Wow, already the end of May, this month really does fly by.
May was good.
Busy, fun, hectic, hot and packed full of lots of lasts-last days of school, the end of
preschool, first grade field trips and the last day at our "old" school....
There was a much-anticipated book release, days with cousins, a trip to the Farm,
a Pie Raffle, breakfast in bed and a very special Mother's Day.
A new doll house, the first strawberries from the farmer's market, country drives, baseball,
and planting a garden.
Yep, May was good but now we are ready for June and new routines and all it has to bring.
I am excited about the summer.
I don't want to have too high of expectations for the summer but last summer was not the best ever
and I am hoping for a different sort of summer this year.
Last summer was all about living in my head and fear -panic, anxiety, dr. appts, tests, medication
and a horrible cycle of little-to-no sleep.
It was a hard summer for me mentally and emotionally.
I was so tired from not sleeping at night that I could barely drag myself out of bed in the mornings.
I am ready for new challenges, changes and a new direction--but more on that later.
Wish me luck!
Tomorrow I will be back with a post all about surviving this Summer at home with kids.
I have a plan...some ideas, projects, links and recipes I plan to share weekly.
Believe me, I fancy myself no expert on this matter but working with kids age birth-5 for so long
I think I do have a lot of ideas to share that might help someone else out.
If you have anything in particular you are looking for ideas on--crafts, recipes, day outings,
no-cost activities, indoor activities, outside activities, etc let me know.
Hope you all have a great day.
It's a little chilly and rainy here but we'll take it--we have no commitments and an open day...
I think I like it.
