Empty House

It is a strange feeling to have my children off somewhere without me. We have entered into another school year and now David and Rebecca are gone. Here David is going to school, and the next one is Rebecca taking her turn going to school. We just love taking pictures by that funny sign...

Before school started we spent some time together.

The children loved getting to go to the circus, it really was amazing!

Family Home Evening Jam

We have had fun creating things these past couple of family home evenings. Last week we decided to show our children how to make butter, and they were amazed! Yesterday we tried our hand at freezer jam, and the children are waiting anxiously for their first taste of jam that they helped to make!

I love seeing the excitement in the eyes of my children when we create something on our own. They love making our own flour from wheat we have stored as well. Perhaps someday we can have a garden and teach more of these preserving skills to our children.
