Jonathan & Stephen's Birthday (31 for 21..day 28)
Jonathan and Stephen's birthdays are one week apart, Jonathan's being on the 9th and Stephen's on the 16th. They are 4 years and 7 days apart in age. Since Stephen's second birthday they have had their birthday party together. In the past I would make 2 cakes and we would have 2 themes.
This year was a little different. The boys had a safari theme, one they both could agree on. It was much easier for me too :) My my boys are into Webkinz, so that's were the theme came from. They play zoo, Vet, take safaris, fight the animals (a boy thing) and pair them up in teams for football, baseball, and soccer. Got to love imagination! I bet you thought they liked them because of the website. Well, Madison does he doesn't play with them to much. Truth be known Amanda and Rebekah love the website, they get on it a couple times a week. They like to say the boys want to, but I know differently.
Another reason I think the boys are enjoying the animals is to due to the fact that we are studying about animals in Science this year. We are loving Exploring Creation with Zoology 3 . It's a wonderful in depth study of land animals of the 6th day, written with a Biblical worldview. I have learned as much as my children. Off to do todays lesson :)
