Wednesday catch up...

I have been a bit of a slacker when it comes to taking pictures
of our "school days", not to mention posting them.
Here is a quick re-cap of the past week or so...
in no particular order.
We baked some bread

we had dinner with family to celebrate Great Grandma's 81st, which will be next week...



Princess took good care of her cousin's baby



We baked some cookies

I snuggled with my niece's baby

We played outside in the cold almost dark...

admired out Thankful Tree from outside..


Played on the swings...

Discovered new mushrooms in the back of the yard..

Alley trying to figure out which one is supposed to be her?

Snuggled up on Farmer Dad's lap


Princess dressed up for some handwriting practice..



The kids like to have a round or two of hide and seek at the end of our
Homeschool Group play date every week.


We had flurries here today on and off, but nothing ever came of it.
More is expected this week.

Oh my goodness! Your house is the perfect example of war, fuzzy, cozy love. I am VERY jealous of your BIG loaf of bread:P

It isn't edible, but some stinkhorns are.

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to discover the child's natural bent .
