Great Day Yesterday!

Hey Neighbors!

Yesterday was not a normal Sunday for us, but I really enjoyed the day anyway.  My husband and the older children had to go out of town, and I stayed behind with M and M.  They are 12 and 16.  Since, I don't drive we had to stay at home instead of actually attending church.  So instead, here is what we did.

We started out the morning with a really nice breakfast.  I made scrambled eggs with sausage and onion mixed in. Yum!  I had them just like that, but the two girls put theirs in tortillas and had breakfast burritos with salsa.  After eating breakfast we cleaned up, cleared the table and some of us had to shower for the day.

Next we did a small class together with a new curriculum I am reviewing.  I will be sharing more on that later, so be sure to keep an eye out for the Not Grass review.  It was based on Proverbs 1 and includes drawing/coloring.  Before we started anything else we put our chicken for lunch in the oven and then we watched a preaching video together.

Below is one of the snacks the girls had later that afternoon.  M went to the little store and their bags of mini Reese's had melted and re-solidified.  So they sold them for $1 a bag.  She thought it was great to slice them into pieces to snack on.

While we ate lunch, we watched a Buddy Davis video on creation.  They really enjoy these videos and we hadn't seen one in awhile.  After cleaning up from lunch we decided to sit down and play Yahtzee.  After three games, that the sixteen year old won every time we quit.  We still had fun.

Next we had to give the little male puppy a bath because his new owners were arriving to pick him up.  We got him all clean and dried and then sat around talking until they arrived to pick him up.  They LOVED him!  I think he will enjoy his new home.

After we were situated for the evening we fixed a light dinner.  I had a salad and the girls had pizza rolls.  One of their favorites!

Later that evening we had snacks and played Scrabble.  We had a snack of pepperoni, cheese and crackers.  We actually played until the family came home around 11:00 pm.  It was a great day, with plenty of quality time together.  I think it was pretty special to them too.

Have a great day!  See you soon, At the Fence!

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
