It is Saturday, and we are home.
Home ALL day.
Home with nowhere to be.
Home with projects to work on (boy was our lawn due for a mowing, which Mr. Blue Eyes is tending to right this minute) but nothing so pressing that it is bearing down our mildly tanned necks.
Home where the sunflowers grow, corgis and Burleys nap, kitties frolick, and the rabbits and the antelope play.
(All true except for the antelope part.)
I can't tell you how happy this makes me. With the amount of busy-ness we've had all summer, just being home on a Saturday feels like a foreign concept. Yet it feels so, so, so very right.
I'm also feeling groovy because we completed our first (successful, I might add!) week of homeschool. Ever. First week ever. I'll never be able to say that again, because this is our first week... ever. And it was good. And we completed it. And nobody cried. Not even me. And we all learned something. Especially me.
We completed our first ever successful week of homeschool. Have I mentioned that? Just in case you missed it, I wanted to mention it again.
At some point in this blissful day of self-imposed home-boundedness I'm determined to write about our first week of homeschool (over on my homeschool page). There were so many funny, special, interesting things about the week that I want to share.
In other news this week, Little Blue Eyes officially has the cutest toothless grin I have ever seen...
I don't know what it is, but I just love kids without their two front teeth, especially this kid. He says he's not opting to do any jobs to earn a quarter here and there around the house these days because he's holding out for lost-tooth money. He also has a hard time taking pictures in any kind of sunlight whatsoever, so this is his new philosophy on such photos...
I may be a little biased, but I'm pretty sure he's a two-front-toothless genius.
Now I must go as Short Stack appears to have climbed out of his crib (for the first time ever... I guess this is our week for 'first time ever' kinds of things!) and I must tend to his short, snuggly yet surprisingly agile little self.
By God's grace...
