Since my kids can work on math with only a little assistance from me, I work along side them in the kitchen. This is my time to get some food prep done; I have about one hour. This morning I cleaned out some pumpkins and baked them. Then I scrubbed some carrots that the boys dug from the garden a couple weeks ago.

|After math and before language, the boys and I ran down the driveway and back to get my blood flowing and their energy out! :) Emily snapped this photo without us knowing.|
Later in the day, while I was making lunch, I grated the carrots along with some apples. I ended up with a whole gallon bag of grated carrots. We will put them on our salads.
|Lunch - Mixed greens with grated carrots and grated apples, homemade French dressing, and homemade sourdough bread with our own crab apple jelly.|
Around 4pm, I started dinner - turkey soup. I was in and out of the kitchen while I sauteed garlic, onions, beans, carrots, peppers, and zucchini (all from my garden) in butter.

Well, I am tired. :) But it is a good tired.:) I am going to go soak in a hot chamomile bath while I listen to my husband sing and my children play their instruments. It's music night at the Housman's house. :)
