Well, how did four days go by without a new post? I'll tell you how; this is our crazy birthday month, Tim had a day off and we finished school this week and had our evaluations yesterday. Whew!
Since Tuesday's post I have run errands with Tim to Tractor Supply (he's building a chicken waterer) on his day off, gone with him and my parents to look at modular houses that could possibly be added on as an addition for them here at our house, shopped for a new gas range, made a birthday dinner and cake for my Mom, had our evaluations for our homeschool year yesterday and then did my big shopping trip for groceries.
I'm tired, but happy. The kids are doing great with their learning, all above grade level in reading, Sarah is above grade level with writing as well, and Kyle is above grade level with his math. Mostly I'm pleased because they a lovely people, who care about others, and are fun to be with.
Tim is working a lot of hours this month, as they do yearly maintenance on presses and other units in the building. Lots of hours. I like to keep busy during these days and now that we are on our summer break from school, I can focus on doing projects around the house.
Today I am going to paint my cabinet that Kyle bought me for Mother's Day, and I am eyeing all my other wooden furniture as well! I told Tim that I am wanting to paint our kitchen cabinets, and he was fine with it, so I may get that project done this summer, too.
I am leaning toward the red cabinets on the bottom and white up top with on set of upper cabinets open. It's fun to do new things, isn't it?
I also have not painted my bedroom yet, but hope to get to that this next week. Yay!
The maple tree helicopters are flying here today, and the sun is shining brightly. It's going to be a great day.
What are you up to?
