Outside my window...I can still see the sliver of the moon overhead and stars twinkling in the desert sky as I take advantage of the SUPER early morning to get a jump start on my day. It is cool and a gentle breeze floats in the windows.
I am thinking...that 4:30 is way too early to be up on purpose...LOL
I am thankful for...Men that go to work without complaint, week after week to provide for their family.
From the learning rooms...it's time to be wrapping up...so projects to finish, books to be polished off, pages to complete. I want to be done in the next few weeks....I think I'm as anxious for summer as they are...LOL
From the kitchen…soon, bread will be baking, dinner will be thawing and the boys will be chatting over pancakes, but for now, silence reigns over the few dishes in the sink that are the evidence of Dan and 'Shua's snacking frenzy last night
I am wearing…my tweety bird Pjs...because I'm SOOO going back to bed as soon as this is written
I am creating…SCHEDULED life...I know, life happens, but around here, we need to structure to function...9 people don't live amiably without some order
I am going...nowhere today, but am working the evening shift most of the rest of the week. Maybe we can start working on our summer reading lists by taking a trip to the library after Jodi returns home from Michigan
I am reading...Nothing yet...although I have managed to find my new 'Where to Find it in the Bible' Book this week and have been enjoying looking up things as I think of them.
I am hoping...that staying on schedule and being more consistent with the children will not only bring some order to the house, but get ME back on track as I will be more focused, less harried (always a good thing!) and able to focus on enjoying my family, not just caring for the family
Around the house...things are picked up and we are going to give the house a once over before Jodi gets back today, the yard needs to get the toys corralled again, and today might be a great day to hook the hose up to the trampoline
One of my favorite things...4:30 AM when I can sneak around the house and peek at all my sleeping boys...so sweet!
A few plans for the rest of the week…SCHEDULE, school, work for me, Game night, Family night and HOPEFULLY, the return of date night.
Here is picture thought I am sharing...Dan took this on his way up to Cloudcroft last year and it just seems so serene and idyllic.
