Jake and I made up his learning list before bed tonight. These are all things he's very interested in and wants to know more about. I've done homeschooling this way the majority of the time with all four of my kids. This works so well because it builds on the child's interests. I'll take this … Continue reading Jake’s learning list
Puppers is going to be the best dog ever. I'm convinced of it. I don't know how I know, but I do. I feel it in my bones. I just KNOW. I've had her since she was two days old. Look how tiny she was! We've gone through the "OMG quit peeing everywhere - you … Continue reading Best dog ever
I think I have the cutest little farm hand in all of America! He helped me dig out the holes for these three stepping stones. This is going to be an eclectic hodgepodge walkway with low growing mosses between all the rocks, pottery, and concrete pieces, and there will be wildflowers all around the front … Continue reading Little farm hand
On the day of the doctor appointment, I also stopped at Target and found lots of teacher goodies in their Dollar Spot. If you homeschool and have older kids in activities, you know how it is doing some schooling in the car during hour long practices. I love using the iPad for math and spelling … Continue reading Lesson planning
I am so happy that our local farmers' market is growing every year. Today I found a wonderful source for stoneware pottery - all locally thrown, painted, and personalized by hand! The tables were overflowing with beautiful pieces, and I couldn't take them all in fast enough because every time I felt myself eyeballing one … Continue reading Look what I found at our farmers’ market!
...soaking jars for the big canning sessions taking place over the next two days!
Guess what I picked up last night after the doctor appointment? TURKEYS!!!!!! Meet Christmas Supper and Thanksgiving Dinner: I bought these from a young girl who raised five for the fair but could only take two to the fair (these are two of the three who didn't go to the fair). I am very happy … Continue reading The new additions
I usually avoid doctors like the plague, but sometimes I do have to go. I went today - but not for my back (which after a day of icing and Bayer Back & Body is only slightly sore today!). Two years ago, I had a cyst removed from deep inside my wrist. It had been … Continue reading A visit to the dr
Today will not have anything exciting going on at my farm. I did get everybody fed and watered, but that's it. The little chick got down from the nest and made such a scattered mess of the wood chip hill that she couldn't get back in there. It was too high. I had to move … Continue reading Sometimes things just happen
I was able to get 16 lbs of fresh green beans from an Amish farmer at the farmers' market for just $20! My husband and both daughters helped me snap all the ends off and break them into small pieces earlier today. I am on my third canner full. 16 lb equalled out to 14 … Continue reading Canning green beans
