Five simple things

"TGIF" Thank Goodness It's Friday.  Happy Friday.  It's the weekend. YAY!

1.  This Day.
Because Sundays are the best days to be lazy and this Sunday last week was the best!  While being lazy we also baked some Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits and they were yummy! 

2.  This Learning.

Because we've been learning to count back money in the Red Snail Classroom, and Skylar picked it up so fast!  He wants to have a mock grocery store next week and price everything to give back change.  I think it is a wonderful idea!

3.  These Cookies.

Because we all made them together, but Skylar did the most work.  He was so proud to say he made some cookies.  

4.  These Apples.
Because they tasted wonderful after being dehydrated.  We are making more this weekend, A LOT MORE, and are going to add them to our stash of prep foods we are building.

5.  This Moment.

Because when Skylar reads to me, we both learn from each other.  And to be honest with you, nothing is better than hearing what a great personality you child has.

We are in the middle of winter here already.  Last night I had to bring in a lot of my plants because it got as low as 20 degrees!  I hope with it getting this cold already, we get a little of the white powder during December or January.
