It is starting to feel more like fall and less like summer. Our evenings and nights have definitely been cooler. Next week we will be doing full days of school, and our gardening is coming to an end.
We have still gotten a couple of surprises blooming this week. Our hummingbird vine bloomed this year for the first time, and a hibiscus that my father-in-law started from a seed also bloomed for the first time.
I think our garden did pretty well this year. Of course I am already making plans for a bigger, better one next year. 🙂 This week we canned salsa and bread and butter pickles and froze spaghetti sauce and corn. Our onions are ready to be pulled and dried and our peaches are starting to fall from the tree.
We only got in three days of school this week-again. Next week we will do better. We started reading this week instead of spelling. We use Spelling Power, and I need to be ready to test them Monday. I want to be sure I am starting them on the right level.
Today we have dusted, vacuumed, and made more spaghetti sauce. Now the kids are watching westerns and making things with perler beads.
We still need to make yogurt, sourdough bread, and do outdoor chores. I hope you all have a great weekend!
