I have the news on in the background and they were talking about a robbery in the area and they said "Three armed men"
Connor stops and gets this look of shock on his face. He repeats very slowly "three armed men?!?!?"
I was confused, and then it donned on me that he thought the men had three arms. ROFL!

The toothfairy has made several visits to our home recently.
Connor lost a second tooth shortly after his first, and Sadie lost one about three nights ago.
Connor has another loose one as well. Poor Grace wants so badly to be like her older siblings..she comes to me with an open mouth "are they ready to come out yet?"

Aaron and I have talked a lot about this trend lately. While I certainly thing its arrogent of us to think that we can destroy what God created, we both feel it is good stewardship to watch what we consume etc. Besides the fact that it cuts down on the amount of trash in the home. Which is nice for US!
We've done a few things- we've switched to the new lightbulbs- our light bill has gone down slightly.
Wal mart- at least one in our area- has started selling cloth grocery bags. We buy one or two when we go shopping, and hope to eventually have enough to go grocery shopping, and use only cloth bags. This goes into the whole trash thing- it cuts down on the amount of trash we have.
Being a family of 6 we already generate a lot. So the less we have to throw away the better.
We're going to cloth napkins- for two reasons- I always forget to buy napkins or paper towels, and again, less to throw away.
What about you? Are you "going green" or at least "light green" as I refer to myself?

This is my 200th post. Woohoo!
I was asked to explain the school pictures. :)
Grace was practicing writing her "G"s, Sadie and Connor were hunting for nouns on our word wall.
We reviewed vowels, and talked about nouns. They had to find ten nouns on the wall, and then circle the vowels in the words. :) Then Sadie had to write sentances using words from the word wall.
Grace is doing great recognizing her "G"s, she knows G is for Grace, the letter of the week this week is "R"
Our school schedule goes something like this:
Bible (which for the older two is studying their AWANA verses.)
Calendar time- adding the date, singing the days of the week song etc. (more for Grace's benefit then the others)
Talk about the letter of the week- go on a "hunt" for said letter
So far the kids have memorized the names of the following states: Texas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Iowa, Florida, Mississippi, Alaska, Rhode Island, California, New York, Vermont, New Jersey, Connecticut, Wisconsin, and Missouri. They are getting pretty good at finding them all on the map as well. :)
We add about two states a week to the list.
So that is our school update. :)
Matthew had a fun urgent trip to the eye dr yesterday (did I post this yet? I dont' think so)
Long story short, Grace poked him in the eye, and scratched his cornea. He's fine, but hates med time. lol
Anywho- woohoo on 200 posts :)
