This week I started a sourdough starter. So far it’s doing pretty well. I really want to figure out making sourdough products. Knowing how to use sourdough helped Ma feed her family through “The Long Winter” when she did not have yeast available.
I also asked my children to write how their ideal day would be scheduled. Then I took all of their schedules and made a master schedule for all of us. I think I did pretty well at giving everyone pretty much what they wanted. We’ll see how this schedule works this school year.
This article really spoke to me. I know I could do more to be more self-disciplined and get more done every day. I know there are times that I waste time. That’s one reason why I made a schedule up for us. I just always feel better when I’m moving steadily through my day accomplishing my to do list instead of looking back on a day with only one or two items crossed out.
More than one person in our family has suffered from eczema at one time or another. Shortly after my second baby I started a battle with eczema that lasted months. It would clear up and come back. It was so frustrating. Anyway, I tried a lot of different things. Different approaches worked for different people in our family. Eczema is certainly not something that can be fixed just one way like some sicknesses. Anyway, this article has a soak for baths that couldn’t hurt if you’re suffering from eczema and may even help.
My seven-year-old does so much better in school when I let him get physically active at regular intervals. Now we’re going to be able to have some variety in his activity which will make it more fun.
I know mom’s enjoy the first day of school – routine, sweet routine – but the children usually not so much. How about making it special with an idea from this post?
And one final post about school. I love the idea here for making a flip chart for defining and giving examples of parts of speech. I definitely want to have some of my children make these this year. I think it would really help them.
This picture is too funny and is how I feel sometimes when I’m working and I have little eyes watching my every move.
How soon are your children starting back to school?
