A day in the life

Sometimes I just wonder where the time goes.  I know that the Grandpas and Grandmas wonder what fills our days.   

Here is a peek into our ordinary life.

 A silly Baby Mary in her jammies wearing my favorite boots.

 Daniel playing Duplos with Abbie

Brushing and braiding beautiful, long hair.
 Daniel doing some school.  Learning all the names of the months, the order they come in, and how many days each has can be confusing.  I thought we'd make some fun out of it.  I found some 12 x 12 card stock paper with the calendar grid already printed on it.   He decorated January and February.  At the end of February we'll get supplies for March and April and May - the spring months.

 Piano practice

The goats come out of the barn to see if this time there might be something to graze on.   "Blah, more of this cold, white stuff!" 
We do not have any in milk right now so the chores are minimal,
just feeding, watering and pen cleaning. 
It's been so cold that last week's snow hasn't melted much.

 The garden is sleeping under a blanket of snow,
but we are dreaming of what we'd like to plant next year.  

 Ellie working hard on phonics.  We are moving slowly and steadily.
I can't wait for the magical day when reading "clicks".  I consider myself so incredibly privileged to teach this skill and instill the love of learning in her. 

Hannah doing her school...on her own comfy bed!  Our whole house is a school house. ;-) 

Mary having a play time.  She is at the age where she gets into EVERYTHING!  While she loves to be with each of us, she plays on her own very well too.
and then there is juicing.  My goal is to juice each day, but really, it's more like 4-5 days per week.  It's amazing just how much flavor strawberry tops add to juice! 
So delicious. {Thanks for the idea, Keri}
Lots of dress up happens too.
And all this before lunch!

  1. Yay! Glad that you are enjoying juicing! We are trying to work ourselves back into the habit that it once was for us!


I always look forward to reading your comments. Thank you for taking the time to leave one. :-)
