Our Week "Off"...

With a week off from homeschooling as such, what did we do?

Both kids had colds, though they seem to be better now, or at least better than they were.

I made a pot of soup, with bone broth, that everyone loved. I also had time to make butternut squash orange soup, butternut squash risotto, and homemade hibiscus-raspberry-elderberry popsicles for the sick kids.

We had time to read more of this book...

And we enjoyed a poetry "teatime", at long last, with hot apple cider, pumpkin bars (aka pumpkin blondies), and Mr. Poe... I think we're going to have to have a poetry teatime at least once a month!

There was derby practice...

Fencing practice...

And then a free library catapult workshop...

Today we're off to the park as always on a Friday. I'm feeling refreshed, and ready to tackle next week!

  1. A catapult workshop? Awesome!!! Wish our library offered things like that (although we do have the world's best librarian for locating books elsewhere, so I can't complain too much).

    I can't get over how grownup your kids are looking all of a sudden!


What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.

Thanks for stopping by! I love comments :)
