Well, now that I am back to blogging each day, I have had the opportunity to look over past photos of moments that I would actually love my family to treasure.
One such day was just this last March, when Curly Cook got a brilliant idea to change our regularly scheduled routine for homeschool that day, and instead hold an impromptu Pioneer Trek.
I honestly didn’t expect it to work out, so I prepared myself for anarchy and woe.
Instead, I was DELIGHTFULLY surprised as I watched my older kiddos, not only help Curly Cook gather all the needed supplies, but also WILLINGLY get dressed AND HAPPILY participate in her impromptu Pioneer Trek. . .
Complete with walking “miles and miles” in our backyard . . .
Eating a homemade meal, out on the prairie . . .
And finally wrapping up the day with taking a 20 minute online knife safety class and then using those newly taught skills to whittle soap.
I must say, I was profoundly proud of my kids working together so that this experience could even happen. It was definitely a Mother’s Pay Day!! Well done, my good and faithful kiddos. Mom sure does love you!!! 💕
