Here's what we did this week:
We had a nice slow morning. Our afternoon playgroup was cancelled because most of the group was busy. This was our first gift of time. I spent the afternoon catching up on things, doing homework, and taking a break from my super hectic life. It was sad for the kids, but fantastic for me!
In the morning we did all of our general work. In the afternoon I had class. We took a field trip to the Minneapolis Institute of Art and saw some really amazing antiquities. After I was done with my class tour, wrote an essay, and did a little in-museum assignment, I had a half hour to kill before taking the big yellow bus back to school. I used my half hour to get a chai tea and sit and relax. It was really great. While I was gone, the girls did the work I set out for them, and then binge watched The Munsters.
Our other gift of time happened today, when the person who was going to teach our fishing clinic cancelled. We were all so bummed :( We used our afternoon to go to the mall and do a little retail therapy.
It was a great week to re-establish our routine and get in the groove.
