Thank goodness it is Friday!!! and after this week, I am so thankful it is Friday and that it is a long weekend ahead of me. What have we planned......nothing, and everything! Our plans are scheduled around the house and property. Rick started empting out the pool and he and Greta have grand plans to have it opened by Memorial Day [and Otto thinks that is just perfect, because I believe that young man is part fish!]
We had a very busy week....lots of fun and exploring. We found a lost baby duck.......searched and searched for its parents. We have a pair of Mallards at the pond [but they have not yet had their brood] and our neighbors pond has a pair of geese that already have good size goslings....so 'Lucky Duck' is a mystery. Since I have way too many things on my plate these days, we decided the best place for 'Lucky Duck' to go is Ms. Bonny's up the lane [Bonny is an amazing woman who has the most incredible farm]......and we get to go visit 'Lucky Duck' when we visit with Ms. Bonny and go riding.
I just finished a very good book called 'A Lesson Before Dying' by Ernest J. Gaines. The book made me really reflect.
And we had a major decision made this week. We are officially going to homeschool Emma Sage. I will write about the process that brought us to this decision later, but right now I feel so much better than I did a week ago.
Katrina had a blast at prom...and I have pictures and her adventures to share.
Greta took 4th out of 72 runners in the 100meter and 5th out of 68 runners in the high hurdles this week.
Otto is healing well....he is back at school and his friends really missed him [which made him feel so good!]
Rick is home for a week and then off to Japan for 9 days, home for 3 and then off to Italy for 16 days.
and I had a nice, large, icy Margarita tonight with a friend and just sat and talked......man, oh man,,,,Life is good!
