It has been a season of quiet days for us.
Not uneventful....but but quiet.
Since things are closing down and cancelled we've been enjoying
even more time at home.
Homeschooling is still going on for us, for as any parent can tell you that
a child with nothing better to do will get into trouble sooner or later.
I have been doing things a bit differently and not as much bookwork.
We've been doing book reviews for history, &
printouts for practice of plotting locations on maps.
We have a surplus of popcycle sticks so I've just let my
boys have at er and they are having fun.
Going through lots of glue sticks to...but keeping busy doing something
productive for them.
Plus there is the regular needs of the home that we are all
working together in...just like usual.
My one daughter and I have been sewing curtains.
Below are the ones I did. I had a very long curtain and so
I cut of some of the material to make a smaller curtain for my son's room.
No need to go and find more material...and the one curtain
came from the free store so it was great!
She made some curtains out of red checkered material.
They go well with her woodsy style in her room.
I was also able to work my way to the bottom of my mending pile.
OH that is a wonderful feeling to see the bottom of the basket!
Today I finally got around to making some mittens out of an old woolen sweater.
Yes...just in time for winter to be coming to a close.
Two had the cuffs on them and two didn't.
So the two that don't have the cuffs will be liners for other mittens.
Oh the weather has been so amazing and warming up to just above freezing.
Perfect for a picnic outside! We got our fire going on the other
side of the picnic table...in an old satellite dish.
Hot dogs always taste best cooked over a fire!
There are some lovely icicles forming as the warmth is causing a bit of melting.
The kids have been wanting to be outside more and more.
The boys will play for hours in the snow.
Below is their favourite spot...now that it's no longer a skating rink.
Just had too much snow to keep up with it.
They've made snow forts and trails with their GT's that they pretend
are their snow mobiles.
The sunshine and fresh air are so good for everyone!
While I am not spending as much time outside with them...
I'm opening up windows to let fresh air in.
Baking yummy banana bread and baked beans.
It's good to enjoy the quiet at home.
May we enjoy the company of those we love
as we wait for things to start opening up again.
Trust in the Lord and do not fear.
Our lives are in His hands...just like they always have been.
Love and Prayers,
