Today we continued some housecleaning.  We are working hard to make our home a place we love to be and to invite people inside.

Our oven has been broken for a while,but today we were supposed to get a new oven. Sadly, the eejits at Lowe’s went to the wrong house. Yeesh.

However, we got some flour ground and ready for making sugar cookie batter this evening (so it can chill overnight), and then bread tomorrow. Mmmmm bread!

Homeschooling today included coloring states red and blue (or blue stripey for states that changed from 2004 to 2008). I was amazed at how many of the states the girls remembered! They have truly cared about the election, and loved watching the Tina Fey episodes on SNL and watching The Daily Show. I have wonderful kids!

My daughters are thrilled that there will be children their ages in the White House. I’m just so so happy with the person we have chosen to be our 44th President. January 20th is going to be a wonderful day!

We have a couple church activities this weekend, as well as laundry and a lot of writing. I’m sure that our weekend will be full! Maybe we can take a walk with Ra, too – these pics are from a walk we took a couple weeks ago with Nanny Ogg and her flock.
