I sewed all of us Angry Bird Costumes! Angry birds is a HUGELY POPULAR game on cell phones…and online too! Ā šŸ™‚ Daniel was the green pig, mommy the red bird, daddy the bomb black bird and Uncle Danny the Green bird!! We had such a WONDERFUL weekend and a much needed break!! God is doing really good things in our life……we are so blessed! šŸ™‚


P.s. On a side note my brother Danny (green bird) moved back to the U.P.!! We are glad he is starting over and has a fresh start here! šŸ™‚

All done…. October 28, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — lauritsenfamily @ 1:52 AM

I deactivated my facebook account today. This is BIG for me. I really did enjoy the easiness of facebook. I could see what all my friends and family were doing so quick and easy. BUt on the same not it was a TIME waster forĀ me. I am a VERY busy homeschooling, college student, wife and momma! I am always on the go go go….and it just sucked too much time away from me. So thats …that! WOW….BIG STEP! I also am tired….I am tired of every post i post being judged by people…who do NOT know me. Who assume they know me..without asking me questions. I am an open book. I will not lie about who I am or what I believe. I can feel myself getting angry over these situations…so i though it best to cut that part of my life off. So here i have a blog…..only people who are really my boring yet crazy life…will read this. And if you get offended by what you read here…Well…im sorry. But this is MY BLOG. Huggs!

Peace and Love-Desi

**Who by the way loves homeschooling,Ā obsessesĀ aboutĀ college and has to getĀ straightĀ A’s,Ā dontĀ believe inĀ circumcision, select vaccines, I still enjoy cosleeping, I do not cut my hair AT ALL, I only wear skirts, I believe in 1 god…not 3. I believe that holiness STARTS on the INSIDE of someone and I love my husband because he is my best friend and We are adoptingĀ becauseĀ we love children and want more of them in our home.

I most importantly believe in my relationship with GOD. This is me….like me or hate me…this is me.

Filed under: Uncategorized — lauritsenfamily @ 1:30 AM

This year for science we kicked our year off with a rock and mineral lapbook! It has really been a lot of fun and Daniel is reallyĀ “digging” it! haha ( wow its goofy). Anyway we took another field trip this time to the A. E. Seaman Museum that is on the Michigan Tech Campus! They just moved so the whole museum is not up and running yet…but what is up is AWESOME! Daniel had so much fun looking at all the different rocks and minerals! PLUS their gift store is awesome to touch everything!! Daniel is a “feeler” like his momma…so he loves to handle the things he is learning about! We even picked up a few cool rocks form there to add to our collection, a petosky stone for Daniel to polish himself (this is the Michigan state rock) and a GEODE!! Daniel was UBER excited to bust Ā this baby open and see what crystals were forming inside!! We waited until Saturday when Daddy was home to help! It was a fun family activity!

Here is a link to the museum!Ā

Here are some pics from our field trip! šŸ™‚ It was so fun!

CELLO CELLO CELLO!! September 13, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — lauritsenfamily @ 12:55 AM

Today was Daniels first individual lesson for the school year. We have officially enrolled in the Copper COuntry Suzuki school and he has lessons twice a week. His individual lessons are on Mondays with ms. Maggie who WE LOVE!!! She is also a homeschooling momma and is the sweeeetest person in the world. She is so kind and soft with Daniel that i just love her and Daniel does too! He started cello last spring when he joined a cello club that she had at the library. We decided to try it out and see if he would like cello..??? Well he does! Even though at times it is HARD and he gets frustrated….he is sticking with it and is doing amazing! He is learning music and can play quite a few songs already! I am a happy momma and am so proud of my little cellist!

Suzuki is a very awesome program they start them young ( you can start older though too) and they really focus on repetition and practice practice practice! It is a VERY disciplined school but it is EXACTLY what i wanted for him. If he wants to play the cello i want him to PLAY the cello! Everyday after we do school in the morning, the have lunch then its 1/2 hour of cello practice! He likes it and i make it fun! We also just got a suzuki book1 CD that we will isten to while we do some of our schoooling so he can hear the cello tunes, before he even learns the song…they say this is GREAT for kids learning the cello! šŸ™‚ Ā šŸ™‚


Here is a picture of him practicing a while back, i will take some new ones soon!

Here is the website to the school we are going thru!ĀĀ That is Ms. Maggie on the front of the website! LOVE HER! šŸ™‚

Peace, love and CELLO- Desi
