Monday Morning already?

I don’t know where my days are going. I am getting much done and enjoying family time – but WHERE are the days going?

We were, in fact, snowed in this weekend. Starting Friday afternoon until yesterday. Our local news reported only 13″ of snow, so we fared better than many places – but I ventured out yesterday to get a few things at the store and the roads were really hazardous.

The sun was shining almost the entire day yesterday, so while that may have melted off some snow, we woke up to single digit temperatures (before wind chill). The good news is that Curly FINALLY got to go back to class. She missed 2 days last week. Roy reminded me that last year she missed her Valentines Day party at Mommys Day out, and its scheduled for Wednesday, so HOPEFULLY she can go this week!!!

School is getting busier – MUCH reading to do, video lectures to watch (4 videos per week for each of my 2 classes) and last week while nap strikes were on, it was interesting to juggle getting my lectures watched. BUT we got through the week, and so far so good. Each counseling class really has so much to offer and I’m really learning more than my brain can hold.

Curly & I made our first lapbook together. It was sorta based on The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. Such a cute book – and I found so many CUTE things online to work with. Gotta love free printables!!! I’ll get some photos taken and share them this week. It was our first attempt and she really likes being able to show it to people and explain the caterpillar’s life stages.

I’ve got some things planned this week to prepare for Valentines Day for them. Going to try to focus on activities rather than baking sweet treats…

Although that is one thing I do enjoy about being snowed in – being in my kitchen! I made a pot of potato soup and some homemade wheat bread (made with honey and white whole wheat flour) on Saturday, and then Roy & the girls threw a roast and veggies in the crock pot for Sunday. Oh, was it GOOD. We’ve been using a lot of raw garlic to help boost our immune system naturally. Curly even ate a clove yesterday – I was surprised.

So it’s another busy week, and I hope to bake more of this delicious bread. It was my first attempt so the dough needed to rise a little longer and bake a little longer – bread baking is one that takes practice. And I’ll be happy to practice it again!

Hope you all have a lovely week.
