The Miami Dade County Fair

It's that time of year again! Time for the fair! We took the kids last week and had a blast eating the yummy food, seeing the farm animals, and enjoying watching the rides.  Here's some pics from our fun night!

Jadyn all ready to check out this year's fair. 
Eating some yummy hot dogs and hamburgers.
Job enjoyed his hot dog.
The petting zoo is always a hit. Mj touched a llama.
Job loved the cows!
Petting a 2 day old baby chick.
We let the kids play this fun game.  Kind of like Bingo.
Mj won! And used his coupon for a snorkel.
And my sinful indulgence of the night. - Deep fried Snickers. AMAZING!!!!!! I don't want to know how many calories were in that.  Don't worry, I did my zumba to work that baby off! LOL


18 months

On March 11, this cutie patootie turned 18 months old! A year and a half already! Job wants to be just like his older siblings, which makes me kind of sad.  He doesn't want to be the baby. He is talking so much and is into everything daring and adventurous. He wears me out, but I wouldn't have it any other way! Love you Jobie! So thankful God blessed us with you!

Our Past 2 Weeks in Review

I haven't posted in a while what we've been doing.  It feels like life has gotten very busy.  Here's what we've done the past two weeks.

MJ-5th Grade
English: Mj wrote a research paper on Neil Armstrong.  He learned about making an outline, writing notecards, and writing a bibliography page.
Math: Mj has been multiplying and dividing decimals.
Science: Mj has been learning about sound waves and light waves.
Doing an experiment on lights in fog.
History: Mj has been enjoying his study on WWII.
Mj made an epic Lego House during his quiet time.
Jadyn - Kindergarten
Beginnings: Jadyn has been learning about the seasons. I can tell that she's been living in Miami because she thinks winter only happens in Pennsylvania since it doesn't snow here.  I tried to explain that it is winter here even though it's still hot and we go to the beach! LOL My poor Miami children!
Phonics: Jadyn has been doing an awesome job as we introduced long vowel sounds the past two weeks!
Writing her new word families in her calendar notebook.
Math: Jadyn has been counting by 5s, learning about nickels, and learning about 3-D shapes.  She's been a busy girl!
Counting by 5s using unifix cubes.
Gabe - Totschool
Gabe learned about the letter "S".  He loved all the fun coloring pages we did.
S, of course, is for Spiderman.
S is also for squid. And apparently orange was the color of the week. LOL

Making playdough sandwiches.
Geometric shape puzzles.
Job - Teeny Tot School

I've been trying to keep this 18 month ball of energy entertained while I do school with the older two.

Unifix cubes in an ice tray was great fun!
Job loves the shape stacker.
Sensory play with rocks.
Pom poms in an ice tray was pretty fun, too.
Playdough was a blast!!!
Extra Fun:
Construction workers were putting up electric poles in our backyard.  The kids brought out the construction set and played and watched.

Field Trip to the zoo.
The kids loved the Lego exhibit 

Tiger puzzle
Learning about all the Amazon fish.

Awana Games 2014

On Saturday Jadyn and MJ participated in the Awana games.  It was Jadyn's first year to participate and she was so excited and very nervous!  They all did great.  Jadyn's Sparks games were first.

She grabbed that bean bag and ran as fast as she could.
The sparks train.
Our Sparks team won 1st place!
Jadyn was excited about her 1st place ribbon and patch.
Mj participated in the TNT boys competition.
The tug-of-war was intense!
He knocked the pin down and won points for his team!
The TNT boys won 1st place and the TNT girls won 2nd place.
Mj was proud of his 1st place medal!

The kids had so much fun! I'm so thankful for the fun they can have and all the verses they have memorized and have seen them use in their lives!

Messiah Mystery

I'm so excited to be doing the Messiah Mystery with the kids through the Lent season this year.  I heard about it on our cruise we went on a couple of weeks ago.  I love getting the kids excited about Resurrection Sunday. We read our first session yesterday on Ash Wednesday.  The kids loved finding the clue with their magnifying glass and writing down their clues in their notebooks.  Gabe put up the Day 40 strip of paper on our poster and they can't wait to figure out what the picture is.
Looking forward to Resurrection Sunday!!!
