Busy Monday - Boy Scouts, SPCA, and More - The Walnut Acre Daily - Monday November 25, 2013


And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. ~ Colossians 3:17


What a busy day! But it was the kind of busy I enjoy. Here are a few glimpses into our day.

Reading lessons - reading a Bob Books reader and doing a set of word sorts.

Playing games - Hello Kitty Bingo and UNO.

Simple Pilgrim and Native American stick puppets.

Austin working on his math lesson with Doug and Amanda practicing on the drums. 

Books and Games We Enjoyed Today


The kids did not want to wake up this morning so we started a little late. We had cereal and fruit for breakfast just before we rushed into our day.

For lunch we had leftover Cheddar Chicken Chowder, and Amanda fried some potatoes and bacon, adding a little cheese for extra flavor. It was delicious! We had applesauce as well to round out our meal.

This evening I made a macaroni chicken cheese casserole and corn for dinner. We also had some potato salad left over from Sunday lunch. 


I am told (by Amanda) that this one of the prettiest little hens ever! She took these photos this afternoon to prove it.


My niece and nephew have been wanting guinea pigs and we thought there might be some at the SPCA so this afternoon we went out there to see. There were no guinea pigs but we did have fun visiting the dogs and cats. Amanda enjoyed introducing some of her favorite dogs to the other kids. Michael was upset by the noise of the dogs barking at first and I wasn't sure if he was going to be able to stay in the room, but he worked through it and was able to enjoy seeing the dogs after a few minutes. 

I'm sure he enjoyed the relief of a quiet room full of cats. Amanda is starting to think about getting another cat but I'm not sure I'm ready for that. 

This evening Austin and Michael went to Scouts. Doug went with Austin to his meeting and I went with Michael. The boys in Michael's group played a game to review the things they have been working on so far - recycling, safety, nutrition, and the rules of bowling. They have also been talking about citizenship and honesty. Then each boy wrapped a gift to give to someone special. They had a snack and then because there was a little time left they played a game of I Spy. 

Austin is still working on his art merit badge and is getting close to earning it. They also worked on plans for their annual Old Fashioned Christmas weekend in a couple weeks. They are really looking forward to that. I heart what the menu is for the weekend and now I want to go. Some of the things on the menu for various meals are smoked turkey, mashed potatoes, pumpkin pie. scrambled eggs and bacon, chocolate cake, pizza with add your own toppings, and more. They are going to have a gift exchange and that weekend and also holding elections for positions within the troop. It should be an interesting weekend for them.
