Thursday 21/52

I have some catching up to do. I missed two Sunday's worth of pictures. I have been taking photos, but they were of my class, so I could not post them. So while the kids played outside today I took some photos of the things currently blooming in my yard.

I have been busy trying to plan for summer instead of just letting everyone do whatever. There are chores to be done! And there are some people that need to learn to act nicer. We officially begin family summer camp on Saturday. It is going to be a lot of work for me and I expect a lot of complaining, but hopefully everyone will learn to be more helpful around the house and kinder towards one another.

Singing Saturday 20/52

Much to my delight Johnny Flynn uploaded a new song to youtube this week. It's been 2 years since he uploaded a new video. I think a new album is due out this fall or so.

Quotes 20/52

“Just because I liked something at one point in time doesn’t mean I’ll always like it, or that I have to go on liking it at all points in time as an unthinking act of loyalty to who I am as a person, based solely on who I was as a person. To be loyal to myself is to allow myself to grow and change, and challenge who I am and what I think. The only thing I am for sure is unsure, and this means I’m growing, and not stagnant or shrinking.” 
― Jarod KintzAt even one penny, this book would be overpriced. In fact, free is too expensive, because you'd still waste time by reading it.

Singing Saturday 19/52

Came across this group looking for Johnny Flynn. I am not usually a fan of cover songs. the exception is when the artist takes a song and makes it more their own. I think this is a beautiful rendition-it's very different from the original which is a more folk-style song.

Here is one of their own songs. I believe an album is forthcoming.

Quotes 19/52

The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and wanted wear,
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I marked the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Family Friday 18/52

Today I had my last muffins for moms. It was sweet and cute as these things often are.

You can see that M is still feeling a bit under the weather. Such nice allergy eyes he has. But we went to the dr. today and she said his lungs are much better.

Monday was the boy's last orchestra concert for the year.

Thoughts 18/52

It's been a weird week.

Poor M is still unwell. He had a massive melt-down today. to the point where I had to hold him to keep him from hurting himself or someone else. And as if that wasn't intense enough, it triggered an asthma like attack. That scared him enough to get him to calm down, but it lasted about half an hour. It was a bit scary, to be honest. He's okay now. Once I got him to eat something it helped a lot.

I've got to take the girl back to the orthopedist in the morning. We didn't make it to as many therapy appts as we should have, but she is using her hand now, so I think we will be ok.

My favorite kpop singer left for his mandatory military service this week. It was very strange.

I'm tired.

Scripture 18/52

This is what the Lord says:
“Stand at the crossroads and look;
    ask for the ancient paths,
ask where the good way is, and walk in it,
    and you will find rest for your souls.

--Jer 6:16

Quotes 18/52

Hold fast to dreams,
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird,
That cannot fly.
Langston Hughes, “Dreams”

Family Friday

Been home this week with a sick M. He's wheezing and having severe allergies. So he gets to be on an inhaler. Which is so much fun. It's like giving him 3 double espressos. The weather has been wet and cool, which doesn't help at all. Hopefully it will clear up fast. sigh.
