Fall Break

     I love Fall Break.  I took the kids to a bookstore to get a book for Jacob and they got several educational items–so strange to me how much they want to learn! We came home and set up two teams (Jake and Leigh versus Mary and Clare) to compete on number of hours put into three goals: musical instrument practice, memorizing the presidents, and learning Italian.  Their competition is underway!
    Meanwhile, I got to review my recipes, put together shopping lists and gluten-free bread flour mixes, and think about my next quilt.  The best part was tuning my cello and playing for the first time in a while.  I am working on “O Sacred Head Surrounded,” my favorite hymn.  Ah, I really needed to rest!
