Bring It On...I Can Take It. Just kidding.

It's been a mentally and physically exhausting week. Already.

Detentions, Spring Fever, fights, foot pain, homework, suspensions, mud, allergies, sinus infections, eyes swollen shut, sunshine, treating vision problems, a messy house, strep throat, online schooling deadlines, more homework, back pain, time-sucking gardening, more snow...TOO BUSY FOR WORDS! (Thankful for the saving graces of Debbi who had some of the kids over for the night. And another day. She always knows when I truly need her help. That's a good friend.)

In all that mess we tried to make time for fun. Emily really wanted to get out and ride her Easter scooter. Those three had so much fun. I was miserable. It was 40* with a whipping head wind beating my tired body. They rode up ahead and every time they came back I put on my happy face and we had fun. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

The next morning it snowed. Mother Nature has a sick sense of humor.
I've been very busy tending to plants, chopping wood and helping a very sick child (who hasn't been really sick in 17 years and is at the worst possible time) finish his online course before it ends tomorrow.

I haven't been taking photos lately, but I'll try to do better. Promise.

I hope your Spring is a little more relaxed.

You are such a good mom. I have so much respect for you.

I just went back and looked at your post about the Otters. It's one of my favorite! And the salmon fishing in Valdez!

I hope everyone feels better very soon.
