FOR TODAY, March 16, 2009
Outside my window...it looks cloudy, misty, and really dreary. However, earlier this morning as the sun was coming up I could hear the birds chirping! Spring is around the corner!
I am thinking...about what all I need to do today.
I am thankful for ...for all of God's blessings in my life. God loved ME enough to send His Son Jesus to die for my sins. I am so unworthy, yet He loved me enough. I am so blessed, and I am so thankful.
From the learning rooms...today we begin a full week of school...Jimmy is not off any this week, so we will have school all 5 days. We will study the Pacific states in history this week. Leah is learning the letter Q. Olivia has a science and math test today. Julie and Clay are nearing the end of their science course, Botany. We will finish our current read aloud, The Mystery of the Cupboard this week. Next we will read the final book in this series (I cannot think of the name of it).
From the kitchen...I plan to make pancakes and bacon this morning for breakfast. Then I will put chicken on to boil for tonight's poppy seed chicken. Actually, I think I will put the chicken in the crock pot to cook, so I won't have to keep checking on it all morning so it won't boil over!
I am wearing...pajamas!
I am creating...an atmosphere of cheerfulness and happiness today. We have a lot of schoolwork and housework to accomplish today......it all goes better with a happy attitude, smiles, words of praise, and hugs.
I am going...to the half mile track this afternoon to run if the weather is pretty.
I am reading...Managers of Their Schools by Teri Maxwell
I am hoping...that some of my close friends who are going through trials will have answers soon.
I am hearing...Dora the Explorer! I am sitting in the bed with Sam who is watching Dora. I will awaken the other children as soon as I post this.
Around the house...we need to straighten the schoolroom before we begin this morning. We never cleaned it up this weekend after dumping everything in there after co op Friday. Clay had company Friday afternoon. Saturday was busy with running and preparing food for our Family Bible Study Saturday night. The girls also had spend the night company Saturday. Yesterday we had 2 guests for the afternoon between church services.....so I never got around to cleaning up the school room this weekend!
One of my favorite things...coffee in the morning.
A few plans for the rest of the week: Tuesday--piano lessons and shopping for a wedding gift and shower supplies. Wednesday: Kroger, taking a meal to a new mother, and church. Thursday: company after lunch. Friday: company after lunch and then major housecleaning! Saturday: hosting a wedding shower here at home.
Here is picture thought I am sharing...
Sweet Leah in her jeep!
