It's been a pretty busy week with doctor and vet appointments, but we've managed to find some time for fun too. We adopted a kitten from a local rescue. His name is Simon and he's so sweet! We're working on slowly introducing him to our resident cat, Penny. Ben and I went on a Christmas shopping date. We had several interesting science experiments this week with craft dough and yeast. Baked brie with French bread and apple butter. All is well. We're gearing up for an exciting weekend as well.

Wow what a week! The boys had their cousin to play with all weekend. They loved every moment. We got together with family a few times. Baked a chicken. We got our firat Christmas cards in the mail and sent our out too. Made balloon animals and played with tinker toys. We had parties for stuffed kitty cats and homeschooled. We even had a short jaunt at the ER because Silas fell and smashed into my bed. Lots of "adventures." Have a great weekend everyone!

This has been a really great week for us. Thanksgiving is our favorite holiday around here. No pressure about gifts or worrying about forgetting someone's card. It's all about family. Making food and sitting around a table enjoying laughter and getting to know each other on a deeper level than the ordinary hellos and goodbyes of everyday life. I didn't take many photos...none of the huge spread we had for 2 days straight. We put up our tree this week to cheer up the kids since they'd been sick for a while. It worked...laughter and fun. We baked cookies together and I made a pineapple upside down cake..my favorite. Just some fun memories. We had our first big snow of the season. The kids have done a bunch of snowball fighting and goofing off in the snow. My brother and nephew came in from california. We have had the best of times together. I love my family.

Along with my recent decision to extremely limit social media, I am bringing back the blog as a way to keep record of our weekly activities in homeschool and life in general. The plan is to post once a week with photos and videos of the life we've lived that week. Should be fun. Enjoy! :)
