It’s the last week for the month of January……ahhh, the dreary skies will rumble away….and while they have been here for (what seems like) an eternity…….they have brought with them sad news…happy news and reasons to rejoice.
It is also the last week The Homeschool Village is reaching out….and asking us to post our accomplishments….and encourage one another. OK, they always want us to encourage one another…and I love that about The Homeschool Village…..so, I thought I would share what’s been going on.
Grandma arrived safely! YES! I have some happy kiddos….no pics, though…we’ve been too busy.
In the midst of Grandma being here, I am managing to accomplish school on a very modified platform……
I’ve been searching for a new math curriculum for my oldest. He needs a little more meat with his math….and I received an email about a free three month subscription to ALEKS.Com. The Kamakaze Kid sat at the computer for an hour, taking his assessment test…and now, is enjoying watching his knowledge grow as the colors of his PIE change!
Lunch….we had lunch with a friend after our Creation Science Club. Spending time with friends and chatting on the phone has taken a place on the back burner the past six months, as I have been toting the children around…and working with my Daughter…for her Dyslexia……through the Wilson Reading System. She read the latest of her books (Viking Adventure) to Grandma the other night….and it was wonderful hearing her sound out the words and the joy of her voice ringing through the room….and Grandma….the smile, the love…….
Last week, I posted about making my own pasta…this week….I learned how to make something else…. One item we had to cut from our budget last year was yogurt. So, that became my next endeavor….and yesterday a friend came over and taught me how to make cultured yogurt! I did it! It is in the fridge now and I can’t wait to take it out, add a few berries, a little honey and enjoy it’s yumminess!
Next week….cultured butter!! My refrigerator and pantries…..look nothing like they did a year ago. They look more like my Great Grandmother’s….mason jars, containers full of items that we mix and pull together…….we are taking better care of these temples our Father has given us…….loving Him through them and enjoying the yummy flavor of food that we make!
