In our School:
We are keeping up with our our lessons plans but I am suffering for the first time from a little burn out. I know this happens to us all so I am hoping it is for the short term. Just the other day my daughter mentioned that we are not taking quite as many field trips, I have a few more trips planned in the upcoming weeks so maybe that will help me get over this minor burn out.
Where are we going in the next week or two:
We are going to a pottery class, a cultural center to learn about Hindu, continuing to have our Science lessons with friends and heading out to the Viking Festival in York.
What we are reading:
I just finished reading The Apothecary's Daughter by Julie Klassen and have now started reading the Shadows on the Crown by Patricia Bracewell.
The kids and I are reading lots of books on India and the mythology of that country. This is a interest of my daughter. We are also reading about the Hindu faith.
Princess is reading the series Son of Angels by Jerel.
Little Man is reading, and rereading How to play Minecraft for beginners. LOL:)
What I am thinking/worrying about:
We are moving this summer...back to the states. I have mixed feelings on this. I have truly loved our experiences living here in England. While we are heading back to our old home I am worried about how and where we will find such fantastic home education resources. I don't particularly like where we are moving too, even though that is where our house is. The area was not very welcoming and the children and I never felt like we could find our place. So moving back there is bringing back old insecurities and some bad memories. I hope the children and I can manage the move back there much more easily this time around. I am doing a lot of praying for an easy transition back home for us all.
What are we watching:
We are watching The story of India on Netflix. I hope to be going out with some friends to see Les Miz this weekend, I feel like I am the last person on earth to see this movie:).
What am I cooking:
We went to a local Pub and I had with out a doubt the best corn beef hash in my life. I am not exaggerating (I don't even like corn beef hash, usually). I asked the pub for the recipe and they gave it to me much to my surprise. The recipe calls for you to Brine the meat for up to 2 weeks. I have never done this before so I am in the process of giving this a try. If it works and I am able to recreate this fantastic dish I will share the recipe on the blog at some point in the future.

I ordered some Henna paste from amazon and the kids and I enjoyed experimenting with designs on our hands.
|I don't think any one will be hiring me for henna designs any time soon:)|
