What’s Happening?

Family Schooling!!!

Take a peek at what happened here in the last few hours. I call this Family Schooling.


Kelsey determined that she would make dinner for all of us tonight. She kept the menu a secret so that it would be a surprise. She wanted to celebrate a couple of different things, which I will expound on later in this post. She enlisted the help of the twins. They made noodles for our dinner. They followed the directions in the cookbook and made the dough for the noodles. Then Kelsey rolled out the dough and cut up the noodles.


Kelsey cut potatoes for mashed potatoes.


Abby worked on her My Little Pony worksheets that I printed from 1+1+1=1.



Anna did her Math on Khan Academy online.

Morgan eating overnight oats that Kelsey prepared for him the night before. She makes these for several of us. She customizes them to our tastes. Morgan’s was Chocolate Peanut Crunch. He says it was heavenly.


Mine was Chocolate, Banana, Peanut Butter with sliced Walnut. It was delicious, and the texture was divine.

I read a story by George MacDonald to the older kids. It was called “Little Daylight”. It was a very interesting, intriguing fairy tale that kept our attention and made us all ponder the value of compassion and the rewards of good character and integrity. It also reinforced the concept that good always triumphs over evil.

The story came from this book by George MacDonald:

And now it’s dinner time! Here is Kelsey’s surprise dinner.


By faith, we are celebrating Gary’s new job. We are seeing some movement with more recruiters calling about better positions than he has been considered for before. And he has been getting some divine inspiration and guidance to help him in his job search.


My only contribution to the dinner – Hot Fudge Pudding Cake – one of my specialties!


The other thing that we are celebrating – the thing that is near and dear to Kelsey’s heart – is that she was able to afford an exclusive 3DS XL that will only be produced once. And she got it during a time of “financial famine” for us.

We are so grateful for Kelsey and the way that she blesses our family. We are rejoicing with her over the acquisition of this special item that was the desire of her heart.

I hope you enjoyed this little peek into today’s adventure in Family Schooling.

    1. Yes, she really likes to cook! She says it is just one of the things she likes. I think she doesn’t want to get pigeon-holed into one thing. She loves to draw, too. She is very creative, and it’s so neat to see her creativity applied to cooking and baking. It’s delicious, too! She is also making sure everything is nutritious. She is learning so much.
