Looking for the Sunshine...

We are honestly very spoiled around here. We have the sun shining the majority of the winter and it's really felt like spring lately! However, the past two days have been overcast, drizzly and a bit on the colder side. I am very much looking forward to the return of the sun, especially since it means the kids can spend more time playing outside. They are having a Nature/History Homeschool Day, but it's all inside. Elyssia is impatiently waiting for "many things", one of which is the Chronicles of Narnia audio cds. I told her that she could put in her order to borrow them again this month, but apparently it's taking too long:))).

Some friends in town called the other day and asked Scott to pick up something on his next trip in. It turned out to be Hot Cross Buns from a popular bakery in Saskatoon. Apparently they are sold out each day before noon, due to an amazing reputation. We don't spend much time in the city, which means we had never encountered this wonderful bakery. Scott and the kids had no problem polishing most of them off over the past couple days. I've enjoyed the smells when they toast them, but I'll admit that I didn't eat any. I've been avoiding most bread the past couple weeks, which is kind of unfortunate timing, but necessary for my digestive system right now. Looking forward to eating normally again in the next week or so:).

The school year has flown by fairly quickly this year, in spite of different distractions. The kids have less than a quarter of their work to complete and we look forward to lots of sunny play days in May! That's about it for now. Looking forward to sharing more interesting posts in the not too distant future:).
