Ten Minute Post


Spring is around the corner and I'm getting antsy.

The snow is gone, and daffodils have come up. That lovely Amaryllis has already come and gone, but I thought this post needed a little bit of happy color.

School feels a little bit harder each week. The routine I crave so much at end of summer is now feeling like a chore. This is the time of year when finishing well starts to sounds like a bad idea-- let's just chuck the books and move in at the pool. But quitting isn't on the syllabus, so I press on!

I'm ready to have some summer time with the kids. This will be my last year of homeschooling with The Boy. He will go to a public high school next year that will allow him to earn college credit while finishing his junior and senior year. I am thrilled that he will get this opportunity, but it will be strange not to have him in the house all day. We are all ready to see him stretch his wings, but my heart knows this is just a sign of the times to come. I can't believe how quickly these years barrel through!

Let's see what else can I tell you in the 6 minutes I have left…

I have spent a lot of time in the studio getting ready for a big project I have coming up in April and May. I will be teaching elementary art classes in my home. It's a sort of trial run, to see if this is something I might like to do next fall. I've really enjoyed teaching art in our homeschool co-op this year and I think it might be something I would enjoy doing on my own… maybe even something I might do when my own chicks have flown the coop!


Times up!

Happy Monday!

Miss Kellie the art teacher. Sounds awesome. I know your feelings re: the boy (and the girl). It's not that we don't want them to stretch their wings. It's just that yesterday they were crawling. ;)
