WOW!! Time has flown since I last posted! I often feel that since we are using the Charlotte Mason Method to a “T”, (my children are 6 and 4, and we start year one this fall) that right now I don’t have much to write about. Often posting seems forced, but I just need to step back and think that I will get there. There will be PLENTY of opportunity to share our literature, art, HANDICRAFTS (my favorite, can you tell) and other wisdom that we learn along our journey.
For now I will simply share about
*This fake snake in a tree branch hanging over a sidewalk in our neighborhood. Every time we pass it I shudder, ICKY! NOT FUNNY!
*and these handmade napkins that I just happened across on this AWESOME website! I am anxious to go through my scrap fabric and get started!
See you back here soon when I host the Charlotte Mason Blog Carnival! It will be about NARRATION!!
I honestly feel like this is all I have time for right now, to post a snippet of our lives. I guess that is a good thing. Our children need their Mama to read books, paint with mud and make pb&j’s.
This guy has been one of the highlights of our trip to this farm for more than 2 years now. The children love watching him holler!
On this chilly day of rest, we are taking comfort in chocolate chip cookies! Hopefully the warming aroma of these delicious treats baking does not wake up the children! :) In fact, what woke them, was my car pulling out of the drive way in a quick dash to get a very important ingredient in cookies! EGGS! Yes, I started the cookies and didn’t realize we didn’t have eggs in the house. It doesn’t end there though!
As my little ballerina pulled up a chair to help, I couldn’t help but get out my camera and snap some shots of her precious little hands adding this and that to the bowl. Lost in my enjoyment of our daughter, I YET again forgot something.
Thank God I remembered I had doubled the recipe, but only put in the half of the flour! Only one batch came out ruined. :)
The other few dozen are scrumptious, I promise!
We very much enjoy our day of rest, on which we can fellowship with our church family, listen to God’s word being taught, and enjoy a cup of coffee on the sofa just my hubby and I! On this day of rest we were able to bless a special family with some encouragement and cookies, and my cousin in Afghanistan will appreciate some homemade goodies as well. What do you do on your day of rest?
