Little Break

Hey guys.  Just wanted to let y’all know that I’m taking a week off from blogging.  I’m planning to take an exam to add a certification to my teaching credentials and I have to, like, you know, study.  Check back next Monday and I should have something up.  🙂

“Snow Day” activities

Y’all, I live in Texas.  Not Alaska!  We are not meant for cold weather and I kind of lose my mind a little when I can’t send Raptor outside to play.  I’m happy to report that this activity kept her happily occupied for an hour.  ::bliss::



By the way, I totally copied this from a friend.  I had Raptor lie (lay?) down on a piece of butcher paper and traced her.  Then I gave her some markers and stickers and let her have at it.  She was thrilled.

My initial plan was for us to create a town for either little cars or her my little ponies, but as soon as she saw the paper taped down she asked if we could make another outline.  Well, sure.  🙂


This is the third year we’ve been to this and it is just as cool every time!


It’s basically like walking into a giant multi-chambered bubble, which is to say AWESOME!


They play kind of trancy music and lots of people try to meditate.  Raptor tried her hand at some yoga.  Tree pose!



There are, how to describe them…  thin slits at the tops that let in colored light.  The different rooms are different colors.  It really is magical.



If you ever get the chance, you must go.  We did have to wait an hour and a half to get in, but the kids were happy to run around the grounds and play while we waited.



Project Life Week 27

Y’all, this is the third spread I’ve finished this week!  It must be some kind of record!  Since I just finished doing October Daily, I didn’t feel the need to tell a lot of “stories” with this spread.  In fact, RaptorDad questioned why I was even doing it for October.  The answer?  I’m waaaaaay too OCD to leave out a month.  🙂

Week 27 A blogSo I included the pictures that were still cute, but hadn’t made the cut for October Daily.  I also included zero journaling so this page came together super quick!  I’d love to knock out the rest of October this weekend, but I think we all know I’ll get bored soon.  😉
