… we’ve had swim meets, and swim practices and some beautiful swim moments.
… we’ve also had baseball games and some rained out games, that makes space for some other kind of playing. Still with friends, still fun.
… have dried some clothes outside.
… we’ve been studying Africa and wondering how long we can stretch this unit for, because what I thought we’d take a month or so, it’s been more like 3 months! And we are still enjoying it and having fun.
… the garden is being readied and planted, slowly, but it’s in everyone’s minds. We’ll get there eventually.
… we’ve been outside a whole lot more.
… we’ve been mowing the yard, a lot. Between the sun, the heat of a 90-degree day we had last week, and the rain, it’s growing like crazy!
… new friendships are grown and getting stronger. Sometimes it’s hard, sometimes it’s easier and wonderful and funny. Teens and pre-teens, and all the previous years, are all an amazing time for learning and growing up. All of us, but mostly me as a parent.
… windows are often open all day through the evening.
… I’ve been listening to new to me music.
… I found this video and made me think.
… it’s been so nice that I find the kids doing their work outside many times…. love that of homeschooling!
Summer is coming, I know it, and the calendar says so. We are looking forward to it.
