~ Capturing the context of contentment in everyday life ~
It's hard to believe that it's technically still winter. The weather has been truly spectacular these last few days, so we've been hanging out in the back yard quite a bit. Some of us weed, some of us climb trees, some of us try to put rocks, sticks, grass, and other assorted debris in our mouths, and some of us try to stop this oral exploration. Good times.
A few days ago, my kids actually played together for an extended period of time. I had an entire uninterrupted CONVERSATION ON THE PHONE! which made me happy, but obviously, I'm also really happy about the relationship between those two. They love each other so much; it brings me lots of joy.
Corbin is NOT a fan of how grass feels on his legs.
I've been thinking a lot about Noah and schooling. He's turning five this summer, so he could go to Kindergarten in September. But there are what feels like millions of options. We're leaning towards homeschooling for a variety of reasons, but there are so many different ways to homeschool! I'm reading about public school independent study programs, private school homeschooling programs, homeschool co-ops, charter schools... it's all a bit overwhelming. Part of me wants to build my own curriculum from the ground up and do it all on my own. The (more realistic) part of me knows that some sort of accountability beyond what's required by the state would be helpful. It's a good thing I have six months to figure it all out!
Pretty, happy, funny, real is the brainchild of these ladies here, who are encouraging their reader to find contentment in the everyday perfection and imperfection of life.
