First Day - March

The First Day of March was a fun one! We got a good dumping of snow, the fun kind. Church was cancelled so we slept in, ate good food, and did lots of playing. Well, some of us did. I am linking up with Nicole at Journey to Josie.

This is how late I slept yesterday morning!! (Snow day!)

It was a snowy wonderland!

Started my morning off right.

Daddy snuggles with Quincy.

I parked in front of the furnace for a while.

And Rick and I had some breakfast and chat time.

Eli started his morning off "right" with a waffle and Wii U.

The furnace was a popular place today.

Right at 4 inches of good snow!

That had to be cleared off the vehicles.

I stayed snug inside doing laundry with more coffee.

Buck prefers the warmth of indoors.

Although he, Quincy, and Crusoe did go out for a bit.

Yadi stayed out with Kyndal the whole time she was out there. He was a maniac.

He didn't want to come in.

Neither did Chloe.

Kyndal adores her babies.

The family working on a snowwoman.

While I, again, stayed inside and had some warm stew for lunch.

Meet Lydia.

Everyone finally got cold enough to come in for cocoa.

And Jalapeno Chicken Enchiladas for dinner.

Rick and I watched The Mummy, a favorite.

My house with no people in it. Rick headed back to Oklahoma,
Kyndal, Collin and their dogs went home,
Eli and Brynne retreated to their bedroom,
and Dawson and Taylar were hanging out upstairs.

So I did some lesson planning and watched the finale
of "How to Get Away with Murder".

Until I went to bed for some blog time.

And ended my day exactly 12 hours after it started.


  1. looks like a wonderful day

  2. I wish my body would let me sleep in that late! So nice! I love a good, calm Sunday.

  3. That sounds like a fantastic day! Glad you got to sleep in and relax!

  4. A great snow day! Snow is THE time for warm drinks, warm food, sleeping in! I'm not sure about the snowman-making, but they did an awesome job! LOL

Cells ~ It's What's for Dinner

Dawson made edible cells on Friday.

He made an animal cell pizza ...

and a plant cell chocolate chip cookie ...

He reviewed what he's learned about cells the past two weeks, and I had dinner made by someone else. Win, win!!

I am linking up at Science Sunday at Adventures in Mommydom.

Ketogenic + Restless Legs = Insomnia ... Um, No!

Okay, I have been eating ketogenic for five days now. I have gotten through the carb detox headaches and have settled into a macro plan of 5% carbs (no grains), 20% protein, 75% fat.

The upside is that I like the idea of limiting my body of all of the glucose which will help my minor health conditions.

But there are definitely downsides!

The first is that I am having a hard time getting in enough fats under the strictures of the diet. Who knew it would be hard to eat fats? The real problem is that the fats I want to eat then include a consumption of protein and/or carbs and then throws off my percentages. Still working on that one.

The bigger issue is that for the past couple of nights I have had trouble sleeping, and I have had restless legs.

Sleeping is one of those things that I do well. I go to bed at the same time every night (for the most part) and get up at the same time each morning. I can fit in a 15-30 minute power nap in the afternoon and have no trouble going to sleep at n…

America: The Story of Us ~ Episode 3: "Westward 1" Lesson Plans

This past summer, when I planned our lessons for this year, I was enthralled with how much information was in Episode 3 ~ Westward. It couldn't be done in just three weeks, as I had intended for each unit. So, I broke Westward up into two separate units: Westward 1 and Westward 2. This week I will provide the lesson plans for Westward 1. We spent three weeks on this part of the unit.

We readThe Captain's Dog by Roland Smith. We read an equal number of pages each day to cover the three-week unit (Suprisingly, Dawson did not enjoy this book as much as I thought he would. With him being such a dog-lover, I thought he would appreciate it more. But it just didn't have enough action for him. You'll find that he's hard to please when it comes to literature. I actually really enjoyed The Captain's Dog and thought it was a great piece of historical fiction.)

We watched the entire Episode 3, did the discussion questions/video quiz for the episode and the vocabulary words…
