rainy days

It's been raining here for about a week, hard rains with loads of wind. Thursday a tree across the street went down.

Friday was one of those days that just felt like a baking and reading day. The big kids seemed to be inspired to bake as well. Mr. M helped Miss J bake up a little batch of muffins from a mix.

Miss E helped Miss C mix up some batter of her own. I was impressed that Miss E was careful to put in little bits of everything she thought was needed to bake up a little loaf for Miss C. Miss C liked adding in some mini chocolate chips. It actually turned out OK, but more like a spongey cookie. Miss C enjoyed it well enough.

I had a great little helper making up bread for lunch. It's been about a month since I've made bread, so everyone was excited to have it for lunch. I need to get back to making it regularly.

While we waited for the bread to bake I read a bit of "The lion, the witch, and the wardrobe" to the kids. I've been reading a C.S. Lewis biography to the kids, which got us wanting to read about Narnia again. It was a great way to spend a gloomy rainy day!
