Hello my friends, how are you? Have you had a nice week? This week has ben uneventful and still lots has happened if that makes any sense at all. Little Buddy has finished his school year and did so with a great report card. It has been a tough year in so many ways for him, and still at the end of the year his teachers did not understand his unique learning abilities, but we got through it and landed on a successful note.
We went to the beach on Friday morning as a treat even though he told me it is against the law to go to the beach when it isn't Saturday or Sunday. I had to explain to him that those were the only days we were able to go because of school and gardening club, and that the beach is available everyday. Well almost that is. We drove to our favorite north beach on Honeymoon Island in Dunedin Florida to find it was closed for refurbishing. This beach has the easiest access for us. So we drove to the main beach and got all of our things out and organized and while walking towards the beach saw this beautiful rainbow. Two seconds later it started to rain and we just barely made it back to the car before the Heavens broke open. We waited a bit but the rain looked like it was there to stay for a while so we drove home. Not a fun way to celebrate no more third grade!
At home we got a haircut, after going to get one last weekend with Dad. I swear they barely cut it and I had to do the whole thing over again. Not my idea of fun. After a shower and a shampoo we got to work decluttering Little Buddy's room and clothes, my clothes and some major rearranging of things in my bedroom. I won't show you all the bags of things ready to donate but there are quite a few. Good to get things done and Little Buddy now has some room in his room for potential birthday presents, he will be 10 in just a couple of weeks!
Later in the day we went up to visit my friend Lynda for dinner. Her neighbor is a locksmith and he was able to unlock Little Buddy's bank that had been stuck because a certain boy I know had the door open and pushed a bunch of keys changing the passcode to something we did not know what it was. He has been having fun counting his money and placing it in the slots for the vault all morning. Lets just say the Tooth Fairy has apparently been very nice to this boy.
I had my first Zoom conference on Wednesday. I don't have a camera on my computer so I was a black screen at the top of the screen, like many I might add. I also pretended my microphone wasn't working because I was knitting during the conference and frankly did not want to do the tedious group session with a screen that was black. It was a great conference and I knit 3/4 of a sleeve on my sweater. Still it made me laugh as those on the Zoom call who had their cameras on seemed to not mind we were all able to see their dirty countertops, or even one woman who was lifting weights during the conference. Of course I was knitting but they didn't see me knitting!!!!! I have to have 24 hours of continuing education every 2 years for my professional license and 12 of it has to be live. 18 more to go!
Today is a low key day. I have a private patient and then the day is mine to putter around the house and continue to get things done here and there. The boys are always at my side no matter where I am.
And just in case you missed it I will say it again, this precious boy of mine is going to be 10 soon, where has the time gone? Those eyelashes and freckles, well you know how I feel about them, I could just eat him up! We both need a break from all the stress of school. He starts camp on Monday with the kids he goes to gardening club with. It will be just enough to keep him busy but will be a break from all the school stress. We will still do workbooks and will read to keep his brain active but we won't be stressing at all as we take a break and prepare for 4th grade. Fourth grade, can you even imagine?
Have a wonderful weekend.
