New School Year, New Home, New Curriculum

I was talking to my husband tonight and telling him how many blog entries about cooking I've done since we moved to Pennsylvania. I said I think there are a few reasons for this: 1. I really like our new kitchen. 2. The children are really into cooking right now. 3. We are surrounded by wonderful local farmer's markets and orchards!

Believe it or not, we do more than cooking around here. We spend a lot of time reading, writing, and learning new things. We are enjoying our new school year. We are trying out a new curriculum and are very satisfied! I have blog entries in my head that I hope to enter soon. Some will contain poetry, creative writing, and artwork from the children.

Today, I'm going to share a couple pictures we took today. The girls enjoyed making necklaces out of cereal. No one was eating it, so we decided to use it for a craft project.

I spent some time today cuddled up on the couch with the boy listening to him read. Actually I spend time doing this everyday with both of the older children. Next to teaching the children God's Word, watching them learn to read is the next best thing I get to do as their teacher.

Thanks for stopping by! I've enjoyed visiting your site and may have to stop back when I have more time and pick up a recipe or two!

I was reminded that sometimes life gets too busy and perhaps we need to stop and do a fun thing like making cereal necklaces! My girls would love that :-)
