 joey LOVES it
 then i get jpey working on some "school"=anything to keep her busy for at least 30 mins....while i go back to one on one with ellie

school pt 2

 last night i asked joey to out away her dinosaurs.  i found this!!!!  way too cute!!!

i put joey to bed and found this....more skip bo in the front room!
 this afternoon i declared to the kids " i HAVE to get outside"  so we put the books away and went out side!
 nate showed us his hill
 we watched and froze. it was STUPID cold
 there he goes!
 we came home and finished school AND this bad boy!  just in time for book club on monday!
 i finished nates school...this is his book load,  he's at the spot that i wanted him to be at.  hes working at the level that i think is good for him.  he mostly works independently.  i still teach him one on one- spelling, science, math and some language arts 
 i set up joeys school for next wk
 then we had a play date.  i had the kids paint from a game i made up. they LOVED it
 and it kept them busy while i made them all food! ha



 we got our YUM box last night.  it was from GERMANY!!!!!! and im annoyed to say, it was by far the BEST box we've had!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


we always open the box and choose what we think would be our fav before we open it. i chose this lemon waffle thing, chris is showing it
 SO excited!
 this wafer!

SO good. BUT....not so great after i tried other foods...
 cutting up the food
 nate trying this "grapefruit" candy. it was GOOD!
 chris showing us his fav
 but this?!?!??!

i shared it
then ATE THE WHOLE bag.  the BEST snack ive EVER had   so GOOD!!!!
the german yums was by far, the. BEST box yet.  we ate all of it, and LOVED it. hahaha and chris had such great flash backs of his childhood....hahaha and the next time he goes to germany im sending him with a list of the foods i want him to bring home!  2 comments
