My Famous American

Last week Dylan had to give his first oral speech on a famous American of his choice.
He chose George Washington. Dylan loves history and he loves acting, so this was a great project for him.

He and Daniel did all the research and then Dylan wrote his speech. 
I think that he got a little nervous once he was standing in front of the class, but over all he did a great job and made a 100! We are so proud of our funny, smart little boy.

Apple Orchard Field Trip

My baby girl had her very first field trip a while back. And by a while, I mean over a month ago.
Shame on me for just now writing about it!

She was so excited  about her field trip. I could tell she felt like a big kid. She looked and acted like one too.

 

I love this picture of London with one of her favorite friends, Lucy.
 


We learned about all sorts of apples and the orchard. This is a hoars apple.
 
 
London listened very carefully as she learned all sorts of new things.
 


The highlight for Miss Priss was picking her apple and then getting to eat it with some honey. 
 
 
 


I lots of fun watching London learn and discover new things.
I can not believe my baby is big enough to have a field trip.

Princess and Knight Party

If love is in the details, then Honey, this party was FULL of love.
Jenn and I had so much fun crafting and pulling together all the details that made this party extra cute.

Since this was a Princess and Knight party, it only made sense to turn the entrance of the house into a castle.




Once the guest entered the castle, they were welcomed with some royal garbe.



Also in the entrance of our castle was the royal gift table.


 
 
This is is the royal sitting room. The big picture of the two of them is an engineer print that we had done at Lowes. It was crazy cheap (I think $3.00) and was such a cute touch! 
 
Here's the King's Tavern where we served our food buffet style.

 
Our handsome Knight had a dragon cake and our beautiful Princess had a castle cake.
 
 
 
All of our little Princesses and Knights ate dinner in the Royal Banquet Hall.


Our Knight table:

And our Princess table


Jen and I spent about an hour gossipping and bejeweling these goblets. We loved them!

 
 
 
 Of course our Royal pair needed Birthday Thrones. 


Outside, we built a castle just the right size for all the small royals. 
 
And this was the treasure found during one of our party games, a treasure hunt. Princesses received pretty little bags filled with jewelry and princess wands and knights received swords and shields.

 
I think this was my favorite party I've ever thrown. Now... How do I top this next year?
