Welcome to our Adventures in Home Schooling! We follow the Charlotte Mason philosophy of education fairly closely, with my own ideas and creations fitting in here and there. We love home education for our family and hope that as you join us now and again you will see a real family striving to serve the Lord and love each other along the way!
"Thought breeds thought; children familiar with great thoughts take as naturally to thinking for themselves as the well-nourished body takes to growing; and we must bear in mind that growth, physical, intellectual, moral, spiritual, is the sole end of education." ~ Charlotte Mason

Valentines Cup Cakes
We are all feeling sick with coughs, but we decided that we would at least do our cupcakes today, even if we can't have all the other treats with it! I bought some tin foil cup cake heart molds and we made these up with a yummy mix from the XO Baking Co.: Cupcake Mix (they sell yummy, wholesome Gluten free goodies).
Fresh out of the oven and their foil wraps!
I made some cake decorating icing; two colours, a white and pink. We took out our decorating tools and went to town on the little hearts. I love moments like these! They are so much fun and it's great to spend a special afternoon. We took a break from school to celebrate this afternoon. :)
