The Walnut Acre Daily - Thursday, May 24, 2012

Walking With the King
Then I will purify the lips of the peoples, 
that all of them may call on the name of the Lord
and serve Him shoulder to shoulder.
~ Zephaniah 3:9

We Are Learning
Our bug unit fun this morning included our usual memory verse, song, and stories as well as our memory game

on online video

and a Dd is for dragonfly coloring page.

We also did a Dd phonics page.

We Are Reading
The kids chose three books for me to read to them . . .

Disney's The Prince and the Pauper

Precious Moments: Loving

The Littlest Bunny.

We also read The Animals on the Ark from Bible Animal Stories for Bedtime.

Homemaking Joys
We got a little cleaning done - Austin cleaned out the refrigerator drawers and Amanda washed the cabinet fronts in the kitchen and the upstairs bathroom cabinet fronts and baseboards. Also the basic picking up, sweeping, vacuuming, dishes and a little laundry. 

In the Kitchen
I've been needing to bake bread for a few days but couldn't seem to be able to stay home long enough to do it. Today I finally got two loaves of bread baked.

Friday I got 40 pounds of sweet potatoes from a friend. My intention was to cook and mash them and put them in the freezer. But today was the first day I was able to get to them. I only got a few done but it's a start.

Yard and Garden
Austin, Amanda and I all worked on pulling some weeds out of the garden today while we were out with the little ones. While I was out there our cat, Scout, joined me.

Once again, I got lots and lots of radishes from the garden.

On Our Nature Walk
We took a short walk today and stopped at the closest good play area for awhile. 

Other Outdoor Fun

Out and About
I didn't have to go anywhere today. It's been a busy week with two meetings at school, church, taking my friend to and from work, and taking Lauren to and from preschool. And tomorrow there is an end of year party at Lauren's preschool that her teacher invited me to bring my preschoolers to as well. All the going and going has had good results and the party tomorrow will be fun, but for today - I'm grateful to stay at home. 

Austin, Amanda and Michael are spending the evening at my parents house, which is a Thursday evening activity they all enjoy.

And Doug is at a class at the Rescue Squad. A lot of classes that he needs to maintain his EMT certification can be taken online but sometimes there are classes he has to go to as well. This one is a skills drill. I'm not exactly sure what that involves though.

Other Notes and News
CJ's hamster has been escaping regularly from her cage and I'm afraid she's going to get away completely or get eaten by a cat. So this afternoon Doug reinforced the cage in the corners where we think she's escaping.

Hopefully this will keep her safely in her own home.
