It is driving me crazy that I can't find some of the comments I wrote down. I debated waiting to post, but decided I might as well post now and if I find the comments I will just share them next week. So here are the ones I found:
One of the songs we sing almost every night at Bible Time is "Climb, climb up sunshine mountain." The girls take turns on daddy's lap as he does the motions (alot faster than we are supposed to do them). Then at the end when they are pointing at themselves he tends to tickle them because he has a hold of their hands. The one night this past week Tabitha told daddy, "I don't want to laugh because I'm gonna choke."
Last night we were going in to brush teeth before bed and I was singing some silly song about going to brush our teeth. I wasn't really paying attention to what the girls were saying. Suddenly Tabitha stated, "I repeated you." I asked her to explain what she meant and she said, "I copied you." I realized then that she had been singing what I had been singing.
This morning Amelia had gotten her shirt on all by herself. Tabitha looked at her and said, "She needs something to cover her legs, cause that's not modest." (she really emphasized "not modest")
I walked into the kitchen this morning where Amelia was already seated at the counter where the cereal and bowls were set out. I noticed she had poured her own Life cereal in her bowl. She said, "I poured this for my-self." I wish I could explain better how she emphasized the "my" in "myself." It was so cute.
I love that I am able to post things Amelia says now. I was really looking at the pictures I posted today for Muffin Tin Monday and I realized Amelia has changed so much in the past year. So, I went into my pictures to take a look at just how much they have changed. Thought I would share some pictures to compare.
As there was no theme this week, I decided to use our letter of the week: O
Octopus hot dog, carrot o's and olives (which they don't seem to like anymore but I keep trying), O shaped cheddar and monteray jack cheese, spaghetti o's, piece of omelet, mandarin oranges, golden Oreo.
They liked their octopus hot dogs. They ended up asking for ketchup and ranch dressing to dunk them in. Though the oranges were the first things eaten. They did a pretty good job this week.
The importance of PLAY is not lost on me. I know most of the time I am posting about the lessons that we do each week. I just found a new-to-me link up called We Play and decided I wanted to start posting the fun things the girls do during the week that are not planned out.
I thought it was so cute that Tabitha was "reading" to Amelia in Amelia's chair. Yes, Amelia is on Tabitha's lap.
We decided to get out the musical "instruments."
Tins make great drums!
In the next picture Tabitha was copying the patterns I was making. She was doing a great job actually.
Tabitha and Amelia took turns taking pictures. Mommy got a turn to be in the pictures
Sort of. Amelia needs a little more practice with picture taking.
Time to find some cool new blogs. I'm looking forward to making some new friends. I hope you can take the time to check out my blog, if you like what you see I would love for you to follow my blog.

Looking forward to visiting some new blogs this week. Have a blessed day.
I am a stay at home mom. I have always wanted to teach, started college with a major in Early Education, but ended up staying home with my son (which turned into staying home with my 2 sons and daughter). Years later ended up with an Associates Degree in Human Services. Which helped me get a director's position at the Montessori I was working at. I am now staying home with my 3 young children. While my older children are off in public school we are homeschooling. I am doing what I always dreamed of doing, teaching!! I feel this is where God has led and willed me to be. I will be here to "Train up [my children] in the way [they] should go: [so] when [they are] old, [they] will not depart from it." Proverbs 22:6
