Look who is 13

Its hard to believe 13 years ago, I welcomed a sweet lil guy into the world and chose the name Austin!  He is such a blessing to Jesse and I.  We are so proud of the person that Austin has become!  Happy 13th Birthday Austin Michael Swartzentruber~ We all love you very much!
Austin loves to play soccer- that is his sport!  His favorite colors are RED, and PURPLE.  His favorite food is STEAK (from grandpa Bills cows) with A1 sauce! :)  He likes IU basketball, and Colts football! He loves ANIMALS of all kinds, and wants to rescue all of them and keep them... YIKES! 
He is really proud that he made A/B honor roll this year with the Connections Schooling Program.  He was close to getting all A's!  This really makes Jesse and I proud!!

Austin's schoolwork

I am thankful that on weekends my husband will help out with our schooling.  On Friday, Austin had a math portfolio that he was to turn in today.  He had to draw a blueprin of our kitchen and convert measurements.  Jesse and Austin sat down, and Jesse explained the directions while Austin measured out everything.  Then he drew this!! 
I am so proud of Austin and his hard work that he is putting into his schooling.  Hailee too!!  They are both doing awesome at connections!  Hailee is on the A honor roll, and Austin is on A/B honor roll with a goal to get all A's by Christmas break!!  Its alot of hard work, and dedication but its paying off!! 

Christmas List

Do you have a Christmas List?  Or a wish list?  Jesse and I don't exchange gifts, we usually just get something we need or want.  Well this is something I really want!!  :)  Do you have a Ninja Blender?  I am thinking it would be great to have.  I have went through two blenders and now I have the cheap Magic Bullet version and I think its on its last leg...  So I am thinking this will be my next investment.  Can't wait to make my shakeology in this blender!!  :)  What is on your Christmas List?

1st grade Art Sculpture

Hailee had to do an ART sculpture for her Art Lesson...  She had to make her own clay using flour, water, salt, cream of tarter, and veggie oil...  She did a great job! Then she had to create a animal sculpture and she chose a PIG..  :)
