My moments…


In my life this week…

A lovely day date with my husband, to celebrate our 17th anniversary. We had so much fun doing the simplest of things like talking, dreaming, boutique browsing, brunch, frozen yogurt, going to the movies, lots of walking, fresh roasted peanuts and sharing a crepe from a local creperie. Just lovely… 


Skyped with Lucas on Sunday which was probably the BEST Mom moment of the week!

I also started a new writing project. I’m not sure, at the time, whether this will be something that is going to be bigger than “just something I need to write, right now” or not. At any rate, it’s a mixed bag of emotions penning it out… 
In our homeschool this week…
We are so close to the end of the school year that our energy is electric. (yep, this is in between the bouts of fits, back talking and whining…) We are already wrapping up a couple of subjects that she’s ahead in (Literature and Language Arts) which frees up more time for the others, and will hopefully lead to being done (for summer) by the third week of May. 
We are studying the weather which means we’ve got to do lots of fun projects. Some of them we’ve done before but it’s fun seeing it all through this stage in Gen’s learning. 


We took a “field” trip to see Soul Surfer. If i set all acting/production criticisms aside I can say I honestly loved it. My little book worm loves the story so I ordered a copy of Bethany’s book for Gen’s Easter Basket. Nothing like the last minute… 
Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…
this weekend we have our sweet little (turning 5 year old) friend’s birthday party! I am hoping to take some great shots because I think it will be divine! We also have a trip to the Theatre to see Hairspray– which we are SUPER excited about! 
My favorite thing this week was…
I have taken to capturing mental snapshots of moments. It’s my new goal to be super aware, or something. Anyway, we buy our milk from a dairy a couple hours outside of here. When the farmer’s market is closed for season we have our produce delivered through a local organic company that couples with this dairy to deliver milk too. When it’s farmer’s market season though- we have to buy this milk from a local shop. Wednesday Gen and I went in to said shop (which is incidentally an Antique Mall) to buy some milk so we could make fresh ice cream. There I stood, at their old fashioned counter, paying for my glass bottle of milk while Genny was choosing which sort of old fashioned candy stick she wanted. I felt like we’d stepped right through a portal. It was awesome. Then the woman handed me my bank card and latte (see how i failed to mention they also deal in espresso??? ;) ) and my little antique moment was shattered… 

What’s working/not working for us…
this weather… oh my gosh. Rain (and clouds) seriously- GO AWAY! We need vitamin d and sunshine. (and my head needs a break in this barometric pressure!

  1. Tired of the rain here too. I try to remember how badly the earth needs this water, but we are now on our 4th canceled baseball practice. Only 1 practice has actually happened. It is my son's first year playing and the rain is breaking his heart.

  2. LOVE the antique moment! We're fortunate to have a teenager working in our cousins dairy on the farm next to us.. so our milk is always delivered straight from the dairy. :-)
