Ashtyn's dance recital

I wanted to put this video from May up to share with all our family, who couldn't come to Ashtyn' dance recital. This video is terrible quailty. It was take by my point and shoot in 59 second intervals, put together. I am so thankful that Brent gave me a new video camera for mother's day, so future videos will be much better! Ashtyn is the first to enter, in the second group of girls and at the end he is on the far right.

Valentine Fun

Where does the time go? It is hard to believe that it is already Valentines! It has been a while since my last post, but no need to catch up, instead I will keep moving forward.

Tomorrow is our homeschool group's Valentines party, so tonight we had the fun task of getting ready. Every year, my crafty child, Ashtyn, insists on making her own handmade Valentine cards. I think it is awesome and although, I'm not crafty, it is fun to join in. This year I decided to make one for Brent.


The boys simply have the task of tearing theirs apart and writing their names on it. I gave them their simple instructions and left them at the kitchen table to go check on the girls in the school room. When I returned, I found that they had a great time ripping them up and Josiah had managed to write his name on the "to" side instead of the "from" side. Which is quite funny to me, because he did the same thing last year, which is why I made sure to include where to write their name in the instructions I gave them :)
