Hangin’ on by a Thread….

I'm still here....
My posts are sporadic at best. I hate that...
There is so much whirling around "activity wise" here at the home. The King Fish is still traveling all week and coming home on weekends. Some weeks are great and I manage to cruise through... and other weeks like this one, I am hangin' on by a thread. He's home now, and quite frankly we need a date night. Badly. The kind where you actually "go out together as a couple". Not the "lets stay in and watch a movie" kind of date. I'll see if I can work on that.
The boys and I are winding down on the school year. It has been pretty good, and I have about 9 weeks to push through and finish strong. I am really happy with their homeschool co-op that they are participating in. I think they have learned quite a bit in Science and Creative Writing. In history here at home, the boys should have every president memorized from 1-45 by the end of the year. Yay! I am proud of them. They also should have the entire Constitution of the United States memorized this year as well.
Just kidding.
Okay, what else can I share on here? Oh yeah, no sports this spring! Can you believe that? Absolutely none. We asked both boys if they wanted to play baseball and the answer was "Nyet". They need a break and they want to spend time with The King Fish on weekends instead of heading to a ballgame. We left the decision entirely up to them, and it was hard for the King Fish to be hands off and let that decision happen naturally. But he did, and I have to say as the mom who is the taxi driver around here... I am grateful for a break this spring. I think we all are. That doesn't mean we are without sports in 'our life.... we've been watching the NCAA basketball tournament. We all have our brackets. I won last year, we'll see if I can repeat!
Our women's Bible study is such a time of refreshment for me. I love that I am able to host it in my house while The King Fish is out of town. It's been such a blessing to study James. We literally get through about 2-3 verses a night. We go through the concordance and our cross references pulling the meaning and context together. It's amazing how fast the time goes by.
I could write a book.... but I'll stop now.
Here in the south it's going to be a beautiful weekend. I personally am planning to do a bit of shopping! Consignment and thrift store..... wahoo!
What are your plans for the weekend?

Ahhh . . . to not have to drive to any practices . . . sounds divine!

How difficult was it to make the Navigation bar across the top of your blog? Can it be done in Blogger?

Our kids opted for no sports this spring, too...well, except Brianna who'll be playing volleyball when it starts up, but that's nowhere near as bad as baseball with it's gazillion preseason tournaments. I, for one, am very thankful for a season of rest.
