Birthday celebration

From Instagram: When your birthday falls on National Pancake Day, you get IHOP for your birthday breakfast. Happy 11th birthday, Dylan Grace! {She got a hedgehog for her birthday, so she doesn’t have presents from us today, but her sisters put together a fun gift for her!}

After weeks of struggling with my energy level during the day, it felt good to get back into our regular routine this week. I prioritized hydration, and it seems like that may have played a big role in my “bounce back.” Unfortunately, despite the new energy, I hit my first reading slump of the year. Having my energy back means I’m going from morning to night—work, chores, homeschool, dinner, bedtime—and I’m so tired at night that I fall asleep before I finish even a single chapter. Hoping to find a healthy balance in the coming weeks!

I’m also counting down to the end of our Essentials year. Although it’s bittersweet, I’ll be stepping down from tutoring and we won’t be returning to Classical Conversations next year. Despite Challenge having always been my “plan” for my kids, it doesn’t feel like the right fit for our oldest, and the commitment of tutoring is taking its toll. We’ll be doing a different drop-off co-op next year, which means I’ll be able to spread work across five full days instead of trying to cram them into four. I’ll miss our CC community (although I’m thankful to call many of them friends even outside of the group), but I’m also really excited about the change!

What I’m reading: French Kids Eat Everything: How Our Family Moved to France, Cured Picky Eating, Banned Snacking, and Discovered 10 Simple Rules for Raising Happy, Healthy Eaters by Karen Le Billon, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling, and A Curious Beginning (A Veronica Speedwell Mystery) by Deanna Raybourn
