Bread making was just 1 activity at Home School Day!

  • Since Robby was out getting the brand new tire this morning, it was just me and the kiddos.  We quickly got the house ready for homeschool day and even had some time to read a Van Gogh book and movie. 
  • When our friends arrived, we started our day.  Everyone had read Sarah, Plain and Tall so our first activity was to make bread, biscuits and cornbread.  The kids were all split in different groups and each had a recipe to follow.  
  • Next up was a trivia game with questions from the book while they were all working hard at making butter in glass jars. Reagan and Anderson's team lost and they were not too pleased with me.  After that, it was lunch time and our dessert today was our biscuits, bread and cornbread-the 17 kids ate it up!  They lined up to get some type of bread and then I would scoop a huge glob of the delicious butter on top.  My boys went through the line about a zillion times before I cut them off.  Hmm, maybe we will have some of the leftovers for breakfast.
  • The kids then had some play time before it was time for them to perform a skit about the play.  And then we kicked the kids out of the house to play.  The weather was perfect today and the kids enjoyed playing outside.  After our friends left, I still made the kids stay outside for a while-they did manage to get a popsicle from me and then to get another from Robby!
  • When Robby was done with work, he decided he needed a night out with the kids since I was heading out to Bunko. Plus, Campbell said "she needed to go somewhere" since she had not left the house today (even though she had had a very full day of activity)
  • So off they went to McDonald's with a playground and I picked up a few things around the house. The kids played well at McD's and everyone helped out since there was no stroller and Robby was carrying around Whitman.  After eating, all the kids played and watched the other kids who were climbing everywhere except where they were supposed to.  Keaton kept pointing that out to Robby and everyone else who could hear her. (Didn't seem to phase the kids' mom though.)
  • They made it home in time for showers and to finish up Ninja Warrior.  It was the US vs. the World episode. The kids were disappointed to watch the US lose by just a few seconds.
  • Teeth brushed and soon the kids were off to Bible story and bed.
