Doing well

Hi friends,
We are doing well, getting back into the routine of school and chores.
We are having a good week so far. Hannah is fever free today, what a blessing. We are also excited daddy is taking a few days off this week, and we are going on a feild trip at the end of the week. We are excited to be able to go visit a home built in the mid 1800's. There are about 40 acres full of gardens, trees and lots of interesting hidding places. Lonnie's grandmother lived there many years befor she passed in 2001.
She was born in Oct. 1901. The history of the house draws you to it. We are excited to see and learn more history, and Lonnie loves telling the girls stories of being a boy and running around on the farm. There are also many muscadine and scuppernong vines and we are hoping to be able to gather enough fruit to make homemade jams when we get home. Hannah made cornbread today, and she did quite well, for a first try. She is very proud of herself, and is asking to make something else again soon. Sarah is waiting to make homemade banana pudding, like grandma used to make. We will attempt that tomorrow night. I love that the girls love to cook. It gives mommy two nights off a week, and then on Sat. daddy cooks. I enjoy my time off. The girls are learning good skills as well. I think with the arrangement we all win. ;O) Well that is all for now. Hope that you each have a blessed week.
Much love and Prayer's,
Lori and crew
