Oh what a busy week! Jack is now 8, Victoria is now 13, Alex is now 4 and I am now really tired! Here’s a few ways we’ve been learning and playing lately… 1. We had a joint birthday party for the boys in Mankato. The kids were in charge of most of the cake [...]

Anna (Tib) was in the long blue sailor-like dress with curly blondish brown hair just past her shoulders. Jack was also in one scene listening to the stories, wearing a red [...]
Learning is all fun and games.
PE is always interesting.
