Hello all, and thank you so much for your words of encouragement over the last few days. It feels awfully good to know that we're all in this crazy boat together.
Speaking of boats, two things:
1) This is my last minute entry to Illustration Friday. The theme is "wrapped". Just a quick, loose little sketch.
This week I've been wrapped up in schooling my fellas with our brand new (brace yourselves) curriculum. It's our first ever real live, honest to goodness, all plotted and planned out curriculum and its been very interesting thus far. It's good, really good, but it's also taking quite a bit of getting used to. I'll probably ramble more about that next week.
The good news is, it's literature based so it fits our loll about and read style very well. We've been both rapt, and wrapped up in, delicious new tales.
2) I also wanted to leave you this week with one more inspiring story. I've been reading up on some of the adventures of Zac Sunderland. At seventeen, he has become the youngest person to circumnavigate the globe.
My first thought, like any worrisome mama, was "Dear God! Alone? On a sail boat? In the great big ocean!??!" My second thought was "Wow, if only I'd that sort of gumption at seventeen! Cripes… if only I had it NOW!"
Imagine. Imagine the places this boy will go… imagine the places he has already been!
Just hearing his story has really made me ask myself lately "What are the things that I'd still like to do and be? What are the passions, dreams and crazy ambitions that I've been sitting on, thinking that I couldn't…. shouldn't? And what if I did them anyway?"
Maybe I just will.
Happy weekend to you all!
