taking a moment to find joy in the little things
I love where I live, especially this time of year. Spring is in full swing here - you might say we are at peak. I had intended to go to the tulip farm this past weekend, but ended up sick in bed instead. So, I've just walked around my neighborhood and here's what I found....
We have had amazing weather recently - sunny and warm. It's been wonderful to spend time outdoors every day. I know more typical spring weather will return, as will the rain, but we're soaking up the sunshine in the meantime.
Also fun and happy...our family worked a Compassion concert this past weekend. It's always fun to be part of something bigger than us and helping over 80 kids get sponsored was amazing!
the weeds will grow wherever they can
make up your mind...are you a tree with green leaves or red leaves?
and this tree...cracks me up every year...half pink blossoms and half white blossoms
I know the above pics are examples of trees that have been grafted, and I think it's cool. This white tree, though, must have been a mistake because it's the ONLY white tree in a very long row of pink trees. It's definitely out of place.
This time of year is so hard for me when it comes to school. The end is in sight and I feel the pressure to finish strong, but at the same time, I just want to be done. I want to go to tulip fields and rhododendron gardens. I want to plant my garden and go on long walks. Yet finish we must, so we are back to "bare bones" homeschooling right now.
