The younger kids decided to play castle. Their costumes were very amusing. For instance Garrett is wearing a tinfoil crown, a gamblers vest, and a girls shawl. I think it turned out pretty good.
The whole royal family. Kacy is the Lady's maid. Princess Emily, Prince Edmond, King Mightus, and Queen Guinevere
Queen Guinevere changed dressed after Princess Emily got tired of wearing this one.
I didn't get a picture of Zach and Shea who were playing criminals.
Jenna and Andie Carroll have now spent almost a week here. They are loving having big brothers and sisters. And of course we are all loving having a lot of little sisters. Today they are helping Kacy make cookies.
They also enjoyed helping her clean the dishes :) They were very committed in licking the bowl
Garrett is getting bored of them doing girl stuff.
So he and Gabe decided to have a sword fight while they were waiting. That was very funny to watch, that is until Gabe got hurt.
We started doing the Bible bee this year. We are all really enjoying it.
Zach has really jumped into the memorization
The boys looked up how to make a Lego car launcher. That's what they were doing while they were waiting for the rest of us to start
Garrett's copy of 2 Timothy.
Zach's copy of 2 Timothy.
And Rossella's copy of 2 Timothy.
Everyone including Gabe is working hard at it
For the last 6 months or so we have been planning to Home-school another family. We have been so excited to start. Today is the day before they are to come Zach and Kacy went down to the fix a saddle for the horses, so the girls could ride tomorrow. While they were down there Kacy ended up jumping off of a hay bale and sprained her ankle really bad. Today is also Daniel and Rossella's 18 wedding anniversary. They went on a date all day in Daniel's truck.
We went to a dance. If you want to see the movies of the dance you could go to this link: http://vimeo.com/shannonranch. This is a picture that Rossella took before the dance started, while the Shannon family was teaching the beginners how to swing dance:
