Did find some things that are a little wacky about us

This is what happens when you send your kids to take the laundry off of the line. They get a little creative. Her entire head is full of clothes pins.

Do you think this might be the new style this coming fall???

This day my oldest decided to see how many grapes she could shove into her mouth. Doesn't she look like a chipmunk or squirrel?

Here she is just being plan old goofy. How do you like the hair?

This one is our jokester of the family. Can you tell she loves to make funny faces

I was feeling kind of awful about how much fun we have around here. I thought that we were pretty lame until I started to download some of my pictures so we could go on vacation this week and then I saw all of these funny snapshots. So I had to share. I don't feel as bad, my kids do look like they are having some fun.

BFS #104 - Never Leave Home Without It!

Memory Verse: Matthew 28: 20 - Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the world. Amen.

Assignment: In the memory verse Jesus tells us that He will never leave us, not even at the end of the world. He assures us in this verse that He will be with us and that means through everything we go through in life. I thought it would be interesting to write about the things we would never leave home without. For some it might be baby needs, others it might be a gym bag and bottle of water, and for some it might be your Bible and a notepad or small journal, maybe even your son or daughters favorite blankie! I’d like for you to write about something that you would never leave home without.

Let's see, what don't I leave home without. There are a few things. I do not leave home wihtout my purse. When I forget that it always seems like there was something very important in there. Like for instance that will be the time that my van is totally without gas. (This has happened to me.)

This object is in my purse but it is important. I go to the library I lot and if I don't have my library card they will not let me check out a book. Which they all know me by name and some of them even know where I live but if I forget my wallet which has my library card and my license in it they will not let me check out a book. So this is very important.

Other than that that is all I really try to make sure I have. Now my kids on the other hand they pretty much bring our entire house with them whenever we leave. I am always trying to stop them from bringing stuff with us. They like to be prepared when we are going somewhere. They will bring their dolls, dolls clothing, usually some type of bag that this stuff goes in. Once in a while my oldest brings a book to read. They will take all of this to run into town for 10 minutes. So it tends to be a problem.

When it travel with my dh he is a little more prepared than I am. He always makes sure we have drinks for our trip and some type of snack to eat. I try to do this but it is not something I always make sure I have with me.

Have a great week everyone and God Bless.

This is WACKY WEEK here at Blogger Friend School! Everything is wacky fun! This week YOU, the student, get to share something of your choice that is little “Wacky”!!!
Have you done something crazy in your homeschool? Do you fingerpaint with your toes? Do you let your children do your hair? Do you wear your pajamas during homeschool? Oh, the list is endless, but it’s up to you and how much fun you want to have.
To make it even “wackier” (not sure if it’s really a word, but hey, we don’t check spelling this week at BFS either!!!…..try and type some or all of your post sdrawkcab. (backwards!)
!keew gnixaler dna nuf a siht ekaM
(…and forwards…Make this a fun and relaxing week!)

At this moment I feel as if I am a failure as a mom. I have been racking my brain since Tuesday when I read the assignment for this week. This sounds so dumb, but I am a hunter and yesterday I was in my tree stand trying to think of something we do that is fun. Now this should come easy, but it hasn't for me. I can't think of anything. There are days that my daughter has done her schoolwork in her pajamas only due to the fact that I was to lazy to tell her to go and get dressed or got tired of asking. We do laugh but there isn't something specific that we do that is wacky. Somedays we do chase each other around the house and play monsters. AT one time we were playing hide and go seek at night, that was fun.

I always tend to be goofy around other people but not my kids. Well I can see this is an area that God and I need to work on. Need not to be so serious and worried about everything that needs to be accomplished and spend some time just being wacky.
