Updates from the Homestead
We have added a new member to our family!! Our sweet Alpine doe, Bonnie, delivered a little baby boy yesterday!! And he is so cute! He looks more Nubian than Alpine as his daddy, Clyde, is Nubian. His coloring looks just like mama. Since it was pretty cold out I pulled out one of my baby goat sweaters and put it on him to help keep him warm ( http://thefamilyhomestead.com/crochetgoatsweater.htm ). By this morning he was all warmed up and walking around with mama dad…

January life on our homestead is pretty routine (other than the birth of a baby goat!). For Isaac and Sierra their daily focus is school and we are making good progress through the school year. At the beginning of the school year I shared that I was using Switched on Schoolhouse for my son Isaac. He is using it for English, science and history (we still use Saxon for math). After a half year of using the program I have to say I really like it!! It has saved me a lot of time in correcting papers and organizing a schedule to make sure we are on track. SOS does all of that for me. Isaac likes the program as well. I am pretty sure at this point that we will be using it again next year for him.
That is from the homestead for now!!
