Daja’s June Menu

Menu Plans No Comments

Here it is!  There’s not too much to say about it, except that we will be eating outside A LOT!  The weather is lovely, my garden is producing, so you can find me laying on a blanket in the backyard eating tomatoes off the vine and reading novels or fairy tales to the children. Read More

June Goals

Goals No Comments

Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summer day listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time.  ~John Lubbock

May has come and gone in a flash!  School is almost out and the itch for summer has truly set in, especially since Daja posted our Top 100 List of fun things to do this summer!  Seriously, for us homeschooling mamas it’s now getting near impossible to finish!  I’m ready to get my fun on!  So in that theme of having fun we’re setting some great goals for June.  Remember to jump in wherever you are, so that you will always be prepared for “life’s happenings!” Read More

Prepared For A Picnic

Blog No Comments

I feel like  Summer has officially begun!  How ’bout you?  Sure, we are still schooling (and probably will at least three days out of the week all summer long).  And yes, it’s still actually Spring.  Summer is just in the air.  In fact, we just got back from the beach!  (May I recommend going to the beach the day AFTER Memorial Day?  It was practically empty!  Lovely!)  Now that the weather is warm we will be cooking and eating outside as often as possible.

May Goals

“The world’s favorite season is the spring. 
All things seem possible in May.”
–  Edwin Way Teale

April was a whirlwind.  We feel sincerely tired.  We started with a three day home revival meeting with Daja’s dad, then Passover and Easter.  We had a camping trip shortly after.  And then the kids took their yearly standardized state achievement tests.  Kristina’s daughter made the swim team and Daja’s son made brown sash in Kung Fu.  In the middle of all that we got a short bout of colds.  Yet, we shouldered on!  We got our gardens planted and that makes us happy.  We also have made our fermented foods (kefir, kombucha, sourdough and yogurt) a way of life.  They’ve now become part of our regular homemaking routines!  And that feels great!
