Lots of finishes

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! It's another quiet one here in my little corner of the Fort but I think that is to be expected right now with my neighborhood continuing to stay home. I will say that things feel different however. The energy about feels like life is going to start picking back up again. Don't quite know how I feel about it because I don't want things to get moving too quickly and jeopardize August. What did the girls and I do this last week? If things had gone as planned Serra and Preston would have represented Colorado in the National Science Olympiad Tournament this weekend. Instead schoolwork officially ended for the girls on Friday and this next...

Focused randomness

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! Also Happy Mother's Day to those that celebrate. Looks like spring has finally arrived in my little corner of the Fort. Have to admit that I've been enjoying the clear days and the cool nights. Schoolwork is winding down for the girls. With the current state of things this is going to be the last true week for Serra and Amanda has this week and AP Exams next week. Thankfully one Fossil Ridge tradition, all be it in a modified format will get to happen. What did we do this past week? It was full of writing. Serra's English class wrote stories to share with each other this week and we had lots of discussion...

Nothing like spring in Colorado

Good Morning and Happy Sunday, Easter, Ostara and/or Spring! Whichever you happen to be celebrating if any of them today. Colorado is wearing her typical Spring finery for this time of year, new tree buds with a hint of snow. Yes it's April and it's snowing in my little corner of the Fort. I don't think we are supposed to get that much but I've already started a pot of soup for dinner tonight.  How are we in our Quarantineland? This week was better than last. Amanda and I took advantage of some sales happening to get her ready for this fall and Serra scored with getting a big box to play in. We truly believe she was a cat...

A few bumps, meditation and gratitude

Good Morning! Or afternoon I guess I should say. The sun is happily shining in my little corner of the Fort, the door is open for some fresh air and we have decided to visit the Marvel Cinematic Universe today since there are no sports right now. Why am I so slow this morning? I wasn't really sure what to say or how to say it. This last week was a bumpy one. Some of my own emotions came into play and in-person school was officially canceled this week. It was pretty hard to take considering it is only the beginning of April. Up until that news I was pretty proud of myself for holding things together!  I had hoped...

The return of routine and breathing

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! The sunshine is giving me the illusion that's it's warm outside but I'm not going out to check! Routine returned this week with the girls heading back to school for the spring semester. I think I got the short end of it being the one to wake them up. Going from sleeping in to 10 am most every morning over break to 6-630 am is a big difference. Thankfully no one snarled too much and things have started good. The college application process has started for Amanda and Serra made first team for Science Olympiad. As for crafty things! The colorwork mitts are finished and currently drying. I will get them into The Loopy Ewe...
