Another Friday come and gone . . . well, almost. Three moments I am grateful for this week (no T1D allowed) as the temperature and humidity crawl back up to August standards. Ugh.
1. We survived the first 2 days of going 'off the grid!' No, we haven't moved to an eco-communal living farm. We just took a flying leap off the public school grid and began homeschooling. It was a surreal experience to wake up Thursday morning and head down to the 'school room' and begin teaching my kiddos the three R's . . . while adding in current events, science, art, music, geography, history and bible study. I am not gonna lie, I was more than a little scared and anxious about how it was all going to play out. Not only was I surprised at the ease of the transition, however, I also grinned and giggled knowing we could work at our own pace and change up the 'rules' when we needed. Today was no different, and I dare say a little smoother, and I am beginning to believe we are actually going to make this adventure happen. Woo-To-The-Hoo!!!
2. One of the best moments of the week was spent swimming at a church-friend's backyard pool with our 'other' family. It also happened to be during the first day back to school for our community. HeHe. Yeah, we had ourselves a good old-fashioned 'not-going-back-to-school' party while most of their friends were sitting at a desk in a classroom listening to lectures. Really, though . . . did you expect anything less from us?!
3. The last grateful moment involves an appointment with my favorite 13yo and my hair stylist. Maddi and I had our locks trimmed and colored, with her opting for a bright red hair extension and me selecting a overall dark chestnut full color with purple undertones. Don't worry, it sounds so much more dramatic than it looks. I guess I could prove it with a photo, but I would much rather let your minds wander and wonder.
Yeah, it's definitely Friday an I am feeling a little spunky and snarky.
"Hey, did you SEE Amy and Maddi's hair? What were they thinking?!"
