You have a really cute site. Your turkey caught my eye because I just made one yesterday with my boys. We did ours a little different. I do a lot of pine cone crafts because I live in the Sierra Mountains so we have a ton of them. I would love for you to join my weekly linky party. Fri-monday come strut your stuff.

It looks like your kids are having so much fun learning! There is a part of me that would love to homeschool. I hate how much time I have to spend away from my son now that he's in first grade.
