The Walnut Acre Daily -Taking A Deep Breath

Walking With the King
In God, whose Word I praise - In God I trust and am not afraid. What can mere mortals do to me? ~ Psalm 56:4

We Are Learning
We continued learning about plants and flowers today and also did our Ff phonics page.

This afternoon I worked on making some of the games I will be using with CJ and Michael this summer. I will do a full post on these when I finish them. I have a number of ideas that I'm still deciding how to implement.

We Are Reading
Here are the books the kids chose for me to read to them today.

There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly

Mickey's Alphabet Soup

Simba's Pride.

Homemaking Joys
Amanda did quite a bit of laundry and Austin washed the baseboards in the kitchen. I swept both porches and straightened up a little out there. 

In the Kitchen
We had leftovers for lunch today and dinner at church.
I had a craving for homemade crackers so I made two batches this morning. And they are all gone already. And no, I didn't eat them all, the kids definitely at their share as well. 

In the Garden
We had a lot of rain last night and the garden was too muddy to work in this morning.

On Our Nature Walk
It was also still really wet this morning when we would normally go for our nature walk so we didn't do that either. 

Other Outdoor Fun
The kids did play outside a lot but after things dried off. But somehow I never got any pictures. There was lots of swinging, bike riding and digging in the dirt. 

Out and About
This evening was the last evening of the Wednesday night children's ministry at our church for this school year. We ended with a fun evening that included awards, prizes and outdoor games. My class of four and five year old kids joined the elementary grade class for the evening. Michael received an award for perfect attendance. 

The middle school class and the teens celebrated by going to Common Ground for the evening and enjoying time with other youth groups. Austin and CJ both went and enjoyed it. Amanda chose to stay home.

I'm taking a deep breath tonight and feeling myself relax a little. In the last month Michael's weekly physical therapy appointments have come to an end, preschool drop off and pick ups three days a week are done, being my friends means of transportation to and from work three to five days a week has ended, and teaching Wednesday nights has ended. While I was glad to do each of these things, I am also ready for a change of pace.
