We were blessed with another great week. We got in four days of school, and we are really enjoying our new science curriculum. Everyone is doing the same science since it is listed for 7th grade and for ages 11, 12, & 13. That is exactly what I have! Most lessons are backed with some sort of experiment which everyone is enjoying. The experiments are helping me understand and remember what we’re learning. I think they are helping my kids too. 🙂
Thursday was a no school day. The boys went hunting. The girls and myself washed quilts and cleaned bathrooms. In the afternoon we went for a walk through the woods with the Dawsons. I love hiking in the fall and hearing the leaves crunch under my feet. Thursday night we cut some firewood.
While thrift shopping last week McKenzie found a manger for $1.50 at the Salvation Army. We have a thing for nativities. I bought these wooden nativity figures to go in her manger off ebay. I think it made an adorable set. She will take them with her when she is grown to have in her own house. 🙂
Friday night Quentin surprised with flowers and Lays dill pickle chips. Does anyone else love dill pickle chips?
Madison is working on a quilt. I think it is called Sunbonnet Sue. She has her first quilt square finished. We planned on it being our winter project so she is trying not to complete it so fast.
We had tacos this week and turned our flour tortillas into taco bowls. They tasted just like the ones you get at a Mexican restaurant. Since they were so easy to make I thought I would share them with you. 🙂 We used the recipe found here.
And that was our week. I hope you were blessed with a great as well!
