This week’s featured blogger is Chris from Tales of a House Husband. Chris is a SAHD who homeschools his three children as well!

I enjoy Chris’ unique perspective as a homeschooling stay at home dad, although most of the time his perspective is not really all that different from most of the stay at home moms that I know, including my own. When all is said and done, he’s a parent who loves and enjoys being with his kids and doing the best he can for them!

Chris is also a fellow childhood cancer parent so I feel a little extra connection with him in that regard.

Please visit Chris’ blog where you will find curriculum ideas, organizational ideas, and recipes. Also be sure to visit his funny You Know You Are a House Husband When page!

Rachel has been home this week. I have to say that it’s really nice that Rebekah can drive down to the college to bring her and William home for breaks now!

This time she took Jeremiah along for the ride again and they stayed over night before coming home. That meant eating a couple of meals out. Always a good thing in Jerry’s book! However, apparently Chipotle does not agree with him!

I am overjoyed to announce that Rachel has now raised enough money to buy her plane ticket to China and have money left over for living expenses while she’s there this summer teaching English to nine and ten year olds!

We are all very happy and excited for her! She will be there in July and August. I would appreciate your prayers for her safety while she’s there! Thank you to everyone who donated to make her dream come true!

When Rachel was little I nick named her Rachel “Stewart” because she was always creating something!  During her last break home she began making a t-shirt bath mat for me.  This week she finished it!

I wish I had thought to tape her making it.  I put this you tube video in just in case anyone is inspired to learn how to make one too!

This is Rachel’s creation from this week!

Bethany Moments
Last Sunday we had no Flash Club meltdowns, but we did experience A Drama Filled Weekend of Another Kind, when Bethany got lost in the grocery store! Talk about having a heart attack!

Bethany doing the Hokey Pokey and working on her comfort collage!  Yes those bugs are doing what you think they're doing!

On bowling night for some odd reason Bethany couldn’t decide which lane to bowl on so she laid down on aisle 17 instead! After about fifteen minutes of this we decided to just leave, but surprise, surprise, she wouldn’t do that either!

The director of bowling told us to leave her there go on ahead to Walmart so we did! Of course we waited in the parking lot for a few minutes to make sure she wouldn’t come running after us. Guess what? She didn’t so we proceeded on to Walmart with much fear and trepidation.

When we returned to the bowling alley, Bethany was happily singing happy birthday to another bowler. She had been bowling and behaving and was just as happy as a clam!

The girls gave Bethany a facial this week!
