I am truly blessed in life.

Blinded me with Science

Monday, November 21st, 2011

Today we had another class at the Science Center. The subject was like CSI, though I forget the exact name. There was a crime scene and each class had different types of clues to determine the culprit in The Case of the Missing Goldfish. Since Miss Daisy still wants me in class with her, here’s […]

Little Disney fun

Today was our annual pre-Thanksgiving get together at my aunt’s house. I do look forward to it every year and think it’s a lovely tradition. The cousin I was closest to growing up has 2 kids so it’s nice to get the next generation together as well. All in all there were around 2 dozen […]

Another mission

Tuesday, November 8th, 2011

We went on a field trip with our park group today down to San Juan Capistrano on the train. Our first stop was the San Juan Capistrano Mission which is Orange County’s only mission- as every single piece of literature is eager to tell you.

Not for lessons, but these are the build-your-own crazy straws we bought at the Tech Museum.

This is Tabitha’s lapbook on the Gold Rush.

Lastly, Tabitha was really intent on building a mission. Her activity book has instructions for a model of every single one and she had it […]

Road Trip, Day 3- On the way home

Thursday, November 3rd, 2011

Today was time to drive home. First we visited another mission which was across the street from our hotel. Mission Santa Clara stands on the Santa Clara University campus so we had to walk through the college to get there since we wouldn’t be able to park. This one is basically their church with no […]

Road Trip, Day 2

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2011

Today we headed to one of my favorite places in the whole world- The Winchester Mystery House. My mom took me there many times in my life and Chris and I had been once together, but the kids had never been. If I could just be let loose in that house for 2 days I […]

Road Trip!

Tuesday, November 1st, 2011

So Halloween night Chris left for a business trip. In general I’d rather not stay home without him if I can help it, plus I still wanted a trip up north to make up for the cancelled one during puppy-rama. So at 5am I packed the car, grabbed the children and headed up the 101.
The […]
