Not to be missed...

I'm late for a recap of the week, but here we go anyway...Cleaning the nature table for the changing of the season...
Spring is quietly emerging everywhere; the hills were dusted red with maple flowers as we drove to visit friends...
The week was mostly about Joy - being with friends, learning new things together, getting some time away (a massage! and a movie! in a theater! with dinner and a friend!).
 Math this week looked like...well, a lot of things! Weaving, Shut-the-box, manipulatives...even, "Mom, could we do flashcards?" Um...ok. Those can be fun too...
 My moods this week have been as fickle as March herself. Hot and cold. Balmy and then snow. Checking on the garden, seeing things grow, helped. Having Dan around this week helped.
On our warmest day we found ourselves at a creek, just before a thunderstorm, building dams.
And back to cold gloom, at a warm coffeeshop.  We don't go when it's over-run with students, so spring break is our time to sip chai and play games.
So, you see - not bad at all. We ended our week with farm school, and market, and weekly potluck with friends.  Good for me to look back when the blues slip in, good to look and see the days for what they really were - filled with good stuff and normal stuff and extraordinary stuff, just as it should be, and just as I would want it to be.

hi! i'm here via stacie.. your week looks like there was some good learning going on. i have been feeling the same ups and downs lately and also was thinking it's good to remember on the down days how your luck can turn so quickly.
