This year Martin has been taking Karate lessons. He really enjoys it. This is a photo of an outside forearm block. If your wondering.... non of the moves he has learned is allowed to be performed in the home or on anybody he knows (specifically his little brother) . :-)

The boys had to make a car for them to sit inside of for drive-in movie night at Awanas last month. We used stuff we had around the house and came up with these. Martin drew all the webbing all around the entire car...it took a long time. I was proud of his perserverance.

Here are my two kings. My Mom bought this outfit for me to wear the night of the feast so I would fit the part. The boys made their own crowns and septors. The castle was a joint effort with the boys doing most of the work. Auntie Amelia made the king outfits the boys are wearing...she did an awesome job! This medieval study took A LOT of time, but was a fun was to learn and it created a lot of fun memories.
Martin gave a speech on the castle we worked so hard on. He wrote down on the scroll he is holding all the different parts of the castle and how it was made. He did a great job. We had another family here that participated in the feast. It was Martin's first official public speech. He did great. You can see that Luke is in the background inside the castle. He was Martin's helper during the speech...pointing out all the parts as Martin talked about them. Brothers working together...how sweet.
Let's eat!!!!!!!! No silverware was used during those times except for an occasional spoon. We used the traditional trencher for plates (bread hollowed out) and cloth napkins...paper ones were not invented yet. It was a really fun and messy night with lots of food.
