365 Joys- February 28th 2015

Today, we made sock puppets.  I'm not always a "yes" mom but I do try to be.  I feel like I say no to everything.  With Juliana being so sick we were watching a few Blue's Clues episodes to keep her distracted.  Well, "Steve" makes a very silly sock puppet early in the show and he makes a few appearances in other episodes.

We had everything we needed.  I sewed on button eyes.  Emilie had extra socks.  Emilie made yarn hair.  Nathanael figured out a way to put cardboard in the socks so the mouth had better shapes.  We had silly stories and plays the sock puppets were able to put on.

Everyone had a different voice for their sock puppets...

No, Dad and Michael and Benjamin did not participate, but they had other things to do.

Silly kids.

It was fun.  Jules was interested, too.

Ginny just photo-bombed.

The joys of homeschooling... how a workbook tastes to a 1 year old?

Yummy grammar and literature.

Yes, indeed.

I know the post from yesterday was soooo happy.

This is a very sick little girl.

However, it makes me happy that she feels safe and comfortable even in this position on our floor, and that her family lets her sleep.

The joy is just BURSTING out of this little girl's face.

She can be a superhero, too!

Liberty was all ready for scripture study and I snapped a picture.

Love my girls and their beautiful smiles!

(I love my boys too but that's two days in a row where my daughters are smiling so big!)

So happy to have THIS girl back in our house.

Emilie was gone for a week helping out family where their dad was traveling... their house is under construction, the house flooded, they lost power... crazy stuff happening and Emilie was there for some of the adventure.

We are so glad to have her back :)  most of the time, haha.

No, really, we missed her.

Juliana will survive  hugs from her sister.


We hope.


And Ginny, too.



(actually, Jules initiated this hug... it just ended up looking funny)
