Happy Birthday, Cason!

Cason Douglas ~ 10-04-2001 ... 9-years-old Today!

Let's celebrate...

Me & my boy...

Lego shirt! It says, "Square Is Cool!"

Lego book!
A new Wii game! I think this was his favorite!
Homemade Lego/Mario Cake!

Happy Birthday to the baby boy that brought joy, laughter, & healing to our home! After the loss of our 2nd child, Abby, God graciously brought us this sweet boy!
Our 'treasure from darkness'...
I will give you the treasures from darkness,
riches stored in secret places,
so that you may know that I am the LORD,
the God of Israel, who summons you by name. Isaiah 45:3

He is a wonderful brother, son, grandson, and friend. His favorite thing to do is play with Legos! He also likes to play wii & read! He is in 3rd grade @ POOL School and he is extremely bright. His favorite subjects are science and math. Most importantly he is kind-hearted and he loves Jesus! Happy Birthday to my one and only boy! I enJOY having a 'front row' seat in your life. Love, Mommy

We've Got the Whole our tummies!

What's the best way to learn? Make it fun! The first 2 weeks of Exploring Countries & Cultures {MFW}, is basically an overview/introduction to the world and all we will be studying this year. Today we had some fun and made a 'world cake' to celebrate all we have learned so far...a yummy way to review! I love to cook with the many good lessons!

Like how to carefully crack an egg...

Take turns...

Encourage one another...

Be patient...

And balance...

First,we made a large sheet cake.

Put blue frosting on it.

Cut out our continents [made with marshmallow fondant],

and placed them on the cake. Here's Chloe, putting Antarctica in place.

The finished product! Not perfect, but not too bad!

Good enough to EAT & share with our neighborhood friends!

Who all said, "Is this what y'all get to do every day?"

No, but we do like to have fun!
We all learn best when the lessons are interesting! Here are some more pics from our first few weeks of school. The weather has been so nice, so we like to play in the Tee Pee.

Map work...
