Enjoy this peek at our week!
Sugaring season has come to an end this week. The weather was still cooperating, but we are just worn out! Best season we have ever had here on the homestead. We even made enough to sell a little syrup and hard candy we made. Now the homestead hubby is dreaming of buying equipment and starting a real operation in a friend’s wood next year. *smacks forehead* I am just happy to have covered costs and have an ample supply of syrup for our family.
Speaking of family, it has been a rough week around here for the oldest country kid. Puberty and his Asperger’s are not getting along and he is getting into trouble at school due to his behavior. I am sad to say he received a suspension. My heart hurts for him, but I am so flustered on how to parent him anymore. He was supposed to go to my parents over spring break and ended up there a week early because I just needed a break. I am hoping he will return with a more positive attitude towards me, school, and life.
With brother gone, the littlest country kid finally got to be the center of attention in our lives. We took him to a movie, hit some Easter egg hunts, and just enjoyed cuddling and reading books. He is such a joy with his willingness to help around the house. Not to mention he always thinks of others. Heck, he offered to share some of his Easter candy with hubby and I!!!
So what made me smile this week?
Remember to take time out of your busy day to find your own things to make you smile!
