I guess now you know where my color inspiration has been coming from lately. And this:
We are about 1/3 into our summer and unlike some of you organized Moms out there, I have not scheduled our days. I needed the breather from all of the drop-off and pick-up times that I stick to during the school year, but the kids absolutely need some structure, for sure. Yesteray, I think I've seen Helen (7) be as happy as she has been all summer, entirely absorbed in a new library paperback chapter book. Note to self: more library and more "home schooling" it's what they are asking for!
We were so happy to see our good friends, Pat and Joan, as well as Jeff, Jim and Michelle, last weekend and take in a baseball game: Nationals vs. Indians. These are just the kind of people who after having been around them, leave me feeling more motivated and full of ideas. I enjoy every minute with them!
It's funny how the kids still freak out about team mascots. They do not want these oversized, animated stuffed animals coming near them. Joan practically climbed me like a tree when she saw screech, but they thought the "presidents" (costumed characters wtih huge heads) were funny. So did I. I don't know why there's just something about it.
Another weekend is already upon us. Make yours everything you want it to be.
