Outside my window... it is dark and surprisingly cool. The rain must have brought some cooler air with it.
I am wondering... if we'll really finish up the school year by the end of May. I am hoping so, and then we can take off at least 4-6 weeks before starting 2nd grade. I'm planning to do an end-of-the-year "party" by going to the fountains and then to our local frozen yogurt shop to celebrate... maybe I can get a few other homeschooling families to join our celebration!
To live the liturgical year... we celebrated the Pope's birthday a bit late... I made a German chocolate cake and Chris grilled bratwurst! We're using the Garden of the Good Shepherd sticker calendar to count the days of Easter. Maybe we'll do something for the ascension next week... these things have kinda fallen by the wayside this year. :(
I am creating... a 2nd grade schedule. And not much else. Although I do need to refill and stuff a beanbag Lucy got ahold of. FYI: baby slobber goes through fabric, and dry beans react to just the slightest bit of moisture... 'nuff said.
Around the house... uh, let's not even think about this one, because I don't think I've dusted since before Lucy's birth, and the only reason the tub and shower ever get clean is because Chris does that. Although I have implemented chore chart for both Caroline and Cecilia, which is going pretty well, although I need to remind/monitor Cecilia on it better than I do. And I did finally get the winter clothes swapped out for summer clothes and my maternity clothes put away (if you loaned me maternity clothes and want them back, please let me know!). Now to deal with the clothing boxes all over our extra bedroom... don't know that we should put them away completely because Cecilia might need those same jeans in the fall, and Caroline will still fit in all her long sleeves again this coming fall...
