Here is a short update of the last week or so.

The sleep training is a success.  I have been working to get my 4 month old to sleep in his crib.  He had been sleeping in his carseat or my bed since he was born.  I tried first with naptime, but he never would fall asleep in the crib.  So, after a couple of days, I decided to try with the bedtime instead.  It only took 3 nights and now he’ll sleep in there (from 8 p.m. until 3 a.m. or longer!) for bedtime and for his naps! 

Today we went to an "Egypt Fair" put on by a homeschool co-op.  In preparation for it we have been reading up on ancient Egypt for the last couple of weeks–emphasizing the biblical accounts of Joseph and Moses/the Exodus.  Today at the fair they made some crafts (sand picture of the Sphinx, a Pharoah’s crook, heiroglyphics of their names, a collar, a Nile crocodile, a reed boat and frosting a pyramid chocolate cake!), ate some Egyptian food (grapes, figs, watermelon), and did an archaeological dig (in a shallow sandbox).  It was perfect for the ages of my kids: 3, 4 and 6.  They loved it!  (The two babies did a pretty good job of just tagging along.)

I’ll post some pictures when I can.
