A Bright, Bright Sunshiney Day

Yesterday was just a beautiful, fantastic, warm day. It was one of those times where I was just so glad that we homeschool so that we can take advantage when there is a freak 70 degree day in the middle of January after there's been bitter cold and tons of rain for weeks upon weeks. Especially as today it is raining buckets once again!
Yesterday afternoon, I made dinner (we eat our main meal around 3:00), and set it up downstairs for the kids to serve themselves.
I set the mussels outside with a bag for the shells. I never would have thought that kids would like mussels, but there must be an allure to a food with its own shell.
We hauled the baby swing outside for Michael, and all sat around in the warm gorgeousness.
One other, most excellent advantage of homeschooling is that your school work can move with you, so that if you are still working while there is a sort of party-picnic going on, you don't need to be left out!


  1. Awesome!! I could use a few more days like that this week...
    Great pictures! Thanks for sharing them :)

  2. OOhhh-me too! It was so nice to be outside! I can't wait until we have grass! I think for summer I'll try to find a used baby swing to hang by the patio.
