Miss Meg Having Fun With Rice...
**Beware - This Activity Makes A TERRIBLE Mess!!!**
Dylan Injured His Hand Outside With Dad...
So He Decided To Play With Meg
We have had a VERY busy few weeks! Firstly we were all sick, with the exception of my husband who miraculously escaped the plague that did the rounds within our home! Secondly my parents have needed to move in with us whilst their cottage is being rewired, so things have been
Speaking of which, our official back-to-school date is TOMORROW!!! We have enjoyed a very long holiday this year, and I haven't really felt the urge to rush back to school since everyone was able to keep busy and stay out of mischief! Dylan is SO looking forward to beginning his new books for this year...especially Galloping the Globe! He LOVES to help me with the cooking, so he can't wait to try and make the different dishes as we study each country. Even though Amy does have her own geography curriculum...we decided that she could participate with Galloping the Globe too, as she thought she also would really like to cook those different cuisines!
My husband and I made some big decisions about our homeschooling last year, and so we are looking forward to trying new things out and pruning aspects that were not working so well...etc. The Holy Spirit has really given me such a PEACE about our schooling this year!
My Guys Reading The "Farmers Journal"
My Lovely Hubby!
The kids and I are over our sicknesses now. Poor Dylan and Meg got it the worst; with Dylan having the worst cough and Meg having the worst fever. Someone also advised me to try Lobelia extract to help with Dylan's cough as it is a natural expectorant...I'm pleased to report that it worked very well, alongside the TWO JARS of homemade cough syrup we used!!! Praise God that we all mended up very quickly and thank you to all who prayed for us!
Dylan Using With Amy's Electronics Set...He Played For HOURS With It!
My Son, The BRIGHT SPARK! :)
Just this weekend we hosted all of our church friends at our home for fellowship, food and FUN!! The ladies at our church helped and brought some food to share which was such a blessing...especially since they can all cook so well!! My mum also cooked her legendary beef stew for us all to enjoy...it was so good and everyone raved about it! We had such a great time and we are looking forward to doing it again in the future. We are so thankful to have found such a wonderful church home and family!!
