Today the kids were just cute. Of course I didn't get any pictures; I was just soaking it all in, relishing the sweetness of almost 7 and 3 and 1/2. We were inside all day, so happy and peaceful. We went through the school routine. Both Lucy and Jasper are in a very enthusiastic phase about school. Lucy loves to play recorder. She and I are doing rounds and that thrills her. Jasper made song requests and just seems to get a kick out of all the school stuff too. We read together lots, we made and ate food. Then I drove Lucy to choir at 4:30 while the menfolk stayed home and worked on the garden. In the mini-van, Lucy told me, "Mom, when I get older, I want to be quite old-fashioned."
And here are some random pics from the week. The dress-up Lucy pics are from her Northwest Girlchoir concert last weekend.
Our Fridays usually include time with our dear friends, Juliette and Sebastian. We have a good time. Jasper was still recovery from a virus in the picture and the next; you can see it in his eyes.
Jasper is usually wearing his cowboy hat these days and often is also carrying a fishing pole. Quite a look, really.

We're all finally well. We are considering our schooling options (again) for next year. I know the right decision will come to us.... I love homeschooling Lucy, but am not sure it is right to continue for another year. We're actually going to look at our local public school on Friday. We'll let you know...
