~Before nap, Lydie wraps her arms and legs around her oldest brother. She looks up at him in tears and says, "Zack-see, sabe me sabe me!" (Jackson, save me...!) She is SO dramatic!
~When her cousin came to stay with us for the day, she really enjoyed being in charge (since she is a whole 6 months older). After Baby O left, the next day she kept asking, "Where's that baby I am in charge of?" We think she might be a little Type A. But even so, she does love to deliver a good kiss. Pictured above: The fashionista in her new vest and blazer with sunglasses and pigtails. And she and Baby O- in her favorite ballet leotard and Mardi Gras beads.

2. The art teacher chose Durer as the artist of the week. I became curious from the brief biography that she sent home and studied further. Durer lived during the Reformation and was a friend of Martin Luther. In fact, I think he painted his portrait. This man's talent was extraordinary. I am especially impressed with his woodcut technique. Here is an example.
I am glad to be learning together!

I'm telling you, these consignment sales are so worth it! Okay, I'm stepping off of my soap box.

Silly before the show, captivated when the curtain rose

My Jaybird was very disappointed when the Lego magazine promised a movie, but the movie did not come on as promised. We were very proud when he went and got a pencil and paper and wrote this letter all on his own. "Dear Lego Company, The movie didn't come on- The Power Miner's Mini-Movie. I really wanted to see it. What should I do? Please write back. Your biggest fan, Jackson"
Today we baked cookies to help our friend raise money for a mission trip to Russia. I have been praying for more opportunities to show mercy as a family. The Lord has provided.

We made a craft and chose an "adopted" grandparent from church for each family. Hopefully, we will all take the time to take our craft in person and have a nice visit, too. Mercy ministry is something that I wanted to incorporate more often into our home school. But, I seem to only take the time to do these types of activities with my children when we are with our home school group. I am thankful for the accountability.
Then we had lots of sugary treats! (Lots of pictures of preparation. Then I didn't have time to take pictures of our guests!) Happy Valentine's Day!

The tables were all beautiful and unique. This table had a "literary buffet" theme.
This table was very elegant.
This table had a Parisian theme. Glad I didn't choose that idea!
This was my table.
Fun was had by all!
