Back Again

Word Family PicnicTo work and school, that is.  This week "off" really took a lot out of us grownups.  I did something funny to my neck yesterday afternoon that is really testing my limits for pain.  Oh, well, today is the day to dig out the heating pad and try to transcend it.  It is time for life to get back to normal (and slow down).

Having few pictures right now (who wants to see a room with no curtains and nothing on the walls?), here's one from week before last.  Willow is starting to take off on reading.  She's reading her word family coloring book here.  Yesterday, she made a sign using words she already knew.  These are simple things, but they are significant and evidence of discovery-based learning at work.

In other news, it snowed over the weekend and there was a killing freeze.  I'm not sure how apples and cherries and blueberries will do this year.  Time will tell, as I told Roan.  We did our best to cover (and re-cover) things in the driving winds.  I feel glad that I have been a little slow at things and that we got the violet jelly made last weekend.  Winter's last roar?  I kind of hope so.

This is a bit dismal, I know.  I hope today's sunshine and warmth help things along.  I am getting excited for Roan's birthday and then our first May day celebration with a May pole.  More of that forward, yes.

Look at Willow go! It's really amazing to look back to where we started this year, and where we are now, right? So much learned nd done.

I do hope the plants do ok!

I hope your poor neck is feeling better. It's unlikely, though not unheard of, that we will have anymore winter here this month - though I do recall a great freeze in April at some time in the past. So happy for Willow and her reading! - Stacey

A Blessed Wilderness

It was just like being in heaven, being in there. In those days there was no road. The park was all a blessed wilderness. I have often thought what a wonderful people we would have been if we had wanted to keep it that way.
