As a fun addition to our indepth state studies this year, the girls have been appliqueing the states. Rosie Mae is doing hers in purples while Sharon has chosen to use blues. It's been an enjoyable process all working together. And once they're done they'll each have a small-ish quilt.
It's not often that birds hold still when I want to take a picture of them. I was pleased to be able to get a decent one of this bird of prey.
Amish church peanut butter is still one of my favorites. I'll share the recipe one of these days.
Our daily school books ... and the stack I go through every morning to assign their lessons and check their work from the previous day. Steven's book pile isn't pictured here. He's on his way to becoming a reader, and is so excited every day to learn everything he can. I'm hoping he keeps this enthusiasm for learning for the rest of his life.
The downside to this week was when we discovered in a somewhat scary way that someone in our family is allergic to nuts. Swelling lips, hives, and more. Yikes!!
Rosie Mae loves creating art. So does Steven. This is a piece they did one evening.
