Yesterday I was so uninspired (and un-inspiring!). We spent the day outside, and the end of the day actually ended up pretty well-ly... with butterflies and moss and all.
But though we spent our day outside -and it was very nice, don't get me wrong- I felt depleted. Out of ideas.
Then there is this morning.
I visit of a few of my blogging friends Tara, Julie, Sheri, my sister Kim, Wendy, and all of a sudden, I'm juiced and ready to take on the world again.
I'm excited to make salsa, I'm thrilled to add Helen Keller to our timeline (and to choose some books about her at the library today), I'm eager to pick up George's Secret Key to the Universe (and a couple more books on Albert Einstein, who is already sitting pretty on our timeline), I'm considering a Spelling Bee with my babes-- I can just hear Maddie.... "Dog. M-U-K-D-T. Dog." And Trevelyn cussing at her. :) I'm thinking constellations and a walk... wondering if we'll get to use our umbrellas today. I'm looking out the livingroom window and considering Sheri's 100 Species challenge, and wondering if we have 100 species of plants in our yard.
And that's all it took.
My mind is filled with ideas and happy thoughts.... I am so, so grateful to everyone who shares their days, ideas, and experiences in the name of "Blog". (Though it should be a prettier word for such a Fine idea.)
I feel so lucky to be living this life (homeschooling and unschooling), with these children, in this day, with these wonderful people and ideas all around me.
Thanks so, so much, everyone!
You have my gratitude and love.
