(And there was much rejoicing.)
Amid the sea of boxes, unpacking, and organizing, life does continue. Just not super smoothly.
We walk around our property daily.
We turn things into art:
(LK received a tool box with some basic tools for his birthday, and he collected wood scraps from the house remodeling to build The Dearliest and I helicopters.)
(Arc worried the old wallpaper something awful, and The Dearliest turned it into “War Feathers Wallflower”.)
(A small pile of gravel at N&G’s became a castle…it kept kiddos busy for a quite a while as we moved stuff out of the basement!)
I dream about the garden I will have next year. I’ve counted over a dozen rose bushes bordering a lawn area. A green house and a couple [currently overgrown] mature grape vines line another border, and my head is already spinning with ideas of garden parties.
Schooling has taken a backseat these last couple weeks, but we did take some time to learn about the solar system. LK’s Granda observed our lesson and informed me about this video, which is pretty cool:
LK got excited by it, so I told him he could build his own model (just not to scale).
He was mighty proud of his asteroid belt.
And then, of course, there’s always time for kids to just be kids!
