Week 13 #ProjectLife

Week 13a


Week 13b

Caleb: Wanna come outside and play, Phoebe?

Phoebe: no it’s cold outside, I don’t like to play outside when it’s cold.

Caleb: I like to play outside

Phoebe: well you’re tough

Caleb: You can pretend your tough and come outside to play.

Still some cooler weather intermingled with the warm.  The cool seems even more offensive now that we are being tempted with the spring warmth.


I must admit, I’m slacking in the photo department, opting for the convenience of my camera phone rather than my big girl camera.  I figure the shot will be gone by the time I grab my camera, and I have my phone handy.  Like my justification?  It’s working for David, so far….


Week 10 #ProjectLife

A new week with lots of new things.  Spring like weather is encouraging us that winter will soon be over.

We completed our curriculum and it’s always nice to have a fresh start with new units just about the time when the mid year doldrums sets in.  Caleb has officially added to our mix, the themes of this unit were just too perfectly suited for his current interests.  We’re taking advantage and diving in head first to get him used to the routine for next year when he will be official.


Week 10a

Week 10b

We celebrated my birthday early with a family membership the local botanical gardens near our home.  It was a lovely day to pack a picnic lunch and explore the gardens before peak spring blooms attract large crowds.  We plan to make it a frequent attraction and document the changes throughout the seasons.

The Hope of Spring

I’m slightly, well really crazy excited around here.   Last week, as a snub to winter, we started our seeds in the greenhouse for a late winter/early spring garden.  I’ve been watering/stalking them daily, and much to my joy I discovered these little gems this morning.  Excuse the crappy phone pics, I was caught up in my excitement.

I know it’s not a true leaf, or even a seed leaf/cotyledon, but it’s definately emerging, and that means the countdown can officially begin.

The faith required to patiently anticipate the harvest when all you’ve done is put little seeds into the ground and given the water, is amazing.

So anywhere from 50-60 days we can anticipate beginning the harvest of kale, broccoli, cabbage, ect.
