Lessons Update for March 28th

Today we got a late start because of a hectic morning and our rhythm being thrown off by important phone calls etc...

However we did well, especially considering it is a bonus day for us as we usually dont do home lessons on Tuesdays. Because of the morning groove being thrown off we decided to wait until after Dad left from his lunch visit to start our lessons. The kids had been outside playing and then had some lunch, so it felt as though we were in a good part of our day to begin. Similar to after breakfast. I have to giggle because it reminds me of double-dutch, you have to stand there for a minute and get the right rhythm going before jumping in, if you get it right, your off and running, if not the rope hits you in the face and your falling down onto concrete. LOL

We also went to get our veggies from our CSA Farm today, only to realize it isnt our week. We recently went to every other week, and I am too flakey to remember we were just there last week. I think we need to go back to every week, we miss it too much. We did at least get to see what lookedlike a Black Australorp Chicken which is one of the breeds we have, and the donkeys did come by the car to say hello and thanks for coming by.
