We took a field trip with Brenden's preschool class to the pumpkin patch this past week. It started off a little cold but turned out to be a beautiful day. Much needed since all the rain we have had lately. On the way back we saw the down side to all the rain 2 tractors one pulling the other for unknown reasons but they were so caked in mud and leaving a trail behind them so thick I almost needed 4 wheel drive down the highway!

Both boys started at about 2 playing on the computer. Brenden also loved a PS2 thanks to his daddy and cousin Noah who were anxious for him to hurry and learn I am sure. He has gotten so good at all of these electronic games he is now beating his daddy! He loves to play his cousins' DS games and the Wii. He is going to be so far ahead of me in the computer department before I know it. Course it won't take much! It wouldn't be fair to my little man if he didn't get to play on the same things his big bro plays on. Thankfully I was already prepared with games for him! I am thinking we are going to have 2 computers before we know it!

Took a picture the other day of his favorite thing to do in math. He loves the pattern blocks.
We are doing Saxon K math and he loves math time. We use a lot of hands on things to count and make patterns. We have got a lot more stuff to do and I can't wait. I don't remember using these things in school but that has been a long time ago. I will try to post more school pics. He loves showing off his work.

We went to the grocery store Friday night and hubby forgot to put down the door when we were finished unloading. He locked it but didn't shut the door.:o) The next morning we found this site. We were glad it didn't rain and we live in a safe town. So the only intruder on our open vehicle all night was a few bugs I am sure and the kitty.

If I am going to talk about old people trying to act young I can't leave this out. Hubby is a lot braver than I am. Our nephew has a ripstick and of course Barry has to try this new thing out. He is getting pretty good at this thing and is now requesting one for Christmas. I thought I only had 2 kids. Guess I can't leave the big one out. I imagine I will spend the next few years in the ER with ALL of the boys and all of the stitches and broken limbs to come.
Barry's grandmother was here for a visit along with our niece from North Carolina. Had a little fun one night on the trampoline. His grandmother a 72 yr old woman got up there and jumped. I was a little on the nervous side that we would end up in the ER. Then Andra my mother in law jumped and took a fall. My father in law also took a turn. The big kids and little kids had a blast. Pretty funny watching old people try to be young. Can't talk too much that trampoline wears me out! Guess I am getting old.:o)
This summer we are still doing school work. Brenden doesn't mind though because it is mommy time and at his age everything is fun. We were on the letter e and since that is the hardest letter he has had to write so far I wanted to show him why it is so important for him to learn how. He has 2 in his name. If he wants to write his name he has to learn the letter e. I really like how Abeka uses dots for the starting point of a letter. That is extremely helpful. I am not sure that I would have thought of that one. If you look at his e's you can see his dots.

The boys don't care what is going on in our world. They just wanna have fun. The kitchen may need cleaning from supper dishes, the floors may be missing, dust from a saw may be all over the place, laundry may be piled sky high, but these boys just want time with mommy and daddy to have fun.
We spent the fourth Saturday in a row working on the house. I really cannot believe how much we have gotten done in such a short time. My dad has been a tremendous help and everything looks awesome. My couch should be here today and I will post pics of the finished living room. Well almost finished. Still have to build the cabinet/desk that is going beside the fireplace.
