Pic of front door

It's not really a room in our house but it leads into our house and right now it's covered with Christmas cards still! If you sent us a card it's on the door...we stop and look at them every so often and think of YOU! OH and Susan your card will make it on the door in about 2 minutes as soon as I get off of here...thanks for the card!

A day in the Wedemeyer homeschool

Today is a busy day for us! The kids took a class on Stranger danger this morning and what to do in case of emergencies...great ideas and they both did awesome!

Then at 1pm we went to Freedom church for a Roving reptiles was so cool. The kids loved it just check out the snakes, alligator, and many turtles and lizards. This was our first activity with the Heritage homeschool group and they were all so friendly we really enjoyed it. We are also in Heartland homeschool group but they didn't have coop today...usually Makenzie takes a painting class, a sketching class and they both take a PE class.

Now, we are headed off to Iowa for Grandma Wedemeyer's 90th birthday party!

Happy Birthday to Kinley, Connie and Jennifer

We got together with the Wedemeyer side of the family to celebrate Connie's( Feb 5th) and Kinley's(March 5th) and Jennifer's(March 5th) birthdays. Anyway we had good food and good family are some pics! We haven't seen Kinley since Christmas and she's really grown and is crawling!!!
Also, check out the pic of Makenzie and Katelyn...Makenzie is reading her a book...I thought it was too cute!

Happy Valentine's Day!

We were planning on going to a homeschool Valentine's party today but the kids and I are still not feeling that great so we didn't go! Instead we had a heart shaped pizza from Andolini's for dinner and Kevin brought me flowers...roses and my absolute favorite flower TULIPS! The kids each got a new webkinz from 2 people who love them dearly (mommy and daddy). Hope your day was full of love!
