It’s finally warmed up here in Tampa. And by warm, I mean we skipped spring and its scorching outside.
Our family has had a tough few weeks with battling a stomach bug that hit every person in the house…landing me in the hospital with the most excruciating migraine I’ve ever had. We have also been having some seasonal allergy issues. I’ve never had allergy problems until now. Apparently, the pollen here is insane. There is also a bunch of oak in the area. Local honey has helped a bit but I’m afraid we have had to resort to over the counter stuff when it gets unbearable. Please let me know in the comments if you have any natural remedies for season allergies!
So what do we do all day? What have these unschoolers been up to? Glad you asked!
Desmond has been very interested in the human body lately. He mainly wants to see what the inside of our bodies looks like. I’ll often show him diagrams of the muscular system and skeletal system. He also likes looking at pictures of human hearts. Future surgeon? Maybe.. :)
So here’s what we have been up to…
We picked loquats. A lot of them.
We picked strawberries.
We made strawberry shortcake.
We went to the beach
We went to robotics week at MOSI
We touched starfish and anemones at the aquarium.
We picked blueberries.
And we baked blueberry muffins! Stay tuned for recipe.
Besides all of the activities we have done, March was also a month of growth and connection for our family. Dad and I have been reading Simplicity Parenting by Kim John Payne, and it has changed our life. Even before we started the book, there was a shift in our perspective that has been slowly taking place since we moved from Miami. It’s different here. We feel like we belong here and it’s been wonderful.
So we are on a mission to simplify every aspect of our lives. We dumped a bunch of stuff that we don’t need and it feels great.
What did you all do in the month of March?
