The Art of Fort Making

My husband and I were out one Friday evening for a date. While were gone our boys decided to make a fort. I must say that I was impressed with the durability of this one. It was so comfy that the older boys slept in it. We decided to not move them. They should get to enjoy the fruit of their hard work. Pay no attention to the condition of the couch. I can happily say that it is gone now and served us well (7 years for a very cheap couch). What cute brothers!

The back of the fort. See, pretty creative don't you think?

Boys and forts....so much fun...most of the time :)

First Day of School 2011-2012

This year we are trying something new with school. These boys have attended my school, but after some deliberation and hard decision making we are homeschooling them. Yes, I am still working and yes it is hard and we are still figuring it out, but let me say I already love it. (it is by no means the ideal, but we are learning to work with what we have) They go to a learning center two days a week. They have classes like life science, karate, computers, step up to writing, lego league, art (meet the masters), and some other fun things. They are learning lots. It will be an interesting year, but I think we might survive. (might....) I will keep you posted on how it goes.

Checking their schedules and seeing which line to line up in.

Laundry Races

Where have we been? Well, we have been doing laundry basket races of course. There is nothing more fun than using these baskets for everything but laundry. So #1 and #3 raced #2 and #4. On your mark, get set,GOOOOO!!!!!!!The drivers were having a good time as long as the race was clean and safe (no baskets toppling over)
