Breakfast with berries and cream is always a good way to start out the day. J made the coffee, I made the waffles. The boy cleaned the berries and we were all set. I love breakfasts together. It is rare for us to be able to eat together on the days that J works, without it feeling rushed. I have been making a better effort to get up early and just get breakfast started earlier, and it is making our mornings much nicer. (note to self, getting up early is not just for "me time", I can get up early to help others too)
We made an effort to finish some things we've been working on and get them out of the way early in the day. So we tackled math and history and cleaning. Go team! The littlest two were kept busy with this novel idea....
They had so much fun!
After lunch, we headed outside to play. The sunshine was so warm, the sky so blue. The grass was dry enough to sit on while I weeded the asparagus bed. I cut fire wood. (for real) They had some jedi training going on.
There was some bird watching...or maybe he was being a spy....
the new couch was incredibly helpful with this today. No one grumbled a bit and they all rushed to get a good spot on the couch! After we rested, it was time to get to work on dinner! Hen helped with the rolling out of the dough.
Have you ever seen such a cute kitchen helper?
We made chicken artichoke calzones, one of J's favorites.
Crocus blooming, and hollyhock's green growth.
