We have been keeping busy lately. School of course is the number one priority, and we have had plenty of that. But sports seem to be taking up a whole lot of time as well. We are well under way in basketball season, and with two kids participating, we have four out of five nights of practice. Good thing gas has gotten cheaper!
With all of the craziness of schedules, we have made sure to go on a few field trips. The Spiral Jetty, being one of them. It is a wild land up there, so the kids built a fort that I am pretty sure we may never find again. Or it could go untouched for years, it is that stark. But the starkness is what makes it surprisingly beautiful up there. We have also gone to the Natural History museum. That was a cool day. A tour guide “adopted” us and told us all sorts of interesting things. We have been there many times, but have never learned as much as we did that day. I am trying to get us all out of the house as much as possible. Staying inside the house all day can get a little ho hum.
Our life is not exciting, but it is full. Time together, living, loving and learning. I am so grateful. Simply grateful.
I hope you all are having a wonderful week, and Happy Hump Day!
