Learning about Patterns

Hadley and I have table time every day while Lydia takes a nap. We do different pre-school types of activities. Sometimes we work on holding our pencil the right way, and sometimes we work on following directions. This past week we worked on patterns. In the past it's been a difficult concept but this time she really got it! I'm so proud and I feel like it was our first home school moment!

Rainy Day

Hadley got an umbrella for Easter and we've had plenty of opportunity to use it this week!

Easter Time

Here are a few pictures of our Easter activities. We went to an Easter Egg hunt on a pig farm where Lydia got painted up like a bunny. We also decorated eggs at the Drennan's house. And the girls got their picture taken on our fireplace with their Easter gift!

Homemaker by Choice

I like to read several blogs on a variety of topics. Some on sewing, some on homeschooling and large families, some just to keep up with my friends. This is one of them: She is having a give away of some awesome DVDs! I've seen several of them before when I borrowed them from the library, but I'd love to have them in my own collection. In the Homestead Blessings videos I've learned several new recipes, and put them into practice. I've started making most of our bread, and we were inspired to start making our own butter. There's one about canning one about gardening that I think would be very useful! Anyway, pop on over and read all about it!
