Time Out for Mommy!

Our children are with me for most of their waking life.....homeschooling affords me this awesome benefit. However, there are the special occasions when I am in need of a time out for a grown up MEday!
This Sunday was MY day for a field trip!  I went into NYC (one benefit to living an hour from a major city, but living in the country...best of both worlds)  with a friend of mine for a book signing of a wonderful woman, Amy Atlas ofAmy Atlas Events (out of NYC).  She has written a book that, for me, is inspiring!  Besides the book signing, my gal pal and I were able to take in some sights that I will admit, I have never seen up close and personal...A side of NYC that I don't frequent...Union Square!











This was made from Sand!





Amy's Mom!  Such a sweet lady!

Book signing at Fishs Eddy!  Love this store!
The weather was mid 60's and sunny!  We ate a late lunch at The Blue Water Grill - a party for the pallet!

Chilly Picnic - overcome, adapt and improvise

Beginning of the week they forecasted 65 and sunny for today...of course being a weatherman (or woman) is the best of jobs, you can be wrong all the time and still keep your job!  LOL....today ended up being 45 and windy, with partial sun.  The wind was whipping good and I am sure brought the temps down considerably.  We had planned a little home school picnic/bbq at a local lake that has a little beach on it. There were originally 4 families coming, last minute one of the families got sick so there were 3 of us.  We got there early to "set up" and our clan lasted 2 hours!   IT was cold, but we were bundled up and felt fine.  The kids were running and playing in the sandbox and playground (we did not even get near the lake)







Notice my rocks on the table...LOL


This is Zachary right after he fell on the playground from pretty high up and got the wind knocked out of him. He was pretty scared and kept asking if he was going to die from it...I said Not Today honey, not today...

Thankf…
