Having a hard time doing school lately

My father-in-law is not doing well, so I've been hit or miss for a while. I'll hopefully get back on track soon!

Not going to be Wordless today!

Well, we went  to our first renaissance festival yesterday!!! It was great! K drew pictures of the events we did and K told me everything we did as I wrote it down. So here are K's words! I think it's fun to hear it from a childs perspective!!

First I saw the Mother Goose and I held and pet Princess Buttercup. She hugged my neck. Then I saw the fairy. She gave me a gem. Then we went to the Palace Stage and watched part of a funny show because we didn’t get there in time. Then we went to Piccolo Pony, a giant rocking horse. At first I thought it was scary then I liked it. There were women rocking it back and forth. As we were walking we met the queen, king, and Princess Reagan. Then we saw the harp guy. I think he looked nice and he was nice. He gave me a stamp on my right hand. We went to the Joust tournament. While we were watching Mommy slipped away to King’s Kitchen. Then we went to the Haven after it was finished. We ate and played. Then we went to the petting farm. There were sheep there. The biggest yak you ever saw and there were geese there. I think Buttercup was nicer, probably she was trained. Then we went to the Rialto Stage and he did funny and dangerous stuff. Then we went to the Dutch Door Stage where they did all the dances. Then we went to the flying machine. It was funny. Then we left. I loved it! I didn’t like the weird tree though.

Preparing for the renaissance!

Today we celebrated Columbus Day by listening to an mp3 about Columbus, it lasted 30 minutes! Also we got out the globe and looked at where he went versus where he thought he went! Then we made a coat of arms in preparation for the Renaissance Festival. Finally we watched a short jousting  clip online.  That's about it for today!

Good days/ Bad days

Had a couple of good days, but then my house fell apart! God will balance this out somehow if I can just be still enough to hear His voice.
