Hello Again

You know the science law….An object in motion stays in motion, and and object at rest stays at rest…(something like that--I paraphrased it).  Well, that's what happened to my blogging.  I have gotten out of the habit of blogging on a daily or almost daily basis, and it has seemed so hard to begin again!  It's not that I don't have thoughts and events that I want to write about.  It's just that I have gotten out of the habit of making time to actually sit down (or stand at the kitchen counter) and type.

I plan to do better.  I like to blog.

I have read two books this week, City of Ember and The People of Sparks, both by Jeanne DuPrau, and I am currently reading two more books, The Prophet of Yonwood by DuPrau and Suck Your Stomach In and Put Some Color On by Shellie Rushing Tomlinson.  That last book is hilarious.  I am laughing out loud while reading!  The DuPrau books are young adult books, but the series (there is also a 4th book) is so interesting.  They are fast reads.

We have two more weeks of school to complete our homeschool year.  Yay!  Let the summer activities begin.  I will be working with the children to compile our summer list.  I already have a master calendar of May-August on the refrigerator.  So far all I have on it is where Olivia will be all summer.  She has several trips planned, and we all needed to know where she would be.  I will be listing our VBS, summer camp, preacher training school, etc.  on there as well.  It will be a busy summer, but very enjoyable and hopefully productive as well.

I am also still reading Little Women, which I listen to a large portion of while driving to pick up Olivia from college.  My summer list will include a list of books to read.  Any suggestions?

***Tip of the Day***
Before your summer begins, walk through your house with a notebook and pen.  In each room jot down everything that needs to be done for cleaning and/or maintenance.  That will give you a starting point when you schedule the time to work on it during the summer months.

  1. I have just read The Hundred-Foot Journey by Richard C. Morais. It is wonderful, especially if you like food and cooking, which I do! It is being made into a movie starring Helen Mirren and being produced by Steven Spielberg. I would recommend it for you, not the kiddos!
