Evan and I drove out to Farmington this past weekend to meet up with some homeschoolers. We thought we would connect with some of the community ahead of time so that we can find some new friends and activities as we begin our homeschooling journey next fall. We also spent the night in our new home. There was plenty of daydreaming and planning. We should close on the house by the middle of June. On Saturday morning we woke and headed into town where we found that the farmer's market is not only of Friday mornings but Saturday mornings. Mark was in a 5k road race to benefit his school and Evan and I attended the yardsale that was also to help the school. It is beginning to feel like we can see the light at the end of this very long tunnel.
Which sorta means that the motivation to work on what is here at home is not there. I just have to keep in mind that all the work, here and there, gets us where we need to go. So in that spirit I must use the Independence Days challenge to keep me focused.

Want not: I have a list of things I am looking for this yard sale season. Among them winter clothes for the wee one. I found a pair of snow pants for a 1$ at the Goodwill. I found a Simplicity pattern for 10cents to make him PJ's. I found more canning jars at the yard sale.
