My sisters and I
I'm stuck in a rut of a loss of words. Honestly, it's not a loss of words, but rather a lack of time to sit and think and string the words together in a coherent fashion.
We've had many activities, many field trips, many soccer games/practices. Last week we hit the ground running at full speed after our return from the beach. The weekend, particularly Saturday, was equally busy, with a soccer game in the morning, mowing in the afternoon, and a friend's wedding later in the day.
On the way to the reception, my kids expressed their burn-out to me. "Mom, we're tired of not being at home. Can't we just have one day when we don't have to go anywhere?"
Yep. I get that. I'm a homebody by nature. I like to get out once a week or so, but I hate to see the calendar squares completely filled up. And when I have a week like last week (where we had somewhere to be every single day, and sometimes even multiple activities in a day,) it was a good reminder of why I usually try really hard not to over-schedule our days.
However, that very busy week has come to a close, and we're heading into a new week in which we have nothing on the calendar other than our homeschool co-op this Friday.
Much more my speed. And apparently, my kiddos' too.
