Saturday, Week 3
Today was a good day. We didn't touch a workbook, but I know they learned a lot today ; 0

First thing this morning were fall ball games. Can I admit that I'll be glad when they're in the same league again next year so I only have to spend 1.5 hours in the blazing sun at the ballpark instead of 3? I'm not a sports mom . . . I find it numbingly boring to watch little kids play baseball. It wouldn't be bad if it wasn't still so hot. I wish they'd move the season a month later in the year.

We got home and made a cake from scratch (the Classic Yellow Cake from King Arthur's Flour Cookbook) to celebrate Mary's birth. I really love to bake, and haven't done much in years! The boys helped with measuring and mixing and pouring.

While the cake was baking, they gathered all the Mary figurines we have around the house to stand around the finished cake. (will add picture later.) After that was done, C wrote out the grocery list that I dictated to him. He did a great job spelling on his own.

We ran to the library, where C chose a couple books he can read from the Nate the Great series and N chose a few books he wanted read to him. I picked up books I had requested a week or so ago.

The boys both helped in the grocery store, reading from the list and finding the necessary items. L got extremely frustrated right before we were ready to check out, but the other people in line were very sweet and helpful. The lines were LONG because they only had 2 checkers working, but one sweet woman spoke kindly to me, an older man loaded my groceries into my cart from the conveyor, and another family congratulated me on my beautiful family. Some days we've experienced nastiness and rude comments -- but it was all sunshine and smiles today!

While I was nursing L when we got home, I read 2 new books we received yesterday - Brigid's Cloak & Why Noah Chose the Dove. Both were wonderful reads with great messages.

I managed to mix up and frost the cake with a pale blue buttercream while carrying L in her sling. I still need to clear off the table to set up our tableau . . . and it's 7:45PM. ugh. Oh, well, I tried my best!

About Us
I'm a homeschooling mom with 3 wonderful kids! My boys are 6 & 7 and working at a 1st and 2nd/3rd grade level. We use Catholic Heritage Curriculum loosely, with lots of our own ideas added in. My boys attend an enrichment program one day per week during the traditional school year, which gives me extra time with my toddler daughter, and the chance to run some errands without my active boys.

This blog was a running list of what we do each school-day, but I tend to post here sporadically now. We usually school on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday to take DH's days off into account.
