We are down to just two goat girls who should be pregnant and ready to kid this spring, and the chickens, that should be laying this spring! Its a weird feeling to have just a few animals, but it's good. The goat girls have begun to put on their winter coat, so they are looking quite scroungy.
A snake at the end of November...how strange...
I have been thinking lately a lot about lessons and how everything will be different when we move to a different state with new and different laws. I will have to have an actual curriculum or some sort of "something" written down to turn in and grades...oh my...grades. How will I do grades. I've never done grading, for many reasons, but one being I mostly do and go over their work with them so they always get everything correct, I suppose they will just have to be straight A students(whatever that really means). I will have to be better organized for sure, and maybe set up some sort of computer filing system for ease, aaannnd maybe assign an older child to record at the end of the day! I'm sure it will work out just fine with nothing to worry about...you know, I'm sure I will get used to a new system, and it will be good, I think, maybe just what we really need.
Thanksgiving was good, our third year to celebrate with friends that are either staying home or just have no where to go. Holidays are a complicated matter for us, so we decided after talking it over with some good friends that this would be a great option. My kiddos look forward to it every year now, having so many friends to hang out with, and all the families play games, and sing songs. It is really a blessed event!
