Here's what I've done so far today:
1. Kicked off our 2013-14 homeschool year!
2. Made two loaves of French bread.
3. Made a blackberry pie.
4. Made a fabulous BBQ chicken pizza for the lunch.
5. Milled some grain.
6. Enjoyed the rain, for the 147th day in a row.
7. Changed the sheets on my bed.
8. Found a rabbit head in my garage.
9. Caught my oven on fire.
10. Finally wrote a blog post.
Not that I should really need to explain, but just in case you are new here,
I live in the country, and the rabbit head was a gift from my dog.
He consumed the rest for himself.
Oh, it's just so symbolic of my entire life.
And thank goodness for my second oven in the garage, otherwise I never could
have done #2 & 3 after the unfortunate incident with #4.
(But the pizza was saved, and boy was it delicious!)
(The oven on the other hand...I'm not sure about.)
As far as #1 goes, I will tell you this.
These two little kiddos of mine are all-in.
But I will also say this.
Isaiah has the attention span of a Kansas fence post.
So it's my crafty job to cram in as much as I possibly can in a
very short amount of time.
And believe me you, this kid is LEARNING.
And he's super smart.
And I'm very proud of him.
And it's times like this that I'm very happy to be homeschooling
because I have no doubt that if he was in a classroom
all stinking day long, he would never make it.
And they would slap some sort of label on him and recommend
some sort of horrific medication.
So I'm just super thankful for homeschooling.
Here are some pictures o' the day:
|This is my summer uniform. T-shirt, stretchy sorts, WITH pockets, so I can|
carry my phone and timer with me.
|Because I almost always have something in the oven.|
And I need my timer...because I WILL forget whatever is baking if I don't have a reminder.
Gah! So delicious.
|It is my greatest desire to *someday* make a pretty pie.|
I hope your day has been every bit as adventurous and productive as mine!
