A Little Midweek Update

1. Potty training!! Lydia is doing well - during the day she gets to wear little undies! Her treat is 2-3 M&M's depending on what is in the potty. I do have a picture of her sitting on the potty, but she looks like she woke up on the wrong side of the bed. One of those - only a mother could love faces - I'll spare you.

2. Let's put up pictures of inanimate objects! These are what we collected today, minus the white egg (just there for size reference).

3. School books have been finalized/decided upon/ordered. We hope to start the day after Labor Day. This is the last year of not having to report to the state!

4. My grandma is not doing well - she is in her nineties, and it looks like there is cancer throughout her body (tumor in her back and cancer in her bone marrow). She taught me how to bake an apple pie when I was 12! She and my grandad (who is 94) have always been such an example of hard work and contentment.

5. I'm closing this blog post, as I must run to the feed store to pick up some fleece. I bartered some of my soap and lotion bars for a couple of fleece.



  1. Hi Sarah,
    Aren't you excited to get your new school books? Since this is my first year I won't be homeschooling, I do miss the boxes that would come. My daughter who has a her forth baby due in December had to start early and my DIL will start the same day as you are starting school. That is funny she has been making soap too,
    You asked where I get my wool? I buy my wool from the Dorr Mill Store.
    Yes, I buy white and natural to dye with. I buy a yard of each when I buy it. That way I can get lots of different colors. I have over dyed colors too but for the true colors I am looking for I have found white and natural to be truest to what I am dyeing.
    I will pray for your Grandmother. Poor dear. I will pray there will be no pain.
    Blessings today,

  2. Your eggs are so gorgeous! I'm a bit jealous. I'd love to have chickens and fresh eggs in my own yard :) Beautiful!
