Don’t you go praising God on Sunday when you can’t praise Him on Monday when your clothesline falls in the mud.
Everything from pencils, to markers...tablest...bulldog clips (that were so cute!)...pushpins and lots more!
So much fun! AND, they gave us Chick-fil-A chicken sandwiches for breakfast, along with yummy pastries and muffins too! Gotta love that!
AND, if God didn't bless me enough with all of that, He also allowed my ticket to be pulled in the drawing (each teacher gets one when you pick up your freebie)--I won this very, cool electric stapler! woo hoo! Probably valued at about $35-40!
Take the remaining caramel and pour it over the cake. Then, I took some Hershey's syrup and squirted some of that across the top as well. (not in the original recipe--but do it--trust me!)
Then, spread a tub of cool whip over the top.
Take 3 Heath bars and chop them (we actually put ours in a freezer bag and crushed them with a rolling pin) and sprinkle evenly across the top.
Put in the frig for at least 2 hrs. and then EAT! YUM!
This will be me someday I hope! :)
We only got pictures of the worm, but there was also a crayfish and a perch.
He looks like he's doing brain surgery or something with the mask etc...LOL
For you Mom's who have not attempted this yet... a little advice:
Get the dissection instruction booklet!
The specimens never look exactly like the book says--the booklet helps!
If you get into the more difficult dissections--find an online dissection that you can watch as you do it
Our kids have done: worm, perch, crayfish, cow's eye, sheep's heart, fetal pig and who knows what else! :)
I will admit though, my hubby helped Bri through her Biology, Bri did Advanced Biology with a friend, and Bri helped Bradley with his!
What is my job in all of this you ask?
I am the specimen purchaser, and have the VERY important job of cookie baker.
What does baking cookies have to do with dissections you may ask?
(Baking cookies during dissection masks the icky smells of course!)
See him on the fence? Brad is pointing to him.Here's his anxious parent. I believe they are Chipping Sparrows.
The tomatoes above look like a lot of tiny grapes--but they aren't. It's the angle it was taken. This was a grocery bag full of amish paste tomatoes!
Brad has had a very, very good year for cantelope!
The peppers are coming on like crazy now! (Great for salsa!)
Brad's going to try and sell some of his excess produce.
Below they are armed with their Badminton racquet's!
Our pics include some of the 4-legged family members too. :)
This one is a little hard to see...the kids are playing badminton with a glow in the dark birdie...fun!
These pics are from Sunday. :)
There were times when this game got very loud! LOL
We are so grateful for the wonderful times shared with friends this weekend!
Our thanks to our hosts!
My sister loves her to pieces!
She sat with us while we played cards. :)
Here's Bri holding her and fooling around...
She had a fun day...but boy did she crash when she went home! LOL
