Read Recently: Hannah

Last night I was checking over Hannah's school work.  She just finished two books: People Can Change the World and American Leaders.  It worked out perfectly, as her school units tied into our trip to DC a couple of weeks ago.  And the end of each workbook is a final project.  Her final project in People Can Change the World was to determine how she would like to change the world, and then come up with a plan to support that change.  Hannah's plan is to make sure that everyone has shelter.  She is going to contact leaders around the world, and get them on board with her plan of everyone having shelter.  Then she's going to go to builders and get them on board with her plan.  According to Hannah, this will make the world a better place because everyone will have a nice warm house, and everyone will be happy.  As a leader, she needs to be able to build good communication to help accomplish her goal.

Seen, not heard: Riley

She's got a new thing.  She comes out of her bedroom, after we put her to bed for the night, with her unicorn pillow pet covering her face.  She walks into the living room, looks around (with the pillow still covering her face) for a few minutes.  Then she turns around and walks back to her bedroom.  She never says a word.  I'd love to get it on video because it is hilarious!  She's also started blaming Joshua.  For everything, to include lots of things that have nothing to do with Joshua, like going to bed.

Heard Today: Hannah

Hannah made a family coat of arms.  She was telling me what each of the symbols mean.  Then she asked if I thought that sounded like our family.  Then she said "I was going to put stubborn but I don't think they have a symbol for that."

Hannah completed 2.  She prefers the lower one.  

Without any further delay, here is our Coat of Arms, as designed by Hannah.

The blue stands for loyalty and truthfulness.
Green stands for hope, joy and loyalty.
Dog stands for loyalty.
The lion stands for courage.
The cross stands for Christian sentiments.
The sun stands for glory.  

I'll take that.
