What a busy time of year it has been! I don't see it letting up anytime soon, so we're trying to sneak in special, little moments, between scheduled activities and schoolwork, when we can. For example, our Internet was down last Thursday, resulting in us not being able to access my kiddos' online classes. So, we made an impromptu trip to the Kansas City Zoo to visit our old and new, furry friends in Africa. A technician met my hubby at our house to get us back online late morning; but as it turns out, the problem was on their end, and we weren't even up and running again until dinner time. I'm so glad we didn't hang around and wait. Plus, last Wednesday was the end of our first nine weeks, so it really couldn't have happened at a better time academically.
back here into 37 pints of apple butter. The rest have been or will be turned into apple crisp/pie filling. It's a family affair, and I had a lot of help, at least for the first hour (Tee hee!), with washing, peeling, measuring, and of course, eating. The cooking and canning is pretty much my job. If you would like to see a little photo parade of the entire process, check this post out; although, my new, smooth-top stove sure made cleanup a lot easier.
Colour Me...!'s new, weekly palette. Until then, I'll be rooting for our Royals. Thanks so much for checking in on us, and have a truly terrific Tuesday!
