Schools out for summer! Can I get a hooray! I don't know how you spend summer, but we do swim lessons and VBS, go camping, spend tons of time outside, and read.
Arent those flowers lovely? They are Mexican Evening Primrose and they thrive on little water and self seed themselves year after year. Could there be a more perfect flower to have in your garden?
Of course, school's out for summer, but learning never stops. I am teaching my son to cook his favorite meals so that he can take over dinner duties once a week. If you are wondering, the meals that he chose to learn how to make this summer are: homemade pizza, sloppy joes, and pesto paninis. He is loving every minute, which makes teaching a joy.
My daughter has been begging me to teach her how to sew, and even though I'm not a seamstress, I relented and my attempts to teach her to sew (while not knowing how to sew myself) been wildly successful because of this book. Her first four projects are shown below, but we have made many more things together.
I don't know about you, but I love summer because I finally have time to read! There's nothing better than sitting by the pool with a book. I have to be there anyway, so reading is guilt free! So far I've read Station Eleven (Fascinating!), Brideshead Revisited (Beautiful!), and the first few books of The Iliad (Because I feel like I should read it once in my life. This version is surprisingly readable!)
Last month, I only had time to read three books, so I'm excited to have two books under my belt already.
What I'm Writing
This week I wrote about teaching my daughter to sew and a few months ago I listed every classic eBook that I could find for free! I am returning to that list so I can load my Kindle up for summer. Free reading...yes, please!
