Guess what I don’t like. Coming up with titles for every post I write. I just don’t have any clever way of saying, “here’s what we have been doing lately”. So maybe I’ll just quit having titles. =)
Here are some every day shots from around the house:
A couple weekends ago, I was able to get away on my bi-annual retreat with my dear friend, Amy. Time with her is time well-spent and I don’t get much of it, so we really treasure these get aways. We spent the weekend in Glen Eyrie again and were glad we chose to do so because there was another big storm that weekend and traveling into the mountains would not have been much fun. We spent some time hiking and a lot of time sitting by the fire chatting and reading good books. We both went home feeling thankful and refreshed!
The night before I left on my retreat I hosted the tutors from CC for our final tutor training session. The boys went out for dinner with Daddio and were discovered snuggled up when I went to check on them after my friends had left.
Ethan and Mike spent a morning together this past weekend. They had breakfast together and then met our friends’ new baby boy after getting cleats for soccer.
We also soaked up some family time (sadly missing Zach due to a cold) this weekend. Love having these guys in town…even if it is only for a couple more months.
Other recent happenings include (1) Ethan starting his soccer season. We are trying a new league and he’s playing with a bunch of kids who go to the same school and have played together before. We were thrilled to discover another guy who is also homeschooled (AND in CC at a different community) joined the team this season, too. They didn’t even know about their connection until after the practice was done when we mamas shared the news to them. And (2) Micah had a play date with a friend from CC and he was thrilled when she arrived.
As you know, Denver experiences extremes in weather. We had beautiful weather for time at the park playing soccer, tennis, playing at the playground and having a chilly picnic.
And not long after, we had a winter storm! The boys and I spent hours outside building forts. I fed them their lunch and hot chocolate in their forts. They also listened to our read-aloud from their forts. Lots of fun!
Also, we celebrated Pi day. =)
