulled them out yesterday.  I am sewing a new liner out of old heavy bed sheets because the quilted tops keep tearing and letting the foam beads out.  
So I sewed up the first insert and went to transfer the beads from old to new and dropped the old, still full bag.  We will have foam beads around the house for months.

Final Game...
Cody's last basketball game for the season was today.  His team played well and squeaked out a final win 14-12.  He received a cool new medal to add to his collection and a certificate.

Day 61

Watching the live feed...
Keith is in Bakersfield this weekend for the March Meet with the Top Fuel dragster he crews for and has a live feed of the race all weekend.  We spent the last hour of our school day flipping between the race and our science studies waiting for Mike's car to run.  

Fingers crossed they fix the car and get in the show tomorrow.

Day 60

Printed pictures...
It's bad when this is a major accomplishment for the day.  Anyway...
The pictures came in the mail today for my new frames that will sit on the opening between the kitchen and family room.  Once I get some other things put away, they will be spread out a bit.
