Our Latest Shenanigans...

We went to a birthday costume party. I flew in on my goose. Can you guess who I was? Beside me is the Lady of Shallot, Queen Susan of Narnia and Mary Poppins! In front of me is King Peter of Narnia, Lady Arwen, another Peter, a cowboy and a ballerina.
Very fun. Very, very, very fun!


  1. Sounds like lots of fun!

    I like the impromptu chainmail!


  2. Nice costumes, and what fun! Did you get funny looks as you were heading out from your home to the Birthday party, or was the party at your home?

    Thanks for stopping by the Booksncoffee-haus!

    It's always nice to know that you like to have fun, too. :)

  4. Oh how fun! Dressing up has always been one of my favorite things to do. I'm looking forward to throwing dress up birthday parties for my daughter!

  5. You guys are too much fun! :)

    Can you please specify which Children's Bible you use for your Bible readings in Year 1? Just curious...

  6. Stacy, it is out of print. We love this particular one. It is called The Children's Bible and is published by Golden Press. It is what my parents read to us as children. I found two copies at Half Price Books several years ago. I like the realistic pictures 0We don't like silly cartoon characters for Bible stories.) I want my children to know how serious and wonderful it is. For some of my children I read straight from the Bible using Penny Garndner's wonderful reference lists.


  7. Hi Lindafay
    You all look so authentic!!! I can only presume alot of fun was had!

  8. Were you Mother Goose?

    I'm really enjoying getting your updates into my email. I'm so glad I subscribed!


  9. Thank you so much for your incredible site - it is so helpful and inspiring to me! I have a couple quick questions about your Year 2 curriculum that I hope you have time to answer...

    1.) does "(rdr)" stand for an independantly read book?

    2.) I didn't see a few books from the booklist on the schedule - St. George and the Dragon, William Tell, North American Indians and Geoge Washington (I'm assuming this one goes somewhere around 23 or 24?) Any special weeks for these to go?

    3.) Are there any books you suggest for the Ocean Life 6 week study?

    4.) And finally, are "Aladdin" (from week 14) and "Viking Tales" (starting in week 16) two additional books to add to the booklist? (I see them on the schedule, but not the booklist)

    Thank you so very much!

    Many blessings,
    Chay Bigger

  10. Yes, I was Mother Goose! My unmatched socks were at my ankles and I had a basket with a babydoll. I kept slipping food from the table and stuffing it in my pockets. When the little ballerina beside me stared with wide eyes, I simply explained that I needed it to feed my goose. he he...

  11. Chay, I'll answer your question over at the year 2 booklist post.

  12. You all look so lovely... I can't imagine the fun you all had. The Lady of Shallot reminds me alot of Anne Shirley. LOL Very cute! Queen Susan is also very pretty...
