It has been so gorgeous here this week, and finally it is getting warm! It was in the 80's yesterday. We finally had to turn the air conditioning on last night. We have a long weekend with Memorial Day, and I am looking forward to that. I would love to sleep in, but knowing me, I will end up getting up at my normal 6:30 even on the weekend! That seems to happen every weekend! Evie is starting to sleep in until 8:00, and some days even past there. I just let her sleep. That is one huge bonus of homeschooling. She doesn't have to be up at the crack of dawn. That extra rest really helps her body to be strong and healthy. Our hummingbirds came back. They completely amaze me. They remember where we live! They will come back every year, and they will hover in front of our window to let us know they are back, and will actually look in the window like, "Okay, I'm back...where's the food?" I then put the feeder out, and they flock to it right away. It amazes me that they fly so far every year, and still come back to our feeder. I just want to marvel at the handiwork of God! We just ordered a butterfly kit, and they are going to send us butterfly larvae so we can watch the butterfly come out of their chrysalis. I have never seen this happen before, and have always wanted to. It is supposed to be a homeschool lesson for Evie, but I think I am just as excited as she is :). Isn't God's creation just amazing?!
