The house is wonderfully quite this morning as I sit and type. It’s been ages since I’ve had a morning of peace to sit for a while before the craziness of our days start. Hubby is usually the first one up each morning, so the TV is on ALL the time.
I wish I could bottle this peace up and save it for those times I need some calm.
I have been lucky enough to have a few moments of peace this week – Rowan was doing some volunteer work so I took the opportunity so sit and read. (and also do some hand work)
“Pride and Prejudice” from the view of the servants “down below”. The weather was perfect this week – to sit by the river and read for a change.
This week I also…..
– took Jaia school supply shopping. For a homeschooled child – this one certainly DOES love her school supplies – I had told her weeks ago – as an incentive/reward/bribery tool?? that if and when she reaches her “first place” goals, I would take her school supply shopping – WITHOUT WAITING FOR EVERYTHING TO BE ON CLEARANCE!
Usually we wait until schools are back in session before we go …. But —–
Just look at that smile – She kills me.
AND went to see Kiki’s Delivery service on the big screen!
It was awesome –
I cannot wait for schools to be back in. Life quiets down for us somewhat. But it’s also the time I like to do more field trips – there are no huge crowds, no packs of children running around. It’s slightly cooler –
We have a bucket list!
We’re off today on our annual family fun day at the amusement park – yay!
Bright Blessings –
