May has been cray cray y’all–as usual I feel like I barely escaped with my life. I don’t want to hear about anymore classroom parties, end of year parties or anything similar for a couple of months at least! Pool parties are acceptable though since its been in the 90’s already more times than I can count. It’s going to be a hot summer! Here’s where I share some of the things I’ve been up to this month (besides coordinating schedules which took up most of my free time I’m telling ya!):
Reading: A Fatal Grace by Louise Penny I recently discovered this mysteries and while they are murder mysteries they are very well written. Some of the best I remember reading since I read Agatha Christie all those years ago.
Planning: What to do when school is out! I haven’t planned every week out like I usually do, but I have some rough schedules planned. Both the princess and I do better when there is a plan. I’m excited to say that she has already jumped in with reading–she’s read 3 books since school let out and passed comprehension quizzes on them, so that part is going well. We also have movies, Vacation Bible School, getting away for a weekend, more reading, some studies on things the Princess would like to know more about, and some camp days! She wanted to dive into maps, cooking, and magic so we’ll be doing in-depth studies about all of those to complement her focus on reading this summer. Maybe some cursive and journaling too.
Watching: Poldark, second season Guys–I don’t watch much TV, but seriously this series made me want to binge watch during a particularly busy month. Do I need to say more?
Cooking: YELLOW SQUASH. My husband planted a garden again (even though he said he wasn’t going to bother! ha!) and his yellow squash REALLY took off. So, I made lots of it and he made lots of it and we gave some away…and its still growing!
Eating: Yellow squash (because of course) and ice cream because its been so hot. Sometimes that is the best thing to eat in the evening. Don’t worry–I’m not going overboard on the sugar–its more of a smoothie bowl most of the time unless I need to share with the Princess who won’t eat something without sugar.
Drinking: infused water! Did I mention it was hot? Infused water has been amazing and with my new Lemongrass Spa bottle it has made drinking it even more fun and much more portable than my glass bottle!
Pinning: Sarcastic quotes–it’s just where I go when I’m stressed 🙂
Going: Crazy with the May activities! I think I might have mentioned that before! Who has time to travel when that crazy stuff is going on!
Loving: my decluttered house–I’ve decluttered so much and so often that usually all I have to do is put something out in the garage when its lost its usefulness. It’s a good feeling.
Listening: Greenglass House–I thought it might be something the Princess might be interested in, but as I get towards the end of it I’m thinking maybe not.
Celebrating: The end of school!
