Here is Ky's video project for English 4 Honors. His group needed to create a trailer for "Pride and Prejudice."
Would you go see this movie?
Welcome to Prarie Pi. This blog exists to journal and document the memories that our family experiences. Pi is "an amount of type that has been jumbled or thrown together at random." We hope to assemble in words and pictures the daily thoughts and activities that happen in our household. We do this to help those that are distant from us get a glimpse into our days so that the miles that separate us won't keep us apart.

|Rocky left to go on his first drive without an adult riding along....|
|....he didn't need an adult as he turned in his permit for a driver's license. He passed the driving test today!|
|He arrived home safe and sound! I am excited to have a driver who is excited to do errands for me!|

|St. Joan of Arc|
|St. David (with his sling shot)|
|All ready for our All Saints Day party!|
|St. Nicholas played his part and was passing out golden (chocolate) coins.|
|I caught St. Nicholas sneaking one of his coins! :)|
| O may thy soldiers, faithful, true, and bold, |
fight as the saints who nobly fought of old,
and win with them the victor's crown of gold.

|....pure autumn gold, that is!!|
|We walk/ride bike through our neighborhood each day and have the pleasure of passing by this most wonderful tree!|
|I just love the contrast of the yellow against the dark brown tree trunk.|
|I never fail to stop and look up at the feathery leaves as I walk by........|
|...and am always amazed at the opportunity to witness such beauty and simplicity of this giant canopy of brilliant gold.|

|Oh my....what's that boy doing?|
|Hey!.....You in the diaper!|
|Yes, you! |
Just wanted to let you know there is a rule that states there is no texting while driving!!
You can get into an accident even while driving Mr. Red Nose.
But, I won't enforce this rule until you are 16!
So......drive and text away!

|Buttercup had a wonderful day on her birthday!|
We made treat bags to take to "school."
|It was a beautiful morning as we set off for Mass to celebrate the Feast of the Guardian Angels.|
|The kids worked on school in the morning and then daddy came and picked them up for a lunch date.|
|In the afternoon, we were invited to visit Pat's farm! Her backyard was just beautiful!|
|There was a swing.....|
|...and a pond where I captured a few beautiful pictures of Buttercup!|
|Anton loved the horses and we walked through a very old, BIG barn! The kids can't wait to go back and visit again!|
|After the farm visit, we played our first game of....|
|Then, Buttercup had gymnastics....|
|...and then it was back home again for her requested meal of chicken dumpling soup and ice cream cake.|
|Then, it was time for more presents! Buttercup will be trying more baking this year so she received her very own spatula and oven mitt!|
|This present was saved until the end and nobody could guess what it was....even when it was first taken out of the box.|
|As soon as it was unfolded......everyone knew it was a gymnastic beam....|
|....and it was....|
|...and handstands for the rest of the night!|
Happy 11th Birthday, Buttercup!
You are our SWEETY!
