Well, we have certainly been busy since the last Fly... I've moved the blog. We've had 3 Birthdays!!! Cailey turned 10 on March 23rd, Colin turned 7 on March 31st and I had my big 0-4 on March 25th. 


Cailey and Colin each got a bird for an early birthday present. 

Me to Colin - Why do you have your giant t-rex and your bird??
Colin - The bird is going to play with the t-rex.
Me - Ummmm.... I don't think that will work.....

Urban Dictionary: neckbeard


Urban Dictionary
1. (n) Facial hair that does not exist on the face, but instead on the neck. Almost never well groomed.

Joshua - I love my neckbeard but once it gets hot I'm shaving!
Me - Bring on the heat!!!

Joshua - Painters paint.... Plumbers plumb. 

Me to Colin - Do NOT shoot paintbrushes out of your crossbow!!!

So Joshua has been listening to this - Daydreamin' by Austin Roberts

He thought that maybe ostrich was slang for something else so he Googled "ostrich slang". When he did "Ostrich Slaughter Disease" came up. When he clicked on it it was actually Osgood Schlatter Disease, better known as knobby knees. 

I will never fully understand the hilarity that ensued.... 

Joshua - Did you know that turtles can breathe out of their butts?????

Joshua - This modern age is getting to me.... I saw that painting... It's called "The Strolling Musicians". I thought it said #trollingmusicians...

We did a bunch of fun stuff this last month. 

The kids made Mud Pies

I made Worm Cupcakes

I've added new tutorials, the DIY Taggie, the Sewing Machine Cover,  and the Stars and Stripes Shorts.

I also added more homeschooling themes: Titanic, American Revolution, and Human Body

OH! And I posted about some of the activities we've been doing and the books I bought at the used book store

It was a busy month!!!!

Don't forget to click the links and read all the great posts for this month!!!!


  1. One of these days, we are going to HAVE to make a trip to meet in the middle. Hey....just food for thought, I live not far from the original KFC. History lesson, right? haha FIELD TRIP!

  2. No, I did NOT know that turtles can breathe out of their butts. If I were a turtle, I'd be breathing in through my nose, and OUT through my butt, that's for sure.
    Love the bird. I miss having one, but with two cats...

    1. That's just one of the little tidbits Joshua loves to toss out every once in a while. LOL
      Yeah, our cats still haven't gotten tired of waiting by the cage in hopes that one will get out! LOL

  3. I am cracking up about the neckbeard! I hope it gets warmer too! Fun post! Look forward to following your blog more!

    1. Thank you!!!!
      I need to stock up on the shaving cream in advance! ;)

  4. Neck beards and turtles breathing from their butts?
    I has been a busy month. ;)
    The Prince just did away with the beard last month and I was not at all sad to see it go.
    The stories that are going through my head about how you came to have to defend not shooting paint brushes from his crossbow... lol
    I don't know how you do it all so fabulously!

    1. Thank you so much, Meg!!!!

      The kids make me say the craziest things! LOL

  5. Turtle butts? Still laughing. Totally gonna google it.
    Turtles and ostriches and birds? It's a theme Fly on the Wall!

  6. Stacy, you always have so much fun at your house!!
    I'm going to actually try the crossbow and paintbrush thing. Hey, it could be artsy!
    I also promise to use "neck beard" three times tomorrow :)

    1. ROFLOL!! Yes, it could be very artsy! Maybe I can let him in a controlled environment! LOL
