FOR TODAY – Monday, June 21, 2010

Outside my window… is a vegetable garden that is finally growing.

I am thinking… about the installation of the heat pump that will be happening this week.

I am thankful for… God’s provision in all things.

From the learning rooms… we are winding down our school year and eagerly awaiting books for next year (they should be here any day now).

From the kitchen… I am smelling the makings of chicken soup and I am surprised that we will get four meals out of two cooked chickens.

I am wearing… my everyday clothes.

I am creating… a mess. We are going through all of our homeschool materials and purging and organizing for next year.

I am reading… several books right now and enjoying all of them.

I am hoping… that our new homeschool materials get here soon because I am so excited.

I am hearing… Horton Hears a Who

Around the house… we are rearranging everything and trying to find creative ways to organize the stuff of 7 people.

One of my favorite things… watching the children grow up.

A few plans for the rest of the week… include sorting the rest of the homeschool materials and organizing the cabinets in the school room.

Here are two picture thoughts I am sharing…

Outside my window… are newly tilled garden beds, ready for planting.

I am thinking… about a project that I am working on today and hoping to get it finished.

I am thankful for… a husband who loves me and a family who puts up with me.

From the learning rooms… we are winding down school and getting ready for a little break.

From the kitchen… I am thinking about the chicken soup that we are having for dinner tonight.

I am wearing… my everyday clothes.

I am creating… a work of art with my computer.

I am going… to be inside all week if the weather does not warm up.

I am reading… several books which I will be writing reviews for very soon.

I am hoping… to finish planting the garden this week..

I am hearing… the gurgle of the fish tank, the hum of three computers, the chatter of children, and the occasional barking of a dog.

Around the house… are little piles of messes that need to be dealt with.

One of my favorite things… is listening to worship music with head phones on. I rediscovered this last night as I was working on an article.

A few plans for the rest of the week include… tying some loose ends with school for this year.

Here is picture for thought I am sharing…

Outside my window… it is dreadfully dark and dreary.

I am thinking… the muffins I will be making for breakfast.

I am thankful for… my family.

From the learning rooms… I am still pondering how amazing our school day was yesterday.

From the kitchen… I wish that I was smelling coffee brewing because I really need it to wake up.

I am wearing… my pajamas, because I wanted to post this before I started my day and forgot.

I am creating… some fun photos of circles for a post I am doing on Friday.

I am going… to stay home today and plan my errands for tomorrow when I hope it is not raining.

I am reading… Born On A Blue Day, Pen On Fire, Managing Their Schools, Educating The Whole Hearted Child, and Henry Huggins (if we can find it).

I am hoping… to have another successful day homeschooling.

I am hearing… the cars driving by on the rainy, slick  roads.

Around the house… we are missing the baby gate because it finally broke.

One of my favorite things… snuggling with my kids everyday.

A few plans for the rest of the week… I want to take all the kids on the bus over to visit Nana this week.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing this week

This picture was taken in October after a family walk at the park. The kids were all loading into the van and the sky seemed to just open up. I grabbed the camera and snapped up some pictures.
