The track out between 3rd and 4th quarter is my absolute FAVORITE!
The weather is beautiful.
The kids are antsy to play outside and run around.
My spring motivation is in high gear.
Did I mention the weather?!
We have had a GREAT week so far.
Minus yesterday, where we spent 2 hours in a dentist office with background music playing, the TV on with the volume up loud and drilling sounds coming from down the hallway and the bright overhead lighting..can we say sensory overload?!
But we made it out alive (and Jude is the only one with cavities...4 to be exact...oh boy) and back to the Colony house just in time for some sweet friends to come for dinner.
You may remember me writing about our experience at Family Camp last year and our wonderful family assistants that shadowed and served us all week long. Well, one of them has been scouting out schools to attend after she graduates college a great school just happens to be 10 minutes down the road from us (Noel, the Lord told me that you are supposed to go to Southeastern;) so we KNEW we had to get together. So she and her mom came for dinner. Josh and I had a great time getting to know Noel's mom and our kids had a great time pulling Noel in 100 different directions and running around outside until they could no longer see. What a fun night.
Josh just completed his first deadline for his doctorate project/paper yesterday. That's a huge relief
I took a power nap, in the sun, in the hammock. It was lovely. And I didn't feel guilty about it ONE BIT.
I think I have figured out all of the curriculum for Rainy's 6th grade year at home and I'm getting really excited.
The Colony garden is done and most of the seeds are planted. I'm still waiting on a few of them to get a little stronger inside before transplanting them, but other than that everything is in its rightful place. I realize that I will never fill up the entire garden area because it is HUGE, but maybe each year it will grow a little bit as I learn to do this whole gardening thing. I'm anxious to see how it goes this time around.
We may not have extravagant plans for this track out, but we are having a great time being together, laying low at home, having sleepovers on the floor, staying up way past our typical school day bed time, filling up individual love tanks and playing lots of Dutch Blitz (what did we ever DO before we got that game?!). And all these things make for a good day in my book!
Happy Thursday everybody. It's time to unleash the kids for another full day in the great outdoors.
