Outside my window: my garden!! It's growing and the kids are super excited to see that there are little tomatoes starting to come. My lettuce was a bust, so I'm going to have to research and try again another year. Zucchini are always a sure thing! The eggplant looks robust, but I'm unsure about the peppers... Whatever happens, I'm just calling this "my first year" and chalking the rest up to lessons learned!
On that note: A shoutout to the "Nate the Great" series of early readers, and also the "Great Mouse Detective" series. Haven't read them all yet, but excited to, and so are my middles. I LOVE summer reading!
(Which reminds me to add) Grateful: Our Galadriel tested at a 2nd grade reading level last summer. She was entering 4th grade. After 30 weeks of vision therapy, she tested at a 5th grade reading level. This June she read "Little Women" and now she's reading "The Secret Garden", with a couple other's waiting on her shelf to be read next. That's not bragging, it's gratitude. Hope for those who have struggling readers--it really can happen!!
Plans for the week: baseball season just ended with the championship games on Sunday. All our boys' teams came in second place. Sunday was lots of time outside watching baseball and a little sunburn for me.
Legolas is in speech therapy this summer. He is working hard. I honestly love the time alone with him as he works on his /s/ blends! What a kid he is!
I'm out of time as usual, but I'll go ahead and post this or I won't get anything up at all!
Have a great week!
