The Walnut Acre Daily - A Slow Day

Words to Live By

Matthew 6:19-21

"Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."

Homeschool and Independent Learning

Besides our reviewing our memory verse and new song we also watched five short videos - Jesus Loves Me:Kid's Song, I Am a Pizza Song, Letter O Song, Counting Down From Twenty Song, and
Counting Firetrucks.  They also completed math worksheets and Lauren colored a purple pizza picture.

Books We Enjoyed Today

The first three books are the books I read with Michael, Lauren, Damien and Christopher and the last book is the one I am reading myself.

In the Kitchen

We took a break from pizza themed food today and had other simple meals instead. I've tried to keep things somewhat bland because Michael's been having tummy issues the last couple days. For breakfast we had toast, bananas, yogurt and juice and for lunch we had chicken salad sandwiches, salad and applesauce. Normally we are at church for dinner on Wednesday evenings but I kept Michael home this evening and cooked us some Ramen noodles for dinner.

Around the House

I cleaned up the kitchen after breakfast and after dinner and also did some laundry.

Austin did the daily cleaning in the living room and playroom and cleaned up the kitchen after lunch. He also washed the living room and playroom windows and cleaned under the furniture in the living room.

Amanda cleaned out the guinea pig cage and did the daily cleaning in the mudroom and downstairs bathroom She also did some laundry.

Outdoor Fun

Austin took the little kids out to play for about a half hour this morning. 

We Are Going

Although Michael and I didn't go to church this evening, the rest of the family did. It's was the first Wednesday evening back after the Christmas break and I was looking forward to catching up with everyone but there will be plenty of time for that later.

  1. Sounds like a good day! Thank you for the Bible verse you shared—it's just what I needed today.

  2. I like how you share what you do daily. It is nice to focus on the positives, and see how productive we really are. You are right about sometimes we just don't feel that enough was done, but this is a great way to tell that doubt, "So there!" Keep sharing, I love it.
