This was one of my favorite parks growing up as a kid as it was right down the street from my house!

Peyton had a wonderful dedication service as well as sadly our good bye with our church as this was our last Sunday there before the big move to Kansas :(
I am truly going to miss the wonderful people at this church!

Once again I've gotten side tracked from keeping up with my blog! Something I really missed taking out some time to just sit and relax and take a few moments to go over the day!
Time has really flown by! It seems like we just got our orders the other day and finding out that we were a few months from leaving and now the time has come! Next week the movers come to pack us up and a few days later we will be arriving in Leavonworth, KS!
It's a bitter sweet moment right now! After spending 5yrs in Fort Hood, TX I'm very sad to leave what has become home! But I'm also anxious for new places, new beginnings, new sites to see, new experiences with the family!
It's of course spring break here and my goal was to hopefully work over spring break since we didn't have anything going on but that turned into having lots going on and getting nothing done yet! It doesn't seem to work very well when there are so many kids in the neighborhood letting them know it's "spring break" lol And I am all for taking the breaks and normally go on a normal school schedule just so they can play with their friends but with the move coming up I figured it'd be nice to focus this week lol

I thought I would share a few pictures of some art work we have done over the last few weeks!

An Owl Project that my 1st grader did out of paper and then a bird feeder he made out of a milk jug!

There's also a fun kite snack I made for my preschooler during the week she was learning about the letter K!

Volcanos and Rainbows!

One of our recent science experiments was volcanos! My oldest made a volcano out of playdough, put some baking soda in it and poured vinegar in it and watched it explode!

Another fun experiment we did when learning about rainbows was get a cup of milk, put it in a bowl and put 3 different colors in different courners in the shape of a triangle and watch them blend together like a rainbow!

The Letter M and Bubbles!!

As Brooklyn learned about the letter M one of the fun activities we did was make a mouse out of the letter M with construction paper, candy, glue, cotton balls, pipe cleaners and more!

We also did a fun home made bubble experiment to go with a lesson about polygons for my oldest son! We made bubble blowers out of piper cleaners in different shapes and used a simple home made bubble recipe with nothing more then water and dish liquid!

Keagan turns 7!

My 2nd child had his 7th birthday this week! He doesn't actually turn 7 for another week but we had his party a little earlier since everyone was going on spring break and then we were moving and he wanted to share the fun with his friends here in Texas!

He wanted to have a wrestling cake so mamma tackled it herself and made a square cake with sticks for the poles, marshmallows on the poles and pull apart liqorish for the ropes! I think it turned out pretty good for someone who is by far not a cake decorator lol it was a lot better making it for $5 vs the $80 they wanted to charge me to have one made! And we all know how I am on cakes and have for years paid that because the cake is a big thing but I am having a lot of fun making them if they turn out decent haha One day I will get to take my cake decorating class!

He absolutely loved it and that was all that mattered!

Elmo Elmo Elmo!!!!!!

Anyone that knows my youngest Peyton knows that she is absolutely OBSESSED with Elmo! Everything is elmo! She refuses to wear clothes unless it has elmo on it! If you get her in it, it doesn't stay on long and she asks for elmo! Only drinks from elmo sippy cups, only eats from elmo plates, and of course.. everything is "I watcha elmo"
So daddy took her on a little daddy daughter date when Elmo Live came to town and boy was she on cloud 9!!! She lit up like nothing else and was just babbling all night going on and on!
She goes around singing elmos world all the time now lol
Of course she conned dad out of an over priced elmo doll and balloon but it was worth it haha
