A Case of the Mondays...

Today feeeels like a Monday. It is a dragging day that no one really likes. I tried to fill it up with a bit of fun for Seri and I but it just isn't the same as a Friday! Mondays are slow and enthusiasm is low. I was thinking of starting a new culture today but its pretty clear that Serenity needs a break this week. Doing two cultures back to back and then a week of summer camp has taken its toll and she is not as eager as she was three weeks ago. So this week we shall play it by ear and enjoy a few lazy days. Next week we shall start learning again. Poland is a country she is currently interested in. We have a friend of the family who is from there and has offered to help us out with a few lessons. As Seri would say, "Stay tuned for that."

Today we woke late, drove over to the park to visit with a friend, drove to the library for a craft and Egypt lesson with another friend, got a slurpee, and now we are grilling out some burgers and watching "Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return." Seri got some photos and we had a nice calm day together. We don't get those very often.

Today was a beautiful day to go to the park. It was cloudy and the temp was a low 80's. She has not been able to see her friend from school since the summer began. So us mom's worked it out.

After her park play date we went to our local library for an art history class for the kids. We learned about Egypt and hieroglyphs. Our craft was to make Egyptian collars. We were quite fashionable!

We are now finishing up the day by cooking out some burgers and watching a family movie. I hope everyone who reads this had an equally happy day today. Fight those Monday blues!


  1. Tristen was curious how you got the collar. He also asked if this is in real time, lol.
