Around here.

Around here...

We just celebrated our oldest daughter turning five last week. -This time she had a few special requests. We ordered her a princess cake, took her bowling and ate breakfast at Ihop. - These were just a few things she requested.

 I still can't believe that she's five. - She's excited for new adventures. We just finished her enrollment in school last week. I'll still be homeschooling her, but she will also be attending a local virtual school.- This way she will still have teachers and social events to attend with other students. I like to think of it as having the best of both worlds. I'll be her learning coach through the process. 

My husband has taken on a project with our front railing. He's been finishing up with the staining and last minute fixtures for it. It's really coming together. I've been sprucing a few things up around our home. - Making things a bit cozier outdoors. We're hoping to have a few more things done before summer arrives. We've been keeping an eye out for a double hammock. We found a few and now we just have to narrow it down to one.  

I'll start planting some vegetables in the upcoming weeks. I'll plant a few herbs, peppers and tomatoes. I normally keep it simple. My husband found a coffee plant while we were out shopping at a local craft store. We planted the seeds and now we just wait to see if and when it will start growing. - He's a big coffee drinker. He really enjoys roasting his own coffee beans. 

I've been keeping up with my workouts and I feel great! I've also been trying to catch up on sleep. I find it difficult to fall asleep at night, but I'm noticing if I eliminate my use of electronics in the bedroom it really does help.  

We still take our trips to the library and attend special events. 

Our littlest one is all about exploring. She enjoys coloring and painting so much.  She really looks up to her big sister.  

So here we are...
Life has been treating us well and even when we are busy we take time and count our blessings.

How are you spending your days lately? 

****Welcome new readers! I'm so happy to have you all here.****
