Making That Chocolate Thing

A favorite part of homeschooling is spur of the moment projects ~ in this case making 'that chocolate thing' (aka Pioneer Woman Cookie Spread). Griffin asked to make it, and he did it all on his own. The best part is it in involved both math and chemistry!

Missions - Brown Bag

Fun time packing brown bags with these young men, Lisa and MrMike last night. Looking over to the right, you see MrMike making the Christmas treats the kids added to the bags. And, I'm grateful for friends like Brian for noticing something needed to be done and he did it, so someone else didn't have to. I love our church family!

Piano Player.

I wish I could bottle the excitement he is feeling today about his piano lesson. He is on the final song in book two and he can hardly wait to move on to the next. Truthfully, I don't think I have ever seen him this excited about anything. Ever. I'm so thankful for his incredible piano teacher.
