Mr. President

Drew is studying the life of Abraham Lincoln in his Heritage Studies right now. He recently wrote a report about him and did a great job of it too. Today he made a hat (or I made it). It didn't turn out all that great...looks more like a Halloween costume than Abraham Lincoln's hat, but Drew was pretty excited about it.

Recently Ben has been searching for famous quotes of former presidents. There are some good ones, but one of my favorites of Abraham Lincoln's is, "If I were two-faced...would I be wearing this one?" Haha! He was obviously known for being rather homely.

Our day was fairly normal...busy with school, cleaning. The house was mopped today...and already a layer of dust has settled. Tomorrow will be one week without rain. I hope it rains soon. I'm beyond ready for it. The kids continue to enjoy Rex and we go searching for flies every day to fatten him up. He didn't fare as well today as yesterday. As soon as the rains fall, all sorts of creatures will come out of the woodwork. Oh, and still no sighting of the 5th mouse. Maybe it snuck outside while the door was open. Yeah, I'm sure it is wishful thinking on my part...but you never know!

Have a great night!!

Pin It!


  1. He looks super cute with the hat! I love that quote from Lincoln - it's one of my favorites!

  2. He looks so cute in that hat, and so grown up. That's my boy!!!
