Tired/Sunshine

I'm really, really tired. I think that all of the emotion of last week, combined with some crazy busy-ness this weekend, has worked together to throw me completely for a loop. I struggle with lagging energy in general, but can usually keep my head above water. I've done so well this winter. I hate to start slipping now, when spring is only two and half months away. (I live in WA, where "spring" is a relative term that is used to describe not only the state of growth in plants, but also the stop of the rainy season.)

We managed to crash out a bit of school today, but my heart was not 100% in it. The sun is shining and the kids are restless. I have a feeling that the very best things they are going to learn today involve sticks and dirt, not books and pencils.

We are feeling it too! I've been fighting off a cold for a few weeks now...it's just DRAGGING ON so we did practically NO school yesterday and today, after a half-hearted attempt, I sent them out to play in the sun. After all, here in Western WA...you gotta enjoy it when you can! Hugs to you MG as you rest up from your emotionially exhausting week.

"I have a feeling that the very best things they are going to learn today involve sticks and dirt, not books and pencils." I love that. Some days are, indeed, all about dirts, sticks, and, around here, fire.
