I love the idea of Spring more than I actually like Spring itself I think. I think it was a month of old standbys and “what is in the fridge that I can pull together” kind of meals. I ended up missing all of G’s events, and R missed half of H’s game as he was off with G at those events. On the same day, which was aggravating. I’m not one of the leaders though, so it’s easy for me to not feel the same need for a break from everything. Even with all that I still feel like I spent a lot of time in a fog. Levitt and Stephen J. ?
I think we’re going to wrap-up this year of homeschooling for our summer break. Thank you for supporting The Deliberate Reader! Belt testing – G went for recommended black belt (black belt with a red stripe down the middle), and H for senior blue belt (which is the last belt that attends the intermediate classes). For the first time ever in his taekwondo career, G did not pass a belt testing. Unfortunately, his last day here was the day of the kids baseball/softball opening events, so R didn’t get to see much of him that last day as we were off with the kids. It’s also possible we won’t have any summer break, and will do school every day we don’t have something else planned (like VBS or Cub Scout camp)
Cub Scouts wraps up for the year, which is bittersweet. He took the disappointment really well, and is ready to retry in June. R’s brother visited for a few days, and the kids were SO EXCITED to see him. And by that I mean pollen. Allergies have been rough this year and I’ve been doing all of my crunchy natural remedies and using some OTC medicine too, in an attempt to keep myself functional. It’s possible we may go into June a little bit though; I’m not completely decided on what we’ll do. That means he’s now been participating in Awana for 5 years, which seems crazy to me. He messed up something on his form (his arm was turned up when it should have been down, or it was down when it should have been up, I don’t remember). Heinlein (audio)
