Today, I have the laundry and dishes going. I also ordered my son’s birthday gift online this morning. He is getting a set of building Legos for his 8th birthday. I enjoyed building houses with Legos as a child and I wanted him to have the same experience. He likes to sit and spend time with projects like that, so I thought he’d really enjoy them. I don’t know what happened to my set. And we never have bought any. I have yet to figure out what we’re doing to celebrate his birthday.
I am about to head out to the garden to plant a few more plants I picked up (not all of my seeds germinated and there are a few things we just HAVE to have). My oldest son is going to help with the weeds while I am out there. My second son is going to hang out with us and my daughter and third son are going to stay in the house. Maybe I will have them vacuum?
Then we’ll come in and do our math work, language arts and lunch. Then I need to bathe my third son and get him ready to go to the doctor. He has a buckle fracture in his wrist and this is the day to follow up with the doc on it. It is hard to see my little guy with a splint on. He really wants that thing off, too. He keeps asking me to take it off. Poor little guy. He will be a big two year old boy next month! We’re going camping to celebrate his birthday. Everyone is excited about that!
Then I think we will read a bit and have some free time while I do some more laundry. Always laundry!
We had VBS last week and my two older children really enjoyed it. They learned a lot about Creation, what happened after the Tower of Babel, etc. I learned some things, too. I didn’t know before which grandchildren of Noah ended up where in the world, and that was interesting to learn about.
Well, I have to go get busy before it’s too hot to go out to the garden. I will check back in tomorrow and share what’s on our plates then. You wait for summer to have a break, but there really is too much to do now, too!
