Typical Monday

Our Mondays are busy and full.  My Mondays usually start around 5:30.  A.M.  You know as in very, very early morning.  Today was no different.  Up at 5:30, and my Monday preschoolers arrived.  Their routine is to come in their pj's and nap another hour or so before we eat and get dressed.  Then, we head out the door to go to our homeschool coop.

Since our coop is a 40 minute drive from home, into the city, we take advantage of our trip back.  Our routine is to stop at K-Mart, Aldi and hit at least 1 of the 5 consignment or thrift stores on our path home.  Then, we go to the park (the preschoolers love this part),  get a snack and go home.  If it is to hot, cold or rains, we substitute the library for the park.

Today we added in a stop to a nursery so I could pick up some more red onion sets.

The onion bed now has yellow, white and red onions.  Also in the ground are carrots, lettuce, peas, chives, ginger, strawberries, blueberries, and potatoes.  In the greenhouse growing to transplant size are leeks, tomatoes, peppers, brussel sprouts, garlic and more.  I'd love to put the greenhouse items out early, but we could still have another freeze or frost.

Tomorrow also has a long list, but on that list is to welcome home some baby chickens.  Hopefully I can get some pictures posted tomorrow.

I really like this idea of a homeschooling co op. I've not heard of that around here, though my niece does go to her church school one or two days per week in addition to being home schooled. Is this like a christian "charter school?" (That's something else I'd never heard of until a few years ago) Anyway, it sounds like a really fun and busy day!
