We had such a nice weekend. On Friday, my children and I spent the day at our homeschool co-op, our last day of Friday classes for the year. On Friday evening, we went back for the end of the year showcase. Some kids went onstage and played a musical instrument, recited a poem, or shared another talent. Other kids, mine included, did not perform but did bring projects in for display. All the children seemed excited and proud to share. It was a wonderful way to end the school year. (Not that we are quite done with school for the year, but we are done with the co-op classes.)
Saturday was a beautiful day – perfect for my long run. I covered twelve miles, mostly running, but taking walking breaks here and there as needed. It was the warmest weather I’ve run in so far this year, and that does feel a bit different. When I got home from my run, my husband and children surprised me with some beautiful flowers for Mother’s Day, just a smidge early. Earlier in the day, my husband and son had done some work around the yard while I brought my daughter to gymnastics. My son is such a good little helper. We played together and watched Seabiscuit (seems we like horse movies around here). It was a nice family day.
On Sunday, after church, we headed to my in-laws’ house for lunch, along with two sisters-in-law and their families. I brought my mother-in-law a “bouquet” of parsnips. She likes parsnips, so I like to share the ones we get from our CSA. 🙂 We had a nice lunch together and spent the afternoon visiting and playing games. It was rainy, but that didn’t stop the kids from playing outside most of the afternoon. (Personally, I was glad I’d gotten my 12-miler done on Saturday without the rain!)
I hope you had a nice weekend!
