"A home is...

...a house with a heart inside."
~ Author Unknown

Just a few pictures from around my well as some of the children's schooling. They were all reading at the same time (Jaxson to me and Madelyn and Xavier silently) and I just had to stop and take a quick photo of each. Madelyn is reading "The Spy" by James Cooper. Xavier is reading "Alice in Wonderland" and Jaxson is reading "Swiss Family Robinson". It was quite lovely seeing them all peacefully reading (as not all moments in this crazy household are peaceful!).

Out the windows you will notice we have a lot of that fluffy, cold white stuff. The snow held off until January but is now hitting us with a vengence! We have bitterly cold temperatures...making our wood stove work extra hard! I *am* thankful though to see the sun shining! It's a beautiful thing, that sunshine!

The boys are practicing their instruments right now...and then our school day is finished (before lunch even! Woohoo! Some days, we aren't finished until the afternoon!). My stomach is letting me know it's lunch time (who needs clocks? My stomach always lets me know what time it is!). So, I am going to get some lunch prepared and continue with my day. Housework needs finished and knitting needs done. :) I hope your Thursday is enjoyed!
