It’s been a little over a month since my last post.
Forgive me, I’ve been hibernating.
The late spring and summer months are the busiest times of the year for us on the farm. However, for me as a teacher, I have just completed my busiest time of the year–the Forensics season.
Within the past month-and-a-half I have been hauling my speech & debate students all over the state of Kansas. We have been to eight (8) tournaments. Eight tournaments!
Three (3) of those tournaments were during the school week. Tournaments during the week mean leaving school early, eating food on the go from wherever you can find it, and getting home very late.
The other five (5) tournaments that we competed in were on Saturdays. Saturday tournaments mean leaving school earlier than when you get up during the school week, eating food on the go from wherever you can find it, and returning home completely exhausted.
As a result, my sacred Saturdays that I normally use to rest during the year just haven’t been an option. So, I’ve had to use other times during the week to get caught up on my rest. And during those times, I’ve been hibernating.
I have been able to shoot some pictures before going into my hibernation periods.
It’s not like I’ve missed Spring this year completely.
I’ve just been so busy and so tired I haven’t posted anything.
We’ll call it a blog hiatus of sorts.
But not to worry.
My “busiest” season as a teacher has come to an end and now I’m getting ready for end-of-the-year projects and exams.
And then my busiest time as a farm wife–wheat harvest– will begin.
I will be helping make meal deliveries, serving as the parts go-getter, being an extra driver, working as a part-time babysitter, and the one documenting our harvest again (and sharing it all on the blog).
Maybe I should bank up my rest now!
