It's Great to be a Michigan Wolverine!!

Thanks to a family member, Zeke and daddy got to make it into the Big House this year. Zeke enjoyed seeing the game and learning the Michigan stadium cheers. Go Blue!

We had a good couple of weeks getting our school routine implemented and flowing. This year is a lot more work than my previous years homeschooling. I am pretty exhausted by 9pm!

Here are some highlights of our last couple of weeks.

Steve took the kids raspberry picking while mommy stayed home not feeling well.

I HAVE. A. DINOSAUR . STICKER. ON. MY. HEAD! (I wish I could relay Micah's voice and the way he talks. This boy is HILARIOUS!...and exhausting!)

Highlights from ECC, week2:

Zeke really enjoyed making this map of our home town. Abby helped draw some of the landmarks too.

And our end of week 2 world cake celebration; we even shared it with some friends that came over for dinner!

Our water cycle in a jar observation: I am fascinated by this and can't figure out why my 7 and 5 year olds aren't :)

  1. It took us a couple of weeks to get into the routine also. And this year is much more work than last year, for me and for my daughter in ECC. It makes last year seem like a breeze. But we love it and wouldn't have it any other way right now.

    I'm with you on the water cycle jar. I'm fascinated with it too, but the kids look at it (when I ask them to) and say, "oh, cool" and that's pretty much it! Oh well.

    Your world cake looks really good! We didn't do that. I make so many cakes for family birthday parties that I was too lazy to do another one. After seeing all these world cake pictures on blogs, I'm feeling guilty, so we may make one at the end of this week (even though we're in America now).

    Thanks for sharing your pictures. It's neat to see what/how others are doing.
