Strawberry pickin'

This last week was beautiful here.  I'm afraid though that it might be our only week of summer we get in the UK.  It's back down into the 60's again with clouds and rain and last week it was in the 80's.  

The kids and I went to pick strawberries with out little play group on the base.  It was a good time.  They loved it.  Plus the farm is so beautiful with great views.  

Here is our slide show.

Almost Spring

It has been beautiful here.  Spring time is just around the corner here.  The other day it was in the 60's and they girls were super excited.  It seemed like it had been FOREVER since we has been outside to play because it had been so muddy and damp and cloudy.  

You can see how excited Aurora is.  

 Corina thought is was warm enough for a tank top and shorts.  

About a month ago I downloaded Instagram for my iPhone.  I like it because it takes the picture right then.  You don't have to wait for the flash and then the moment is gone.  Anyhow, then the pictures post in your line up and whoever you are friends with on there can see your pictures and you can also see theirs as well.  

Here is a cute picture of Wesley.  
 Aurora really loves Wesley. She is always bringing hime toys and hugging and loving on him.  
 Here is Corina. She is growing up so fast.  Sometimes I look at here and it scares me.  

Mark took the girls to the park the other day.  Gwyneth insisted upon wearing this winter hat even though it wasn't that cold.  I think she liked the hearts.  

I know that I have more to say but I won't for now.  Have a good week everyone.

Valentines Day

Well, it's been a while since I have blogged.  Since Thanksgiving I think. So it's a new year the holidays are over so it's time to start again.  First of all since I have discovered Pinterest my life has been more crafty.  Below is a coke tab bracelet I made.  It was super easy and Corina is going to give this one to her friend for her birthday.  We have made so many things because of that site and the girls and I love looking on there for projects or ideas.  

Corina had a little party at Girl Scouts the other day.  I was really glad because homeschooling you don't get to enjoy the big school party and hand out valentines like that.  Here is the little purses we made for her Brownie friends.

Here is the Valentine hair that we did for the party.

 I thought this year we would have a little party of our own.  One day I got to go to the store by myself (which is a rarity) and I saw they had all this Valentine cake stuff on sale.  I got icing and cake decorating tips and a cake mix that had red speckles in there.  Those girls had the best time decorating those cupcakes.  Corina decided (for that day) that she was going to be a pastry chef when she grows up.

 Here is mine.  I good attempt at my first time doing something like this I thought.

 Corina did a good job too.
 And so did Aurora.

So the party was a success and we have cupcakes left over.  Actually as I write this they are decorating more right now.  

As for the regular stuff we are still homeschooling.  I found a wonderful preschool curriculum online that I'm going to do with Gwyneth and Aurora.  Aurora is flying through her reading curriculum that I got her.  It's just learning letter and their sounds but she is surprising me.  So is Gwyneth.  All the things she is picking up from hearing me teach the others is amazing.  Corina is doing good in her school too.  I think she is starting to realize a bunch of things and why education is important so that is helping her do even better in school.  

That's all for now.
