Pumpkin Patch 2011 ~Updated




***Updated with pics***
The boys and I went to the pumpkin patch a while back, and what a great
time we had! There were many new things to do and try and play with, so the boys
were nearly beside themselves trying to figure out what to do first. We ate hot
dogs and cotton candy (two huge no nos at this house except about once a year)
they went sliding down the hugs slides on burlap sacks, frolicked in the
sunshine and came home happy with their choice of pumpkins. Derek liked the
Hamster Wheel, the slides and the tricycle track the best.
Pat picked the tractors that he could climb up and pretend to drive, the slides and the ducky game, mostly because he likes to get wet.
David liked the hook on a wire that you had to swing up onto a hook (and he was quite good at, as well) the slides and the gerbil tunnels. I thought the tractor tire tic-tac-toe game was quite
clever and I also enjoyed the Mystical Grove (a shaded tunnel that has misting hoses in it...get it? MYSTICAL??) Anywho, at the end of the day, we came home tired, a little sunburned and a lot happy with our day.

Simple Woman's Daybook

For Today~ November 13, 2011
Outside my window...
it is overcast as cool. 60* is our high for today. Yes, I know some of you have snow already. Just keep in mind that when it's 70 at your house, it will be 110* at mine. Cool is relative : )
I am thinking...that it has been WAY too long since I took part in this great post on a regular basis.
I am thankful...that we get to enjoy EXTRA family for Thanksgiving and Christmas this year. SO excited about that!
From the learning rooms...we are wrapping up our curriculum studies at the end of this week and will be enjoying 'homeschool lite' until after the New Year. My hours are just too long and too late for this season to *teach* in the traditional sense, so we read, watch educational videos, play games, make gifts and crafts, and just enjoy the season together.
From the kitchen...potato soup simmers in the crock pot for dinner tonight. Hot tea is cooling on the counter and chicken is thawing in the fridge for something tasty later on this week.
I am wearing...brown knit capris, a coral t shirt, ankle socks and tennies. Hair is double french braided, I can't get over how quickly it's growing back out.
I am creating...secrets for Christmas, a clean house and a completed "Fall Into Reading' List
I am going...nowhere for at least 24 hours. HURRAY!
I am wondering...why bad things happen to good people. I know it's the age-old question, but sometimes it gets me down. I don't know HOW people manage to keep their spirits up when they don't know the Lord and how good He is.
I am reading...a huge list of books, but mostly, How To Be More Than a Good Bible Study Girl, curriculum books, blogs about green living, sewing and organization. Also Thanksgiving lists, meal plans and recipes. Mmmmmmmmmm
I am hoping...to try a few new recipes this week. Mostly, pumpkin goodies. Like pumpkin spice lattes, scones and whoopie pies. Also a new recipe or two before sharing at the Thanksgiving table.
I am looking forward to...the holidays, a visit from long awaited company, and a break from school.
I am hearing...Transformers 3 and little boys giggling and wrestling together. (kinda wish I could still hear Amy Grant singing the hymns, shhhh, don't tell!)
Around the house...we are getting ready for a new week to begin with a fresh, clean house. SO< to that end,

  • Dishes
  • Laundry
  • LR tidied and vac'd
  • Bathrooms swished and swiped
  • Bedrooms picked up and tidy

I am pondering... more Christmas gifts, some extra cleaning projects from "31 Days to Clean: Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World" and how rapidly my boys are growing up right in front of my eyes.
One of my favorite things...autumn
A few plans for the rest of the week...a full week of school before the break, extra sleep whenever I can squeeze it in, tutoring, coffee with Karen and menu planning for the next few weeks.
Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...

Now THAT's what a Saturday afternoon should look like : ) Have a great week, everyone!

Fall Into Reading Question #4


Aha, I finally found question 4. Here it is : )
How large is your personal/family collection of books? And where do you keep them?
Oh my, I don't even want to answer this question! SO so SO many books! I'd have to say several hundred books, not counting curriculum for Home School. >.< And they are everywhere! I have a large bookshelf in my room, 5 shelves high, stuffed to the gills. I have several boxes of books in my rooms also, where there is no room for them. Each of our boys has a bookshelf in his room stuffed, and a few here and there laying about in their rooms as well. There is a basket full of 'seasonally appropriate/school subject' books in the LR to encourage reading ON TOPIC during book basket time. Add in the Library basket that normally has close to 50 books in it each week and we've got, (Dare I even say it?) Too many books. As if there IS such a thing. And actually, now that I think of it, we've got several Rubbermaid Totes out in the garage full of books that never made it into the house when we moved here several months ago. Yikes! AND, there are 2 bookshelves in our DR/schoolroom with our current homeschool materials. Oh dear, I have even more than I thought. But, at our house, books are friends so you can never have too many friends, right?? SOMEDAY, when my boys are grown and gone, living their own exciting lives, I'm going to have a room dedicated to just books, a comfy chair and a snuggly blanket. Now THAT sounds great! However, between now and then, I probably ought to get rid of a few since I already have enough to fill a room, a large room in fact. Thanks for the nudge in the right direction!

Fall Into Reading Question #7


Is there a book that has had a tremendous impact on your life? One that made you look at life in a whole new way, or caused you to completely change something in your life?
Oh my, so many choices! As a Christian, I would say first off the Bible has completely changed my life. The wisdom, love and grace in those pages offers it's gifts to all who would read it. Aside from the Bible, books by Elizabeth George have caused me to change some of my thinking patterns and actions towards my husband and family. Books that make me laugh, either in general or at myself are always great. It's important to encourage your sense of humor, it helps deal with the 'bumps' that life brings your way. Life Made from Scratch made me want to become a Homesteader, which would be a rather LARGE change for us. But baby steps can take you where you want to go : )
**Bonus Question: How is your Fall Into Reading coming along? Are you on track? Ahead of schedule? Falling behind?**
Hmmm, not really sure. I haven't looked at my actual list in a while. Let's see if I can find it quickly. Oh good. Here is my list, in no particular order : )
DONE~My Father's World curriculum books. I know that required reading, but it
still needs to get done, so I might as well make it more fun, right?? Included
with that, I'll be reading the recommended books that come along with Pat's
lesson plans. *the total of these books will be counted as 5*
Not Yet~I bought a large box of books off of eBay to compliment our History of the
World book 1. There are about 20 in there, however, most of them are less than
5th grade reading level, so I can probably polish them off in just a few hours,
so I'm only counting them as one. ; )
DONE~I won a gift package that had 2 magazines in it, called Ladies Journal (Not
to be confused with Ladies HOME Journal) and Where Women Cook. Can't wait to dig
into those!
DONE~Also in the package were 2 books called More Than A Good Bible Study Girl
(looks great) and Made From Scratch which is about homesteading. : )
The Debt
CURRENT~World Magazine to keep up with current events with the BIGS for school. Love
this magazine, keeps us up to date on everything happening in the world, and
with a Christian worldview~ LOVE IT
A few Christmas books, like A Christmas Carol, Christmas in the Big Woods,
The Gift of the Magi, The Night Before Christmas and such. Plus the children's
books that they love so much.
DONE~Fireman Dad, Love Finds a Home, Doctor Right, Rancher's Promise, Family by
Design, and The Cowboys Homecoming
Hmm, I'm doing better than I thought. I've also read several books from the library that I forgot to write down, so I guess I'll have to say that I'm doing well, I'm ahead of schedule and that I'll be able to add several more books to the list through the next 6 weeks. Yeah me!

Fall Into Reading Question #6


When it comes to fiction, are you more of a “plot person” or a “character person”? If you had to choose, which concept would win out when it comes to picking and loving a book: plot or character?
I think I would have to say that plot is more important simply because a plot that makes no sense or is just dragging along is rather un-fixable, whereas a poorly fleshed out character can be imagined while the books goes on with the plot. You can even guess that the character will develop as the book continues. Now, this is not to mean that I don't like good characters, it's just easier to "fix" them in my head versus trying to rewrite the whole book due to a poor plot line.

Come on over and join the Fall Into Reading challenge over at www.callapidderdays.com It's a hoot!

Fall Into Reading Question #5


What about you? Are you dedicated to reading every word (even the boring ones)? Or have you been known to skim over some passages?
Ummm, may I please plead the 5th on this one? As a parent, and especially as a teacher that insists my students read every last word, even the super boring parts, I want to say that of course I read every last word, including the dedication, the appendix and the table of contents. However, that would not be truth, and truth is more important that skimming over a few paragraphs, right? RIGHT. So, in honesty, I have to say that sometimes if the writer goes off on a tangent, or starts describing the scenery in flowery terms or worse yet, if it's a historical fiction book and they spend 3 pages setting the scene for a gory war battle, I skip that and move on in a hurry. Generally speaking though, I plod through even that, lest I miss some tidbit that might be relevant later. : ) Another great question!

Fall Into Reading Question #3


This week, we get a little techy:
On what devices, if any, do you read books? Or are you strictly a “physical book” reader?
I am an all physical books, all the time girl. Real, actual, paper, physical books. I can do an ebook once in a while, but I don't have a nook or a kindle or anything like that, so I get tired of sitting at the computer and staring at the screen, so even then I tend to print it out, bind it together somehow and then I've got a 'real' book anyway : )

He's Working Again!!


Praise God for answered prayers! After being off of work for June and 1/2 of July, and then from mid August through November 1st, Dan is back at work today! It's right here in town, with lots of people that he's worked with before and he is excited! I am so glad for him :) Thank you Lord for providing for our needs in the meantime, and continuing to do so through a job for Dan.

There were many new things to do and try and play with, so the boys were nearly beside themselves trying to figure out what to do first.

Happy Birthday 'Shua!


I'm not AS late with this one, but still tardy. Happy 23rd Birthday 'Shua! We didn't get to spend the day together, of course, but we did have a nice chat. I am so proud of him and Lauren doing so well up there in IL. Working hard, loving each other and enjoying their families up there. It's good, even if I do miss them terribly. Hugs to you, Young Man. You deserve every bit of happiness you can find. I love you!

Wordless Wednesday



Oh my gravy, this made me laugh! : )

Happy 14th Birthday David!







I know, I'm crazy late, but David turned 14 October 3rd, the same day that Mambo had hop replacement surgery. We skipped school, rested after camping and just hung out together as a family. Friday Game Night was our actual celebration of his birthday and we let the good times roll! Mama made graham cracker cake, friends joined us and David brought a few extras home from the gym. We had a ball!! He received some very thoughtful gifts and has enjoyed them all. The money he has been saving for this weekend at the Renaissance Festival at Young Park, he wants to buy a sword (oh my heavens!) Just a few pics as he's getting "too old" for birthday silliness. *sigh* He's my boy, not into the pomp and circumstances, and is much more concerned that everyone else has a good time. And we did! Happy Birthday Son!

Fall Into Reading Question 2

How often do you re-read books? What does it take to make you re-read?

Oh goodness, I DO love to reread some of my books, over and over again. At my house, books are friends and you wouldn't just have tea with a good friend and then never do it again, would you?
Although, let's be honest, some books are a one time read, and some should have never been read at all, but most are worth at least a few reads, and some never grow old. For me, this is what makes the cut over and over again.
~ The Bible: NEVER grows old, and the Lord uses it to teach me new things each time I read it. As 2 Timothy 3:16 says, "All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness. AMEN and amen.
~Anything ever written by Janette Oake, Al and Joanna Lacy, Lori Wick, Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins, and several other Christian fiction writers. Just makes the story come alive and become part of you.
~Informational books about parenting, family, homeschool, homesteading, marriage, and the like.
Books that make me laugh.

This is in response to a series over at www.callapidderdays.com Come on over and join us as we Fall Into Reading

Fall Into Reading Question 1

How much do book reviews influence your decision to acquire and/or read a book?
~ Not much I suppose. I don't know those people writing them, so their opinion means little to me. And quite generally, I don't even read them, so even less influence. I read the blurb in the front page or the back and decide if it looks good or not.

Camping is the BEST. THING. EVER!!

A few weeks ago, we took the boys camping for the first time. Yes, we've slept in tents in the backyard, in the LR, in our bedrooms, and even in friends' backyards, (and for a short while, Patrick 'lived' in one in the house) just never in the wild. D and P were just about old enough to take 'real' camping when we were expecting DT, so we had to wait another several years so he was old enough. Anywho, we've been saying we want to go for a while and just haven't gotten around to it. SO, we just up and decided to go as a fun way to kick off David's birthday. We packed and drove up over the Organ Mountains, and drove way into the Aguirre Springs Park and found a cozy little campsite away from the other people there, and made camp. 2 tents, a newly formed fire rock ring, lots of collecting firewood, and tons of schlepping bags and coolers up a hill, we were ready to do some camping. Later that night as we sat around a fire of glowing embers, while clutching gooey S'mores and laughing together, I thought to myself, "Now I know why people pack up, leave town and go camping. Because THIS is a good as it gets. No electronics to distract from conversations, just family, beautiful nature and plenty of time to enjoy them both." The boys just loved it and are already pestering about when and where we can go again. They played capture the flag, followed hiking trails, chased bugs and lizards, laughed and whispered in their tent, got to eat HOT DOGS, and discussed the best way to make the perfect S'more. Dan and I enjoyed the quiet night without computers, TV, garage projects, or dinner dishes getting in the way. There really IS nothing like sitting around a campfire laughing and chatting with those you hold near and dear. I could wax eloquent about it for far too long I am sure, but I'll just suffice it to say that we are hooked and will definitely be doing it again soon. I'll add some pics for you to enjoy and you too, can feel like you went camping with us, without the lack of running water part : )
Blessings,
Kristy

October Catching Up Post

Goodness, has 3 weeks gone by AGAIN without a single post? Phew, life gets busy here at the Man Crew house sometimes and living life is more important than blogging. Anywho, just a quick recap of the last few weeks. Let's start with...

GREETINGS FROM SUNNY AND WARM NEW MEXICO. We're still enjoying upper 80s and low 90s temps most days, but truly enjoying low 60s for the overnight hours. Great weather!

  • Dan is still looking for work, although he's staying busy working on projects with friends, helping people move, hanging out with the boys, and enjoying some extra sleep here and there.
  • David turned 14 on the 3rd of October. Where DOES the time go? He enjoyed his birthday game night, and we went camping the weekend of his birthday.
  • Pat is getting so tall and is already looking forward to his 13th birthday that is rapidly approaching. He's really missing James and Titus each day now that they aren't coming as often. His drawings are getting better, and he's loving our weekly trips to the library. He always checks out his fill of cartoon books, plus 1 educational book (per my request) 2 movies and 1 CD so he can get to know some new music. He's such a creature of habit (little like his mama that way)
  • Derek is really liking school. We're making crafts, writing letters and sounding out words. So. Much. Fun! He's busy as usual with riding bikes, enjoying game night, jumping on the trampoline, chasing his brothers, playing with the cat, and just being him : )
  • I finally got that rest I've been wanting. Spent last Saturday evening at the ER with what I thought was appendicitis. Turns out, thankfully that it was *just* a viral infection that was making my lymph glands in my abdomen swell and mimic the symptoms of appendicitis. So I got a lovely script for some Vicadin and spent the next two days laying on the couch drooling on myself. Dan and the boys took excellent care of me, cleaned the house and kept everyone fed and happy so I could rest. The next few days were led mostly from the couch as well, and I've now got 'real world' experience that school can be done from the couch, instead of just a hunch : )
  • I also talked just this week with a dear 'old' friend (like from high school days) that I recently re-discovered on FB, and she called this week and we laughed about old times, where life has taken us and how it rarely becomes what we think. GOOD TIMES, what a wonderful time of catching up it was.
  • My parents are COMING!! They've been saying for years that they're going to become snow birds and stay the winters here in NM, but it's just never panned out. This year seems to be the year, and even though it's still 2 months away, I find myself stopping at least once a day and thinking aloud, "They're coming! They're REALLY coming!!" Not only for my own enjoyment of course, but for the kids, they miss PaPa and Grma so much, and can't wait for them to get here.
  • Game Night lives on. Some weeks we have 8, sometimes 20 and no matter how many we have, it's always fun. Uno, Farkle, Skip Bo, sometimes Chess, Bananagrams, Fluxx, Phase 10, Spades and a few random others grace the tables. We eat veggies with dip, chips with salsa, bean dip or cheese goo, cake if it's a BIRTHDAY Game Night, and laugh ourselves silly. It's great!

I think that's it for major updates, and I'll post some pics soon. Thanks for the love.

Blessings,

Kristy and the Man Crew

SCORE!! Thanks April!

Just wanted to say thanks to my friend April Rogers who helped me score a SUPER great deal a few weeks ago. She shared a link to a page (that I can no longer remember the name of, sorry) that shares good deals from everywhere so other Mamas can get a great deal also. At any rate, the deal of that day was to order composition notebooks online from Wal-Mart, pick them up at the store and pay the bargain price of 40 cents per 5 notebooks! I ordered the max of 12 sets and after a few frustrating moments at the store where the person behind the counter didn't seem to understand that I was supposed to be picking up 60 notebooks, not 12, I actually ended up at home with 65 notebooks for $5.12! So thanks April, I've got enough notebooks to last until Derek gets to high school. Hurray!!

Fall Into Reading 2011


It's that time again each year as the weather gets cooler, days get shorter, life is following a more predictable routine (at least in theory) and there is more time, and more desire to curl up with a warm drink, a cozy blanket and travel the world courtesy of a good book. So, make your list and join me as I link up with the friends over at www.callipidderdays.com/2011/09/fall-into-reading-2011-start-reading.html Pick a few books, or a pile, or whatever you think you can manage and join the fun. The party started on Sept 23 and runs through the end of December. Post a blog with your list and then link up to see what everyone else is reading, what adventures they are having and such. Here is my list, in no particular order : )
  • My Father's World curriculum books. I know that required reading, but it still needs to get done, so I might as well make it more fun, right?? Included with that, I'll be reading the recommended books that come along with Pat's lesson plans. *the total of these books will be counted as 5*
  • I bought a large box of books off of eBay to compliment our History of the World book 1. There are about 20 in there, however, most of them are less than 5th grade reading level, so I can probably polish them off in just a few hours, so I'm only counting them as one. ; )
  • I won a gift package that had 2 magazines in it, called Ladies Journal (Not to be confused with Ladies HOME Journal) and Where Women Cook. Can't wait to dig into those!
  • Also in the package were 2 books called More Than A Good Bible Study Girl (looks great) and Made From Scratch which is about homesteading. : )
  • The Debt
  • World Magazine to keep up with current events with the BIGS for school. Love this magazine, keeps us up to date on everything happening in the world, and with a Christian worldview~ LOVE IT
  • A few Christmas books, like A Christmas Carol, Christmas in the Big Woods, The Gift of the Magi, The Night Before Christmas and such. Plus the children's books that they love so much.
  • Fireman Dad, Love Finds a Home, Doctor Right, Rancher's Promise, Family by Design, and The Cowboys Homecoming

I think that's it for now. I'll add to this as I finish books and decide if I have more time. Fall into Reading with me!
Blessings, ~Kristy~

Just a Random Picture Post

Sometimes, ya just gotta post some pics. No big story behind them, just random life snapshots. So enjoy.
It's amazing what passes for entertainment around here sometimes, LOL! Pat was being a robber with an mandarin oranges mesh bag on his head, what goose!
Dan has been polishing up a storm for his gas pump project. SO SO shiney!
Story time before nap time. Derek isn't 'really' reading yet, but he loves to read a story to Mr. T before he goes down for a nap.
And here is Mr. T, sleeping with the fishes. : ) Yes, I know I'm a dork. I can't help myself.
Sand Art. Derek has been looking forward to this project for quite some time. And we FINALLY made it this week, hurray!!

Pretty Pretty


We are always so grateful for 'real rain' here in the desert. You know, not the kind that pours down for 2 minutes and is dried up in 5. But a REAL thunderstorm, complete with pouring rain, lightning, thunder and in this case, enough to flood the street so the boys could sail a toy boat down the side of the road. Better even than that, a lovely rainbow to remind us of God's goodness. Wow, just wow.

Catching Up With Us MeYeRs

Greeting from sunny and still HOT New Mexico : ) Actually, it's cooled down in the past few weeks and is only getting into the low 90s most days now. What a relief, right?? Just wanted to pop through, say hey and catch you up on the activities of the Man Crew from the past few weeks.
~Dan is still unemployed, but remains the busiest unemployed man I know. Building fences to keep in a friend's doggies, refurbishing a set of old fashioned gas pumps with another friend, helping people move, refinishing doors for the gym, driving and fixing the dune buggy, teaching a shop/auto repair class for David and Patrick, and keeping us all laughing in between all those activities.
~David started high school 2 weeks ago and is not sure whether he likes it yet or not. He's a bit overwhelmed by making so many of his own choices, I think. But we are almost done putting together his syllabus for this year, and he is looking forward to digging in. He's starting to gear up for competitive season with gymnastics, and is putting in long hours of practice each week. His routines are starting to come together and he's quite pleased with his own progress, as are we.
~Patrick is just starting his 7th grade year and is not sure how he feels about not having classmates this year as David is using a different curriculum this year, and James is no longer joining us for school. We have just been 'warming up' this past week or two, practicing our math facts, brushing up on our geography skills, writing dictation sentences, reading to Derek and Titus, and partaking in Daddy's shop class. He grumbles but I think is glad for the return of a more regular schedule. : )
~Derek is about to start first grade and we have spent hours each day reading, playing games, and watching educational videos, along with much outdoor play. The birthday bike is a fave and gets many hours of use each week. In fact, he's the only kid I know that can manage a jump off a ramp on a bike with training wheels, LOL! He's my biggest helper in the kitchen and LOVES to help with bread, pizza and chopping veggies.
~I always hate posting things about myself. I'm the same, LOL! Boring. Working at home, working at the gym, working at Kohls, driving the Mama taxi, and enjoying my family.
That's about it, I guess. Nothing much else to report. Karen is settling in well at her new place just around the corner from us : ) Jodi is off camping with the boys this weekend, Dad and Mom are off gallivanting across the countryside (and Praise the Lord for Dad's health to allow that again) and all the news from Mike and Kelly's house sounds like everything is hunky and dory. Oh, Flat Stanley is here for a visit, so we need to take him out and about to show off our great state!
Hope everyone is having a great, super blessed week! Call, write or come on by and see us sometime! We'd love to have you!
Kristy and the Man Crew

Wordless Wednesday

Like Father, Like Son. Or at least some of the sons : ) Patrick, David and Dan at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, CO in April.

Hair cuts for the New School Year

Well, it's that time again. Time to cut off all the summer hair and get back to looking like we own a pair of scissors, LOL! All the boys were ready, at least right up to the time I actually got out said scissors :)




Derek, Before and After His Buzz Cut

Patrick refused to cooperate for before OR after pics, so this is the best I could do. He only got a trim anyway, so it's not much different, but he IS fond of his highlights



David was the one fussing for a haircut the most, but in the middle starting asking if I was cutting off all his good looks, LOL! What a goof, he looks good either way.
Well, I guess that's the long and short of it anyway, unless you're looking for a good laugh and want to enjoy this one...




Dan had been painting with primer all afternoon, this was the aftermath *giggles*
