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.
body’s asking me for help, you see, and that’s the key point. My kids have no problem demanding assistance as needed, so the lack of communication actually means that they’re wanting space to explore – that’s how I take it.
And the “official” school year is over for us, and with it the end of my weekly tracking posts. I do this each week throughout the year, just for myself. These posts will see you next fall! Adios!
One week down…. Off we go, marching into the weekend at half pace, after a full week of go-go-go. I, for one, am tired. Full week, good week. May there be another.
Deep breath in… We’re hitting the end of our “school year,” or at least the part where I report it officially. We’re clearly ready to be outside nonstop, away from books and the table. Deep breath out… Two more weeks.
Please, please, please bring me more spring weather! I’m in love with the green and verdant things, and all of the birdsong.
Overwhelmed with work this week, so there’s no drawing section. Oh well. Pared down to the basics between grandparents and the need for down time, plus inclement weather. Are we done yet?!?
Okay, we’re rolling on the outdoor time this week! We’ll make it to 20 soon, and I’m super excited. Grandparents visit began Wednesday, so we shoved responsibilities into the first three days of the week, and then took two days off. Yet the documentarian in me still writes!
Road trip to Colby, KS, over last weekend. It started our week slowly, which was nice. We visited my parents’ and finally saw the new house they’ve been living in since last fall! Gained some momentum with nice weather and lots of time outside by the end of the week. We’re done with our first 100 hours outside – slow and steady!
