With the closing of the royal u-pick strawberry patch, life has been getting back to our version of "normal." The Queen has been working on housework, laundry, bookkeeping, re-stocking the freezers with beef for our 100% Grass-fed Beef sales, and planning.
The housework, laundry, and bookkeeping are on-going adventures. The beef re-stocking was the better part of Wednesday, with a comedy of errors along the way. Ever had "one of those days"?
The "planning" is the fun part. I love to plan. (Follow-through is sometimes a problem.)
Back in April, I received the curriculum that the prince will use for homeschool next year. He will be in second grade and using My Father's World (MFW). MFW is an all-in-one curriculum that combines Charlotte Mason's ideas with classical education. It provides international focus and a Biblical worldview.
I have also been planning a cruise. No, not that kind of cruise. I'd be too afraid of sea-sickness, pirates, falling overboard, shipwrecks, and ending up on Gilligan's Island to do that!
I have been planning how to do my reviews for the The Old Schoolhouse Homeschool Crew. Remember when I wrote the review for the Firefighter and Australia unit studies? Those were my audition articles. Our crew captain contacted me last week with the news that I had been chosen. Actually, she contacted a lot of other people too. Anyway, for the next year, I'll be reviewing educational products and writing about them here. (There will probably be other tasks that I'll find out about soon.) I'll be sure to give my honest opinion so that you can make sound choices about the products. There will be other people writing reviews too, and I'll let you know how to find their thoughts. Won't you join me for the cruise?
Now, don't think I'll be going all serious from now on. I still plan to bring you yummy recipes, interesting photos, and stories about the prince and princess. Here's one about the princess:

The grass is green. It is good to be The Cow Queen.
