The morning unfolded and my plans changed. It was cold this morning. Very cold. I had used all the sheltered wood so I went to the pile near the cutting block to collect more. When I came inside, we all went to the window to admire how the layer of frost on the wood glistened in the sunlight. It looked magical coated with sparkles!
When we had all dressed and made beds, we headed out to the orchard where we milk the goats each day. Belle chose to milk while I fed the chooks and refilled hay nets for the evening.
They've decided to go and play outside for a while. I asked Belle to recite a couple of tables before they went and we played a counting game for Buddy's benefit and then they ran off to play. Some days school work seems to be the be-all-and-end-all but other days life itself seems so good that school work doesn't seem so relevant.
|We experimented with this candle we say online. It's just an orange peel with olive oil and it really works!|
Tomorrow I may feel differently and be frantic about getting through enough lessons. We have plenty of days like that. It's hard to find the balance. But for today, I'm just going to revel in the beautiful people that are my children!
