I feel like April is often one of the busiest months of the year, and it was certainly a fun and busy time for us. Our homeschool group wrapped up for the school year, which was bittersweet, but I am enjoying the break. We finished off the year with a live concert from our kids’ favorite musician and some ice cream. I am enjoying leisurely planning and preparing for the fall for both kids, and slowing our pace down a bit. This is Bud with his partner for his egg protector project (the egg broke):
I wrapped up another Bradley series full of great couples (I think one of my favorite things about teaching is meeting all these neat people), and I just started another series. Actually, I have two series going on now, demand was so high that I have two full classes. Since this is my last time to teach this year, it works out well, but we’ll see how teaching twice a week goes for our family. I’m shopping for some new birth and breastfeeding videos, so if anyone has a recommendation, I would love to hear it. I also got to give a lecture on breastfeeding basics for an OB class at the nursing school at A&M. That was quite the experience, I was so nervous, but it was fun.
Our garden is in full-swing. We have been eating broccoli at least twice a week (Thomas is loving this, no, not really), and we have a lot of green tomatoes and a baby cauliflower out there. We will be harvesting carrots, onions and potatoes soon, Lord willing. I think our garden is really aching for some rainwater these days, everything is about sick of all this tap water.
I like this picture which shows the fun that can happen when planting with little ones. You will notice a cucumber plant and a carrot or two growing in the midst of our onions.
