Beyond catching up

Oh my, that was a long stretch. It has been busy here in the past month with settling in in our new home, the end of school year approaching and Warren being away for a while. But what really knocked me out of the scene was a throat infection followed by a sinus infection that took hold of me for almost three weeks. I’ve never felt so much pain in my eyes and I’m so glad no one else in our family caught this bug. Now I can say I’ve fully recovered and am ready to depart to Philadelphia tomorrow with the family for the week. Today was the last day of school for the girls so this is the official “Hello Summer Holidays!”.  Here are a few highlights of the past month from before, between and after being ill:

 

Warren and the girls did an amazing job in planting our vegetable garden. I must post a recent picture!

 

I made not only one, but two baby blankets for two mamas-to-be from Marta's kg class. All other mothers in the kg contributed with squares of fabric that I then pieced together.

Caramba, há quanto tempo! Temos estado super ocupados fazendo da nossa nova casa um lar, com o fim do ano escolar se aproximando e com o Warren forapor quatro dias. Mas o que me tirou da cena mesmo foi uma infecção na garganta seguida por uma sinisite aguda que me pegou por três semanas. Nunca, na minha vida, senti tanta dor nos olhos! Foi uma benção que eningué, mais aqui em casa pegou esse bicho. Posso dizer agora que estou recuperada e pronta para partir para a Filadélfia amanhã com a família por uma semana. Hoje foi o último dia de aula das meninas na escola, enat~so podemos dar a boas vindas ofiaciais às férias de verão. Aqui vão alguns dos melhores momentos do mês antes, entre e depois de ficar doente.
