Well, do you like it?
I am still rearranging my sidebar items....but this was the easiest blog background change ever! It literally took 20 seconds, just like the LeeLou site says. And I did not lose one single widget!
This week has been hard! Mondays are always difficult, because we have to adjust to school after the weekend, and we have to leave the house at 1:40 for piano lessons. Yesterday was hard too, because I overslept (still trying to get used to the time change), and I did not get to run before we started school. I ran after lunch, and we were scurrying around trying to leave at 2:45 for cross country practice. We were a few minutes late for practice, and I was unable to prepare our supper before we left. We arrived home a little after 6:00, and I had to go to Plan B for supper. Chicken tacos. After a night of cleaning the kitchen, watching American Idol while folding a ton of clean clothes, and getting the children to bed, I finally got a shower at 11:00 P.M.
I determined that today would be better! I got up when my alarm clock went off at 5:20, and I spent some time reading encouraging Scriptures and praying. I adjusted my attitude. I mentally listed many, many things that I was thankful for, and then I ran 5 miles. This was a much better start to my day! We had a really productive school day, and we are currently reading another fabulous book, Across Five Aprils.
As we are approaching the end of our school year (we will finish on the last Friday in May), I am already thinking about next year. What will I change? What will stay the same? I plan to post about my curriculum decisions after I finalize them.
Julie is cooking our supper tonight, and I am really thankful for the good day we have had.
