Yes! I'm making a mirror for the bathroom. Aren't these colours wonderful? Incase you're wondering what that little bag of white stuff is...... it's tiny beads! Wouldn't want you thinking I rely on any sort of substance for the creativity to flow!! hehe

I just have to sand and varnish the wood , and then it will be totally complete!
TanziPanzi did her first proper craft project today. It was looking SO pretty..... and then I think she smudged the black eye paint onto the wing. She said, "I decided to make a duck with a broken wing."
I suppose she's using artistic licence at the age of 4! (hehehe)
Good night friends...... I'm off to dinner at my favourite restaurant with my favourite man!

She ended the blogpost with this prayer which had me in tears.
There is no higher calling than being a wife and mom. You have entrusted these precious lives to our care and what we impart to them while they are with us, is our offering to you. You have not called us to be 'cool', to be liked, or to make our children happy. You have given us the responsibility to shepherd their souls. If they are great in sports, academics or worldly success, but do not know YOU, we will have failed. Help us to live what we proclaim, to be strong enough to discipline consistently when we are weary, to lavish them with love (as You do to us), to be quick to forgive and to admit when we are wrong. Help us to continue to grow in our love for the Savior and for Your word so that we can live an example that will draw them to salvation. We will never be perfect but we can be faithful and that's all that you ask. Lord encourage our hearts with the knowledge that You have the power, ability and desire to see us succeed in this endeavor. May we raise up a generation of young adults with a heartfelt passion to serve You. As mothers may we look forward to hearing; well done, good and faithful servants.' Amen"
What a wonderful reminder and encouragement of this high calling that we as mothers have!

We actually had alot of fun experimenting with different veggies and fruits to find out which one produces the highest voltage and amperage. We found out that 2 lemons and 1 potato fire up a small calculator and 3 lemons make a buzzer buzz! In his presentation WizzKid had to include a flip file with the Scientific Method. His focus question was "How do the power outputs of different fruits and veggies compare?" And the conclusion was."Out of the four vegetables and fruits the potato produced the highest voltage. However, the lemon produced the most amperage."
This pic shows his jubilation at completeing the Science Expo Presentation & Interview. Yip, they had outside judges come in and ask them questions on their topic. WizzKid decided to end his Project with ...... "God created the first battery when he created vegetables . GOD IS GREAT!"

Today the bully was harassing a girl in CoolDude's class so CoolDude told him to leave her alone. With which the bully replied "You're a stupid Ass!" Cooldude then retorted with "No I'm not.... the person who thinks that is one!" When CoolDude was consoling the crying girl, the bully came up to him and said "I'm gonna kill you, just watch out!"
And this is a private christian school....... frightening! I would like to meet this bully in a dark alley and read him his rights! Roll on homeschooling!
