A Pentecost of finches.
I think I have a new favorite collective noun - Pentecost of finches. Into my commonplace it goes!
The picture shows eggs laid by a new couple that just moved back into our fern on the porch. They are house finches and return every year to choose a fresh fern to make their home. I am in the middle of a bunch of adventures, so my blogging will slow down for the next month or so.
First, of course, we have the eggs. This is a most important adventure to the dd8. Next, I am busy preparing for the upcoming CLUSA conference. I can't wait to see so many old friends from all over and also to meet some new friends that I've met online. My three sessions this year are - "Multi-Age Homeschool Immersion Group", "The Mason Paradigm: An Introductory Session", and "The Well-Balanced Mind: The Imagination Factor". This, while lots of work, is so much fun for me!
We just returned from my firstborn's graduation from Hillsdale. I won't go on about how strange it is to see that little boy all grown up and done with college. Bittersweet, indeed. But, we are excited to see what is next for him. Maybe I'll write later about the adventures we had in Hillsdale.
