Piece of tidbit for you

On the way home from Bible study tonight, Jocelyn asked if the stars look bigger when you are in outer space? Well I didn't know the exact answer so I looked it up and this is what I found.
An interwiew with Sally Ride~ the first American Woman in space
What do the stars look like from space? Are they bigger?
The stars don't look bigger, but they do look brighter. When you're on Earth, if you go to the top of a mountain, the stars look much brighter than they do at sea level. And because the space shuttle is above Earth's atmosphere, it's like being on a very, very high mountain. So they look brighter, but not bigger.

So there you go, in case any 6 year old asks that question you now have an answer:)

Journal Covers

Last year we covered the kids composition books with scrapbook paper, but they didn't turn out so well. This year we tried again and they turned out much better!
I got the idea from Kelli .
Grab your supplies: paper for front and back, stickers, and letters for the name.

Wrap books front and back,tape them, decorate and add name and year.



The kids had a great time decorating their books, Jordan is my girlie girl so she picked flowers. Jocelyn picked spaghetti because she was hungry and Bday balloons because her Bday was coming up. Jacob picked a water scene and Sponge Bob. I personally think he picked sponge Bob to annoy me but it was his book so I put on my best smile:)

We also did the same with their nature journals.

They're finally home!

After almost a year from when my friend gave me a goat for my birthday, she and two others came home. I was sick over the weekend so I wasn't able to get some pictures when they came home. So today, after school when my handsome hubby took the kiddos to go pick blackberries and prunes, I headed out to the pasture with my camara. They are so darn cute and friendly as can be!!!
