A fairly typical day in our home begins with breakast, usually dear husband and I are up first and then one at a time each child comes down and either helps themself to some cereal or cooks themself a pancake with the batter I have already made. I bake the daily bread and get each child's homeschool materials together for the day. The older two boys do this for themselves now. I have their weekly plan done for them, hopefully, by Monday morning.
The morning usually passes quickly with helping each child with their assignments, reading aloud to the younger children, household cleaning, extra baking, finishing up some orders and packaging them for shipping, and assessing what needs to be done for the afternoon homestead chores.
Yesterday after lunch, Abraham and I tackled the chicken coop. Not a fun job but very rewarding when the chicken coop has a fresh layer of hay on its wooden floor.
Happy chickens outside~
We keep our chickens in the coop until after lunch as they have been laying their eggs in nests throughout our property and we have yet to find most of them. One nest that we have discovered is on top of the hay bales in the barn and it is a pleasure to send a child out to check.
