Around Here

We finally got a bit of a garden in. We got a couple of tomato and pepper plants from the grandparents, as well as some lettuce and zucchini to plant, so we have a few things in there. I want the garden to be the girls responsibility this year, especially as part of Autumn’s homeschool.

Kesa learned to ride her bike without training wheels. This should have happened sooner and I knew that she could do it in a day, which she easily did. Now it is trying to get her to stay close and not ride a mile ahead. She is such a fast learner in all areas of life.

We have been enjoying early morning walks together, Autumn and I, doing mental math and finishing up our math unit. I love getting outside when it is still cool and the sun is just coming up.

It was so hot the past few weeks, we spent a lot of time outside.

Serafina still loves to play in the dirt. We are hoping to get her an actual sandbox soon to keep her from getting so dirty.

Bun Bun is growing bigger every day.

Musical creativity is flowing. The girls brought out my clarinets to play one evening. I am hoping that one will actually take to it.

Autumn’s friend came over for a sleepover and the girls had a great time! Her friend is also homeschooled. They enjoyed playing piano duets together, putting on a play, and cooking their own dinner, which was a soup they created with the ingredients that we had on hand. I enjoyed allowing them let their imaginations guide their time together.

This past weekend Kesa, Serafina, and I were sick. I am still recovering from a cold/flu and am on antibiotics, something I would never take unless I had to, but after a few days of only natural remedies, I spent two and a half hours in the ER to get in to see a doctor which ended in a prescription, so hopefully I will feel like myself again soon. I forget what health is like right now and I would like to taste my food again.

All in all, life is beautiful around here! It isn’t even technically summer yet, but the weather has been so wonderful!

What have you been up to these days? Have you spent a lot of time outside? Have you planted a garden?
