Joel says I'm not really a quitter, just that I'm lazy. I can take that, even though it seems like that can't possibly be true, maybe it is. Because as we were talking with Hannah today, I was reminded of the whole, "if you're smart, you don't have to work as hard at some things" thing. I'd like to think that I'm a smart lazy person vs a flat out quitter ;-)
Anyway, enough of that. Joel and I went on to talk about the school plans for this coming year. Hannah is ready to get started with class again. I think I have a pathway set up before us that might very well work. I'm planning on doing a Five in a Row style class with the book of Genesis. Taking a chapter at a time reading the same chapter each day of the week and then doing various lessons based on our objectives. It could be awesome or it could be disasterous. We'll see, luckily I'm a lazy smart person, so if it's not working, I'll find a way to do what needs to be done with less effort on my part, as opposed to making something that doesn't work complete itself for the sake of not being a quitter.
In other news, we are enjoying our week off together. I saw something last night that I have not seen in quite some time, Hannah crawled up on Joel's lap and asked to be held. She does this to me all the time. But it really struck me that she had not been doing this with Joel. There could be a plethora of reasons, but instead of pursuing them in my brain, I will just enjoy the sight of such a tender moment and wish that I had my camera with me at the time.
I have a goal for this week and it is to make it down to the DIA and see some art! As well as work on my novel. We've been resting from one another quite long enough. It's time for me to get to work. I'm also planning on pleating one of the two dresses I'm supposed to make for Hannah this summer. It's been a quiet time around her with Lent and Holy week. I think it's time for me to start making some noise!
