A Fall Break

Last week was our fall break from school, and Quentin took a week of vacation. He goes back to work tomorrow, and we will miss him badly! I can’t wait to dive back into the books this week-I really did miss it. We are starting a new science curriculum-Apoligia Exploring Creation with General Science, and Madison is starting keyboarding. It should be an interesting week of school around here!

There was a lot of work going on during our break. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday was spent putting down laminate flooring.Β  Tearing up carpet, padding, and linoleum is not much fun! I am glad it is over.

And Kitchen

Friday we went thrift shopping and bowling with the Dawson’s. It was a lot of fun and felt good to have a fun day out!

Saturday was opening day of bow season here, and Quentin got his first deer. The girls and I stayed home and caught up on housework.

Today we went to meet the people that we are getting our baby bottle buckling from in December. Her Nigerian dwarfs were all beautiful, and she had the calmest, sweetest buck ever. He was a handsome fellow. I hope our buck grows up to look and act just like his dad. We are first on the waiting list and get the first pick.

We are down to two little kittens. They will be going to people at Quentin’s work this week. We are going to make an appointment tomorrow to get our last unfixed cat fixed. I think we have had all the kittens we can handle.

Our kittens are sweet and cuddly and come pre-spoiled!

Today is rainy and cold and our temps have not reached 50ΒΊ. We are enjoying our first fire to warm us up.

Keeping Warm

I hope everyone has a nice week!

  1. The wood floors look great. Maybe someday we can do ours. I would love the warmer temperatures. we have had fires the last several mornings.

    Have a wonderful afternoon with your family.


  2. Your floor looks wonderful! I think we passed Quentin Saturday morning as we were going to Tweetsie. We wondered if he had gotten a deer. Congratulations! I know you all will be enjoying that fresh meat. We had so much fun Friday. The girls are already wanting to know when we can do it again. I’ll talk to you soon. God bless.

  3. Wow, your new flooring looks fabulous! We need to do the same thing but haven’t mustered up the courage yet.

    My girls are grown now but they were homeschooled, too. πŸ™‚
    Have a great week!
