Weekend Wind-Down {May 23}

I'm amazed that it's Memorial Day weekend.  Little League has us busy, as well as the end of the year school activities.

Last weekend one of the schools where I taught celebrated their 125th anniversary.  They hosted a huge festival.  Big Sister, Brother, and I enjoyed the festivities.  They loved their painted faces.  Big Sister is an adorable puppy and Brother is a crabby crab (who smiles).  A teen recognized and hugged me.  I had tutored her and her sister and it thrilled me to catch up for a few minutes.
Big Sister has FOUR weeks of school left.  [Groan!]  Thankfully, Brother
only has a week of preschool remaining.  I'm ready for summer to begin.

Our short summer calendar filled up quickly with these week-long activities.

  • VBS (at least one)
  • Weaving (4-H and libary--if Big Sister is allowed.  She's not quite old enough.)
  • Family Camp
  • Science in the Summer (Library)
  • Swim Lessons
  • Swim Lessons
  • Family visit to northeastern PA
This week on the blog I shared a homemade ranch mix, my morning routine (with $1.50 coupon), and how to stop a bully.

Please join us for the Weekend Wind-Down Party.  We would love to feature and pin you!  Follow the rules to be considered for a feature.
