It has only rained once in the last 23 days here in Pennsylvania. It is very crunchy outside. A few days ago Ella and I picked some flowers that survived our current drought. We gave them to Vivian when she woke up -- flowers make Vivian very happy. Every afternoon while Vivian naps, Ella and I spend time together naming flowers, trees, plants, digging in dirt, riding bikes, climbing trees -- she doesn't want to come inside. She even insisted that she nap outside.
She is enjoying the freedom of her new home. One minute she is climbing a tree and the next she is snuggling on the couch with me while I read aloud our newest chapter book "The Farmer Boy." Click here to check out this cool website for Little House on the Prairie fans. There is so much to incorporate into our homeschooling adventure with these precious books.
As for me, I am also enjoying the freedom this house has given our family. Life is completely different here. It is what I dreamed of and yet I am suprised of the time it is taking for me to adjust and find my inner rhythm. This weekend we carved out a space for my desk. My husband did something to make the internet less frustrating and I am happy that I now have a space to create, communicate and be inspired. What inspires you?
