Desert Animals Lapbook

We finished up our study of desert animals before we left for Florida. However, I just now got it all put together in the lapbook and took pictures. Caleb had so much fun, and we'll be doing more of these every few weeks. I got all of the information for this lapbook here. They have some awesome lapbooks available. If you haven't checked them out, then do so...it's worth a look-see.

A Week in Pictures...

We are back from our trip to Florida to visit with the Neil family. We had lots of fun and made some great family memories. Rather than type up a play-by-play, I'll just add some captions to the pictures to give you an idea of how much fun we had.

One thing I didn't capture though was Caleb losing his first tooth. Yes, he's lost two teeth, but the dentist pulled those. So, this was his first lost tooth (without assistance). He actually lost it in the pool, and it was a chore trying to find it, but Brian and Laura finally did...RELIEF! Now, on to our Florida fun...

Hunter and Micah playing at Laura's house.

Look, it's a Star Wars character...oh wait, it's just Micah.

Look at those three silly and handsome boys.

Tina was an AWESOME babysitter, and she even said so herself. LOL!

Caleb and Brian looking for seashells. We didn't get to play in the ocean because there were some big waves still because of Hurricane Bill. But it was still fun just being there.

Some of the wave action.

More wave action.

Look at all that sand...he was covered in it.

Micah playing in the sand.

He had a pretty good time.

Caleb and Brian coming back from collecting shells.

Micah wasn't sleeping so well, so we opted to try letting the boys sleep together. This was the first time EVER for that...it worked super well.

Driving into Walt Disney World...we chose the HOTTEST and MUGGIEST day to go.

Driving into Magic Kingdom.

My three boys on the ferry boat ride over to the park.

Micah was loving the water in the camelbak.

Caleb and Brian in front of the park.

Micah and Brian on the Jungle Cruise...still drinkin' that water. :)
