Five rather random thoughts and 5 photos from Memorial Day
Suddenly, it is June! The iris are in bloom, the grass is green, and the trees seem to have ceased their constant releasing of yellow pollen. For the iris and the beauty of the world around me, I am grateful. MusicMan is very grateful that he can stop taking Benedryl.
My calendar is rapidly filling with details for the month. I have a beautiful calendar that hangs on the wall between the pantry and the laundry room… but we tend to not use it. Instead, everything gets “written” on Google Calendar in various colors. Today I finally manged to make dental appointments for 4 of us and a doctor appointment (physical) for SnakeMaster’s scout camp. Then in rapid succession, we were informed of 2 award ceremonies for next week (H-J is amazing his teachers) and a “fund run” for the elementary school.
Did you know that Flag Day is June 14th? For some reason, our house doesn’t have a flag bracket so we haven’t yet been able to hang out our flag on appropriate days. I’m a little embarrassed by this omission. Maybe it can be corrected by that Thursday…
SuperDad and I are discussing options for a week of camping. No matter which week we choose, something will have to flex or be given up if all 6 of us are going to go camping together. In my mind, it shouldn’t be that difficult since no one in my house has a paying job. But then again, the calendar is rapidly filling up for the month of June.
It’s too late for H-J to sign up for an online PE class this summer (he prefers to take academic classes during the school day, and he still has a Physical Education requirement to fulfill) but he did find out about a Computer Programming Academy… so July may fill up fast, too!
