Morning! We have just 9 more days of home school work until summer starts and Brooke (and I;) are beyond thrilled with that number.
I cannot believe that the next time she will be going back to school she will be in third grade!
My Monday started off with a run with my sister. I have never been happier in my life to be running with somebody else after so many solo runs and I hope that before we know it, everyone will be able to do the same again. Utah’s numbers have been very very low compared to the rest of the world which is why restrictions have been lifted a bit. I am very lucky now too that I can hire my niece again to babysit when we need her… and my kids are probably even more grateful for this fact than I am.
7 miles for my sis and 8.2 miles for me with some time on the dirt which is always refreshing. The miles go by so much faster for me when I have somebody next to me.
I’ve run by this particular house at least 100 times and either I just noticed this for the first time or they just added them but they have cute painted rocks along their entire fence right now.
She prefers to hand feed her chicks. These chickens are definitely not afraid of people.
And Beretta is learning slowly but surely that she needs to give them their space.
And the only other picture I took from the day was of dinner. Brooke is loving these salmon bowls that I’m making just as much as I am. We just put in some brown rice, salmon, avocado, whatever roasted veggies we have and then topped it with some olive oil and lemon.
I have a few tangents to go over so here they are:
*Brooke has started making vlogs with her camera…. She is preparing to take over this blog someday;)
*I caught this on Skye’s camera the other night. Knox snuck into Skye’s room to give her a kiss.
*The hot tub is still happening over here and I made some cookies to go along with it.
*Our peas are definitely taking off so at least we will have those to eat:) I’m not sure about our tomatoes and a few of the other veggies making an appearance but hopefully we will just get better and better at gardening with each year.
*One terrace done and just about 6 more to do;) What was once covered completely in weeds now has a weed barrier and mulch.
*Is it weird that this news made my eyes tear up? I am just so happy for them.
*The other night we made pizza for dinner which meant Skye had ranch to dip her pizza into and then I realized that she was DIPPING HER BANANA IN RANCH. That step was even too far for Andrew and he is ranch’s #1 fan.
*Gwen Jorgensen posted what her training is looking like during Covid which I loved watching because I’m very interested to see how people are handling the current situation.
What is the strangest food or combo of foods that you’ve seen a child eat before?
Are you going to be celebrating Cinco de Mayo with any delicious Mexican food today?
When will school work be done where you are?
