We’ve been busy bees lately. Here’s a little of what we’ve been up to.

We dyed Easter eggs.  (Yes, it’s been that long since my last post.)


I made a “smoked”  brisket in the crock pot for Easter, using Rudy’s Rub Husband brought back from a business trip to Texas. Because that’s what you bring home from Texas, and this is what you do with it.


We discovered that Caedmon is allergic to wasp stings, and joined the EpiPen club.


We ran a couple of drive-thru errands one day, and took Oz with us. He enjoyed the trip.


We got our garden started.


We spent some time getting our “safe place” ready for spring storms. We haven’t had to sit in there yet, but Honor has her spot all picked out.


Caedmon’s homeschool enrichment class had Field Day, and he brought home these awesome ribbons.


Our homeschool group visited a diary farm. We went on a hay ride, got to meet a dairy cow, pet her, see how cows are milked, and pet a new calf. We also ate some of their freshly made ice cream and played on the playground.


Caedmon’s end of the year ceremony with his sweet teacher, Mrs. J.


Caedmon received the “Detailed Historian Award” from Mrs. J. It was appropriate that when we got back in the car, this was sitting on the front seat.


We bring home a bag full of books just like this every time we go to the library.

Honor got some new goggles.


We went to pick strawberries. (She’s teaching the kids how to find the “grown up” berries.)


The pool opened the day we went to pick berries, so we had to go! (Caedmon got a new mask & snorkel!)


And then that afternoon, I made strawberry jam.


It didn’t quite set up, but it tastes so good, I don’t really care.

We had errands to run while Honor was at MDO one day, so Caedmon got to do math while we took a break at Starbucks. He’s quickly learning that “school” can be anywhere…and he kind of likes the idea.


Today is Honor’s last MDO for the school year. It’s about to officially be summer at our house, y’all! I don’t know when we’re going to find time to relax!

  1. Love the iPhone in the left hand as he dyes eggs with his right. ;-)

    1. Haha! I didn't even notice that! He was probably posting a picture on Instagram. :)
