Cub Scouts, Bugs, The Lion King, & Mitosis/Meiosis Cupcakes -- My Week in a nut shell

This week has flown by without many pictures to display.

I have 2, since my camera has been sleepy most of the week. 

No wonder why.....it has been pretty busy.  

Let's go backwards, since Friday is more of a day of rest. 

Today the kids and I went to see The Lion King!  About 20 years ago, one summer (that is insane to say...20 years ago)...I coached the 10 & under swim team for the Sunset Swampers.  I took all those kiddos to see The Lion King when it came out. 

Probably one of my favorite Disney movies of all time and well, I love the soundtrack.  So, when I saw that it was coming out again in the theater I decided that this MUST be something I share with my own children.  Not only those 10 & unders twenty years ago! 

So with popcorn in hand, drinks, and skittles my three young kiddos and I experienced The Lion King together.  I would peek over at their faces while watching and loved the expressions on their faces.  Eli's giggles, Hezekiah's funny faces when they talked about "love," and Maggie Beth's snuggles since she sat in my lap the whole time.  

Thursday we went to Homeschool Fellowship.  We learned about how bugs communicate and how God designed them to protect themselves.  We made some walking stick bugs, the kids have also been collecting bugs for a bug collection (above is pictured what they have caught thus far)......we shared that with CSHF too.

Wednesday Hezekiah got his shirt for his Cub Scout uniform.  This is his first year and he has been working hard on accomplishing tasks in his book.  Doesn't he look so handsome!
  I also created cupcakes to take to my BCC class.  I had the students create Mitosis/Meiosis cupcake stages with sprinkles, they had to make the chromosomes.  I was not too sure if college students would care much for creating, but they did and they were funny making their stages of meiosis or mitosis.  I did not get any pictures, but they did with their phones, IPADS, or whatever crazy things they have out these days.

Somewhere in between the midst of these busy days, the kids got school work completed, breakfast, lunch, and dinner were served, there were baths taken, and I am sure there was disciplinary actions taken. 

All in all, this has been our week.  Sorry, it has been busy, but I was sure Grandma and Papaw would love to see Hezekiah in his uniform!
