Homeschooling Adventure...

So our homeschooling adventure has already begun, ever since Barend was born. I think, besides pictures and updates, I'm going to turn this blog into our homeschooling adventure blog :) What we do as a family to help each other learn. It's going to be fun and interesting and I'm looking forward to the great amount of learning we'll be doing over the extent of the rest of our lives.

A couple of pictures...





Barend wanted me to, "Hand me a wrench mommy! I need to fix the chair." And if I had sound for Juniper...she has thing grunt thing going on. It's between a growl and a grunt. Cute, but she does it alot now :)

"My eggs are raken."



Barends sentence from today. We were outside the other day and I had the snowshoes on and the next day when I was playing with Barend I told him I had to stop because my legs were aching from walking around in the snow. Today, as Barend was getting down from his chair after lunch, he said, "My eggs are raken." and proceeded to point to his knees and legs. That was the only way that I got it without asking him again. My little guy :)

Here's a picture of me and what my sister in law says as, "Barend with hair!" : ) And one of Barend back in August.

My little girl...

Is almost pulling herself up to a standing position. She does stand on her own, but she tends to go "timber" unexpectedly. When she's on the floor she tends to stick her butt up in the air alot. She's getting so big.

New arrivals...











So we got a dining room table :) No more eating on the floor during breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Juniper has got her fifth tooth, so many more to go.

Pictures are: Barend and Dad working on putting together the table and chairs, Barend waiting on the timer so he could play "Uncle Mark's game" (PS2 Star War Legos), Juniper going at great lengths to get cords to chew on, Barend taking a picture of Juniper going to great lengths to chew on cords, and Barend and Juniper being Barend and Juniper. Enjoy!
