Read other Simple Women Daybooks at Peggy's site: The Simple Woman's Daybook
For today - Sept 21st 2009 -
Outside my window...the western sky is turning dark. The guy on the radio is warning of storms & hail.
I am thinking...how it has been just over a month since my last blog post! And what a busy month it has been.
From the learning rooms...school has been under-way since just after Labor Day. Ashleigh is loving phonics & reading. She is taking cooking, Five in a Row, and Princess in Training classes with our co-op group.
Logan stays busy with "pre-school". I keep a variety of simple activities for him to do while Ashleigh does hers. We also do some during his nap.
I am thankful for...all the help my mom has been these past two weeks. And my in-laws the two weeks before that. We couldn't have done this past month without them :)
From the kitchen...a pot of potato soup is simmering on the stove for supper. For lunch I enjoyed a bowl of the Pioneer Woman's Delicious Hominy Casserole.
I am wearing...gray shorts and a pink Sonic Flood t-shirt, that has dried baby spit on the shoulder ;)
I am reading...actually just finally finsihed the Nicholas Spark's paperback "The Lucky One".
I am hoping...that all works out for my mom to move down here! It would be the very first time I would have family living in the same town....and the kids would grow up getting to see a grandparent.
I am creating...this week's dinner menu and weekly plan.
I am praying...for God to open the doors for my family that lead to His will and not my own.
Around the house...kids are having naptime/quiet-time. My mom is brewing some hot tea. Laundry is done for the day. Schoolbooks are put away.
One of my favorite things...when my new precious baby girl snuggles in to my shoulder.
A few plans for the rest of the week...driving my mom halfway back home, will meet and have lunch with my brother before she goes back with him. Then the rest of my week will be simply adjusting to flying solo with 2 kids and a baby!
Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you... Here SHE is: our new baby!!
