The Homestead Journal ~ Week 58~ What Day Is IT?

Homestead Happenings
I spent the week suffering from a terrible tooth infection. My body has been doing good fighting it off, but there are some pretty intense moments. We did some yard work this week,  going through the wood and other items scattered around the property. We hope to plot out our garden next week. 

The memory card for my camera broke, so I have been without a camera this week. I took a few snapshots of the week with my camera. I wasn't up to much else anyhow. This past week is a blur. 
What We Are Learning About 
We have had a very laid back week due to me not feeling well. Jacob and Quinten have been working on a few merit badges, and Abigail has read about 3 Nancy Drew books. Isaac is studying anatomy. I planned on expanding on this more, as people have been asking about our unschooling, but we are still trying to settle into a routine. 

Our Adventures
Jacob and Quinten attended an Aaronic Priesthood Meeting .. They discussed organization of quorums, how to use the Duty to God manual. They also talked about priesthood responsibilities and applying them to their lives. 

On Our Bookshelf
We borrow a lot of books from the library. The children pick out their own books, and I grab some that I feel they need for school.
