The Friday Five: 5 Random Things

SKOctoberSweaterknitting

Good morning, friends!  This week just zoomed by for me and was a bit of an emotional roller coaster (we are fine, but we received sad news about a few families we care a lot about this week, so our hearts are heavy).

So, this Friday finds me without a formal Five post.  Instead of skipping it, I thought it might be fun to just share five random things today – sort of an end of the week wrap up, but not quite that organized.

So, here are this week’s Friday Five:  5 Random Things …

1.  Max is a reader!  Finally, after months of insisting he couldn’t do it, and with a little bit of gentle but firm encouragement, my son is reading.  It is pretty awesome!  We are reading Garfield comics together and he really loves The Magic Tree House series.  I’m also reading Farmer Boy to him (he’s not quite up to reading it himself just yet) and I love watching his face as he listens to a book that I loved myself as a child.  This reading thing is pretty wonderful!

Hiking with Lucy ::: Weekend Links

It has been unusually busy here at the Fleck household, and that isn’t how I like for things to be.  The full calendar combined with the new sleeping, or lack of sleeping, schedule my toddler has adopted (without even consulting me, mind you, ha ha!) means that I haven’t quite found my new groove for writing in this season of life.

So, if posts are a little haphazard and sometimes I don’t update until the evenings, now you know why: this mama is stealing away whatever scraps of time she can for writing and that often doesn’t happen until after bedtime.

I hope you’re finding some time and space to rest and recharge for the week ahead, friend.  Have a lovely weekend!
