Willing Hands

It's safe to say we are homemade bread fanatics.  We were getting tired of making dough everyday though.  Thankfully someone posted a recipe for artisan bread that doesn't need kneading and the dough can be refrigerated for days.  We tripled our last batch requiring over 18 cups of flour and everyday we have fresh homemade baked bread. It is delicious.
Legos are "in" right now-- didn't you hear?  They are at our house anyway.
Even Alex and Dennis enjoy building ships.
Our Mom's night out on Saturday was so wonderful.  Four of us got together and the four hours flew by.  As we parted, we agreed that we need to do this way more often.  The encouragement, support and many laughs-- blessed my soul.  Who knew such amazing women lived down in Southern Ca? ;)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sunday afternoon, David the founder of ROJ came for a visit.  The drive was a bit long so he stayed the night in the little boys' room.  Dennis and Alex didn't mind though-- they slept in our room!
Please continue to pray for the future of ROJ!  Willing hands and hearts need to come together to be the body of Christ down in Belogorsk, Crimea, Ukraine.  So many amazing things are just waiting to happen.

  6. Could you post the bread recipe you used? Our bread maker died and I need something that requires a bit less time. We love homemade bread too. :-)

  8. That Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day is a fabulous book! The olive oil dough recipe makes great pizza dough as well. Nothing like fresh bread the quick way!

  11. The bread looks really good but seriously Christine, what are you going to do when the girls go to real high school and you don't have anyone to cook or clean for you during the day???? California needs to watch home schoolers a little closer

  12. Somebody is looking for more of a rise than bread dough could provide. I'm with the others, please post the recipe, it looks yummy! I think it's great that you are teaching your kids, boys AND girls the art of cooking and even cleaning. Every child should have responsibilities. They all look very happy when they are cooking! And they will be prepared when adulthood comes, to face the world :)

  13. Hi! Some people who really homeschool know it is a lot of work and expense. Baking can be part of a highschool homeschool home economic class. My daughters who went to public school made food all the time in home economic class.My children who are homeschooled also make food in their home economics class.Is not home economics learning about how to run a home? In PA we have one of the strictest homeschooling laws in the country. Christine's children go to a charter school so they are monitored.You are doing a great job Christine and if you were not I am sure your charter school would say something to you and the local school district who is paying for your children to attend the charter school. Just my two cents, Pat
