Bird feeders

The boys and I made bird feeders the other day for school.

Into Everything...

Yep. This is my life with Jack on the move now! He is so close to walking and when that happens...I will never have a moment of peace. He loves to get into EVERYTHING! Thankfully I have two helpful brothers who are good at helping mom pick up the mess that hurricane Jack leaves in his wake! :)

What else can he get into...

So proud of himslef!
In he goes.

My Growing Boy!

I can't believe it has been almost 9 mo. since I have had this little guy! He is growing so fast! It has been a fun and sleepless time. ;) He is still having touble sleeping at night but when day comes, he flashes that cute grin and all is forgiven! He is a sweetie but know what he wants and if he doesn't get it he lets it be known! Andrew and Seth are good big brothers, overly helpful at times but they absoultly LOVE Jack to death! With three very active boys, along with all the other activites of the week and some subbing, it is hard to find time to blog. I have been inspired to blog more, and will try my best! Wanted to show you all how big Jack is getting!

Hi camera!
He is already standing all by himself. No walking yet but getting close!
So proud of himself for standing!
I did a little photo op with Jack after his bath. This is the best one I got, since everytime I tried to get him to sit still he went for the letters. Not like I was too surprised but thought I would try anyway!:)
This outfit Jack got from Great Grandma Hulsing. It is a 12mo. outfit. I can't believe he is ready for 12mo. clothes already!
My only one with Brown eyes! I love them!

Thank you Pintrest!

This idea was such a fun idea from pintrest, I just had to try it! I was a hit with the boys! We used masking tape and made roads all over our basement! The boys even took it a bit farther and made houses with their duplo legos and put them along the roads. What a fun time. For those of you who have no checked out Pintrest....It is AWESOME! :)

Our parking garage.

Jack even had fun with the cars! (look at those teeth! :)

Fall apple craft

The other day for part of our homeschooling day we did a fall craft. I am hoping to go to an apple orchard this year with the boys. After we got done with our work we used our thumbs print to make an apple. I have wanted to use our finger paint more and so this was the perfect craft.

Seth and his thumb print.
Andrew's final product. (He is my go fast and get it done as quickly as possible...) He did very well on writing A is for Apple all by himself. It is such a joy to watch him learn and be able to teach him!
Mom's (teacher) example. :)
Seth's final product. Seth can write a few letters by himself, but for today we just had him write the A's.

More snakes...

The boys and papa found a snake the other day. They had a blast carrying that thing around everywhere! They are so much like their dad!

So you can tell!

Tomato caterpillars, as the boys call them. Eww, is what mom calls them!
baby snake. They kept saying " aww, he is so cute" Lol.

Pretty Vines!

We have had this trellis on the side of our porch since we have moved into this house. When we moved in there was a vine that would grow up it,but would not last long. It never grew all the way to the top either. My Mother-in-law gave me a potted vine last year. It was later in the year and so it grew pretty well. I took the seeds and replanted them this Spring. It did amazing this year! I haven't had the trellis full before! It is so pretty! Thanks Cindy!

The flowers came out this last week! They are so pretty!
Bottom to top!
