Zucchini Cookies and Chili

I finally got up the energy to make this reciepe for Zucchini Cookies that I got from my mom. They are SO delicious!
Cody couldn't wait for them to be done!
Well, that got me in the mood to make some chili, and I got to use up alot of the veggies that I have grown over the summer.

Pumpkins and Potatoes

I have been really digging up potatoes the last week or so. This year I planted purple potatoes, which have been really fun to grow and plant. I also planted Yukon gold ones, which turned out yummy!
My pie pumpkins have taken off really well, and I can't wait to pick them and can them! I still have sweet potatoes growing, they will be awhile. My butternut squash is growing good too, I'll have to take some pictures!

Soap making!

I have a good friend who loves to make soap. She was willing to show me how to do it, and make some with her! I have just been so excited by doing this. This first batch that we made was Oatmeal Lavender. We have made a couple more batches since then of chamomile and oatmeal cinnamon. I can't wait until they have cured and we can use them!

First day of school!

I have always homeschooled. I have always wanted to homeschool, my husband however, has not always been on the same page. So our compromise was always that should one of the kids ever decide they wanted to go to school, we would let them try. Well, that has finally happened.
I went through quite a while of begging and pleading, then I realized I was acting like a 2 year old. :)
So I let go.
I have left it with my God who can perfectly handle it. She isn't really mine, she is HIS. So, that being said, I am letting go, and trusting in God.
This may not be a big deal to many people. But, for me, I feel to stay home, and be at home, raising children, and serving my husband. So now I'm just doing that a little differently.
Here is my daughter, sideways, because I can't turn it. On her first day of school.
