Crazy busy

Hello everyone!!  I have not posted in quite a while.  Honestly, I'm not sure where the time goes.  We have been very busy on our little homestead.  The cow went into the butcher a few weeks ago and the two pigs went in last week.   Our freezers will be stocked.  Hubby has informed me that he'd like to get a meat grinder and we will attempt to make our own sausage.  Hopefully that will go well!

We also added two baby goats that we're bottle feeding and a new horse.

I'll have to upload the pictures of the horse for you to see.

One the school front, we've been very busy
  • Horseback riding lessons started again last week.  The girls have improved a lot from when they started two years ago.  This is helping with our horse also, as she is trained but hasn't been worked with in over a year.
  • Gymnastics class with other homeschoolers has been going on since November.  The three youngest participate in the class.  It has been a huge blessing.  There are only about four more weeks left then we will break until the fall.
  • We just finished up ice skating.  Twice a month during the winter, the ice rink has open skate on Monday afternoons.  The homeschoolers have taken full advantage of this.  I even skated.  It wasn't pretty as its been years since I skated but I didn't fall.  The girls have never really been on the ice and did great.
  • Read alouds:  I continue to read the Betsy books by Carolyn Haywood and The Boxcare Children books to youngest two.  They love the stories.
  • Bible:  Our American Heritage Girls troop is memorizing Proverbs 31 and the class at church is teaching the littles the books of the Bible.
  • Science:  The littles are studying the human body.  We just started and they are enjoying it so far.
  • History:  The littles are studying Native Americans
  • Math, Reading, Spelling, and Grammar continue.  Both littles are making huge strides this year but are a little behind so we are working hard to get caught up.
  • The two big girls are very independent in their work.  Princess is taking an Interior Design class from Currclick Live and Bug-a-Bug is taking a French class and just finishe da photography class from Currclick Live also.
I think that's it for now.  We've experienced some strange weather this winter.  We've had these really warm days and then it snows again.  We had a tornado touch down last Monday just south of town and then six hours later, it snowed.  We are expecting another storm tomorrow that may bring up to 8 inches of snow.

Have a wonderful weekend!!
