june

I'm tired. It's getting late and I ought to be heading up to bed. But it's JUNE... my favorite month of the year and I am hopeful and feeling a bit of energy at this late hour due to excitement, and hope and enjoyment of the quiet moment that I am experiencing right now.

We are winding down our homeschool for the year. This week and then next week, then we are on summer vacation. Oh, how I long for summer vacation.

I recently read that summer vacation is a time to put academics aside and let children become tall and tan! I love that idea. It surely is a reality in our home.

Some last minute thoughts as I am ending my day...

  • So thrilled to have ordered some new clothes for Luca. My favorite silk/wool blend. A shirt and some snappy overalls. I can just picture him stomping around in them!
  • My children want to make iced tea tomorrow and add the fresh spearmint that a friend just gave to us. I am looking forward to this too.
  • Set some 'summertime goals' for us this year. On the list we have riding a horse, beach going, berry picking and some great bits of literature (Robin Hood for the boys!). Oh, and I really intend to finish reading The Wind in the Willows aloud to my children... it's only been two years now that I've been trying!
  • Looking ahead to my birthday celebration next week and the opening day of my favorite farmers market in my area!

Try the Wind in the Willows on audio! It made a world of difference in our enjoyment of the book.

Good goals mama bear!
I visit your blog every month or so and I am impressed with your posts!
