I’m so glad for this meme…it really gets me writing more on my blog (at least weekly!) and I can really focus on our week and “see” all that we are doing and want to do. Plus I get to read about others’ journeys as well! Fun
Here we go…
This week we want to make lots of vegan recipes, plan play dates and time outside, finish making Hannah’s dresses, guitar lessons for Dylan and see Steve in the opening of Beauty and the Beast.
The kids are absolutely loving life! Dylan is constantly researching new foods to try and is totally into the vegan lifestyle. I have learned about so many new foods lately and have found some amazing recipes. He is also starting guitar lessons this Friday with a new instructor. Dylan is very talented and just wants to be challenged in a new direction, so I’m excited to see what comes from this experience! Hannah is totally into being active constantly, wants to socialize all the time! So, we’re trying to arrange play dates when we can, but also enjoy down time as well She has recently expressed an interest in handwriting–she wants to be able to write her name. She is creative in her expressions, so I can assume she would want to put those thoughts and expressions on paper. Sometimes I write out the play that we are performing—just so I know what my lines are supposed to be!
I am learning to simply enjoy being in the presence of my kids and take part in their journey. And be thankful and in gratitude for ALL that is present in my life.
I am struggling with connection with others. Being able to relate with others and have them relate with me and not get frustrated when they don’t try to understand my point of view. Being outside the educational, parenting, spiritual mainstream way of thinking sometimes causes people to question your sanity. Fortunately, I feel very secure and confident in who I am…
This week is the first time I traveled to a new town (about 30 minutes from the town we live in) to visit their farmer’s market. It was much bigger than I imagined (though, not really big at all) and I was able to see a section of our region that I had not seen before. The views of the mountains were breathtaking!
