In June for Father’s Day we went to the Kaufman stadium to see the Red Sox vs Royals. Hubby is from New England area so of course we were rooting for the Red Sox. But our youngest wanted the royals to win so she had her royals shirt on and was cheering for them. It was a great game. And the royals ended up winning.
For Kinsley’s kindergarten class we are doing our letter B and watching painted lady caterpillars turn into butterflies this week. It came in her kindergarten My Fathers World curriculum. The kit comes with a voucher for the caterpillars to come in the mail then they eat and eat until the make their chrysalis and then turn into butterflies. The kit is from http://www.insectlore.com My oldest daughter loves insects so I also bought from the site a praying mantis egg sack. It hatches 75-200 nymphs. The girls loved watching both kits! I would recommend these to any children of all ages. Their curriculum is from http://www.mfwbooks.com
This is an amazing book. I loved it. It had me crying, laughing and not wanting it to end. I’ve been reading a lot of books lately but this one will stick with me for a very long time. I recommend it to anyone and everyone. You can purchase the book here or to see the trailer for the movie. http://www.theshackbook.com./
Grace has been saving all her money for a reptile habitat. She wanted a bearded dragon or a chameleon but soon realized they get big fast. Up to 18 inches which would mean we would have to upgrade the habitat. She was going to buy a kit at petsmart on sale for $80 but Grace and her father decided to build one together and not buy the kit because they could make it slim enough so the slid outs can still come in without moving it. Mike also made little heart windows for her ❤️So she finally decided on a leopard gecko🦎Because they get to be around 10 inches. We bought the gecko and all his habitats stuff at petsmart. You need to buy crickets and cricket food also. They eat around 2-3 a night. And all the wood and parts at Home Depot. It is a desert habitat so you need two thermometers one on each end. One has a humidity percentage and heat and the other one is just for heat. You need a heat lamp and we also bought a heated rock. Mike screwed it into where a tv should be in their room but we have never wanted a tv in there so it’s a great spot with all the plug ins. She is so happy ❤️
My brother and sis in law gave us a mushroom kit for the girls to grow for homeschooling. They have been growing super quick and are amazing to watch. They are oyster mushrooms from http://www.rootmushroom.com
