This past weekend was the first weekend in what feels like forever in which we had the whole weekend free from any scheduled plans! These sort of weekends are starting to feel like a rarity and I am beginning to savor them when they do happen. We tend to try and balance our time between "to-do" and "have fun" and so our weekend was sprinkled with trips to the Farmer's Market and Greenway as well as yard work and house repairs. I even managed to get in a little bit of sewing! After losing an entire week to tend to sick children, it felt so good to be moving forward in life.
And now we are on our last week of school! Blake and I are wrapping up the year with a Botany block. Not his most favorite, but I can see moments when he is finding it interesting. I, on the other hand, am having a lot of fun. I will try and post some pictures of his work (along with some of the activities we have done). The little boys finished up last week (somehow between all the puking, I was able to administer the state mandated end of year tests) and have already slipped into our summer rhythm. With the roses and gardenias blooming and the heat and humidity back, it certainly feels like it's time.
And now I am off to finish up some last minute birthday crafting for our special girl!
