We visited the Wings over Denver Air and Space Museum today. My sweet friend told me she and her boys would be doing this and asked us to join, so we did a fun lesson on aviation. Learning of Leonardo da Vinci, The Wright Brothers, and Amelia Earhart.(Shailo loved Chase’s drawing of Amelia Earhart so much… Continue reading Wings over Denver
(This is a long post today – I’ve made it easy to skim, so if you want the gist, just read the words in bold italics.) It’s true! We are on the move again, and this time, to ALASKA. (artwork by Katie Daisy) Many have asked what happened, why are we moving AGAIN, didn’t we… Continue reading Moving on.
Today was Chase’s last day of school at his current school. This boy has grown so much as a student at the Lighthouse Homeschool Co-op we have been a part of for a year and a half. He learned to read and spell and how to tell time (and more) in that short time. Beyond… Continue reading Last Day of LHC.
My boys have a Wild Kratt obsession. And I have got to say, this is one that I love! Have you seen Wild Kratts? It’s a PBS kids show that comes from a show my siblings and I watched as kids called Zoboomafoo. The Kratt Brothers were far younger (obviously) in it, but my boys… Continue reading Wild Kratts + their Baby Panda
In April, we welcomed our first furry pets to the family. Bunnies, Elsa and Anna, named by Frozen-lover Chase.We visited a local pet store nearby “just for fun” and then fell in love with these two 8 week old bunnies. Learned they were sisters so we couldn’t take just ONE of course. ;) We waited… Continue reading Kid’s First Furry Pet (Saying Goodbye)
This year we visited Colon Orchard – an apple Farm. Unfortunately the orchard had a terrible freeze which killed their apple trees so we picked pumpkins and ran through a corn maze instead :) Everly 1.5, Chase 6, Shailo almost 4. One day we will look back and say “Remember that one day when we… Continue reading Apple Orchard + Pumpkin Patch
Chase started his first day of First Grade at the Lighthouse Homeschool Co-op September 13, 2015. And Shailo started Preschool at Little Lights Preschool on September 28th, 2015. How cute is his smile? haha! Love this boy! Chase was excited for his little brother to start! It was pretty stinkin’ cute!
“Dear Tooth Fairy, My mom would like to keep my tooth. Love, Chase” September 29th, 2015 Chaseyboy lost his first tooth. The next morning he lost another! He was making a “paper costume”and decided to use his teeth to tear heavy duty duct tape from the roll. It snagged on his teeth and he came running… Continue reading Dear Tooth Fairy…
When we moved into our cute, little “Davis Haven”, I didn’t touch the yard (besides occasionally mowing). The previous owners had seven large dogs. I kid you not. And the yard was living proof. Oh and also, *ahem*, dead proof too. But that’s another story, which I do not want to retell. Ha! I wish I had… Continue reading Davis Haven: Our Front Yard!
Chase turned 6 this year! SIX. It’s just not possible! I think I’ll say this every single year. Yep, can’t help myself. Chaseyboy LOVES ninjas… hence his Ninkago themed party (which he chose). Anyways, here are photos from his Ninjago birthday party along with party details if you are looking for some! I bought large… Continue reading Chase’s Ninjago Birthday Party
