Hello everyone! Thank you so much for your comments on my herb garden!! I'm always happy to hear from fairy fans and especially fans of The Secret Garden! I've been reading it out loud to the girls and Benjamin. Mary has found the garden and met Colin...my favorite part of the book!
This afternoon we ran some errands and when leaving Costco, noticed a field filled with these pretty yellow flowers (AKA weeds!) I'm not sure what they are, but they remind me of Buttercups.
We've been trying to work more in our Nature Journals. Today we drew some spring pictures with our watercolor pencils.
Here is Emily's picture...what a pretty blue sky!
Grace wrote a little spring poem...
The Fox Hunter
Bunny hop away,
Chicks hide in your nest,
Fishies swim far away,
For the fox hunter is coming.
Benjamin drew a picture will lots of different spring time critters.
Phillip is making me post this picture....it's the robin from The Secret Garden. The poor thing!
Later in the evening, we had chicken salad sandwiches, boiled eggs, chips and lemonade for dinner.
For dessert I made a Lemon Pudding Cake. I used to make it all the time when we first were married. The top half is light and spongy and the bottom half is a creamy lemon pudding
Here is the recipe...
Lemon Pudding Cake
2 eggs, separated
1/4 cup lemon juice
2/3 cup milk
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour
1/4 tsp. salt
Heat oven to 350.F Beat eggs whites until stiff peaks form. In another bowl, beat yolks slightly. Beat in lemon juice and milk. Beat in remaining ingredients until smooth. Fold in beaten egg whites. Pour into ungreased 1 quart casserole dish. Place casserole dish in larger pan (I used a 9x13 pan). Pour 1 inch of hot water in pan. Bake 45 minutes or until golden brown. Remove casserole from pan. Eat warm.
We had Peeps too. It isn't spring without Peeps! :0)
Would this be a good time to mention that we haven't had shower or laundry lessons this week? We have had some lessons on selfishness and lying though! Oh and burping really loud at the dinner table. All I can say is "thank goodness the weekend is here!"
