Looking Forward to Spring

Little Dorothy is looking forward to spring. 

Today is the last day of winter!!  Here in Indiana that means 50's by day, and 30's by night.  It also means no more snow and ice.  And, some times we get a day or two of 60's or 70's.  We do get a lot of rain, but that brings flowers and green grass.

Another great thing about spring is the end of tax season in a month.  My husband is hanging in there.  He is such a hard worker.  I admire this ability to continue on day after day.  I am also thankful for his good job. And we know this season will end, making our lives a lot nicer.

This week my homeschoolers and I have been on a spring break.  My public school child is off next week for two weeks.  Grace and Trevor enjoyed three days with their Nana.  I enjoyed a quiet house!  I cleaned our carpets, too.  And I got the garage refrigerator cleaned out.  I am not sure what else I will do.  I'd love to clean the windows, but am not ready to remove the plastic.

So that is what is going on around here.  I hope you are enjoying the start of spring, too!

This and That

It's the Monday after daylight savings time!  Mondays are hard enough.  Tax season is hard. Trying to get over this cold has been hard. Add to an already full calendar,  and you get a bad case of spring break fever. Thankfully we are home scholars and can switch up our schedule to suit our needs. But, we need to hang in there one more week. Then I'm sending my students to grandma's house for a few days! While they are away, I will start spring cleaning.  They can help finish when they get back.  Time to evict the dust bunnies. 

I can't wait for the weather to warm up so that we can get outside and get the yard back in shape!

Life These Days

Grace's latest.
Just when it seems life is hard enough, record cold sets in, snows come, and now sickness.  I have had a bad cold for the last several days.  It could be so much worse. I just need some time to rest.  Coughs are difficult to get rid of, are they not?  I had been having such good fortune with my health.  I cannot remember the last time I even had a sniffle.  My time was up!

On Valentine's day, our oldest had another jazz concert performance.  This one was in a town an hour north. He had a great last moment solo.  Really, how does he stand up and improvise such beautiful music?  I am amazed.  He had a wonderful day with the band.

He always looks confused.
Otherwise life is rolling along.  Spring will be here soon.  This winter's battles will be over.  Life will be green again!

February Sky

The other evening, I just happened to look outside.  Wow, what a sky!

Cooking with Nana

It's always a joy for these two to get to spend some time with their Nana.  We are so blessed!
