Ninja Warriors

Posted by Hallee on Jul 5, 2010 in Parenting, preschool activities, Raising boys

I bought two swords and handed them to Scott and Johnathan. They immediately, immediately started sword fighting. It was hysterical – I have no idea where they even learned to sword fight. But in the two hours between the time we got there and the concert started, they were well entertained.

Security Bwanket

Posted by Hallee on Jun 10, 2010 in Parenting, preschool activities, Raising boys

Now, wherever we go, so goes Wightning. And Scott replays the movie as he races Lightning over the backs of chairs in the dentist office waiting room, his car seat arms, the back of the couch, his bed, his stroller frame, the slide at the park. He is never without Wightning unless we’re at the table (“No cars at the table, here, Mommy,”) or in the bath, (“Wightning will get ruined in the bath, here, Mommy.”). The only time he wakes up in the middle of the night anymore is when it falls out of his hand. I’ve spent many a 3AM pulling the fallen car out from behind Scott’s bed or digging it out from under his pillow.

If it looks like summer…And it feels like summer…And tastes like summer…Can we just go ahead and call it summer? What do you say?

♫ There Are Twelve Months in a Year ♫

Posted by Hallee on May 12, 2010 in homeschooling, Parenting, preschool activities

In the hallway outside of the kids’ rooms, there hangs a calendar.

I bought it in a teachers’ supply section of an office store. It was designed to hang on a bulletin board so that you could use staples or thumbtacks to hang it up.

This hangs on the hall wall. We use tape. I tried to use that sticky gum stuff so that it wouldn’t rip the base or the numbers, but Johnathan ate it.

Quick & Succulent Pizza Snack

Posted by Hallee on Apr 22, 2010 in Hallee's Galley, Parenting, preschool activities, Recipes, Snacks

I improvised. I had some table water cookies and thought that they would make a good crust. I worried that they would get soggy, but they didn’t at all. They were perfect. I made the sauce quickly, using ketchup and spices. Twenty minutes after Scott voiced the desire for pizza for lunch, we were sitting down to enjoy it.

St. Patrick’s Day — As Told By Veggie Tales

Posted by Hallee on Mar 17, 2010 in Christian Faith, inspiration, missions, Parenting, preschool activities

I found this on Our Homeschool Home’s blog this morning and it is SO BRILLIANT. I know we told the story yesterday about the origins of St. Patrick’s Day, but this is much more detailed, and told in Veggie Tales brilliance so I could not help but share it with you. Enjoy!

The boys had star fruit for lunch yesterday. It cheered us up immensely from being stuck in the house while the cold rain beat down outside.
