Drying Food, Farm Bingo, And A Trip To The Library

Yet another forgotten post. Just a reminder of how crazy our life got last year… I do enjoy looking back over these memories though! This was from October 2018…

We’ve had a busy week with drying food, farm bingo, and the a trip to the library mixed in with our regularly scheduled actitivites. These were just a few of the topics we covered in our second week of our Little House On The Prairie Academic Adventure.

Once again the kids are loving this adventure and it has encouraged them to learn so much and they are constantly seeking out answers to new questions they come up with. While this can get quite annoying at time, hey… I’m being honest…., I know that this is an important part of learning.

We started off by reading Chapters 3 & 4 in the Little House in the Big Woods. We always have a nice discussion after reading so the kids can ask/answer questions. They look forward to hearing more about Laura’s adventures in the Big Woods.

We are still working out of our Ray’s Arithmetic Books, and still working on fractions. The younger kids are working on some other activities in math and they love working with Spielgaben set too.  (I thought I had some pictures but I can’t find them.)

Best Memories Of The Summer

Oh my goodness… I’ve yet another post that was forgotten about and never published. This one has given me quite a few smiles and I hope we have an even better summer this year. I have added a few things to our routines to try and make sure that we make this year even better than last! This post was from June 2018…

Wow! Can you believe summer is almost over? Where did it go?

I know we didn’t get to do nearly as much as we had planned which was in part due to the extremely wet weather we’ve had. We had several special projects that haven’t made it off of the paper yet either but I know we will eventually accomplish what we have set to do.

This summer has been so busy and so full of fun. Below are some of our favorite memories from this summer in no particular order:

We have all enjoyed reading about Laura Ingalls Wilder.

Everyone also enjoyed getting their library cards at our first visit to the local library.

Then ice cream is always a summer favorite!

They also love this picture they took with Elvis…

Jacob loved that he got to help out in the kitchen more thanks to the Kids Cook Real Foods course we’ve been using.

And he really loved helping to come up with new recipes like Cinnamon Roll Muffins.

Everyone also loved going to the movies several times this summer. We saw several movies including Jurassic World, The Incredibles, Jumanji, and The Ant Man.

Of course our camping trip to GA ranks up there in our favorite summer memories.

Spending time with family is always special.

We cant forget square dances and surprise text messages either.

The kids love playing games with their square dance friends.

I love it when I get to dance with Mr. Awesome….

Joey is still loving his new specs.

And all of the kids are loving the new games which have come handy as boredom busters during all this rainy weather.

I’m sure there are a ton of things we’ve forgotten about but these were the top few things we thought of. What are your favorite summer memories?
