Thankful Thursday

What are you thankful for today? My Square foot garden- it's much bigger now and covered in yellow pear and cherry tomatoes but it's too hot here to walk down and take a new picture.

Homemade pizza
Fun shoes

Thrifty Weekend

This weekend I decided to paint the chairs my sister gave me a couple of summers ago. I had hoped to buy some new patio furniture this summer but it is just not in the cards. So what to do with these old things?
A little bit of paint and I have new furniture!!! It's a little brighter than I envisioned but they are growing on me. I am thinking about making some cushions for them.

The start of my Workbox journey!

I have started collecting my supplies for our summer workboxes! I have a laminator and it is so much fun! I know that I am easily amused! Pictured below are our schedule strips, keyboard chart and other cards.

Here are some goodies I picked up at Dollar Tree. Sticky notes, Library Pockets, erasers, and word strips.
Here is my shelving unit for R. I only have 6 boxes. I will gather more as the summer goes along.

I hope this keeps me on track this year!

We are having so much fun doing a mini unit on frogs. R and I are working on a lapbook I bought here. I have bought several of her kits and found them to be lots of fun, filled with good information!
We are having so much fun with the frogs that I could not pass up the chance to raise tadpoles when I found a batch of eggs in my koi pond. I can't wait to see how many frogs we have!
Maybe I will find a french cookbook and try our the legs!!! (Just teasing! I have a feeling R will name them and every one knows you can't eat something with a name!)

Have you heard about Sue Patrick's Workboxes system for organizing your school day? I came across this idea on another blog and thought I would order the book and see what all the buzz was about. I can really see advantages for this system. I am going to give it a try with my youngest. I have 6 boxes and thought I would try it out this summer. We are still doing phonics and math. I plan to put some fun activities and review activities and see if it will help keep him away from the computer some this summer!

I would love to hear what you are doing this summer!

Today I am grateful for my family. I am grateful for a fun day together on Easter.

Scrapbook Supply Giveaway

I did a card with lots of green. I found the idea on Splitcoast Stampers. If you are ever stuck for ideas they have a wonderful gallery there.
Don't forget to make a card or page with lots of green and let me know! I will send some one a small box of goodies!

My New Good Friend

I bought this bread machine last year at a thrift shop. I used it a couple of times but I never found a recipe I really loved. About a month ago I found the easiest recipe that my family loves! I have been making a loaf a day ever since!

I decided last night to try to make Pizza dough. My new friend did not let me down! My family loved it and I think I may do it again next week! We did not even have any left over for this morning's breakfast.
Every one knows that is the Breakfast Of Champions!

The Eggs Have Been Dyed!

First Real Swim!!

The boys could not resist the sunshine yesterday. I think the water was a toasty 73 degrees!

Frugal Friday

The garden is finally in!
Here is my Square Foot Garden.
I have 3 kinds of tomatoes, 3 peppers, cucumbers, strawberries, squash, pole beans, and eggplant. We have already been visited by the area bunnies. They nibbled the top of one tomato and the banana pepper. It was just the top so I am hopeful they will pull through. We have also finished the fence so they cannot come back.
On my patio I have more tomatoes (cherry) and leaf lettuce.
Also on the patio, bell peppers and watermelon!

Spent the morning at the dentist watching my little one get a crown. :(

I plan spend this afternoon designing projects for a Stampin Up party!
