I am a work from home, home schooling Mom who loves her Kids...yep, I think my kids are great. You will find me: Knitting, cross stitch, embroidery and working with felt are things I enjoy for fun. I also love to decorate and find deep satisfaction in decorating my home with great finds and my handmade items. Gardening is one of my great loves, it like decorating outside!
This was absolutely amazing! I had been interested in the boy king since I was a child. The first time I heard of him was through Steven Martins song "Funky Tut." Seeing my interest my Mother got me a book about him for my Birthday. In Junior High school my teacher Mr. Boyd had been to Egypt and expanded my knowledge even further. When in Collage I wrote a paper on the Boy Pharaoh and got the highest mark in the class. And now as a Mom I am able to introduce my children to Tuts story. The presentation of the artifacts made them even more breath taking. Alex really liked the toilet seat and all the Gold. Trinity was drooling over the jewelery. I just was so excited to finally get to see Egyptian artifacts in person that I cried. Of course my children understood...Alex patted my back while Trinity kissed my tears off my cheeks. In the gift shop, we found a King Tut ornament for our Christmas Tree to remind us. And laughed for hours about the King Tut tissue box where you pulled the tissue out of his nose.
Later on since I filled there minds with wonderful sights and knowledge I decided to fill there bodies with junk and we hit the Varsity. Where we filled our tummies with Chili Dogs, French Fries and Frozen Oranges. while chatting about all the wonderful things we saw.
We then headed over to Peachtree Street to get a look at Anubis and to get a quick hello from Dad. His building was right on the corner where the Giant statue stood Gard.
I wish I could have taken pictures but they were understandably not allowed.
I just had to share this lovely fall day with everyone.
The Kids and the day were Gorgeouse.
The Lighting under the maples made me take pause in my yard work. We raked up the brown leaves under the Oak to jump in. But the Golden Prince Autumn leaves remained where they fell. We layed on them to look up into the ones still on the Trees and started singing.

Third grade homeschooling brought allot of fun. Native American was a focal point of study this year. And being Cherokee made it even more special for me. So I searched for places to camp that could capture the history and essence of the Native American culture, just to add a bit of fun to our Native studies. Noccalula Falls in Alabama really made this come to life. Alex and I heard several different stories about why Noccalula jumped but in the end...alas...she jumped.
Some cute friends were made at the river...
...and at the farm
Worlds Longest Chicken
Alex couldn't pass this photo moment up.
This is actually two birds.
We laughed about this one for awhile.
It rained the whole trip. But we were able to set up camp, see the waterfall, ride the train, visit the farm, walk the gardens and play miniature golf all in between storms.
P.S. Do not stand too close to Trinity when playing golf. Her follow through is a knock out...just ask Alex.
What do you do when the summer heat runs you inside?
Well Alex and Trinity know exactly what to do.
Alex built this amazing tent and Trinity added the BLING! After all no home is complete without the accessories. Alex built this while I was making lunch, which turned into an impromptu tent picnic. We are still having fun and loving life.
After bellies were full, the mornings running around outside, little eyes started to get droopy. And a warm cozy nap was had.
It would be hard to pass by our house and not see us outside. Even in the heat of July. Alex always has his eyes open for a good find while weeding. Working in the yard comes natural for kids and I encourage it everyday. My kids can tell the difference between a weed and a plant as well as weeds you can eat. Trinity is quick with a hug and is first to get the water out and spray someone. A little treasure Alex found while weeding...some sort of cocoon wrapped in an oak leaf.
When ever there is a slight breeze in the air the kids are ready to get the kite's out.Trinity needs a bit of help getting it up in the air. But has allot of fun trying. Alex has been known to get them up so high that its just a dot in the sky.
