What's Going On Here ?

Spring is here, and all things GREEN are singing praises to Our Lord.

Our garden is tilled and is awaiting plants and seeds .... our flower beds are weeded and the perinneals we planted last year are coming up day by day. Our roses are putting on a spectacular show this year -- each is an explosion of blooms.

On (this) Saturday, both of our soccer teams will finish their seasons. We will follow our last game with an End-Of-Season party of pizza, and will give the players their trophies. It was a great season, but our family will be happy for CALM days ahead without the need to rush to the park for practices and games.

And what are we going to do with all of these free afternoons, once soccer is finished ?? Well, our first task is to get our garden planted -- corn, tomatoes, green beans, peas, zucchini, yellow squash, cantelopes, watermelons. And after our garden is "set to rights", we are going to gradually begin painting each room in our house -- I painted the kitchen and the boys bedrooms last fall, but we have yet to paint the main rooms (school room, living room, front foyer and hall, girls room, etc) since moving in a year ago. In between "tasks", we are planning some nice day and weekend outings locally --- into the mountains, Nature Hikes, to the lake, picnics, and more. We really hope to begin tennis lessons before it get TOO hot, and the children are anxious to begin their Runner's Training plans.

We are now in the last leg of our school year -- we should finish up at the end of June. HOORAY !! We will take July off, and perhaps the first week of August, and then will begin our next homeschool year.

I suppose there will be few "Lazy Dog Days" of summer here at Beck's Bounty, but we are looking foward to some restful relaxing days in between all that we have planned for this summer.
