Kids Sunday Photo Shoot

I took some family photos for some friends today. After editing and helping the colors out, they really turned out well. So I snapped some of my kids as well.

This is the same image. I just edited it to make close ups of the other images.




I need to learn how to get the glasses glare edited out. I get this a lot when I shoot people with glasses.


Fall RR Tracks Photo Shoot

These were some pictures I took the other day at a local RR crossing.I also created my own watermark.

Hopefully I can figure out an easier way to get it on, without having to do it manually on each photo.






Fall photo shoot

Saturday was a beautiful day here, so I took the opportunity to snap some pics of the kids during the fall changes.

At a nearby park.




Trees in my backyard.

Weekly Wrap Up Week 10

We have had a busy week this week.

We began the week with 4H Time Traveler Activities.
(This is a group where we learn about history and different things like that.)

We learned about all different types of apples.
Then in the afternoon we took a walking tour of a nearby town.

That is where I captured this picture and decided to digi scrap it.
(This is using free elements from Shabby Princess.)
We began reading A Cabin Faced West and read chapters 1-5 this week. We finished chapter 14 of The Light and the Glory for Children. This is our last regular week. Next week will be a review week to review the previous 1 weeks.


Peyton is almost finished with Key to Fractions Book 2.
Lexi is managing in MUS Gamma on Lesson 25.

Peyton finished his second quiz on Latin book 2 and scored 100.

Fall Work

Well there are so many things I love about Fall, but raking is not one of them.

The Fall colors have changed so fast this year, and the leaves have fallen really quick too.
They fell so fast that the mower just got bogged down. So we had to rake some up just to mow.
The yard behind is after we already did the other half of the yard. Our front yard was literally littered in deep leaves.

Fall Foilage

Our yard has been quickly showing colors of fall. Over the last 2 weeks many trees have changed. This week many trees are dumping leaves like crazy. So I wanted to snap some shots before they all fall to the ground.








Week 9 Homeschool Reca

This is the 9th week in our America Unit Study. Here are things we have accomplished.

We finished reading "Johnny Tremain", and we also watched the movie.

We finished reading "The Matchlock Gun", we also watched Felicity (An American Girl), since it was the same time period. 1775.

We are also reading " King George What Was His Problem? The Whole Hilarious Story of the American Revolution."

King George: What Was His Problem?: The Whole Hilarious Story of the Revolution


In Science:

We drew Zooplankton, Phytoplankton, Nekton and Benthos. (We also defined them-where they live and how they act.)


In Independent studies:

Peyton completed :

Lessons 20-25 in Key To Fractions Book 2

Latin Book 2 Lessons 9-13

Queens Language Lessons 26-30

He also aced his spelling pre-test!

Lexi completed:

Lesson 7 Funtastic Spelling and aced her pre-test!

She worked on Multiplication skills, took lesson 23 test in MUS and began lesson 24.

Queens LL-Lessons 26-30

The next two weeks we will be on fall break, but the kids will continue LA and Math, and Peyton will continue Latin. (That should only take about 30-45 minutes per day.)

I am looking forward to getting some fall cleaning done. (Curtains all washed, carpets cleaned, basement cleaned, and hopefully some much needed yard work done.) Dh is taking off the first week too.
