FREE Beginning Sound Cards: The Very Hungry Caterpillar

We are working on letter sounds and more specifically beginning sounds in our house. Last week while covering The Very Hungry Caterpillar unit, I created a few beginning sound cards to go along with it. Obviously it doesn’t cover all the alphabet, but it does cover the letters and items you here in The Very Hungry Caterpillar. I have created a color and black and white version. Beginning Sounds

Patterns of Evidence:Exodus Review & Giveaway #PATTERNSOFEVIDENCE

History is one of our favorite subjects and Biblical history ranks towards the top in our house.  While we believe the Bible is true, I’m often faced with questions from my oldest son. Not that he is doubting the Bible, but feels he needs more information than he’s finding. Patterns of Evidence: Exodus Read the rest of this entry »

Our family has pizza night at least once a week. If it were up to my boys, I’m pretty sure pizza night would be seven days a week with a few lunches even thrown in.

Our Week In Review….

This week hasn’t been as crazy as last week, but it was still a great week..

 

We kicked Monday morning off with a well child check-up for Davis. Everything checked out great and he has finally started growing.  His weight still stays in the 50 percentile based on their charts, but his height has went from 35 percentile to 65%. I could tell he  really shot up this summer, especially when he put his knee socks on for the Color Run.  What used to reach his knees, didn’t even come close. Hard to believe he is in the 3rd grade already!

Rule in our house is..you can play with the counting bears, but they have to go back to their home when finished. I have been completely shocked that over the course of three years, we have only misplaced one Counting Bear!!Counting bear Read the rest of this entry »

Ball Canning Can-It-Forward Day #CanItForward

AsTheyGrowUp.com received product to facilitate this review. We give our honest opinion of products. Some post may also contain affiliate links

Canning season has finally arrived and it’s been pretty busy around here. I’m always amazed at how everything..and I mean EVERYTHING starts all coming in at the same time and then seems to stop producing at the same time. This leaves us canning, freezing and enjoying veggies for a few weeks. Of course I’m always a little sad when the plants stop producing. It’s hard to beat fresh from the garden vegetables.canitforward Read the rest of this entry »

Grains…to eat them or not. It’s one of those things that is entirely up to each individual, but did you know that Health authorities recommend that adults eat 48 grams or more of whole grains daily and that children should eat a minimum of 40-48 grams?  I will be the first to admit that I have to pick and choose which whole grains work for me.  I’ll also admit to the fact that my kiddos get pretty close to their recommended daily suggestions and most days I’m lacking big time!
