Peek At Our Week 17

        Besides the Medieval Fair this week it was pretty boring around here. It seems like January and February are always the let down months. The holidays are over and school gets pretty routine and boring. Skyler did work quite a lot in her new grammar journal this week though. I am so thrilled she still loves her journals!

Field Trip!!!!!

        It's here, it's here, IT IS HERE!!!!!!!!!!! The day we wait for all year long is here finally! The Medieval Fair has come and for one day we step back in time to an amazing world. This is the day we talk about in our house more than any other. We spend months finding the perfect dress for Princess Skyler and remembering all the past years of the fair and wonder what we will see and do this year. We can't wait to see all the familiar faces, learn arts long forgotten by most and eat our favorite food! For one day every single year I can count on everything being perfect. We will all run around like children seeing what is next to see. I can always count on this day being the best day of the whole year.

Peek At Our Week 16

       This week in Fox was suppose to be making an orange sponge cake. This week we realized it is very important that you read the entire recipe and watch what you are doing... It started off a bit rough when we realized we needed a special pan called a tube pan. We didn't have one and no way to go get one right then and there. We researched online and people stated they had used a loaf pan and it turned out fine. Great!! We had two of those so perfect! It would all work out, right...??? 

        I have taught Fox over and over how to separate the egg yolks from the egg whites and no matter what if I do not stand over him I catch him using his hand!! GRRRRRRR. Gross!!! I am in no way a chef but an actual chef did teach me how to do that so it gets frustrating when my child won't listen! I guess he will go his own way like everyone else though and hopefully do better in time!!
