Tid Bits

This week has been a tough one.

I stepped out of my comfort zone, fumbled while being "out there", and a door closed. It was not easy. BUT...all is not lost. I learned a bit about myself through the process. Now, it is up to me to take that knowledge and do something productive with it. Some areas I see a need for growth and others just need a little pruning.

School...this week did not see much as far as quantity or quality, really. I was more focused on me and that is okay. Magnus and I have continued prepping for the standardized test he has to take in a few weeks. We've listened to the SOTW on cd, read a few books, and watched a couple videos. We did go on a field trip to The Sacramento Zoo with some friends on Tuesday. That was a lot of fun. I was able to get my mind off things. The boys completed a zoo "I Spy" booklet that can be found at www.homeschoolshare.com.

We've got some fun things planned the next upcoming weeks. Next week we are going to go camping at the ocean. I FINALLY get to see it again! It has been way too long. The following week our friends from MA are driving their RV across country and since they have no choice but to turn around in CA, we are heading to the ocean with them for a few nights of camping! Then the following week, Collin's parents are flying down for a visit! Guess where we all are going to spend Mother's Day...at the ocean!!! YIPPEE!!!!!

That about covers things. Be sure to check back next week for pics from our camping trip and the ocean!!

Pruning is never fun, but always worthwhile! Have fun at the ocean, I'm a bit jealous about that. Thanks for sharing your week!

Hi Brittney,

Just stopped by to see what you were up to...looks like you are beachside. It sounds like you had a rough spot but you know what? I have faith that it will all be for the best.

Email me anytime if you want to talk or maybe we could get together.

Have fun!
