Sassy Mouth

Anyone who knew my Grandma Bigler, me as a child and now knows Aurora will know that she's is a carbon copy of us. Her sassy mouth originated with her Great Grandma Bigler. I inherited it and passed it directly onto Aurora. 

This morning when she woke up she picked out her clothes, shoes and accessories for the day and then proceeded to pick out matching clothes for her sister, Lydia. 

They are both wearing dark denim shorts, black shirts, yellow flip flops, Blake Shelton hats and glasses(Aurora's are fake).

After they were dressed, Lydia was putting Aurora's hair in a ponytail and said something sassy to Aurora. Aurora's sassy response was...... "Excuse me? Who's buying you ice cream today? That's right, me! I can always change my mind you know?!"

This little girl cracks me up! She even has a certain facial expression that reminds me exactly of my Grandma Bigler. Aurora was only two weeks old when my Grandma passed away so it is amazing to see her everyday in my little sassy mouthed Princess.

Dr. Who

Sage and Aurora have been obsessed with Dr. Who for about a year now and are always re-enacting episodes. Sage finally realized that he could build his own T.A.R.D.I.S out of Lego's. I love these kids and their imaginations!

Saltines, Pretzels and Marshmallows, OH MY!

Sage and Aurora have both struggled with learning math. We try to make learning math as visual and as fun as possible. We broke out the snack food today to help Aurora understand place value to the thousands place.

Book It!

We have been lucky enough to be able to participate in Pizza Hut's Book It! Program. We just received the chart and reading vouchers in the mail today. 

The kids love reading and get rewarded for it just like public school kids. Seriously, who doesn't love FREE PIZZA?!

Let's Get Comfy

One of our favorite things about homeschooling is that we don't have to work at a desk or table if we don't want to. Our favorite place to do our work is in the family room on our big comfy couch. 

The kids love to grab their clipboards and workbooks and cuddle into the couch. It makes school so much more enjoyable.
