Ladies and Gentlemen...

Tyler and Kaitlyn love to put on puppet shows! One day when we had completed our school activities for the day, Tyler decided he wanted to make a puppet. He began dashing around the house like a mad-man looking for glue, googly-eyes, scissors, paper, and anything else he thought he could transform into a puppet! Of course, Kaitlyn joined right into the middle of the fun.

When they were done with their creations, I was in for a BIG treat. A puppet show! Tyler is an excellent little speaker. "Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the puppet show!" The only thing we need to work on is to teach them the puppets are the only ones meant to be seen during the show, not the puppeteer!

Kaitlyn was right in the thick of the action. It's so neat to hear Tyler and Kaitlyn dialogue back and forth.

During these moments, I realize that homeschooling is soooooo much more than reading, writing, and arithmetic. It's about taking advantage of these creative moments, and letting your children express the wonderful creative people God made them to be!

I love your blog and your statement about how your home is your mission field and your family is your number one ministry. Your children are blessed to a have mom who understands this at such a young tender age. My dh and I did seminary too, those were "the years". Us ladies (pw) need to stick together. Thanks for sharing your life with me.
