Oh, hey. Here's a little #fridayintroductions for you. Because it's been raining for two weeks and our shenanigans have been stalled for the time being. Hi, I'm Nichole and here is a little about me and my page:
1. The mom of two great kids, the #luckeywanderers. 
2. been married to my guy for 10 years (whoa!). 3. Iowa born and raised, living in the south. (Thanks to my guy's job).
4. I'm obsessed with everything the lovely @danyelle.woods makes. 
5. Coffee. 
6. I swim. Lots. I'm training for a 10 mile river swim in the fall. I mostly swim while my kids have their swim lessons.
7. Reluctant homeschooler turned obsessed homeschooler. 
8. I once worked as an ocean life guard in college. That was awesome. 
9. I've recently discovered Audible. Why has it taken me this long? Audio Books make treadmill time so much more bearable. 
10. We turned our van into a DIY campervan. I lovingly call it my #magiccampervan.  It's chugging along well, but getting up in mileage and we may have to find our next option soon. Suggestions? Drop a comment. .

#throwbackthursday to eclipse dancing under the midday moon. This is not the best photo of the eclipse but it has a great deal of meaning to me. We camped in a field of the nicest family farm, met people from all over the world, and howled at the moon at the moment of totality. It was a wild rumpus for us from beginning to end. It is a memory that I will forever cherish. Traveling solo with my kids is never easy, despite what the photos show, however I will never, ever, regret choosing to say yes and be brave. .

Sometimes, it rains all day and we do school at the donut shop. Because we homeschool, and because donuts make everything better. .

"Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark. In the hopeless swamps of the not quite, the not yet, and the not at all, do not let the hero in your soul perish and leave only frustration for the life you deserved, but never have been able to reach. The world you desire can be won, it exists, it is real, it is possible, it is yours." - Ayn Rand

Monday, we're coming for you. We've had 2 weeks of wonky rhythms, because, shenanigans. This week we will regain our focus. Because, the kids have already started a countdown to what's next on the adventure agenda, and we need to finish our term before we head out. Make it a great week. .

Saturday swim meet boogie. Crazy fast swim meet, with all 6 of my events done within two hours. (200 back, 100 Breast, 50 fly, 200 IM, 100 back, 1000 free). High point award was a box of chocolates, which the kids loved. I'm done, good night. πŸ˜‚

Friday got me like....
.
.
.
#fieldtripfriday took us to @midamericamuseum with our homeschool group. I had Batman and Owlette with me today, because no fieldtrip is complete without costumes. So, if you saw me walking around wearing my son's batman mask and daughter's owlette cape, sorry. What a fantastic day of science! Watch for a highlighted story soon of our shenanigans.

Its finally stopped raining, and warmed up a bit. When we lived in Iowa l, I had a huge garden, that was woven into our landscape. We now live 3, or 4, zones farther south and I'm still struggling to figure out the gardening seasons. I still hope to someday have an entire landscape of edible plants.  Step 1: clean up everything I left off last August when we took off for adventures. .

A surprise detour on our roadtrip. The excited screams started as soon as we were in sight of this over 20 foot tall Bumblebee. Did you know there are two transformer statues in Stillwater, OK? Optimus Prime and Bumblebee stand guard on opposite sides of the city, each at an auto body shop. Worth the detour? Yes. My answer is always yes. .

Workout 2: 3200 yard swim while my kids had swim lessons. Little girl goes first while big brother plays with some friends who are also waiting. Then, little girl waits while big brother has lessons. She usually sits in the gutter at the end of my lane and throws my paddles and pull buoy at me. But you know what, it makes me smile every time. I am grateful for these days. To live by example and find ways to get it done. I am so grateful to the club team coaches for sparing me a lane, so I can swim instead of sit on the bleachers. .

Wouldn't you like to wake up next to a pilfered purple penguin? The #luckeywanderers and I took a jaunt to Oklahoma City for some slightly different shenanigans at the end of the week. I will share more in an upcoming post, but here is a teaser. @21chotels are an incredible experience. And the one in OKC is not to be missed. Industrial motifs, a modern art museum, and a Nespresso machine in the room. Perfection. Except for the fact that little girl asked me to sleep on the couch. πŸ˜‚
