Outside my window…the sprinkler is batting the windowpanes with a soft, steady beat. Our grass is pretty pathetic. I’m not sure this little sprinkler will do much good. God could certainly do better if He’d only send some rain our way.
I am thinking…it has been way too long since I’ve blogged. I need this.
I am thankful…for the end of bedrest. Yes, we learned humility and yes, we were filled with grace, but life is so much better now that I’m able to participate in all the little rituals of the day (although ironically, I am sitting on the couch writing this).
From the learning rooms…school officially began this week. We’re starting off light with a week of Five in a Row. Next week, we’ll begin walking down the Alphabet Path. Come back often throughout the year to walk with us.
In the kitchen…Beef Burgundy. It smells divine.
I am wearing…a pink tank top and jean shorts. And they’re not maternity clothes! Yea!
I am creating…our curriculum. I’m just never satisified with anything. So I add a little here and a little there. It’s a work of art with lots of fine tuning, I suppose.
I am going…to finally see our friends again this week! Oh how I’ve missed my friend and Joseph and William have missed theirs. It will be a celebration of sorts to see one another again. A few miles away can feel like a million when you’re unable to get together.
I am wondering…what is it about a pair of oversized boots that is so incredibly entertaining?
I am reading…Educating the Whole Hearted Child by Sally and Clay Clarkson.
I am hoping…that Joseph’s Art Show is everything he imagines it will be. He’s worked so hard to prepare so many pieces of art! (I promise to share some Art Show pictures soon!)
I am looking forward to…lots of family this weekend. And a beautiful Baptism ceremony for little Andrew and Gavin. It’s so fun making memories.
I am hearing…a whispering Joseph.
Around the house…laundry. Does it ever end?
I am pondering…grace.
One of my favorite things…the big trees in our backyard. A luxury here in South Texas.
A few plans for the rest of the week: School, play, visit.
Here is picture I thought worth sharing…
