Early Astronomers

John is learning about Early Astronomers in Science. He has learning about several of them over the last few weeks and he put together a presentation board to show his work and what he's learned. He is so proud of it. He did it with no help from me.

Oceans Place mat

Since we're doing a unit study on Oceans we made a placemat for my youngest. He has a coral reef coloring book. So, we took one of his pictures he colored, which has info about the fish below it, cut it out and just laminated it. Quick and easy. He loves it!

Scrapbooking & Crafts

A friend got me into scrapbooking recently. I'm still learning a lot. I have been playing around with some different crafty things as well. I made tags for my scrapbooking pages out of pictures. I think they came out amazing!

My oldest son loves his cat.

My youngest got a monkey pillow pet for his birthday. He loves that thing.

I also made some regular tags for my scrapbooking pages.

I even made a Do Not Disturb sign.

I was trying out a new layout and came up with this. I call it my Pride & Joy page.

This is a craft cone. I made it so I could surround myself with beautiful things. And it holds some of my tags.
