I love to read blog posts that show pictures of what the author does. It makes me feel like they have invited me into their home, and I get to experience the way they live, and what is important to them. They have inspired me to grab my own camera and document my almost every movement. I hope you enjoy my day, and hopefully are encouraged to share yours.
The first thing I do when I get up is check on my garden. The caterpillars have devoured my tomatoes, but my bell peppers are doing pretty good!
I also had to add algaecide to the pool this morning. Looks cool and refreshing, doesn't it!
Next I have to start breakfast, and clean the kitchen. Today for breakfast is peanut butter toast, scrambled eggs, and grapes.
Clean, clean, clean!!
After breakfast is when we usually start our lessons. We are using Rod & Staff for my 5th grader, and 1st grader.
While they are working on their lessons I get started on some salsa. This snack is so fresh and yummy!
These are all the ingredients I need to make this...
and here is the final product. Doesn't it look wonderful?
After the salsa was done, I got the girls started on their lapbooks. Lexi is doing TheHuman Body, and Cadyn is doing The Ants Go Marching.
While they are doing their lessons I made a batch of Banana Chocolate Chip muffins. Let me just say that they did not last very long!
Then I have to clean the kitchen.....again! It never seems to be clean! Do you see our science project up on the window sill? It is a Venus Flytrap! It currently has one fly in it's trap, and we are eagerly waiting to see what happens when it opens back up.
After I cleaned the kitchen we decided to go outside for a little while. You know, to get our wiggles out!
The girls were worn out by this time, so we all laid down for quiet time until it was time to make dinner. Dinner was Spaghetti with home made noodles, and french bread. Sorry, but I forgot to take a picture of it. I was too hungry!
I hope you all enjoyed my day! It was a lot of fun to put together for you, and maybe I will do it again. You will just have to keep coming back to see!
