The cows stayed in...

...and we were all home together for the whole day. It was so wonderful!

After sleeping in a bit this morning, Andrew and I did the chores while Dad went and checked cows. We all got cleaned up then and did various things until lunch time.

This afternoon, we sang several hymns, then watched "IndoctriNation"! It was fun to see "Wally" again (from "The Widow's Might"). Before watching that movie, I knew in my heart that I wanted to home educate my children (Lord willing and all that I marry and have some) someday, but after seeing the film, I was even more convinced that this is the only right thing to do! I feel so blessed to have been home schooled!!!!

After Mother took a quick nap and Dad checked cows again, we all played a 2+ hour long game of Agricola (a farming board game). I was so pleased to have tied for first with Andrew, as I've never even been close to winning before. :)

We ate a quick supper, then Mom and the boys headed out for evening chores while Dad showered and I played in my new piano book... This evening, we watched a John Wayne movie about moving cattle across the plains. I sure am thankful for modern transportation methods!

Before I go, I thought I'd share a neat idea I saw on my friend, Rachel P.s' blog recently. Visit HERE to find out how to make roses out of leaves....

Good night everyone and have a great new week!

Dear Cora,
I'm thankful to hear you had a good day, and that you were blessed by the video you all watched. May the Lord be with you and bless you! :)
Lord willing I'll be posting on the stir fry soon. :)
Love, in Christ,
Carra
