Blackberries and curriculum

Hannh Chase and Ethan picken

Ethan sharing with Cody

When we started picken

A day running again. we ran it seems everywhere today. But they had to get done. We came home in time for nap time and some cleaning. Made breakfast for dinner and it out to my hubby. As he ate the children and me picked some yummy blackberries. I found the mother load and took a wacker to weedthem . The kids that it was pretty cool to see old mom here swinging it like a mad woman. Felt pretty good to. As we were pickin Ethan was a eating. He turned purple ing so and looked so cute. very once in a while Chase would eat one and spit it right back out and giggle. Hannah and Cody didnt really want to eat many until they were washed. Im so glad we found all the berries. I was worried we only had a few bushes and they didnt look very big but man oh man we scored big time. They all are pretty red still but turning. we picked all the ones that were ready. We ate all of them :)

We have half the windows in now :) They look so pretty. The hubby and I were talking ad looking at the front porch and I talked him into putting a porch fan in so we can sit in the summer with a breeze na watch the children play. Then I said I wanted a swing on there so when we are old we can swing and watch the grandkids play. He just smiled :) Oh its to fun to talk about the new house :) I cant wait! he poor hubby has just been out there sweating away and doing everything he can. Im so proud of him.

Chase made again all day in underwear! Every store, every stop we made he peed in the potty. Even wore underwear at nap time!! Thats a big deal. Night time still doing the Bum-genius and wool cover. Way to wet for not.

Where are you getting all the resources for your Little House series? That is what the girls and I are doing starting next month. But I am compiling it on my own. Got any good websites or ideas you can reccomend?

Hey Amanda, we have borrowed alot from the library. They have the other books for our unit study and then some. I have the whole book set myself if you want to start borrowing them. But Union has every thing on Prairies and the Little house short chapter books Cody loves. Also there is a site called and they have the WHOLE study done for me. Everything. I just go and print what I need from there. Its amazing.
