Well, we have ONE day of school left! What a year! We started our school year last July, with a pretty loose summer schedule. It was actually helpful later in the year to be a few days ahead. I didn't have to worry if there were days we couldn't "do school" because we were already ahead of the game. Now, though, I am ready for a break - and I know Rory is!
We're working on the house (mostly Rory and I). So far, I feel like I have a handle on the kitchen, the living room, and finally the playroom. We found the middle of the room today - just a few corners that need straightened, but the table is clear, and the toys are off the floor, which is a GREAT improvement!
I added red beans to my canning pantry. All of the jars even sealed the first try! It was fun, because I had a friend over who is interested in learning to can. Funny that I should be a mentor, since I'm pretty clumsy at it, but we had a good time, anyway!
I made a new bread recipe yesterday, and a new cookie recipe today, both with oatmeal. The recipes are out of the "Simply In Season" cookbook. So far, everything I have tried in there has been very good! (I even got the canned bean recipe from it).
I decided to try a book on tape from the library. I LOVE to read, but don't always get the time I'd like, so I decided to try listening. It's hard to do with the kids, but I found that I can listen while working in the kitchen, and it makes the time go by more pleasantly.
Lily spent all day yesterday in big-girl panties! She managed to use the potty all day! Today, not so much, but she's trying!
Rory is sleeping with two fireflies in a jar - yay, summer!
Both kids are asleep, so I'm going to straighten the kitchen, and get ready for bed! Good Night!
