Everyday Light Life: March

Just a regular day in our lives- school and kids throwing fits and messes made and life lived...
Last week was our Egypt Unit. Vesper has been really interested in Ancient Egypt for about a year now and so we did an entire week of lessons about Pyramids (math) mummies (science) and the people and various customs (art). This particular day we learned about mummies! We read about them and dressed up like them and ate them for lunch! Don't be fooled, not every week looks like this, but when it's a subject I know they really enjoy, I try to make it fun and do a little extra. I even broke out the self timer and hopped into a few photos.

One particularly sweet moment happened while we were reading about the Egyptian Afterlife, Vesper and I had a good talk about heaven. She got really emotional at the thought of leaving behind her friends and family and princess toys- bless her heart!

As much as I love our beautiful old house, I'm glad the weather is heating up so that I can begin to photograph them in different settings again! We're looking forward to hikes and zoo trips and splash pad adventures... hurry up, Spring!

We start our school days with CosmicKids Yoga

 This is one of Vesper's favorite books. It's an Usborne flap book about Ancient Egypt

She got a little sad talking about heaven. It's so hard to talk to little ones about it in a way that's understandable... In moments like this, I'm thankful that there is grace, and there is a God that loves her even more than I do that will guide her steps...

She cheered right up after I told her we were going to dress up like mummies.

Grey wasn't interested in walking around looking like a roll of toilet paper, but he did think he big sister looked pretty funny.

At least one of these a day...

 Pretty Valentine's flowers still blooming, and little succulents loving the sunlight

This sums up my life:

Of course, there were mummies for lunch:

What my house really looks like on a daily basis:

And some outside play as the sun goes down
