Well, its been a while since I wrote but I did want to explain what happened to my bread and why I have not been blogging. From what I remember, my daughter tried to peek at my dough from the step ladder as I rounded the kitchen island to do something. I heard a loud thump to find out that she fell backwards off of the stool and cracked her head on an open cabinet edge. I then found myself hysterical, calling my mother in law, racing said daughter to the pediatrician where her head was stapled shut (no anesthic of any kind that I saw) poor thing. Then later that evening we ended up at the emergency room because the staples popped off. My bread which was supposed to rise to 2x its size was more like 3x its size by the time I got to it. It did however, turn out quite nice. My daughter, who exclaimed, "I never want to use that ladder again!", has now returned to using it again, but with strict mommy rules.
As for not blogging. I have found myself doing the organizing and prepping of the home for our new homeschool schedule. Whew, has it been a whirlwind of painting, building, and learning. I'll try and post some of the school room progress and the before and afters of the now shared kids bedroom later if I can.
Thanks for listening.
