I went to Alaska and....

I saw a moose!
I had a great time visiting my sister and her hubby and getting some things ready for my new nephew/niece.
Can't wait until October to find out if it's Owen or Elle!

Fun with Words

Above are bits and pieces from Psalm 1 (which is our homeschool theme "verse"). I found a link to and gave it a whirl. Kinda fun, isn't it?!

Coloring the Table

April was a very fun month. Dan rode a camel in Israel, my mom and my sister came to Quito for a visit, I had cherry chip cake for my birthday, Andy lost another tooth, and we colored the table!

Quito Zoo

Since Andy is on spring break this week and Grandma is visiting from the US, we decided to check out the Quito Zoo today. We saw a lot of animals native to Ecuador and a few "imported" ones, such as the kangaroos. The kids (and the 5 other adults who went along) had a great time feeding carrots to the cows, donkeys, goats, sheep, and guinea pigs.

Two of the girls who went with us are from the jungle (Gladys and her niece Sara). It was hilarious listening to them as we walked by the animals. They would say, "We have those in the jungle. They taste good!" or "We have those too. They eat our chickens!"

Spelling Words

Spelling is not Andy's favorite subject and practicing during the week is always a struggle (sometimes it's all-out-war!). Dan gave me the good idea of using whiteboard markers on a mirror a few weeks ago. I didn't get pictures of that, but I did get some of Andy writing on the windows.

Hint: you can kill two birds with one stone this way since when you wipe the marker off the dust comes too! :)

On Tuesday mornings, after we drop Andy off at school and before we go to BSF, Carolyn and I go to Corfu for coffee. Well, I have coffee and she has a box of chocolate milk! It is our favorite time together and we look forward to it each week. Today I remembered to take the camera (I have to do that now that I've started this blogging thing!).
