Learning about South America rain forests!


We are currently learning about South America rain forest so we made some terrariums with kits we got for Christmas! Grace got a glow in the dark one with cute little mushroom and bunny. Came with the dirt, water bottle, sand, pebbles, and wheat grass and chia seeds. Kinsley got a troll one with a little poppy house and doll. Hers only came with that so we dug up some dirt and split Gracie’s seeds. Now just waiting for it to grow!

In these two photos are our lettuce we regrow with our romain lettuce bottoms. We just put in water and they regrow! And the barrel cactus I’ve had for four years. Grace and her father dug it up in Texas for Mother’s Day! It had one barrel and now has over ten. Blooms once a year for one day. Last year it was on the day my brother and sister in law got married. It’s flowers are a Bright purple pink color!

Sketchbook

Every now and then I draw in my sketchbook. I started it about 3 years ago and still haven’t finished it so that shows you how much I sketch. I love to do it but never find the time. Today my daughter brought me a bunch of Texas wild flowers that are so pretty. I decided to sketch them. I am no artist, just like to doodle and sketch here and there.

Valentine Countdown!

Wow, it’s already February! That is crazy.  Here is a super cute valentine countdown with bible scriptures.  I did it a little differently than the actual post because I don’t have my printer working yet.  Here is where the idea came from http://catholicicing.com/2012/01/valentine-countdown-chain/  And here is how I did it!

First you need colorful paper cut out 14 of them 8 by 1 1/2, a sharpie or pen, a whole bunch of bible scriptures on love ( which I got from on the link above from http://www.catholicicing.com and a stapler.  That’s it!  Oh and a four-year old to help fold, and, lol!

Valentines Mail Box

                 Here is a super cute easy mail box I made with my 3-year-old daughter.  We just purchased the pink mail box at Target for $1.00.  Then I purchased some cute valentines paper and embellishments at my favorite scrapbook store in Blair Nebraska, A Paige to Remember.  I have been to a ton of scrapbook stores but this one is just great and they have awesome classes too!  Then my daughter and I glued on all the paper, felt hearts and words and flowers. Easy and Grace loves it.  I keep putting in surprises and telling her she has mail when the little flag is up.  She loves it!
