Since it has finally started to feel like spring 'round these parts, I had the urge to rearrange a couple bookshelves and do some cleaning. I decided to move one of my taller bookshelves (which was in the living room) into the schoolroom and bring the another bookshelf into the living room to take its place.
In the middle of my re-arranging (mind you, I had books on the floor, table, furniture...everywhere!) Xavier came downstairs jumping up and down, holding onto his hand, crying. He had cut his thumb while using his pocket knife. I am not one to hurry to the emergency room...I prefer to take care of as much as we can at home...but this slice in his thumb was bleeding so much that I could not see how deep it truly was. I couldn't get a hold of Chris so I called my mom to get her take on it. She thought I should take him to the ER. So, off we went. Thankfully, the Dr. was nice and X didn't have to get stitches. They used some medical adhesive and steri-strips. He is still wearing them as it heals. He can continue to play his banjo as it heals too, which is a great relief! :)
Outside, things are muddy and gray. Around the house looks terribly drab and I am looking forward to blooming flowers, green grass, and budding trees! I am quite excited to say that I have been able to begin hanging clothes out on the line (which, if you have followed my blog for any length of time, you know I love!)...
Chris and the boys worked on Saturday to clean up around the woodstove, woodshed and yard...
Jaxson snuck in a little play time while working ;)....
We had a lovely Resurrection Day. We went to Sunrise Service at our church at 7am, had breakfast there and then attended Service at regular time. We came home for a simple lunch and naps. We spent the evening at Chris's sister's house for a time of supper and fellowship. :)
We took today off from schoolwork so the boys could have a sleepover at their cousin's house. I went and picked them up earlier, right before lunch. They are home now, playing Legos. Madelyn is down at the meat market helping her Pa and Ma. I have been keeping busy sweeping floors, hanging loads of laundry out, crocheting, cleaning and more...there's more to do so I should get off of this computer and get to it! :)
Have you begun spring cleaning?
Have a great day!
