Happy Birthday Dr. Suess!

March 2nd is Dr. Suess' birthday and I wanted to celebrate the day with the boys. We began the day by reading Green Eggs and Ham and then I made green eggs and ham for breakfast. As I've said before, Jackson is a picky eater, but he ate all of his green eggs! With every bite he told me, "I'm just like Sam I am, momma!", it was adorable. And ever since he has been trying new food, telling me how he is just like Sam I am.

I wanted to read the boys The Cat in the Hat because I had a cute The Cat in the Hat project for Jackson. Apparently, we do not own a copy of The Cat in the Hat and I did not know it. I have several copies of many Dr. Suess books, but not that one. The boys do have a stuffed Cat in the Hat, so I used that has our inspiration. Jackson made 2 Cat in the Hat hats, one for himself and one for Austin. I wanted a picture of the boys in their hats, but Austin did not appreciate his brother making him a hat and he cried A LOT in every picture. It made me laugh a little... (the picture is blurry because I was laughing).

The last Suess activity for the day was reading One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish and making our own fishbowls. Thinking about it now, I probably should have made red and blue fish for our fishbowl, maybe next time. This is one of Austin's first art projects. I love that he's beginning to participate in our activities. (Sorry, I couldn't get the picture to flip the right way)

It's baaaaaaaaaack... The Nuffer Family Summer Camp 2018

Man, it's been awhile.  A long while.

The blog is baaaaaack! And so is the Nuffer Family Summer Camp!!!!!

The NFSC is going to be pretty different this year.  The big boys need to be challenged so much more than a few crafts and story books like when I first started the summer camp many moons ago.  With that said, I don't really know exactly what it will look like because I have to test the waters to see what interests them and what doesn't. My mom gave each of the boys a Little Passports membership, so we'll be using those in our weekly themes as well.  I have a preschooler, a second grader, and a fifth grader- needless to say, it should be interesting.  but no big deal, right?

Every day they'll spend their mornings doing some chores, spending some time outside, reading independantly, doing a little work in grade-level appropriate workbooks, doing an NFSC activity or two, and I think I'm going to teach the older boys to write in cursive. Phew!

Brian and Whitney get married!

Our family has been waiting for this day for well over a year!  My little brother, Brian, finally married Whitney a couple weeks ago.  Such a wonderful weekend!
I mean, how cute are they?!

The first night was the rehearsal, of course, but I didn't get many pictures.
I do have a fun little story, though...
Jackson was the ring bearer, and Whitney wanted him to walk arm and arm with the flower girl, Delaney.  But, he wouldn't do it.  I thought maybe it was because he didn't know her before that night, but no, that's way too simple for Jackson.  Jackson didn't want to walk down the aisle with Delaney because he thought if he walked down the (wedding) aisle with this stranger-girl, he'd be married to her!  bahahahahahahahaha!  That is hysterical!
Once we assured him that they would not be married if he walked arm and arm with this (super sweet) little girl, he was totally fine with it.
But look at their little faces.  And their little fists.  Hahahahaha!  This is t…

A Whole Lot of Random...

You guys know that my children are crazy.  And hilarious.  And random.
So here's a bunch of random moments from the Nuffer Nest.  Enjoy.
Sometimes, you just feel like Yoshi.

And sometimes, a tiny person steals my phone and takes 458 selfies that look just like this:

And sometimes, mom and grandma spend way too much time at Costco.

Other times, you smash your finger in a door and have to take a "quick" trip to urgent care. At least it wasn't broken.

And sometimes, life just gets hairy...

Other times, the Captain Underpants underwear you just got for your birthday has a cape, so you have to show it off by not wearing pants.

Sometimes, you're as cute as can be when you get a free apple at the grocery store.
(You guys, look at that little round belly- I just want to tickle and squeeze him!)

And sometimes, your brother helps you hang on when life gets tough.

Other times, they're there to give you a hug.

Sometimes, your future is so bright, you have to wear shades.
