What is it with my kids and noses right now? Zion injured his nose recently and I wrote on Facebook about how Malachi stuck a Skittle up his nose.
This morning Hosanna stuck a tiny round lego up her tiny nose.
Zion came into my room and asked me to wipe his nose (we have colds) and then Hosanna came in and asked me to wipe her nose.
As Hosanna was leaving the room, I heard her say, “What about the Lego?” I shot up straight in bed and started freaking. Lego in the nose? Oh please let this be a dream.
Jonah tried the tweezers, but her nose is so tiny that it was next to impossible.
I called my mama because she has experience in dealing with things up noses. No, she didn’t stick anything up her nose, I did. I stuck a crayon up my nose when I was little.
My mama took me to the doctor and the doctor said, “I’m going to plug her nostril and blow in her mouth.” (or something like that). And it worked.
Apparently I didn’t learn because when I got home I told my mama that I stuck another crayon up my nose. She told me it would just have to stay there because she wasn’t going to the doctor again. (to the best of my knowledge I don’t still have a crayon up my nose, so I must have been joking – my poor mama).
Okay, back to Hosanna.
We tried a couple of times with the tweezers and thenI had called my mama. Now it was time to try plugging one nostril and blowing in her mouth. I tried that a couple of times and then Jonah tried the tweezers again. Then in one last ditch effort I tried blowing in her mouth again. And out flies this tiny round Lego covered with boogers and just a tinge of blood (from the tweezers I think).
I called my mama back in relief. I did not want a doctor’s visit this morning…
And I wondered what I would find to blog about today. So what exciting things are happening in your life today?
In our science lesson yesterday we did a short introduction to the periodic table. We had a nice and colorful periodic table in our book and I was able to print one out from here – simple black and white periodic table - for their notebooks.
I thought it would be fun to take a little detour from our book (Our Planet Earth) and visit two sites that will tell us a little more about the periodic table in interesting ways.
And play some games that I made for The Beehive (they are all FREE).

It’s the week of the ROAST over at our house.
We bought a giant roast this month. When I say giant, I mean G-I-A-N-T! The man behind my husband in the line at the grocery store asked who we were feeding with our half a cow. It’s just the seven of us (and my parents), but we shop for a month.
On the Large Family Good Eats menu this week are all things roast beef. I am open to more suggestions and ideas (in the comments).
- Beef Stew – onions, cooked beef, peas, corn, green beans, with rice
- Beef and Broccoli – beef, broccoli, rice
- Pizza – with onions, beef, peppers, olives, mushrooms (for those that can eat them), and homemade pizza dough
- Beef Stroganoff – beef, gravy, and fettuccine noodles
- Fajita Casserole – Beef, peppers, olives, fajita spice/sauce, with noodles or rice
