Thisbe is so excited about a patch or 6 leaf clovers growing right outside our fence.
While watching the kids play in the Mediterranean this last weekend. I notice that the tide line was full of these tiny little treasures. I even found some as small as a grain of sand.
So it seems that life is returning. We started official school this last week. I’m sort of crawling into it. For my sake and theirs. Hopefully we will be fully operational by November. It’s so nice that I don’t have to worry about and stick with the standard September – June routine. When life give me a three week vacation, I can just go ahead and take it. There is so much to learn on vacation anyway. Here or anywhere.
With this new routine, however, I have been struggling with being tired. (No, I am not pregnant) I’m not used to being “on”, for such long stretches of time. All this last week, come about 10:30am, I’m struggling to stay awake. I do make it past lunch, but come about 1 or 2 during reading time, I’ve opted for a nap instead of a good book. I’m hoping my stamina will build.
On a different note, we had an interesting storm come in. Well, the storm its self was pretty typical, you know the lightning and huge amounts of rain that fill the streets with water kind of storm. The cool thing was that it was approaching so fast that Magnus and I watched those beautiful puffy white clouds in the distance passed over us and revealed their dark, scary underside, in only a couple of minutes. I love a good storm.
