August is the busiest month for us...always.  Last month before we're in school full throttle.  We've been doing math, spelling, journal and writing still all through summer.  Yup...one of those moms. Keeps them focused and out of trouble with each other.  Boredom only leads to arguments here at the funks and you're not allowed to even say the word here!
I did a few projects when the kids were gone with Dave at Dadz camp.  I wrapped Liv's bed in fabric and it turned out great.  It just took a lot of fabric and double sided tape and I ran out of fabric.  She was fine with it so we just left it. Now it's coming lose so we will have to hot glue it now.  I'll post some pics when we get it all fixed.

I also took our old dry erase board and painted it with chalkboard paint and added some happy pom poms and added this to her wall of fun.  She seems to take after me in every way, including keeping and collecting everything.
All the kiddos school books are out and organized for this fall and ready to go.  I am so excited for them to start and have a daily routine.  We love home school!!

Our chrysalis hatched and look what we have...

Oh yeah...super excited we've been making our gluten free bread 2loaves at a time.  We finally found a recipe we all love.  

love this little guy..sunshine on my counter.

army men and battles overtook my  counters(miah took these)

this is a terrible picture but it was a cheesecake Jonah had made that was gluten and dairy free and it was awesome.  Dave didn't care for it but everyone else loved it.  There was 2 cups of cashews, 1/2 pound of zucchini and no sugar or artificial sweetner in the whole darn thing.  It was fun and very time consuming to make but worth it!

Nacho bar for dinner was a big hit.  We made a homemade cheese sauce that rocked the house.  So so good!

Odin and Jonah wrote Lucas Films and they scored a ton of loot and nicely typed personal letter to each of them. 

too much going on to write more lately...hope you're all enjoying the summer!
