***Things I'm thinking about...Oh, lots of things, as usual. I am still planning a bridal shower. Still putting off doing a thorough clean of the chicken coops (can't imagine why) and still waffling over our choices for next year. Just when I thought I had Rose's year all planned out I started rethinking some of it. Mostly the language arts parts, I always seem to get stuck on writing & grammar for some reason.
***Barn & garden happenings...If I could keep the darn chickens out, the garden would be doing great! Lots of little things sprouting up all over and unfortuantely two or three chickens that defy the fence and gate somehow and constantly need to be chased away from the pea seeds. I shudder to think what they are doing out there when I am not home. They might have to go under house (coop) arrest for awhile.
***In our kitchen... The boys are cooking this week and they are going to try their hand at lasagna. My kitchen is overflowing with Easter candy right now. My kids have some very sweet and generous relatives and they always get way too much candy. It is about all I can do not to eat jellybeans all day long.
*** In our homeschool...I never did get around to figuring out grammar for James last week. I am trying to focus on just one thing a week to plan for next year. I think this week I am just going to focus on reading The Writer's Jungle again.
***Creating...Well, Easter baskets. And that's about all I remember creating last week.***Reading and watching... We watched Hop the night before Easter. This week we plan to watch Apollo 13 and some more of The Story of India. We also watched Bernie without the kids and really enjoyed it.
***A few plans for the week ahead... It should be a quieter week than last, thankfully. The plans include the usual-gymnastics, archery, a riding lesson, rock climbing, homeschool group....plus a couple of family visits. I am also working on sorting the kids warmer weather clothes to figure out what they need and starting to plan a little trip for next month.
Have a wonderful week!
