I thought I'd do kind of a miscellaneous post about the kids. Between chores, homeschooling and outside activities, we've been keeping busy. Too busy. Hoping to rein it in a little. Seems like the harder I try to not get too busy, the more good things come up (especially with all the holiday activities), and I'm swamped again. I've got to get better at saying no.
The picture above is of Josiah and Hailey cleaning the refrigerator together.
Once a month, our homeschool group gets together for a show and tell time at the library. It is a wonderful way for young kids to get used to presenting and listening in front of their peers. Josiah is explaining what the bird's nest is made up.
Lately Hailey has been wanting me to do her hair up in an "almost bun", like Cinderella. I'm not really very good at doing hair, but I'm trying, for her sake.
Put a pair of bloomers under it, and I think it is absolutely adorable. She is really into pretty dresses right now. I love it!
Josiah started a kid's gourmet cooking class within our homeschool group called "Rock the Spoon". It has inspired some interesting creations at home. This was the lunch he made for himself the other day. He fried an egg, topped it with lunch meat, sauteed mushrooms and garlic powder ( a lot). then he surrounded his creation with sliced pickles and pretzels. He ate every bit of it and wanted to make another one! I just love seeing his creative side. He's really into presentation.
I snapped this picture of Josiah and Hailey snuggling in front of the fireplace one morning. Josiah can be so sweet with her, sharing his blanket and cuddling. Even though they get on each other's nerves sometimes, he really does love her and they have a very good relationship. I'm blessed in that regard.
Thanks for all your prayers concerning my son and I. His attitude has been a better today. Hoping for a much better week than the last.
Hope you all have a wonderful week and a Happy Thanksgiving!
