In My Life.....
It was a rough couple weeks. We had to make a quick trip to Tennessee with my hubby for work and it really threw off our whole schedule. But we had a nice little break from normal routine.
Joe and I were also working hard at getting our website up and running for our Homeschool with Minecraft server. I still have a ton of work to finish.
Because of all that stress, my body just took a dump mood-wise and I just starred at my screen a lot not really accomplishing anything. I cleaned and did little things around the house, but didn't really feel like I was accomplishing anything. It was a rut and I had to kick myself out of it....and quickly.
In our Homeschool .......
We have been chugging along slowly. Lydia has a ton of patches she is working on for Brownies. I have to step it up because she will be bridging in the fall.
Covering basic subjects. The boys and I have started the computer programming section of Khan Academy. We are going to do the Minecraft Mod class also, so we need to learn a little more about programming. I think the boys think it is fun because Mom is learning this right along with them. SHHHHHhhhh don't tell them there are a lot of subjects this happens with.
Caty and I have been working on our alphabet and counting skills. She is playing on Essential Skills and Education.com's games. Lots of educational games. Both the girls have been playing Animal Jam a lot also.
Projects I am working on......
Still just trying to keep up. I decided to take on quilting. I have a couple other sewing projects I am working on for the girls. I want to make them western skirts for the girls Daddy and Me dance.
We have also been working hard getting our curriculum ready for our Homeschool with Minecraft Websites!! So excited to get this project up and running!!
What I am reading.....
I really am not getting to read much. I have been busy with craft stuff and Minecraft school items.
What I am cooking.....
Up and down here. Made some yummy chicken and rice soup with homemade bone broth. Made a big pan of Mexican Lasagna and it was super yummy!!! There was two types of chili and I even froze the leftovers for Joe and Joey. It was a soup week, because I even made beef, mushroom and noodle soup. SOOOO yummy. I am trying to be very good and make bone broth/stock from both the chicken and beef bones. The chicken stock is already put up and the beef broth finished cooking tonight and I have it cooling in the fridge so I can put it in the freezer.
Photos to share......
Ok, I am going to finish out with several pics from the past couple week.s
We got a Gingerbread village kit on clearance and the kids put these together. Even Brayden done one.
Lydia made a hopscotch board for her American Girl Dolls. She sewed it all by herself!
I am going to get back up and running this week with daily blog posts!!!
