And the Two Shall Become One ....

Yesterday was the big day. My girl got married. It was such a magical day. Very simple. Absolutely perfect.

We had a little bridal lunch at a tea room before going to the church to get ready.

Kyndal did everyone's hair and they did each other's makeup.

Just before pictures we presented Kyndal with her "somethings". For 'Something Old' we tied her baby ring to her bouquet with a lace ribbon. For 'Something New' we counted her new earrings. For 'Something Borrowed' she was loaned an antique hankie owned by Collin's great-grandmother. And for 'Something Blue' we had all of the ladies in the wedding party write a little note to Kyndal on the bottom of her wedding boots with blue sharpie marker.

As Kyndal and Collin had plans right after the ceremony (Kansas City Royals vs. St. Louis Cardinals baseball game!), they opted for photos before.

And that's what I'll share with you now ... just the ones I managed to capture on my phone.

First look ...

A groom and his brothers.

Oh my heart ...

And again ...

And again ....

Waiting for his bride ...

And going to get her ...

With this ring ..

I thee wed ..

And the two shall become one.

You may kiss your bride.

What a perfect day, folks. What a perfect day.

And now we are doing last minute packing and prep to leave for our 7 day caribbean cruise tonight! The happy couple is renewing their vows on the beach in Cozumel, Mexico, on Tuesday. Now the real fun begins!!!

Congratuations, Collin and Kyndal Werths. I love you.

Cells ~ It's What's for Dinner

Dawson made edible cells on Friday.

He made an animal cell pizza ...

and a plant cell chocolate chip cookie ...

He reviewed what he's learned about cells the past two weeks, and I had dinner made by someone else. Win, win!!

I am linking up at Science Sunday at Adventures in Mommydom.

Ketogenic + Restless Legs = Insomnia ... Um, No!

Okay, I have been eating ketogenic for five days now. I have gotten through the carb detox headaches and have settled into a macro plan of 5% carbs (no grains), 20% protein, 75% fat.

The upside is that I like the idea of limiting my body of all of the glucose which will help my minor health conditions.

But there are definitely downsides!

The first is that I am having a hard time getting in enough fats under the strictures of the diet. Who knew it would be hard to eat fats? The real problem is that the fats I want to eat then include a consumption of protein and/or carbs and then throws off my percentages. Still working on that one.

The bigger issue is that for the past couple of nights I have had trouble sleeping, and I have had restless legs.

Sleeping is one of those things that I do well. I go to bed at the same time every night (for the most part) and get up at the same time each morning. I can fit in a 15-30 minute power nap in the afternoon and have no trouble going to sleep at n…

America: The Story of Us ~ Episode 3: "Westward 1" Lesson Plans

This past summer, when I planned our lessons for this year, I was enthralled with how much information was in Episode 3 ~ Westward. It couldn't be done in just three weeks, as I had intended for each unit. So, I broke Westward up into two separate units: Westward 1 and Westward 2. This week I will provide the lesson plans for Westward 1. We spent three weeks on this part of the unit.

We readThe Captain's Dog by Roland Smith. We read an equal number of pages each day to cover the three-week unit (Suprisingly, Dawson did not enjoy this book as much as I thought he would. With him being such a dog-lover, I thought he would appreciate it more. But it just didn't have enough action for him. You'll find that he's hard to please when it comes to literature. I actually really enjoyed The Captain's Dog and thought it was a great piece of historical fiction.)

We watched the entire Episode 3, did the discussion questions/video quiz for the episode and the vocabulary words…
