Homeschooling happiness :)

Just a quick post on one of my favorite times of our school day....Handwriting time.  I love seeing the three boys all working around the table on the 'same' thing :) As soon as I say "ok boys...handwriting time" Tot comes running from wherever he is and needs his handwriting right away! The older two are not as enthusiastic about handwriting ;)

 Captain on his cursive..
 Rex on his manuscript..
and Tot on his letters :) (He takes it VERY seriously!)

 Is there a 'Love' button I can push!  So sweet!

All Saints Day 2013

Finally posting our wonderful All Saints Day party!  Every year I say it was the best one yet :)

Captain - St Thomas More

Rex - Blessed Jose Luis

Tot - St Juan Diego

The boys had a blast!  We added some new games this year and the night was wonderful.  We began with Mass for the Holy Day on All Hallows Eve, then had a yummy potluck.  Afterwards we always do 'guess the saint' then the litany of the saints...

Some of the games...

 ***always a favorite!!

 Tot couldn't hack not grabbing the doughnut!

 Rex's face looked like this the rest of the night :)

 St Peter's fishing booth (candy on the end).

'Practicing the virtues of the saints" - different little activities to do at each station...(each one had a sign, such as "Clothe the naked like St Martin de Tours" , 'Give drink to the thirsty like Mother Teresa" with a pitcher and water)

 "Give money to the poor like St Nicholas"

 "Help build the church like St Francis"

 "Feed the hungry like St Elizabeth of Hungary"

Tot couldn't clothe the naked, so he just was hugging her :)

 St Anthony's lost and found...

One mother did a wonderful jack o lantern activity with the kids....she compared the process of carving it to the process of being sanctified....clearing away the filth, filling with God's light, etc :)

...and Tot ended the night with St Maxmillian Kolbe's glasses on :)
