Outside my window...the yard is mowed and edges trimmed. Its looks nice. And the neighbor's new miniature pincher is running, hopping, and yipping, hoping to get my children's attention.
I am thinking...and praying about some family issues. I have two brothers and two sisters, in-laws, nieces and nephews. And when one of them is going thru something or hurting...we all hurt :(
I am thankful for...quiet time. Keira is the only one who still takes a nap, but I have re-instated the quiet time rule for an hour after lunch. Full time, stay- at-home mommies have to have a break sometime!
From the learning rooms...well, I found Starfall, an online phonics program that I think would work great for Logan this year. I still need to order 3rd grade Rod & Staff workbooks for Ashleigh.
In the kitchen....homemade chicken fried rice and crab rangoon!
I am wearing...denim shorts, and gray summer shirt
I am creating...an online virtual bulletin board.
I am going...to sort thru some stuff from our garage sale. Have several things I can sell online. I love our community facebook garage sale group page.
I am reading...To Win Her Heart, by Karen Witmeyer
I am hoping...to get some writing time in this week. Still working on a book project.
I am hearing...my two maids: Wilma Washing Machine and Dora Dryer working hard :)
Around the house...the kids did their chores this morning. I still haven't made my bed! And the study is a mess from trying to sort and organize.
One of my favorite things...new magazines. I love All You, Better Homes & Gardens, Country Living, Rachael Ray,....
A few plans for the rest of the week...still working with the kids on learning new chores and responsibilities, a trip to the library to get their last prize for summer reading, a dentist appt for me, a rare Saturday with Dad home.
Here is a picture thought I am sharing…the beautiful Sturdevant Acres Bed & Breakfast where we had our MOPS steering team retreat. How I would love to sit on that porch every day!
