Doodle days

Some "school" days are purely artistic. My husband and I are artsy, creative people and it seems to have spread to our children as well. The other day, we spent the morning at the kitchen table doodling and creating.

Keagan's new interest is in stickers. Have you ever watched a baby play with stickers? It's hilarious! He peels one off the sheet and stares at it, then pulls it off with his other fingers. Then he stares at his other hand and tries to shake off the sticker. Then he tries to pull it off with his other hand, and the process repeats until the sticker is in a wad. He's finally figured out how to stick them on papers!

This particular day, we made our own cereal, and Merikalyn named her cereal "Turauncho." Btw, the says you need to roll the R. She thinks she can speak Spanish, especially when she's pretend-cooking.

Can you guess what this is? It's Ariel the Mermaid holding a frog.

All of my children love to bang on the piano. I mean, what little one doesn't like loud noise? Here they are in their pajamas. Merikalyn is wearing one of my old shirts from my teen years.

Hi Mandy! My name is Liz, hope you don't mind that I'm following your blog! I'm from a rural part of NY state. I love that you homeschool or "unschool" your children in such a great Godly home. I've actually never heard it called un-schooling but I like that term. We don't have children yet but we've already decided that we're not going to send them out of the house for school. I went to college for education and then when we were planning our wedding, I quit. I'm a stay at home wife while making things from home. I love that the Lord has given me this chance! Oh, I noticed that you're interests are homebirth and unassisted birth! That's so awesome, I decided (while my sister was in labor) that I was going to have a homebirth, whenever we get pregnant! I cannot wait, it's going to be quite the experience! Anyway, thanks for reading this, I hope we can connect, I love making new friends!
