Mostly Offline, Spring, TKD

I haven't been interested in posting much lately. I guess I just haven't been as comfortable being online for all to see. I originally set up this blog for family and other unschoolers to read, but the thought of less than savory people from my past reading it kind of creeps me out a little. I considered making it private, so family could still see it, but I want to stay in contact with other unschoolers too (though this really isn't all that much contact!). So, I have just been quiet lately, slowly getting over my issues! :-)

Though we had a seriously cold week or so, spring is here for sure. The cold snap, as usual, came after my peach tree bloomed. Hopefully it will be ok. This is a butterfly visiting my new lavender that my mom got for me. I have been teasing her because the lavender that I planted at her house when I lived there is *huge* and beautiful. I kept whining that I missed it, so she got me 2 replacements! Yay!

Richard tests today for his 3rd degree black belt. He is a little nervous, but I am sure that he will do great. It is hard to believe that he has been in TKD for this long. I will take pictures at the ceremony and try to post them this weekend. Pictures never do him justice though, you can't really tell in pictures that he is a 5'11" 13 year old! Sometimes I think he gets self conscious about always being told how tall he is, but I am so short that I really see his height as a blessing. I got elbowed in the head in Hastings one day by some tall woman, she didn't even see me! I tell Richard to be proud of his height, but also to look out for us short people!

i know what you mean- it is hard to balance being private and being open at the same time. And then there are the people who say "do you have to blog about that".....
