|TJ's first day of 'school'|
|MJ's first day of 'school'|
I quickly got to work on what was facing me as the boys didn't seem to mind. As I was working away Jon reminded me that since we are homeschooling I don't need to worry about sticking to the plan, just go with the flow of the day. Besides it is a holiday!
Deep breath and start again...
We had ice cream for breakfast (after our healthy stuff) I had offered pancakes but this was way better. Then TJ gave every fruit and vegetable in the house a bath while I cut up a mountain of tomatoes and got them boiling for the pasta sauce. Next we went to go pick up a dresser for the boys. By the time we got home it was already lunch.

When we arrived home we all worked together to finish the pasta sauce, (froze some and ate some with dinner). MJ fell asleep for a while and TJ helped Daddy with fixing the van. I took some quiet time for myself and was so very thankful for this amazing first day. We had a wonderful family time and the boys are loving Sam.

I am reminded again as to why we are homeschooling because the boys are so young and it is an amazing time to enjoy the magic of childhood. This precious time and the rhythm we have is also working well with our home daycare.
I found some amazing knitting patterns on Ravelry website.
I first did a search for Gnomes and then looked for free ones to find this one that I used for Super Sam. I have also made a few animals from this pattern
And found some really cute pumpkin, acorn and tree knitting patterns for free on Ravelry too.
