almost

May: May is quite possibly the hardest month of the year.  In the last week one child has sprayed the curtains and carpets with sickness, one has a Cleopatra project, one has a Tennessee history project, and one has a Fibonacci unit to complete with original photographs.  Add in work, dentist appointments, and baseball and I just need all the things to stop.  And yet, summer is on the way, in transit as we speak. Hurry Summer, hurry!

MBS

otherwise known as manic baking syndrome

yes, I have self diagnosed- it’s ok cause I’m a psychologist and all

I’ve been up since 2

so I do what any God-fearing, southern girl does:

I make a casserole and roast some chicken for later in the week

yesterday it was two loaves of bread, a three layer cake, from scratch marinara, and two potato casseroles

I stir and simmer and think of all the women all over the globe and through the ages doing the same task and smile, even at 2 am

 

Family Fun

Doesn’t every family have a plaid filled picnic in a pine grove while seated stair steps?  This one was too cheesy for the Christmas Card but too cheesy not to share.  Enjoy!

We got our tree and wreath from Sycamore Springs again this year.  The tree is just slightly off center, but then again so are we.  Match made in heaven!

I used four different types greenery on the wreath.  Wild but fun!

When Joey first fixed the new steps I imagined decorating them for Christmas!  So much better than the broken brick

it’s been about six months, six months of life being well, life-y
the good, the bad, the magnolia-y

it’s been a rainy season of relief, relief from a particularly toxic school year

I have found myself amazed by life
by good books and friendship
flowers and long days that stretch with the possibility of space, pure white space
these are the salt of the soul and I am soaking in the sea

my children are thriving and growing like wild things and I am overwhelmed by the goodness of the season
