FOR TODAY... March 8, 2010
Outside my window...overcast. Cold. Lots of weeds and a couple red wagons sitting on the back patio.
I am thinking...about babies.
I am thankful for... my God.
I am wearing... tennies, blue workout pants and a hot-pink t-shirt. Notice a pattern?
I am remembering...our dating years.
I am going... to really try to eat better this week.
Some plans for the rest of the week...Conman's gymnastics tomorrow and stop by his eye Dr. because his glasses broke, again. Quick library stop for one science book. Baby shower on Saturday, special church presentation on Sunday.
I am currently reading... Laying Down the Rails by Sonya Shafer, The Bible, The Original Homeschooling Series, Tenth Circle by Jodi Piccoult, Kaleidoscope by Patsy Clairmont, More Charlotte Mason Education by Catherine Levison.
I am hoping... for that sun again. Yucky weather makes me feel yucky.
On my mind...my brother.
From the learning room....starting Conman's new science today. I decided against combining him and Blakester with Apologia for right now. Blakester really enjoys doing it on his own and I'm not sure it will appeal to Conman at this age. This year, 4Th grade, was a really good time to start with Blakester, so I'm going to hold off another year or so for Conman. We're going to start 106 Days of Creation from Simply Charlotte Mason. It will give him a good overview for upcoming studies.
Noticing that...I've not taken very good care of myself lately.
Pondering these words... I try to teach the children to think.
I am creating...a simple home.
I am hearing...Conman chomping on gum while watching cartoons.
From the kitchen... Lulu is cooking eggs and sausage for her and her brother. Country-fried steak with mashed potatoes and cooked carrots for dinner. Maybe a dessert, I'm not sure yet..
Around the house... Bob the lizard has been moved into a new home. Blakester spent time yesterday cleaning out an aquarium we inherited and settled Bob into it. I had to go buy itty, bitty crickets from the pet store for him.
One of my favorite things...Disneyland.
From my picture journal... another random picture from my computer stash.
This is my lovely niece Delaney Grace. She's about 4 1/2 in this picture. Her 7Th birthday is tomorrow. Happy Birthday, Delaney!!! Love ya!!
Have a wonderful day~
