I am always up for some continuing and self-education and the past week has been filled with it around our house…for mom and the kids!
Another two weeks have flown by, mostly because I was in Florida for 6 days during that time hanging out with all my BEECH Retreat buddies! I was greeted at the airport by my friend Tricia from Hodgepodge..spent the whole weekend rooming with her, attending sessions with her, and helping her review an awesome sponsored car from Kia! (You can read her review on her blog: Kia Optima.)
While I was doing that, Mr. B continued his schoolwork and I have a nice stack of finished assignments to read and enjoy. It may take me a few days to get through them all…notebook pages, maps, summaries, math to look at, and art projects to view. So nice to be able to leave him for a few days and have him just continue on as normal.
Mr. B was disappointed again this semester when he found out that the computer classes he wanted to take at the community college were all full…again. So, what did he do? He decided self-education was the way to go using online sources! Way to go Mr. B! Since I know nothing about this topic, he consulted his older brother who has completed these courses at college and found out the best way to go about it. Why doesn’t this surprise me? Mr. B has always been encouraged to follow his interests and this is just another example of how he has matured as a self-educator. When the time comes to take these courses at the community college, he will be that much more ahead.
The biggest thing around here is Amanda leaving on Sunday for Bolivia. She has finished her packing and now all that awaits is a long family day tomorrow with all of us here at the house and then a drive to San Francisco to board her plane. Someone tell me that six months will go by fast….
While I was in Florida I was able to make a whirlwind tour of the swamps and mangroves around Naples, Florida. I think I added about twenty birds to my life list.
So there you have it in a nutshell….two weeks, lots of learning for all of us here at the Harmony Art Mom house.
