well, there is this quilt that I have about halfway assembled. But I have set it aside and will nibble away on it's borders as time allows.
School starts tomorrow. Actually, it started tonight with a fire arm safety "class" from Dad. We are using the Laura Ingalls Wilder books as a basis for a unit study(The Prairie Primer, by Margie Gray.) Pa went ahuntin' and so we get gun safety- which is always a good idea for children to respect fire arms.
I have breakfast planned- a rare treat, as I usually rely on bagels or cereal. But I'm thinking oatmeal and biscuits might be appreciated for waking them up earlier than usual. The weather has turned chilly and the mornings especially so. I have a fresh box of pencils- never have enough, it seems, and we are all excited. OK, the older boys are less so, but I'll give them a pep talk about their influence on the younger ones and I am sure we can wring some enthusiam out of them, too! I mean, they are out on the back forty target practicing- what could they possibly have to gripe about? It's the ideal boys' school. We'll be learning about Grizzly bears and eating pork rinds all in the first week!
