Thinking– We’ve had beautiful weather here-crazy warm days, with all the blossoms and leaves bursting, and then snow today. It’s April, to be expected. On the way to school every day I am always pointing out the beauty of nature and driving my kids crazy. But I do think it’s so important for them to notice-there is nothing like the seasons, and the gift of new life after a long winter.
Playing- We are full on with soccer/softball (that’s a first!) practice and games. In between school and practices and weekend games we’ve been baking and doing art work and going a little stir crazy on rainy (or snowy) days.
Reading– I just finished Kristin Hannah’s The Four Winds and really liked it and read it quickly-I consider her books “light” reading-not content wise just the style, which at times I need when I haven’t read in awhile or find myself distracted. This is all about the Dust Bowl, a single mom with two children trying to survive on her own after traveling to California, only to be met with more hardship and starvation. They all find themselves working towards a cause to enact changes in laws for workers. The Dust Bowl is one of my favorite subjects to read about. Incredible hardship-something I’m sure we can’t even imagine and not very long ago. How quickly we forget!
Happy Reading and Happy Spring!
