Freedom, A Productive Day and More - The Walnut Acre Daily Tuesday May 26, 2015

WORDS TO LIVE BY

Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
2 Corinthians 3:17

TODAY'S QUOTE

Freedom is the oxygen of the soul. ~  Moshe Dayan


YARD AND GARDEN

I was so happy that we got some rain this evening. The gardens are going to love it! 

LEARNING TOGETHER

Michael looks so serious here! I guess writing the word 'pond' is important stuff.


~ Some of the resources we used today ~


 

WORKING TOGETHER

We got a lot of work done today. Austin took care of the outside animals both morning and evening. He also completed a lot of the cleaning jobs on our monthly housecleaning list (everything he could do on the weekly list was already done). 

Amanda took care of the inside animals and made lunch, washed dishes, did the vacuuming, cleaned the downstairs bathroom, cleaned her room and did her laundry. 

I did five loads of laundry, gave both boys haircuts, and did some cleaning upstairs, dishwashing, cooking, and schoolwork with the kids. I also did the midday care of the animals. 

When Doug came home from work this evening he worked in the garage for awhile. He's working on fixing a pressure washer for a friend.

OUT AND ABOUT

Michael and I went to Food Lion this morning to get a few things. This afternoon Amanda and Michael went to my sister's for a few hours. They went for a walk and then Amanda helped with some things there and Michael played with the kids.

Wading in the Creek and More - The Walnut Acre Daily - Monday May 25, 2014

WORDS TO LIVE BY

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. 
Galatians 5:22-23

TODAY'S QUOTE

Today, fill your cup of life with sunshine and laughter. ~ Dodinsky


ANIMAL UPDATES

Amanda asked me to take her turtles some grated carrots so while I was there I took a picture. Isn't he handsome?



LEARNING TOGETHER

Since it was such a beautiful morning Michael and I took some of his schoolwork to the table outside.



Here are some of the resources we used today.





PLAYING TOGETHER

Beautiful weather means lots of time outside.



This evening we walked down to the creek. It's been a long time since we went back there and the path was very overgrown. But when we finally got to the creek it was definitely worth. They had so much fun wading in the water!
