Holy cow, what a week!! I just didn’t feel like getting back into any groove let alone driving my young herd into a groove again!! So our homeschooling was a bit rocky, but our Wednesday was fantastic with a field trip to Maryland Science Center. You can read more about at C2C.
While in Iowa last week, one of my little quirks came out in force. I like birds, I enjoy watching them trot around and fly. In fact my fascination with birds caused my very first car accident. Anyway, out the back door of my BIL’s house are woods and flitting about those woods for our entire visit was a bright male cardinal and a bright male blue jay. If I was sitting at the kitchen table looking out the deck door, I was just no good for conversation. I caught myself slipping out of conversation or interrupting to say “oh look, birds!”
Last night I had a total ‘mommy scare’. My 18month boy is a climber and I knew it was just a matter of time before he would fall. I was just hoping he would fall that first time over carpet. He was trying to climb into his play yard thing in the basement when his footie jammies slipped and he tumbled a foot onto the cement floor of the basement. The other kids didn’t think anything of it till they investigated the drop of red paint on the floor near where Noah fell. Then the screaming started.
Our flash back this Friday is from the crash test dummies!! One of the many cruising songs from my teen years 😉
