Homeschool Catch-Up

All my days are running together and I forget to post my weekly updates. But we are still doing school, we took a little break after some melt downs occurred and now we are back into out groove.
I am happy to say that Nikolas is catching on to reading very quickly and has just a few more pages left in his kinder math workbook. I ordered him the first grade book and we'll see if he passes up Joshua.
Joshua surprises himself by reading new words every day. Seriously, it doesn't surprise me! He is so smart, they both are. Makes my job so much easier. Joshua loves drawing and being creative. He drew blue prints for a Lego project and then built it!
I love all the books we have been reading with Sonlight. Right now we are reading The House at Pooh Corner, the boys are enjoying it a lot. I, personally, am really enjoying reading about missionaries and their stories in I Heard Good News Today.

Dia de los Muertos y Halloween and some randomness in October

One of the many paper mache "floats" made for Dia de lor Muertos or Day of the Dead.

Dressed up for trick or treating.

The boys and the famous Angel de Independencia.
They liked this one... not so creepy as some.


A more traditional Dia de los Muertos display and altar.
This one was made with toys and squirt guns.
A dragon parrot?
The angel lit up with pink for breast cancer awareness in October.  It really was beautiful!

Crock Pot Potatoes and Sausage

I found a few recipes for things like this on Pinterest but I decided to jump in head first and try it out myself.

  • 4 large white potatoes (any kind would work)
  • 2 cups of green beans (I prefer fresh)
  • 2 packages of Lil Smokies (you can use any sausage, keilbasa or Polish would be great)
  • 2-3 tablespoons of minced garlic
  • 1 tabelspoon dried parsley
  • about a cup of water, just to keep it steamy in the crock pot and not get dried out
  • salt and pepper to taste
I cut the potatoes into chunks with the peelings on (up to you), chopped the green beans into more bit size pieces and dumped everything in. I always start my crock pot on high just to get it going, maybe 30 minutes then switch it to low. This cooked maybe 6 hours and was perfect. The potatoes just need to be cooked through and I like mine pretty soft, so it may not take as long for you. 
Hubs felt like there was something missing from this (like BBQ sauce, so he put it on it himself) but I loved it! It was easy and hearty. Depending on the sausage you use, watch the salt that you add. I didn't need to add any because the Lil Smokies are pretty salty. I will definitely be making this again!
