Welcome Peanut!

Princess was very happy Tuesday to welcome Peanut to our
Garden State Homeschool. Peanut is one of her best friends, although they
refer to each other as sisters. Peanut will be with us while her Mom pursues
her Masters Degree. There is only one way to celebrate such a momentous occasion,
we baked cookies! I made the dough Monday, and let the girls have their
choice of cookie cutters from some of our collection. They played outside while they baked.I called them in to clean up, decorate the cookies and we ate lunch while they

We will be having a lot of fun as we enjoy these last weeks of Summer.
Princess will be starting 2ND Grade, and Peanut will be doing Pre K work
once Autumn is here and we start school. Then we will have even more fun.
I will be back soon to talk about some of our school year plans.

YUMMERS! What a great way to celebrate! Princess and Peanut sounds as natural as "peanut-butter and jelly" or "jumping and jacks"! LOL

The cookies look delicious. The little ladies did a fabulous job on them.

that is so wonderful! What a blessing for an only child, to have another lovely girl joining her at "school".

Those are some crazy looking cookies. Love them.

Can't wait to see what you are planning for this year. My oldest is in second grade too. :-)

The cookies are beautiful. I love the scotty and cow.

That's a really neat arrangement for Princess. We are doing the same this year.

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 .
