Wednesday on the Homestead
Wednesday is here and I have not posted on this blog since last Friday! Well life has been busy..
Right now four of my children are doing the state required end of the year testing for our homeschooling. Emily, Leanne, Jacob and Sierra will go today for the 2nd and last day of testing.
Then I can almost say the year is over.. Sierra has a few math lessons to finish up and Emily and Leanne do too. Leanne may be doing it longer however, in less than one year she will have made it through TWO Saxon math books! I am very proud of her. She has done/is doing a lot of hard work to meet this goal she set out in front of herself last year.
So as the days here are getting warmer and the hints of summer are getting brighter.. the school year is almost over and we can enjoy our summer time break.
Besides testing today I have laundry to make sure is moved through the system and floors to sweep and mop and vacuum, the bathroom to pick up, and clutter to manage and tossâ€¦ sounds like the usual.
Oh yes.. I have laundry soap to make tooâ€¦

I have some new recipes to post soon, just need the available computer time to do it:
~Our ice cream turned out pretty good, so I will post my recipe
~Emily has made this yummy onion soup for us several times now and we love it!!! It is based on a recipe based on one she found in a cookbook.. of course she tweaked and made a few changes in it.. she canâ€™t help messing around with recipes either!
~A new pizza crust recipe. I love the one we usually make but this one has been equally good.
~a new whole wheat oatmeal muffin recipe
So stay tuned for all the goodies to come!
