Home.- Lately















Cooking.
Cleaning.
Warmer weather.
Lessons.
Play time.
Library visits.


Here we are. - Warmer weather has arrived. Okay, but wait just one minute...
we're being told we'll get some colder weather this week. - Maybe even another snow shower.
I've come to expect this kind of weather.
We're definitely looking forward to spring.

Lately, our trips to our local library are happening more often. I'll usually pick out a few books for both girls. - Every so often, my soon to be five year old daughter will want to pick out her own books. She's constantly reminding me about how much, and how fast she is growing.
I recently checked out a book on fun ways to garden for the whole family. I'm sure we'll get some good use out of this book. Last year I planted a few vegetables in pots. I'm thinking about expanding this year. - A bigger garden, and a lot more herbs. Do you like to garden?

Last month, I made a large batch of Kimchi. I have really been enjoying having Kimchi in our home. I remember when I was little, my mother would sit out in the backyard, and make batches of fresh kimchi.  I recently came across a Paleo beef soup recipe, and it has been a hit in our home. The flavors of this soup are absolutely wonderful. It's packed with vegetables, and I'm actually shocked that my oldest daughter has enjoyed it so much. -She's our picky eater.

We just finished up our mountain unit study. Next month we'll be moving on to learning about plants.- Botany.  I've started gathering our materials. I'll be checking out a few books/videos from the library as well.

Our 17 month old daughter has been a bit fussy. She's been having pain from her teeth that are currently breaking through. -She's all about cuddles right now.  -And this mom could really use more sleep!

So here we are.
Life has been treating us well.
And I really hope the same goes for you!
