What We Did Last Week

Last week was another busy one!! Here are just a few of the things we did.

We read that the emperors in Ancient China rode in elephant drawn chariots.

Cailey's on the bottom, Colin's on the top.

We made Play-Doh Chinese dragons!  (In the background are the pictures they drew of things made in Ancient China.)

WOW! Cailey was having a bad hair day! ;)

These are their birds' nest projects they did after reading Even an Ostrich Needs a Nest by Irene Kelly.

Colin's is the construction paper picture and Cailey's is the colored-pencil drawing.

On Saturday we went to the Home Depot Kids Workshop. OMG! The kids had SO MUCH FUN!! We got to watch a helicopter land. Then they brought out the bomb squad's robot! There was also a fire truck!!!

Then the kids made fire rescue planes.

They left with their planes, fire hats, goodie bags, balloons, popcorn, and juice! LOL

My next post will be about the dress Cailey is wearing in the Home Depot pictures. ;) Just a little sneak peek.



  1. I just love hearing about all the projects and activities you do with your kids. Mine went to public school, but I volunteered in their classrooms weekly and ran the class holiday parties and those were just so much fun to do. Anything hands-on seems to bring out the best in students.

  2. THANK YOU!!!!
    Oh, I remember being Class Mom! LOL My oldest 3 went to public school until 7th, 5th and 4th. I can remember trying to be in 3 places at once! LOL
    The kids love doing experiments, art work, anything hands on. I think they learn better that way. Helps them to retain what they've read or heard.
    The older 2 refuse to let me take pictures of their projects. SIGH... I can barely get pictures of THEM!

  3. What fun the Home depot trip was.. Know the kids enjoyed it.. Look forward to hearing about Cailey's dress.. Happy sewing and schooling.

  4. Thank you, Judy!! :D
    I think I have the dress scheduled for tomorrow! :D
