Wow, this topic for our Hearts at Home blog hop hits close to home because I just had a baby in the last couple of months. My body is no where back to where it was before I got pregnant.
It ‘s be a while since I posted! I just wanted to update you that we are all well! We were finishing up our school year before a vacation. We had our final co-op spring program. This was wonderful. The drama class put on a performance of The Emperor’s New Clothes. So much fun. Matthew had the lead. He was so excited and had 80+ lines to memorize. I needed to come up with 9 costumes for my kiddos. 4 for the emperor, 4 gowns with eclectic style for the emperor’s daughter and a butler costume! Whew, that made life very busy!
I also was able to help with a few alterations etc for other kids in the co-op. The ladies were very sweet to call me a “master seamstress” through all this! I don’t know that the title was deserved!
I also spent the semester teaching 7 girls how to quilt between the ages of 8-11. While there were a few moments that I wondered if they would all get it done I am glad to report that they all finished them and they looked great! I was so totally proud of them. It was great to see them all displayed at the final program!
Other than those 2 big things, we are just trying to wind down for the summer. I always laugh at myself this time of year because I have such huge expectations for the summer. Kids will do math everyday, finish up the bit of science and writing that didn’t get done before vacation, organize and de-clutter my whole house, plan the next school year, spend plenty of time outside…the list goes on and on. I can’t wait to report back in August at how much of that list has gone by the wayside! I will bet it will be quite a bit.
Oh, I forgot to tell you all that I am blogging once a month with Hearts at Home! You might have caught my last month’s post on Balance. Reason I am telling you is that I won a book from that post and will be giving it away end of May or beginning of June. I am super excited so make sure you check back so that you don’t miss it! Who doesn’t love a free book?
