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.
