Highlights of the Week
We had a nice spring weather this week - clear skies, cool mornings, warm days, blooming flowers. Our landscaping project was progressing nicely this week, and we are hoping to be done by the next weekend. We all survived the first week back to school - always a bit of a challenge after a break. Most importantly, we are all back to being healthy and can enjoy this spring weather so much more.
We are making some changes in Smarty's after school schedule - she wanted to go to earlier, less crowded, taekwondo classes. Unfortunately, this change only makes her March schedule more complex, but she will get more free time once April rolls around. She spends most of her free time reading, but she was excited to try out her new Lip Balm Lab and whip out some lip balms for everyone. Her Dad even helped her design a small lip balm container and printed a few of them on our 3D printer.
What My Child Is Reading
Smarty did not share her opinions about any of her current reads with me, but these are some of the library books that she was reading (or rereading) this week:
Best Memory This Week
It's my favorite time of the year when many trees burst out in pretty blooms. While it felt that it was a hard week, with some arguments at work and at home, I made a point to stop and take in a beauty of the world around us. While I enjoyed these gorgeous colors of spring, I reminded myself that my time with my little Smarty is drawing to an end and that I have to embrace this journey into tween and teen years by providing both love and support to her while treasuring moments of closeness when they occur.
