Monday the 13th...
The wild weather roller coaster ride begins. It got almost cold enough to freeze this morning, so we covered all our tender plants up just in case last night. Today is supposed to be 60 degrees and tomorrow above 80. The goal of today is to get as much done in our lessons as possible because tomorrow will be a busy day away from home sweet homeschool. Still no hummingbirds here yet, by the way. I am trying to be patient. I put out a suet cake and it was gone by evening, so no more will be going up for awhile. Time for them to eat bugs.

Tuesday the 14th...
Today is Grandma's 91st birthday. To celebrate, we went to Panera with Nana and then to the nursing home to deliver a bunch of ballons, which the residents all enjoy. Grandma was very excited to see us. Her whole face lights up and you just know she knows who we are. She even called my aunt by name. And she wanted to hold everyone's hands. My aunt brought all of Grandma's photo albums and we spent time dividing the photos. I am in picture heaven! In the evening, the guys went to play disc golf while Grace went to a meeting a church with Nana.

Wednesday the 15th...
Oh, it is so warm today, over 85 and so humid, too! We need to spend time today working on lessons and catching up laundry. Isolated thunderstorms are moving in tonight. Otherwise a quiet, lazy day after art class. I made pizza for dinner. I am getting really good at making dough by hand.

Thursday the 16th...
Storms woke us up during the night. Nothing very violent, just noisy enough to wake us all up. I am thankful for the rain. Everything is so green and the leaves are about full sized. Today, Grace and I went to a couple stores before school time. And, I broke down and turned the air on! Not a thing I take lightly. But it is so humid that I can't think straight, much less work! Hopefully, the humidity will go down again soon so that I can enjoy this view.

Thankfully, the humidity is back down to tolerable, so the air was turned off last night before bed and the windows are back open this morning, making the kitties happy. Speaking of the kitty cats, I have not given them a chance to interact this whole week. I have kept them apart hoping to try to reintroduce them when I get the courage to try again. Today we will stay home and work on finishing up our lessons. Since the weather is better, I also want to ride bikes after lunch. We will also make an effort to put away all the books, too. We have not done too bad of a job keeping a clear path through the living room, my request this week. Usually the books get scattered on the floor along with a ton of Lego bricks, making it a hazardous journey across the floor by Friday.
This weekend, we will be visiting with family from NC and friends from NY. I am looking forward to the chance to meet Jeannie and her family. It is always fun to meet online friends.
Have a great weekend!
