1. Apricots are in season. They are one of my favorite fruits. Their season doesn't seem to last long, and they taste awful out of season, so I try to maximize the month or so that they are in their prime.
2. Finishing the Superstition Mountain trilogy with the boys. It was fantastic. If you have elementary school aged kids, I highly recommend it. Mystery, adventure, treasure hunting, suspense, peril. It has a little bit of everything!
3. Chocolate herbal coffee. It doesn't have the bitterness of coffee. It's more like a tea. But it kind of tastes like chocolate coffee. I sampled it at the Earth Day festival in April, and promptly ordered myself a case.
4. Watching Cort practice his breakdance moves. I ordered him a used copy of How to Breakdance 1 and he watches it over and over and practices the moves. It's pretty cute.
5. Getting a grant to cover occupational therapy for one of my boys. The school was providing it to work on fine motor skills for a while, but then decided there had been enough improvement that it was no longer needed. I felt like he could use a bit more, but our insurance doesn't cover it, and at up to $200 a session it wasn't in our budget. I applied for a medical grant through UnitedHealth for kids under 16 with private insurance that doesn't cover certain therapies. When I got the email that we had received the grant, it brought tears of gratitude and relief to my eyes. If you have a child that could benefit from a medical grant, you can go read about the process and qualifications HERE. And feel free to email me directly if you have questions.
Readers, what are your little happies this week?
