The basement got well and truly "tackled" yesterday as planned. We managed to say "farewell" to the five 8' banquet tables that housed a large Playmobil city for the long winter months. Ahhhh.... it feels so good to have that packed up! The kids will be thrilled to bring it out again come the first heavy snowfall, but for now, we shift our activities and our energies out of doors where fresh air and soil await our lungs and hands!
Books remain scattered throughout the house, evidence of learning taking place no matter the day of the week. I've spied the kids reading about various topics these past few days all fuelled by a desire to learn and know more about something. Questions abound. Messes multiply. One of the hardest things about Home Education is the constant clutter and mess. I'm just being real here. When you are home all day busily learning and exploring, things pile up! Books, art supplies, science experiments, toys... Sometimes it just gets on your nerves a little bit, but that's just part of the process. So, we let things unfold and we teach and learn, and try to pick up at anchor points in our day (meals namely).
I ground some wheat this morning (specifically, Gold Forest Grains organic hard red wheat) and made my usual 4 loaves plus a double batch of blueberry muffins. All will be gone by bedtime, between lunch, snacks and packing lunches for tomorrow. My husband and 2 oldest sons take lunches each day.
All in all, a good day planned with much to do with the family! I'll (hopefully) update tomorrow with pics of the finished cold frames. Enjoy your Sunday, however you keep it :)
