Busy, Busy, Busy

We have had several busy days. It started Friday with going to Giggleberry Fair at Peddler's Village. We LOVE this place! The kids always have such a great time there. We met my parents and my sister and her son Sam. There is Giggleberry Mountain which has tons of things to climb around in and balls to shoot and toss and slides - it's just crazy! Daniel LOVED it! There are also games to play to earn tickets. The kids earned a bunch of tickets and turned them in for different trinkets. We actually get quite spoiled here because a friend of my mom's works here and she gives us the wrist bands to go into the mountain and on the indoor carousel. We only go once a year because we do not want to take advantage of her generosity. She will not take no for an answer! We are so blessed! Daniel especially loved the cotton candy that our friend gave to him!Saturday the kids went with Andy to Home Depot as they have a woodworking class the first Saturday of every month. They had a fun time building race cars. Daniel has been carrying his around ever since. That evening we went out to dinner with the Curry's. They were supposed to go out for a romantic dinner for their birthday's, but their babysitter got sick. So they invited us to go out with them to the Old Country Buffet. We had a coupon!! We had a good time as we haven't had a chance to sit and talk with them for a while.

The rest of the week we have been doing school and trying to get through things. I am struggling with trying to figure out if I am demanding too much of the kids or not enough. Matt is struggling to finish the assignments given and I am not sure if it is because it is too much or he's just unmotivated. I believe it is the latter. My next dilemma is how to motivate him. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! We continue to pray and trust God for the answers as to how we should raise our children. In the meantime, here are some pictures to see what has been going on!Sarah in the Giggleberry Mountain shooting at me with the ball gun!
