Church Easter Picture 2010

Every year as we go into church for Easter they snap a family picture. Was pretty happy to get everyone looking and smiling!

Baby Chicks!


On Fridays we attend a home school co-op and are able to take some fun classes. Not in place of what I teach, just as extra fun. The kids take things such as art where Makenna has been able to really do well at her sketching. Sawyer's favorite this year is Robotics where they use computers and lego's together, what could be better! Malaine enjoys anything that her cousin Jaylyn is in, I think her favorite is The Magic School bus. Even Sage & Mavery get to take a few things. This year for the first time I decided I would teach a class. You can basically choose anything you want to teach on, so I thought it would be fun to do a class based on the American Girl dolls. We have had so much fun! Sometime I will share all the excitement we have had in there, but I came across these pictures today and wanted to share. Each week we cover a different girl, and on the week we learned about Kirsten, my co-teacher and dear friend thought it would be great fun to bring in baby chicks! So off to Rural King we went (local farm store) and purchased our minimum of 25 baby chicks. I took just a handful home for the night, and my kids sure enjoyed them! They are pretty cute I must admit, though I am in no hurry to raise chickens for sure!

Easter 2010

I know, I hear ya, I am a blogging loser. I have a whole list of excuses, but they are lame even to me. I really do want to catch up, hopefully I will very soon. But I wanted to at least share my Easter cuties from today along with some quotes from the kids.
On Saturday night before bed we did the resurrection eggs as a family. As Mark was asking what came out of Jesus when they pierced his side Malaine says " I think his appendix came out!"
When asked where Jesus prayed, Malaine said " OH wasn't it in the forest?!"
Sage, is able to tell the entire story in her Sagey way. "And then they nailed Jesus on the cross, and they stuck him in a cave and put a HUGE stone in front of it but after 3 days he rose again and rolled that stone away and now we get to go to heaven! " (all said in one breath) Last was so sweet from Mavery. When we opened the nails, in the shape of a cross, she grabbed it and jumped up and said, "Jesus died for ALL OF US on the cross, so we can go to heaven!" If you know Mavery, you know she is very animated and watching her tell this was so precious. To think of this child just coming home a year ago, and already getting that Jesus died for us, it melts my heart. Well that is till today Mavery asks my dad "Where is your daddy?" My dad replied that his dad died. Mavery: Oh, did he die on the cross too?! ;-)
