Our last unit was Frogs. Again my kids choose the units so here we go!

Day 1: Reading. Familiarizing ourselves with frogs using the 5 W's. Again I checked out a lot of books from the library. These books include craft ideas, games, and art projects.

Day 2: Froggy Craft from Tippytoe Crafts

Day 3: Playing leap frog in mom's bedroom room. Of course it was a little difficult for the Engineer to easily hop over his big brother but he sure gave it a good shot while my little Sweet Pea just hopped around ;)

Day 4: Rock painting frogs. Anything including paint in art always works. For this craft I didn't have nice round rocks like I would have liked but what I lack in supplies my kids more than make up in imagination.
Go to link above for craft.
Day 5: A few cities over there is a great Nature Center where parents can take the kids to look at animals in their natural habitat as well as learn something. So Thursday afternoon we headed for a quick look at what they had on frogs then had a little picnic unfortunately I was too busy keeping track to think to take pictures, next time.

Overall a great week, a lot learned, creative thinking, and new adventures!

Grace to you,

A Mother's Prayer

Lord bless my home and anyone who enters. Lead me daily so that I am always aware of You! Whether educating my kids, cooking or cleaning may my attitude always be that of a servant. Give me the words to guide my children to You, to know You, Your character and love You, Lord. Please teach to have patience and to always be learning. Lord mold me through each stage of life so I am continually growing and pursuing You no matter what. Lord I want to be a great mom and wife and I know that if I look only to You for help that I can accomplish this, the love for my family that I desire to show them. Lord I'm amazed by You and I love You. Amen.

Full of Life, Full of Love

"The spirited child-often called "difficult" or "strong-willed"--possesses traits we value in adults yet find challenging in children. Research shows that spirited kids are wired to be "more"-by temperament, they are more intense, sensitive, perceptive, persistent, and uncomfortable with change than the average child." It seems as though we have three, and they are very much like me. What does this mean? I need to be compassionate, consistent, confident, controlled, all with a gentle yet firm approach. Yes my plate is full.

Motherhood: A rigorous training ground

What an awesome responsibility mothers have to their children. Cultural stereotypes promote the idea that giving birth miraculously endows women with kindness, compassion, and goodness. But we all know better. Many of us can witness that we are made more aware of our weaknesses and impatience after becoming mothers than we were before. Godliness and generosity are not prerequisites of giving birth; they are characteristics that God hones and whittles into our character over time. Motherhood provides a rigorous training ground where we can display practice and model the disciplines of love, honesty, and compassion before our children. --Rebecca Laird
