The Walnut Acre Daily - Garden Work, Homemade Cheesy Bread and More

Walking With the King
 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.  After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage one another with these words. ~1 Thessalonians 4:16-18

We Are Learning
We watched two videos about plants and flowers and the kids colored two flower pictures. They also did the Gg phonics page.

We Are Reading
Here are the stories the kids and I read today - 

Mickey's Alphabet Soup

There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly

David and Goliath

Then Animals on the Ark from Bible Animal Bedtime Stories for Bedtime

In the Kitchen
I've been experimenting with making these cheesy breads today and they are absolutely delicious. I'm going to try some other toppings over the next week or so and then I'll do a full post with the recipe. This is one experiment that the whole family liked.

In the Garden
I pulled what I think will be one of the last bunches of radishes this morning. As it's getting warmer and the plants are getting older they just aren't doing as well. Also, some are going to seed without really forming a good radish.

I also picked peas from the very few plants that came up. There were just enough to have a few for lunch. The kids had fun helping shell them.

Both Austin and Amanda spent some time working on pulling the weeds out of the carrot rows this morning.

On Our Nature Walk
Lauren found a ladybug this morning while we were on our walk that she carried around with her for much of the time.

We also watched some water striders on the water. It's fun to watch them skate over the surface of the water but they are much too fast too get a good picture.

Other Outdoor Fun
Michael was given a bubble shooter yesterday for perfect attendance at KidWorx. After waking up at midnight and again at 5:45 wanting to play with it, he finally got to use it this morning. 

Out and About
I have not had to go anywhere today, and I loved it.
Doug and CJ went to ACE this evening to get a tool Doug needed to work on his truck, and Austin, Amanda and Michael went to their grandparents house for the evening.
