First Week of June

I don't know how much I'll be blogging this summer. This is my last week at home before my classes start. I'll be traveling for 7 weeks (34 days in all) three hours in the car each day. Driving makes me exhausted but I'm praying for the grace to soak up everything Montessori and also have the energy to give to my family. I'm planning to go off the grid to the rest of the world for those 7 weeks. I sort of feel like the caterpillar at the end of the chrysalis stage. Did you ever see how the chrysalis will shake if it is bothered? I think I'll be like that. Only the important things, only those that have the power to build me up before I emerge will be allowed. 

I will most likely continue with some photos on the blog so that I have a visual record of the summer and the garden. I harvested all our potatoes yesterday. It was the most fun ever. I love digging my hands in the dirt. They are delicious (the potatoes, not my hands!). I made myself a little potato soup for one last night. We had our annual Parish Picnic yesterday and I took the above plate along. Zucchini, carrots and breakfast radishes. The radishes grew crazy fast and I planted too many. Radishes anyone?

I have just a few ends to tie up this week including acclimating the boys to their housecleaning chores for the summer and finishing one last quilt. I have the sewing room cleaned up for the most part but promised a quilt to a dear friend for a dear friend of hers who just had a little boy. I'm excited about this one and will certainly show it when it is finished. 

The last photo I took from inside the house looking out the window. Nathan and our neighborhood cat, Finn, were enjoying each other's company the other day and it was just so sweet. I think Finn may be one of the best things about our neighborhood!

Happy Monday everyone!
