Week “at home,” yet we’re hardly there with all the outdoor time, the friend time, and the adventures. Hooray!
Last week, we did some camping with friends – and this is one of those things that’s consistently better with friends. I highly recommend it.
For example, if I want to get the kids walking every day, I’d add an element – like searching for new spruce tips.
We’re doing a series of summer sessions, growing a new homeschool community, and it’s been fun to see the kids interact in groups again. Wow, is it mayhem! Just general excitement to see their friends again each week and explore new topics.
A Kansas/Missouri visit in the full of summer makes for tired, sweaty people. We haven’t done this for two years, however, and so we entered into our travels with enthusiasm. After all, it was Grandma Carole’s 75th birthday!
It’s a joy to see freed birds strut across the yard, their feathered bottoms tipping up as they peck around. Even now, three entire flocks later, I haven’t tired of keeping them.
I don’t know if it’s simply reactive, a post-Covid leaving of the space we were forced to inhabit for a year, but we’ve been far busier than expected this particular year.
We were only home for three days this past week. Sigh. Poor planning, really. But there wasn’t anything I’d skip. Happy summer!
It’s summah! Park, swim, eat, play, pet, visit, catch – go go go!
