Another GREAT resource...

As a special needs homeschool momma I need to cater my "classes" to best help my learners excel.
  I scour the internet often to locate just the right worksheets, crafts and resources that will allow me to do just that. 
One of the resources I have used many times is this one: Dads Worksheets
 This site covers math from Preschool - 12th grade. 
What I love best is the fact that there is always an explanation or help section to explain, step by step, for people like me who don't love math. 
It's been a real blessing!

However, if you aren't a homeschool parent please don't feel left out....
Dads Worksheets are also for:
*moms and dads who feel their kids need extra math practice
*teachers who need materials for their whole class
*kids who want to master their math facts

 Another blessing is that this site and ALL (last count was 10,319 worksheets!) are FREE!
 You read that right....FREE! 
What's not to love about that?! 
Go check them out

One of the Few....

I am always amazed and humbled when people contact me after reading my blog. They like what I write, what I stand for and want to get their idea, product or service into the hands of my faithful readers. Honestly, I've turned down countless of the above opportunities because I didn't feel it meshed well with what I believe. I also need to believe in the product or service whole heartedly if I am to share it with others.

I was approached several months ago by Jason Ladd about reviewing his book. I read a bit about him on his website and knew that his book would definitely be worth the review. I have not been disappointed!

He has an amazing story.....Marine Fighter Pilot, Iraq War Veteran, Author......but my very favorite of his titles is "daddy".   We downloaded his audio book and the kids and I listened to it as we did errands one day. We were captivated! He really goes into life in the military, the intense moments, the missions and ties it together with coming to Christ. So, so good!

Today is his book re-launch day and I invite you to check out his website and his book. Here's his website link.

His goal is to help Christian parents as they prepare their children for life in the secular world. But truly,  this book will help anyone searching for truth and give them the skills they need to stand firm in a world of apathy and disintegrating values and morals.

We highly recommend Jason Ladd and "One of the Few"!!

Sick!!


The stomach flu made its' way through our home and it was rough! It actually started with Samuel and went thru the ranks one after another. At one point, I was holding two buckets as both kids were puking at the same time. Too much information?? Sorry but these were the facts of our life for over a week! Did I ever mention how very, very much I hate vomit? Or that I have a terrifying fear of the stomach flu after Sean was hit with it so severely years ago, passed out, hit his head, and ended up in the hospital? Um, yeah. Let's just say, this week definitely had me talking to God ALOT! I am SOOOO glad it's over! I seriously had a permanent vomit smell in my nose......YUCK!! Thank you God for healthy bodies!

I have a million of 'em....

I'm sorry to put so many adorably cute pictures on my blog of my baby, Sammy T. But he is just so photogenic! And besides that he LOVES to ham it up for the camera, as you can tell. :)
I mean, I could fill up a book with just pictures of him and all of his cuteness.  He never met a camera he didn't like. LOL!





Now these next pictures are Samuel's selfies. LOL! He was, unbeknownst to me, playing with my phone as I was in the shower one morning. He didn't do too bad and since these pics he has taken quite a few more....of my closet doors, my floor, my bed, his feet, my desk, etc. :) 
Kids these days...they can figure out technology like nobody's business. 
No worries, mommy set a lock on her phone. 
Sammy has to ask now to take his selfies! :)





And this one.....it's just perfect Samuel.

Hey there little cowpokes....




 Took the kids to the Farm Show this year. I love the concept but it gets so incredibly crowded that in years past it didn't necessarily seem worth it but we tried it one more time. The kids love going. They love animals so much and of course it's very educational too. :) They were able to watch a rodeo that had disabled participants in it. So cool! I couldn't resist the extra cute cowboy hats and the price was perfect for our large family! 
Aren't they adorable?!

Rockin' the puzzle.....



My girl LOVES puzzles. She spends countless hours each day working on her newest one. She was blessed with bunches of puzzles at Christmas and now has a wide variety to choose from. She does any amount of pieces but her favorites are the 1,000 pieces. She can rock one of those babies out in a little over a week! The 750 piece ones take her about 3 days and the 500 piece puzzles she can knock out of the park in about a day and a half! She started on a giraffe puzzle after this above one and has only a couple more pieces until she's done. She is such a forward thinker that she already knows which is her next one to work on.....the London one with Big Ben in it. :) 
Way to go Kyalynn!!

Cornea Abrasion


Because life around the Lease household is so boring and dull (HA!) our little Samuel had to spice things up. 
smile emoticon
 He has a "significant cornea abrasion" in his left eye. As the eye dr. was examining the damage he realized the "offending foreign object" was lodged in his upper eyelid. Well of course! We do things right around here! LOL! 
The object (a piece of wood!) was removed and little man is on antibiotics for inflammation. 
But the best part is that  although Samuel is semi-verbal he very clearly said "steady, steady" as the doctor put the big machine up to his eye and was looking into it. :) 
The boy is such a riot! 
He's my sweet spicy little guy!



Happy Monday everyone!
