I love this season, when there is so much to forage in the fields and woodlands! Any idea what these lovely little blossoms are? And what I am planning to create with them?

This is plantain. It is a common weed that grows around yards and gardens. You will commonly see both the broadleaf and narrow leaf varieties. This plant has many benefits for your skin including soothing pain, slowing bleeding, and antiseptic properties. If you are stung by a bee or wasp chew or crush a leaf and apply it to ease the pain. Did you know that I have 2 salves available that contain this herb? Gardener's Hand Salve and Adventurer's Healing Salve. These are perfect for keeping nearby when hiking or working outdoors!

We had a wonderful weekend camping up at Pierre Lake with my sister and her family! Fishing, kayaking, exploring, campfire cooking, relaxing, fellowship, a few thunder showers- lots of good memories were made.

My newest journaling endeavor is a record of all the beautiful, local places we have adventures at this summer. Our first camping trip of the summer is successfully in the books! We found a lovely campground up by Boundary Dam after all the other campgrounds we checked were full. It was fun to explore a new corner of our region! The past few years we have made a special effort to appreciate the beautiful area we are blessed to live in.

Time. What a sweet gift it is. I can often fill my days too full, not leaving enough room to slow down and really savor the moments. Today the kids discovered that the rhubarb was ready to pick and they wanted to make pies. My inclination was to say no, I'm too busy. But I decided to say yes, and leave other chores for now. What a sweet afternoon we had

We had a good day. The kids and I did quite a bit of work on the garden. Everybody worked hard digging and raking. We even got some peas, beets and carrots planted! Also, lately I have been caught by surprise by just how grown up my oldest boy is becoming- half boy, half man.

In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre.
2 And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.
3 His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow:
4 And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men.
5 And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.
6 He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.
7 And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you.
8 And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and did run to bring his disciples word.
Matthew 28:1-8

I haven't done much sewing in a long time, but I still have a bin of fabric in the garage. So when the idea of Easter dresses for the girls was brought up I was able to find everything I needed in the bin. The only thing I didn't have was a pattern, which found on etsy and printed it right at home. At times like this I am glad I am not a complete minimalist!

The prospect of celebrating Easter or Resurrection Sunday as just our family without our usual activities has had me feeling a little down. So in an effort to make the day still special I am creating a list of things for us to do at home. New post on the blog!

Our governor extended our stay at home order here until May 4th. It is hard to imagine what the outcome of all this is going to be but it is easy to focus on the worst possibilities and let the darkness creep in. And there is really nothing I can do except trust God... and paint one more picture, light another candle, read aloud another chapter, cook the next meal, plant a few seeds and do the next right thing.

So... after watching the livestream from our church, we had a family movie marathon! We watched 5 movies in all! We have never done anything like this before as we are generally a pretty low screen family. It was so fun showing the kids a bunch of old Disney classics. Everyone had a great time and I think it made some pretty fun memories!

Learning land forms with kinetic sand today for geography. This is the first time we have done this and it is a success!
"The first ideas of geography, the lessons on place, which should make the child observant of local geography, of the features of his own neighborhood, its heights and hollows, and level lands, its streams and ponds, should be, as we have seen out of doors, and should prepare him for a certain amount of generalisation- that is, he should be able to discover definitions of river, island, lake and so on, and should make these for himself in a tray of sand..."

We love the lip balms/chapsticks, especially, well all of them. Lemon, Lemongrass, to name a few. 😊
I am trying to reach you to order more salve but your link keeps saying error. I have also sent you an email. Please contact me if possible. TIA
