I am happily married to an amazing military man who spent 9 years enlisted and is now an Officer in the US Army. We have two amazing boys who are not so little any more! They still infuse every moment of every day with creativity and energy, and make my life an adventure.  I was educated at home, and am now teaching our children - second generation homeschoolers! I try every day to become more like Jesus Christ, and to love like HE does. If you want you can try and catch me at bethylovesandy@yahoo.com

Green Eggs and Ham

 This week was Dr. Seuss's birthday. I meant to do something special to celebrate, but it sort of got overlooked. Our only celebration was a few small attempts at working out rhyming for ourselves. The Titanic was, surprisingly, fascinating for a 2nd grader - so I didn't stray too far from our previously picked subject of interest.
 However, I did remember a Seussical moment we had just a few months ago... and some pictures that I never shared with you.
 What could this be? Why, Green eggs, of course! 
 This stuff looks disturbing.
 Questionable.
 Horrifying!
The big boys decided that apparently it isn't that bad.
Maybe even "finger lickin" good! 
But Zion was never convinced! 

This Seussical event was only 4 months ago, but looking at these pictures is almost frightening. They have already grown so much. Cole, their friend who was visiting that night, was recently here to visit again. 
These handsome men are growing faster then I can keep up. 

Green Eggs and Ham... 
Would you eat them when you're seven?
What about when you turn eleven? 
Could you eat them with a fish? 
Would you eat them on a dish?
Could you, would you try a bite
Could you, would you? 
You did! Alright! 

 The things they are willing to try - this is such a wonderful age. I am doing my best to give them the ability to try interesting things. From Green Eggs and Ham, to petting a Hissing Madagascar Cockroach, to reading about Alexander the Great. Such a wonderful age! 
 I just have to grab it with both hands - while somehow keeping a hand free to take pictures for Daddy, so he can experience it too!  One day at a time.                 
                                                                          Blessings,

That looks so disgusting. And even moreso to me because a while back...a year or two even, my mother in law made green eggs and ham for the kids. And on the way in the house after we picked them up...she puked them all over the sidewalk...YUCK!
