The 39 Clues – Book 4

When you first think of Egypt, what pops into your mind? For me, the first thought was – Pyramids! I have some Lego fans in my household so I suggested they build a Lego pyramid. For two straight days now Rhys has created all different sizes and colors. He has even started adding people to…

Chloe’ is 19!

I love these pictures because they show some of Chloe’s personality! Chloe’ can make you smile even when everything is falling apart and you just want to cry. She has mindfully sought to gain the gift of charity and has definitely been blessed with it. Chloe’ is fun, funny, laughs at herself, smart, talented and…

Food Art

Months ago we bought supplies to make pancake art. Nathan is amazing at art so I figured this was right up his alley. So we finally stirred up all the colors and made pancake art! We were a little wise though and did it for dinner rather than breakfast. Pancakes for eleven people takes a…

Learning in the Living Room

Mara is taking a Forensic Science class and her latest assignment was to create a crime scene and collect evidence. It was quite a transformation of the living room! (Rhys was a rather small Dr. Fisher but he was the most willing to lay on the floor and play dead.) She said in the future…

The 39 Clues Book 5

Book 5 isĀ  called The Black Circle. It felt really small compared to previous books but it was great! Amy and Dan head to Russia for this part of the clue hunt. For this book, we did a lot of research and watching videos instead of major hands on activities. It’s funny because I made…
