What a week!! For a short week we've sure managed to fill it up so we come to Friday feeling like it's been extra long!! All good stuff - just lots of it!

As the school year draws to an end we have so many more functions to attend - even though we homeschool. Recitals, concerts and year end workshops and so much more. Our homeschool co-op does a fabulous job of showcasing all the kid's hard work from the year. This evening was my daughter's fiddle recital. It was tons of fun and she even danced with 3 other kids to some of the Celtic fiddle music. She did such a good job!! Pictures will be coming - my friend Simply Stork took pictures for me - Thank you, Simply! She's an excellent photographer with a camera that works - unlike me :0). Pop on over to see her - she's lots of fun!

The weather has really changed and it seems like summer with arrive after all! Sunshine is breaking out all over!!

I'm so happy - my garden is springing up with amazing speed. So far I've seen radish sprouts, tiny green onions are showing up, the peas - snow and sugar snap - have appeared, purple chard has popped up and the cucumbers have been sighted!! My pole beans are beginning their climb, yellow wax, burgundy king, fillet and Romano bush beans have all been springing up and a few zucchinis are making an appearance. I'm still waiting on the fingerling potatoes and the carrots, winter squash and the pumpkins. They'll arrive soon with the sun warming up the soil like it has the last couple of days. My tomato and lettuce starts are happily adding new growth along with my marigolds and cosmos that I planted to bring the bees to my yard.

I've also been able, with this lovely weather, to start hanging our clothes outside on the line. My sweet hubby got out my line early one morning this week before he left for work - he even wiped it all down for me. What a honey!! Normally I don't enjoy laundry chores (okay - normally I hate laundry chores - mainly because the minute you think the job is done a basket gets filled up with more dirty clothes!!) But I do love hanging our clothes early in the morning and then taking those crisp, sweet smelling clothes down in the afternoon and folding them right there - listening to the birds and the kids playing and looking at my garden!! It's never a chore then - it's a blessing!
I am so grateful that God has given me this home and family to care for!! Some days are rather yucky and others are filled with treats - but whatever the day holds I know it is a privilege to do this task God has put in front of me!!!
