Besides what I all the other cooking mentioned, I put some pintos to cook in our electric roaster around lunchtime. I found this neat idea on youtube not too long ago. So now I make big batches of beans, use some and freeze the rest. I am guessing I have about 4-5 pounds in there cooking now. After rinsing the beans I put them in and fill the roaster, well above the beans as beans absorb a lot of water. I fill our roaster about 1/3 up with beans. Then I let them cook all day, just like in a slow cooker. Works great for us!
School went pretty well today. It wasn't as intense as Monday and Tuesday this week for the little ones. Still, they touched on the basics and that's good for today. I wanted them to get in a nap since we have church tonight. That way they wouldn't be nodding off during the service. The olders worked on their school pretty much on their own, I think getting five subjects in each. I'll check their progress tomorrow as usual.
So, here it is, a little after 5:00pm. We need to begin loading up at about 6:45 to make it to church in time. I'd better begin baths and getting every dressed! Hopefully they can catch a quick bite to eat before heading out. Then, I'm sure they'll want a snack when we get back. Then it'll be time for some blissful slumber.
Have a wonderful evening in God's richness of grace.
