Hey moms and grandmas, come on out and play. It's recess time!
Well, we evidently have a new breakfast trend, involving eating outdoors at the small bistro set on the front porch. I won't object (and the wireless signal is excellent...the modem is 6 feet away through a wall, LOL). DS and I are enjoying each other's company, and a delicious breakfast. He woke up early and "hid" from me by sitting on the back deck reading his Kindle book, but so far he hasn't accomplished anything of what he's supposed to do, which means I'll start feeling stressed in a short time because much of what I have to do involves what he has to do! Sigh.
DD got a 97% on her econ final yesterday, and an A in speech (also a 97 last semester on gov't without even studying for the final, because someone forgot to tell her when the final was, oops!). I'm super proud of her this year, facing the adversity she's faced and overcoming and doing well academically. It hasn't been easy, but she's done it. Technically, she could be done with history, if I count her 8th grade US history...but I'm not telling her that. I'd like her to do one more year of history, and then her senior year she could do some electives like psychology or something else of interest. OH, and I forgot to mention...she's working through the AP Music Theory test prep book with her music teacher, so she'll be able to take that test before entering college. Should help her learn some things and cement some concepts, along the way.
We don't have to go anywhere today. Yay, a day at home. Mostly. Just short runs to post office, ATM, and the "temporary nursery" to get some plants. Herbs, ds wants strawberry plants (so he can grow ginormous strawberries that he can hollow out and fill with chocolate syrup and whipped topping ), and I need a hanging flower basket to replace one that dh broke over the winter, and some flowers to plant in the old hanging baskets and planter baskets. I am so ready for pretty things! (The tulips in the backyard went from no buds at all, to the next day buds with color. Things have literally exploded with the two very warm days we just had!)
