There really is nothing that compares to a sunrise on the beach. Always so magical. And this one, on our final day at the beach, was special because I shared it with my little man.
We are home! It was a long day of driving, but we made it. It felt so good to be home, and to settle into my space again.
I have been busy crafting since I returned home because Mama Collaborative is having a shop update...today! New stock for Easter is available. Take a peek, there are some great items perfect for adding to the Easter basket of the little one in your home.
Spring is in the air around here. The days have been mild, the yard is a mess of mud and puddles, and there is that earthy smell hanging in the air. It's a dreamy time of year, at least for me, as I think about the garden, meals on the back deck, picnics, and evening fires in the fire pit. Oh, Spring, I am so happy to see you again.
Planning has begun for a small summer homeschool block for my little man. He has requested that summer learning be all about dinosaurs. I am game for that, and kind of excited to learn all about dinosaurs with my little man.
More planning, this time summer camp. Life At Nature's Pace will be hosting summer camp days again this summer, two days a week throughout the month of July. Themes for the weeks include bees, birds, butterflies and wild plants. I might be just a little excited about summer camp days.
Seeds!!! Need I say more. I have been gathering and sorting my seeds, getting ready to start planting. I am hoping to get the cold frame planted within the week, and then two weeks after that one of my tunnels. I can't wait to get my hands in the dirt, and I am really looking forward to enjoying fresh food from the backyard again.
The hens are laying in full force again. I collected ten eggs yesterday, not bad when you have fourteen hens.
New chicks will be arriving on our homestead soon, and certain little man is pretty excited about it. You can be sure I will share some pictures.
I am, as always, feeling so very grateful for my life, and the abundance I have been gifted.
Wishing you a magical weekend, my friends.
