Getting Back to Normal

I arrived home Sunday afternoon with the four children who went with me to America, and it is so good to be back!  I don’t know if I’ll get around to posting any pictures of the trip or not; I haven’t even looked at them yet.  Just to let you know we’re all still alive and well, here are a few pictures from this week.  Baby got sick on the way home; as we crossed the equator, he started vomiting.  Two days later he finally got well, just in time for all the rest of us, except Gayle, to come down with it.  Now, I think we’re all well–sure hope so!  We did manage to get a week’s worth of school done this week, and Monday, before the plague hit in force, we did some harvesting.

This evening--nearly bedtime, and the boys are having fun playing games with each other.

An aunt sent these fire truck sets to the little boys.  They love them!  Thank you much--you know who you are.

Monday was our only sunny day since we got home.  The boys got all our pumpkins harvested for the year.  I had them wash them and lay them out in the sun to cure.  Now it's raining--we should have put them under cover!

The boys found this "horse mushroom" yesterday--about 10 inches in diameter!  It's edible, so we had it for supper.

Today for Science, I read about magnets to the littler boys.  There were a few experiments to do, and they had fun playing with the magnets.  One of the bigger boys discovered something fun he could make the magnets do–see this quick video!  Grandma, this is especially for you.  For some reason, the arrow you usually click to watch a youTube video isn’t showing up for me, but if you click on the video it’ll start playing.

    Great pile of pumpkins Emma! The children must be so happy that the family is re-united. We’ve had some field mushrooms too but no really big horse mushrooms this season. Chees, Ros and Ray
