This picture was taken BEFORE I put our flannel sheets on the bed. Flannel sheets make everything right with the world.
Matt has a bit of a project that he is working on. He borrowed his Dad's trailer and got some gravel from down by the creek to tidy up the back of the barn.
This is what it looked this past summer~ (under the junk on the ground lies the remnant of a concrete silo that Matt had to break apart and move.
As you can see, it is a far cry from what it once was!
Matt has plans to build an 'addition' to this spot, an overhang where he can store equipment out of the weather. You'll be seeing that soon enough, if I know my man the way I think I do.
Andrew set up a cow museum. He is obsessed.
Then Corynn set up a horse museum. She is not as obsessed about horses as Andrew is about cows, but you wouldn't know it from this picture.
|Speaking of obsessed....|
Have you ever tried making a galette without parchment paper? I had big plans for serving a rustic apple galette with a brown butter caramel sauce for some company and then it totally flopped 15 minutes before they arrived. I quickly tossed the apples in a pan and made apple crisp instead.
Maybe a galette will be in my future- but I will have to be smart enough to do the crust right on the pan next time. (duh.)
We have a no-feet-on-the-table policy in this house. Corynn must not have got the memo.
One Saturday morning breakfast, I served cinnamon apple oatmeal. This led to a discussion on cereal grains and what constitutes them, which led to a whiteboard presentation of grasses and what constitutes them, which led to mono and dicotyledons and what exactly they are which led to the dissection of an apple and a seed 'helicopter'.
Matt's contribution to our home learning.
On Thanksgiving, the girls asked to have curls in their hair. Then they asked me to as well. Here we are, all curlified.
