The Very Hungry Caterpillar Birthday Party

Well, my baby boy is now one year old and we had a blast with his party! We had it at a local children's museum. I made his birthday outfit myself, did the classic Hungry Caterpillar Cupcake Cake (Ignore the antennae!), and the party favors are caterpillars made out of green sixlets with fruit candy. Anyways, we had an awesome time!
We bought him the Y-bike Pewi, which is seriously the best designed ride on toy walker combo on the market.
He absolutely loves it! My mom made him a Hungry Caterpillar quilt which turned out super cute.
He smashed into the head of his Caterpillar Cake!
Of course they loved all the stuff to play with at the museum.
Happy Birthday Little Dude!

Has it been that long?

Wow, I just realized how long it has been since I posted! We are having an awesome schoolyear! We are using My Father's World curriculum this year and we are loving it. We are just starting a unit on Moses combined with Egyptian history. We have been working on Egyptian history for a while now and are just running into Moses. The kids are memorizing the Ten Commandments, and I ordered some extra books about Egyptian mythology and mummies. We are going to be doing a unit on frogs as well. I will have to post pictures once we get going on it. Little Guy is improving on speech and actually said "movie" perfect yesterday which is HUGE for him. We are working on learning the ABC's and he can already count to ten perfectly. My tiniest one is not so tiny anymore. He will be one year old in exactly one week. Anyways, here is what we have been up to in pictures.

Catching up

Wow, I haven't posted in forever! That is what happens when you have a new baby I guess. The schoolyear has ended and we are going on vacation next week. It is to a small resort/waterpark and we are hoping the kids do okay with water this year. I can't wait to post pictures. Little Guy is doing awesome with speech therapy. He is using short sentences now and we can understand a lot more of what he is saying. He is still leaving off sounds which makes it hard but he is still doing awesome! Our new little one is developing right on schedule and has great eye contact. He is even responding to his name and babbling. So nice to not be worried about him right now. The older two kiddos are doing awesome too. My eldest ran in a one mile fun run an d really enjoyed himself, and my Princess just turned six and is obsessed with my little ponies. :-)

Garden Center--Sensory Play

Well the pool is still in the house but the beans were getting old so we put those away. I went to walmart and bought artificial flowers, easter grass, and decorative rock and put it all in the pool along with some plastic cups to be "flower pots". Real flower pots would be more fun but I didn't think of that until we got home so I improvised. They have been playing with this for a couple of days now. They plant thier flowers and arrange the rocks. They are having so much fun!

Since taking the pictures, I have also added some toy chickens and plastic eggs for more of an Easter/spring theme. They have been filling the eggs with rocks and making nests for them. :)

We went to the Putnam Museum this week to see the Dinosaur exibit. Geesh that thing was expensive but worth it! All the kids loved it except my princess. She just wanted to get through to the good stuff like the Discovery Room. Here are some pics!

Sensory play--planting trees

We had broughten the wading pool inside after a storm blew it halfway accross town, so I decided to take advantage of the situation. We have had a bin full of dried beans to use for sensory therapy for years now, and I decided to try somthing larger scale for a change. I dumped the beans into the pool, and the kids had a blast "planting" the plastic trees we bought arround Christmas. We just may keep the pool indoors when not in use for similar activities.
