Surprise... Creativity is Awesome!

I again am so amazed with the results I am seeing while homeschooling my bunch! I have been trying to play catch up on my laundry and I also received an amazing call from Sarah(AKA Mighty Mom)so I stepped away from the kids to visit in the back, and hang the laundry.

How great it was when I hung up! FoUrTh is working on a patch quilt and she quietly sat and sewed while I was on the phone. Second is working on a film and spent part of the time creating story boards and taking photo shots of the boat that he is using in the movie. Third spent the time polishing off 2 chapters in a book that he is writing.

I let out a cheer when I saw how they all worked independently on their projects. A few times during the call I tried to reign the kids in to complete the Preamble work, when I was unaware of how well they were doing.

I am so proud of them, and I got out the ice cream and served up sundaes!!! It is so neat to be a parent, especially on days like today!!

Oh and First called and is coming a home this weekend...so I will have all my babies together for a day:)

Sarah-
My daughter is so cute...she loves the Raiders(like First) and so the flip side she is going to use a remnant of the Raiders fabric.

She is delicate and tough all wrapped into one!!

Third is writing a science fiction of sorts book, and loves Eragon, and Eldest, which were written by a home schooler!

And aside from never totally seeing the floor in the boys room, the house is fairly clean(for 3 kids, a dog, a guinea pig and 2 adults who ....)But when Bill and I ran out to make some copies we were called because one broke a dinner plate.

I just save the broken plates. Soon I will have enough to tile a small outside table!!! So I guess that is my lots for less tip:) When something gets broke, how can it be salvaged?!

This is so nice to read - to know that one day my children may be able to occupy themselves while I am on the phone. Out of all of them, the 8 month old seems to be the only one who can occupy himself - he just watches the other two play, run, jump, create, twirl, flip......and the list goes on!! :D
