January Mom's Nights

 
We have an awesome Mom's group and I don't always post about it because I rarely take pictures but this month I did!  We have a twice a month Stitch and Bitch, one for Breakfast and one at random places.  This month we went to The Chocolate and I had the yummiest cake ever! "The Husband" was delicious!
 
 Cards Against Humanity is never a bore.  Oh the laughter! I captured some of our crazy combinations~


 And then we had a lovely dinner at Mi Ranchito.  They have a Vegan buffet on Friday night so our vegan friends were able to feast!
 Megan ordered the biggest plate of food any of us had ever seen...so we had to capture it!

So so good!

Can't wait for next months fun~
 

Service, Curiosity and Play



 We decided in December that this was going to be a year of our unschooling group giving back.  We went downtown to the Homeless shelter and we were able to feed nearly 100 people! It was heartbreaking to have to turn people away when we ran out of food so hopefully next time we will have many more families bringing food!
 Willow was quite moved by the experience.  I am so glad we are doing this!


Soup, chili, corn bread muffins, bread and butter and casseroles!


 I hope we made someone's day a little brighter~ Then we were off to play!


 It's always fun when friends ride in the car with you!

 The Curiosity Museum is a favorite for sure!
 Thanks Hollie for getting pictures...I was feeling so tired...




Lot's of games of cops and robbers~

 Spotting's of the teens happened on occasion~
















 Rowan and Kaia decided to get soaking wet!



 So much fun!
 It was a great day! But it didn't end there...Zackary came home with us, Brixton went home with Koda and Rowan went home with Trexton! It was his first time to go to a playdate without me! He had "a million times fun" he said.  Thanks for the fun Tina and Hollie!
 
He fell asleep just before midnight telling me how awesome his day was...

Another awesome day being an unschooler~

Clark Planetarium

 
We went to the Planetarium to see a couple of movies and the check out their new exhibits and play place~
Rowan and Kaia saw Accidental Astronauts while the rest of the gang saw Extreme Weather 3 D~
 
 Exploring all the new and old exhibits...so cool!
 

 




 They have a lot more interactive displays~





 



The play place was a hit with Rowan!




 Photo Bomb!




 Exploring Jupiter's moons~



 
 These were so cool! You entered commands and then the rover would follow them~



 

 Tiny pieces of dry ice moving and swirling around...almost like tiny bath bombs exploding!
 
 "I want to be an astronaut mom!"


Another great day to be an unschooler~
