Down Time

I didn't blog yesterday, partly because nothing much changed. Krista felt terrible with the aches and pains but OK otherwise. I had to work in the afternoon and evening and I didn't realize until I was headed to bed that I didn't blog. Oops!

Krista's been using her down time to make plans for homeschooling next year -- mainly researching curriculum again. She's really excited about Andrew Pudewa's Excellence In Writing for language arts because it ties in with Artios' approach really well. Krista also learned about BrainSpark from a PBS special about the science of learning. BrainSpark is a program designed to cross-train the brain in the four ways that people relate with new information: memory, attention, processing rate, and sequencing. These might be some useful tools to add to our schooling efforts.

Yesterday, the Suttons brought us a tritip dinner with a big salad. Today, the Onishuks brought us an amazing soup that Lori's mother made. Lori called it a potato soup, but it was much more than a normal potato soup. The creamy broth was full of chunks of carrot and bacon, and there were Spaetzle in addition to the potato chunks. It reminded me of those wonderful Swabian dishes we had when we were in Germany. Yum! Thanks for the delicious meals!

[Jesus speaking] "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."
(Matthew 11:28-30)
