Wild Week

What a crazy week!

We held a screening of the movie, FRESH, on Sunday for a few farmer and eco-activist friends (and our collective 19 bajillion children). Watching the movie was preaching to the choir, so to speak, but I hope that the community building effort was successful.
Monday I thought we might drive up to the mountains and hike up Humpback Rocks. Mark was not enthused. Then it started raining which dampened my spirits and we wound up spending the day in various reclining postures reading, surfing or watching movies. It was a much needed mental health day.
Tuesday was back to work for Mark and back to ObX for the rest of us. The kids had a blast in their classes and I love the class I am teaching. I thought I would go to work after ObX but by the time we finally exited, it was after 3pm and I just didn’t have anything left. We came home.
Today is Wednesday and we spent the morning moving a bit slowly and doing some school work. I took the kids to lunch in Suffolk, walked to the bank and the Suffolk Center for Cultural Arts where I signed them up for the Homeschool Initiative which begins next week. So, of course, a migraine aura set in on the walk back to the van. Talk about driving blind. Seriously.
Thursday the children are going on a very exciting field trip to the Surry Nuclear Power Station which was set up by another homeschooling mom.
Friday is a Suffolk teen event.
Saturday? I’m staying in bed. All. Day. Long.

    Watching FRESH with fellow farmers and eco-activists was great! Thank you for putting that together. Preaching to the choir isn't always bad; sometimes the choir needs a little inspiration.
