Shucking Corn

Posted in Homemaking, and Photography

Project 365 – #243 On Saturday, we picked up our Bountiful Baskets order which included a nice large box of corn.  We’ve enjoyed some of the fresh corn, but today, it was time to get it all shucked, boiled, and frozen to enjoy at a later date.  I had forgotten how much I really don’t care for shucking that many ears of corn at once.  There is a reason that we all had to do it as kids.  It’s because the adults didn’t really want to do it.  **wink**  It’s worth it though because we ended up with lots of…

Last week, the curriculum set arrived.  Foundations is actually set up in an adult, group study format.  The curriculum set comes with…

Hopping Along

Posted in Family, Homeschooling, and Photography

Project 365 – #241 Isn’t that guy just too cute?  He (or maybe she?) was kind enough to hop out from the little cave to allow me to snap a few pictures before hopping back into the cooler shade that it afforded.  Since the other animals were not so inclined to help out, this critter was the only one that is being featured.  lol! Yesterday, I was once again reminded of how much I use the internet for research and preparation for our homeschool day.  After lunch, I went to get on the internet to try to do some prep…
