How are you, my friends? Was your weekend lovely? I hope so. I can’t believe we’ve been officially finished with school for almost two weeks; life hasn’t slowed down one little bit for us here. I am usually discombobulated by summer and its general lack of routine, and often it seems that just the time I find my “groove” it’s time to start back with our regular school time routine. This week the girls are attending a VBS at a nearby church for three hours each morning, so I hope to make that time productive. The lack of productivity is what gets me the most–it’s like I never am quite sure how to accomplish all that I’ve neglected (i.e. cleaning out and organizing the pantry, thoroughly cleaning our bedroom, etc.) during the school year. You’d think I’d have figured this out by now; I mean, I’ve been at this full-time mothering thing for eight years now and have been official homeschoolers for three, but alas–I haven’t. Do you have a regular routine for the summer? Please, do share.
Still, though, things are being accomplished here, even if it isn’t happening as quickly as I’d like. Steady Eddie took off work at the end of last week and did a lot of work in our school room. Specifically, he has all but finished the bookshelves (they lacked some shelves right in the middle) and cleaned out a storage closet which housed a lot of our school stuff. Now the school stuff is
all mostly tucked inside drawers or behind cabinet doors. We’re waiting on some hardware for the drawers (I ordered the 3.5″ here) and some finishing touches, and I’ll be sure to share pictures.
On Saturday we took a little trip that I want to share with you here. We attended Dairy Day at Burritt on the Mountain, an outdoor living history museum and historical site in Huntsville, Alabama. We then came home to enjoy pizza, cake, and ice cream with our family. It was a lovely way to spend certain Dear Little Man’s second birthday.
I’ve tried to share more pictures here, but for some reason my blog isn’t cooperating, and I’m out of blogging time. I must be up and about the business of setting up Lulu’s sewing machine so
I can teach her how to sew we can learn how to sew together. I’ll try to post more pictures from Burritt on the Mountain later.
Have a marvelous Monday, friends!
