PREPARING FOR CHRISTMAS (Vlog: Week of December 10)

The month of December at the Kreke house means a light school load so that we can spend the days on our Christmas traditions. This week we crafted for the Nature Pal Exchange, had mom/child shopping days to buy gifts for siblings, and attended a Happy Birthday Jesus party.

Large Family Life...this week at our house

This week we began learning about Diligence in the Character First Education program. We also have fun mid-week visitors, and take trips to the library and dollar store.

A new adventure in Vlogging...

I have enjoyed making videos for our YouTube channel so we've decided to try something new...small clips of our week put together in one "Weekly Vlog" that will be published on Mondays. That's my plan anyway!

Last week's video can be viewed here:

Celebrating our May birthday boys

Leo and Jeremiah both have birthdays in May...and this year it is right in the middle of chaos. We are getting so close on finishing our "long-term temporary" tiny house (well at least to the point where it is livable), finishing up our remaining school work, packing, etc etc.
A birthday party was not on my list, but Grandpa Mike and Grandma Peggy offered to host one. I'm so thankful! It was a fun day with great company and beautiful weather. Sweet memories :)

Come along to my midwife appointment...and see why I am so thankful to have a midwife that puts up with the circus I bring each visit.

Also, cleaning out kitchen cabinets in preparation to downsize..

8 Krekes + 15 Chicks

I'm finally getting around to update the blog with sweet pictures of the new addition to our chickens! They are growing fast; I do believe they've nearly doubled in size since these photos.
