Okay, it is official… we are crazy. You have to understand though – I homeschool. I spend all day long (every day) with the kids and spend my time in front of a computer, moving from one child’s work to the next. I don’t get out as much as I would like and sometimes, yes – even a walk around the block is a luxury I can’t afford. It’s not a complaint, but I have my limits… So yes, we actually finished school and then went for three straight days to the botanic gardens nearby. Three straight days.
I truly need to get outdoors. It is where I find myself most at peace and I can feel relaxed. The troubles of my day, the sorrows of the world around me fade away and all I can see are blue skies stretching toward the horizon, I feel the breeze, I listen to the birds’ songs. Usually, we get out at least on the weekends – but this past semester has been a doozy! I had one kid that needed math help that normally does not need it (Algebra, anyone?) and another that took a computer class that is still getting the edges ironed out. This, on top of full-time teaching the two little ones was a feat, and one I am glad to say we accomplished… but also one I gladly say is behind us.
Anyhoo… enough about me and my sob story. Today we are going to visit a friend over lunch. We have not been out much today, except to run errands and get allergy shots because we are crazy and like to visit the gardens so much 🙂 Hopefully, this evening will be relaxed. I hope you enjoy the beautiful view from the gardens and just know I have more to share. I am hoping to go to other locations in the city for photos as time allows. I want to stretch my view once again…
For anyone who hasn’t heard from me in a while, boy! I’m going to have a lot to catch up with. Know I haven’t forgotten you. I’m just taking this entire week off to treat myself and stay a little further away from the computer. Once next week comes, I will be around and try to get more caught up with things. I’m hoping to spend much of the summer vacation outdoors but it will be a healthy mix of the two, I hope. During school I don’t get much of a choice 😉
