|Maren, 3rd grade|
|Joshua, 1st grade|
|Nathan, obedience school|
seriously, this kid is everywhere
|ah, I love these kiddos|
In keeping with tradition (that we started last year), I wrapped the kids school supplies and stuffed them in their backpacks. The kids loved opening up new math books and science things. This year I bought a set of Magnatiles for our homeschool. The kids love them! I've been wanting them ever since I saw them at my sister's house a couple of years ago. They are fun to build with and the kids have been playing with them constantly.

(and yes, all the kids insisted on wearing name tags. goofballs)
I also bought each child one non-school related present. Maren got a charm bracelet, and Christopher and Joshua got angry bird "plush toys". Joshua keeps referring to it as his "plush toy" and it just makes me laugh every time he says it. I think he noticed because he said "that's what they're called, right?"
I love surprises
What's really fun is when you combine the magnatiles and the angry bird plush toys. That piggy is not safe in those towers I tell you.
