The best part of homeschooling????

Kids in traditional schools love snow days because they get to play hookey, right? (Well, maybe not this year, as from what I gather on FB all of my East Coast friends are totally OVER snow days). BUT, as a homeschool family, we play hookey on SUNdays! Not Sunday, as in church day, but SUNday as in "OMGoodness, we live in the Pacific Northwest and its Feb and its acutally sunny outside!!" We got our lessons done quickly and headed to the park! Its a picture heavy post because I'm having way too much fun with my new camera!

This boy has loved to swing since the day he was born. He cried when we finally took his baby swing out to the garage. When I found him standing up in it, looking over the back of the swing, I knew it was time. He still loves to swing, though.

That's right, boys. Run, run like the wind. Run now, so you'll STOP doing it in my house!!

REAAAAAACCCCHH!!! Carte tried to jump and grab the monky bars at least five times. Each time he thought he was "so close." Finally Jason lifted him up. It was getting sort of pathetic to watch.

Different monky bars, same idea........REEEAAAAACCCHHH!!!!

Hang on buddy! Hang on!!!

Look at those faces! How could we stay inside at the table doing math problems and writing spelling words?

Bee Blocks

November's Block

January's Block.

Phew....I am finally caught up with my blocks for the Stash Busting Bee. I still have Feb's to make, but I have until the end of the month. I have already decided on what block to make, so the hard part's done : )

In other news, Ben made this sewing machine for me out of legos. Isn't it cute? He actually made it for me last month. One the day my camera died. And I've kept it safe until I got my new camera because I loved it so much and wanted to share it with you here on my blog.

Happy Valentine's everyone!

I got a new camera!!!

I'm so excited! I've been sewing, and crafting, and homeschooling, and thrifting, and...and...and...!!!

And now I can show you pictures of all of it! Yay me!

I'm still here, but maintaining a craft blog without a camera is really really hard!! Lately I haven't done much sewing or knitting, but today I finally cut into my vintage sheet stash. I'm in the Rosey Little Things vintage sheet FQ swap. I cant' wait to see what goodies I get! And I haven't forgotten about the vintage sheet quilt a long. I'm just waiting to see what I get in the exchange and waiting for a new camera!!! Ugh!!
