Life for us is rarely slow, despite how it might look on my blog. Thankfully the school holidays break up our usual home school/distance education routine. During the term our mornings are taken up with maths leaflets, spelling words, satellite lessons and the general juggle of life.
Instead of school, for the last two weeks our time has been taken up with early morning trips to the horses.
Reading has been high on my list of things to do. Alphabet Family Journal is a magazine that actually feels more like a book. The thick pages are full of real stories and creative photography and the whole package feels simplified and refreshingly un-styled. Thanks Luisa for my special copy.
We have packed up chops, soup and bread and headed to the paddock to cut firewood. Actually, the big people cut firewood while the little people played on tree stumps that become imaginary boats and planes while poking sticks in the fire and daydreaming.
Some mornings we have cooked and then lingered just a little longer over morning tea.
The rather unruly vegetable garden has finally had some proper attention.
Sheep work has been in full swing which has meant plenty of warm food and thermoses to keep the workers fuelled in this cold weather.
Farewell school holidays, you will be missed!
Happy Sunday friends x
