What are everyone’s plans for Mother’s Day? I need to pick up gifts later, and then we’ll be spending part of the day tomorrow with my Mom, and then tomorrow evening with my Mother-in-Law. We normally eat at the ILs on Sundays, but they’ll be out of town then, so we’ll just hang out at home after church instead. 🙂
Our school year is winding down. I am ready for a break, and I know the kids are as well. I renewed our co-op membership today, and I need to register them with our umbrella school soon as well. The 3 oldest will be going to church camp this Summer. Rach will be going to Youth camp for the first time. We’re both pretty excited! Ethan has improved so much in reading this year. He’s still not where I’d like him to be, but I’m very happy with the improvement. Lucas has even picked up word sounds. He’s a smart little boy! He turns 5 in September, so I’m waiting until next year to officially start him in Kindergarten.
Back to Mother’s Day. Mom asked me what I wanted, and I told her that I wanted wide mouth canning jars. Yup. I’m hoping for a great garden this year, and I want jars! I also found a pressure canner that I really want on Amazon. It’s $70, so I’m gonna start saving GCs that I get from Swagbucks. It works on smooth-top stoves, which is what I have. I’m so excited! Jeremy thought I was crazy when I told him I wanted canning jars. Yeah, I’m turning into THAT person. I don’t know what to tell him what I want from the kids, though. Non-gaudy shirts are always nice I guess. Or maybe an herb garden? Hmm
