St. Nicholas Views

This morning, the children actually woke up before I had set out the fruits and candy in their shoes.  Since it was before 6:00, I sent them back to bed.  We read some St. Nicholas stories while Mike and Laurel slept.  Clementines and chocolate coins joined Cream of Wheat for breakfast.

St. Nicholas Morning

The weather is decent for playing outside without being too bundled up, so the children have been enjoying the geodome climber that beanovich sent us.  She had a spare, of all things!  I had planned to get one, but never did--what a blessing!  It arrived while we were gone and Mike assembled it last Saturday.  Then it rained most of the week.  Any time is has been dry, they have been busy climbing and swinging.  You can see Willow's homemaking project below.


And now, it is time for me to get up and get some things done while Laurel sleeps and they play outside.  We are still keeping up with our school work and I also have plans to give the whole house a deep cleaning this week.  Wish me luck!

Geodome cover - FWIW, if you are handy (which I think you ARE) we took 4 twin sized sheets and sewed them together .... It's not perfect, but it makes a terrific tent, and our children love to camp under it!

I'm pretty sure we went over the top bar, but there is still a good-size circle open in the top, to facilitate star-gazing. ;)

We had to pin the sheets together with a million saftey pins, to have an idea of how to sew them together. ;)

A Blessed Wilderness

It was just like being in heaven, being in there. In those days there was no road. The park was all a blessed wilderness. I have often thought what a wonderful people we would have been if we had wanted to keep it that way.
