What's the name of that song......

I had a bunch of pictures to share with you guys about our day. I am having problems uploading the photos. I do not know if it is my computer or blogger. It did let me load this video though so you can see part of our day. The boys were given some money for Christmas and the package arrived today. They bought the set of instruments shown in the video. Which are these here. I think that they are really worth the money if you are looking for a nice set of instruments. They each got a new board game to. Sam really wanted this one to work on some math skills. Gabe needs to work on his reading skills so he got this one. The boys also got excited because they got a new cookbook to. We originally got this from the library and knew right away that we had to have it. All of this and the school work got done to. All in all not a bad day.

I do not usually have very many questions here but when I do I love to answer them. Kate asked what kind of needle do I use with the boys sewing. I originally started out with the plastic needles for them but that did not last long. They both now use regular needles. Sam does really well with his. He even uses the sewing machine. Gabe does o.k. with a regular needle as long as he pays attention, otherwise he sticks himself with the needle. He actually surprised me this week. I gave him his bean bag and told him to stuff it then bring it to me. That silly boy threaded the needle all by himself. He is growing up so fast. ;)

Well off to finish my nightly chores and prep for tomorrows lessons. Hopefully I can get pictures up later.
