You know the science law….An object in motion stays in motion, and and object at rest stays at rest…(something like that--I paraphrased it). Well, that's what happened to my blogging. I have gotten out of the habit of blogging on a daily or almost daily basis, and it has seemed so hard to begin again! It's not that I don't have thoughts and events that I want to write about. It's just that I have gotten out of the habit of making time to actually sit down (or stand at the kitchen counter) and type.
I plan to do better. I like to blog.
I have read two books this week, City of Ember and The People of Sparks, both by Jeanne DuPrau, and I am currently reading two more books, The Prophet of Yonwood by DuPrau and Suck Your Stomach In and Put Some Color On by Shellie Rushing Tomlinson. That last book is hilarious. I am laughing out loud while reading! The DuPrau books are young adult books, but the series (there is also a 4th book) is so interesting. They are fast reads.
We have two more weeks of school to complete our homeschool year. Yay! Let the summer activities begin. I will be working with the children to compile our summer list. I already have a master calendar of May-August on the refrigerator. So far all I have on it is where Olivia will be all summer. She has several trips planned, and we all needed to know where she would be. I will be listing our VBS, summer camp, preacher training school, etc. on there as well. It will be a busy summer, but very enjoyable and hopefully productive as well.
I am also still reading Little Women, which I listen to a large portion of while driving to pick up Olivia from college. My summer list will include a list of books to read. Any suggestions?
***Tip of the Day***
Before your summer begins, walk through your house with a notebook and pen. In each room jot down everything that needs to be done for cleaning and/or maintenance. That will give you a starting point when you schedule the time to work on it during the summer months.
