Woke up to a wonderfully clean out and quiet. Unlike most days was up before any kids. Jimmy was already gone to work so I cracked open the blinds and poured myself a cup of coffee. Had some time to read NPR, BBC and Al Jazeera. Yes, I am a news snob and read the news from the best sources. Music played softly in the background while I read and enjoyed the sun fully rising. As soon as the kids starting coming to we started opening the windows and putting the ceiling fans on. Life is always good when it's not 90 degrees in the house.
Hezzie had a great visit with his teacher. She is amazing and real. She includes his younger siblings in her thoughts and brought balloons yesterday. It was like a party with these orange things floating through the air and the kids laughing...louder and louder and louder.
When Jimmy got home we took Maggie and Hezzie to the library. It was a Cesar Chavez celebration that I say, did not meet my expectations. It was a story, a less than informative slide show and a worksheet. Okay...but, I did get some good info on volunteering in the summer with the kids program...go me. The kids ended up playing with puzzles and games.
We headed down to the community garden afterwards. Jimmy dig out this huge weed whose root was like a small tree...no joke. (note: that is not even the whole root). He went back home with all the kids and I stayed and did more weeding and watering. I also did a video.
On my walk home I took a wonderful picture of what grows randomly. Not sure if this is part of the house or the church in borders.
