Our first Garden

Loved pouring and pouring and pouring the water! lol
Putting the seeds inside the pots.
Hmmmmm!  Which one should we plant....hmmm all of them!
Love getting dirty!
Yep!  More water!!!

My Aunt Sharon motivated me to start a garden.  So today Mee-Maw came over to help.  We had hot dogs and then planted.  Caden loved pouring the dirt into the pots and pouring the water. 

Big Machine Lapbook

Caden's completed Big Machines Lapbook
Counting Big Machines
Coloring the big machines.  I put the colors out and had him match the correct color with the correct color machine.
I held Caden's hand to write his name and then he wanted to do it...cute!

Last time we did a lapbook we did not have much success.  Caden wasn't too interested.  He also wasn't as involved as he was with this one.  He enjoyed this one much more!  I got this idea from this awesome site

Paper Dolls

In our book Miss Polly Has a Dolly it talks about Miss Polly taking care of her sick Dolly.  So we are learning about what sick is and who takes care of you when you are sick etc.  So Caden made a doll and our next step is to put bandages on her.   

Didn't Caden do good with the face???  I told him we forgot to put her mouth and nose and he said he wanted to draw it.

Cereal Necklace

Caden wasn't really into this activity so I helped so he could at least wear it around his neck.  He wore it for a little while and took it off.  Then I could not find it and got worried that Kelso or dog had eaten it.  Well he did eat it but thank God he decided to leave the yarn!

Ice Cream Cones

I cut 4 triangles for the cones and 4 semi-circles for the ice cream.  I numbered each one of them and told Caden that I had empty ice cream cones and we had to fill them with ice cream by matching the numbers to the correct cone.  
This activity really helped Caden with his number order.  This is his number order:  1, 2, 5, 6, (he's getting louder as he is saying the rest of the numbers) 7, 8, 9999999.  He thinks 9 is like saying 10 (you know the loud ending).   lol

Blake's Birthday and March of Dimes

All the kids ready to walk!  
We walked on Blake's birthday (2nd stroller to the left).
Me and the kids
Daddy and the kids
This is what babies do at birthday parties!  
Can you believe all these kids were born in the same year!  Starting from the left the twins born June 4, Hannah born June 2, Blake was born in April 26th, he was born at 25 weeks check out his amazing story, then Kensley was born on June 16th.  
There's crew again!

Grocery Game

This grocery week was a pretty good week.  I continued to save about the same because I still buy items that we like to eat on a regular basis even if they are not on sale.  You are supposed to buy certain items that are free or that are on sale and stock up on those items.  That doesn't really work for us because I have a picky eater that wants specific items, but I still save money. 
Coupon Savings:  11.50
Bonus coupon Savings:  2.50 
Kroger plus savings:  27.01
Total coupon savings:  41.01
Grocery balance:  138.63  

I also found some other ways that I can save a little more.  The Maynard Moment gives you all the deals from your favorite grocery store and gives you the coupon locations just like The Grocery Game, but it is FREE.  $5 Dinners gives you the deals for that week and tries to make each recipe or dinner for that night under $5.  I saw $5 Dinners on The Rachel Ray Show.  This website What's For Dinner? lays out a menu plan for each week.  I also realized I can double or even triple my coupons at my Krogers.  Why didn't I ask sooner...I will defiantly be doing that my next shopping trip.
