Seriously, how does he think of it all???

Outside my window...birds are chirping, dogs are barking and the sun is shining with a furious brightness.
I am thinking...that Home is the best place ever!
I am thankful for...babies, big boys and hunky hubby!
From the learning rooms...we are starting a new lapbook about inventions...how great is that? History AND science in one!! We are enjoying our read-aloud book called "Masterpiece" and fractions are getting the best of some of us.
From the kitchen...whole wheat bread is baking and tempting me with it's delightful aroma and bean soup is bubbling away on the back burner.
I am wearing...khaki capris and a sage and khaki speckled shirt that has too much Lycra for my taste.
I am creating...mended shirts, full tummies, a home to enjoy, a healthy mommy, happy hearts and boys that will become Men that follow God.
I am going...to stay home most of the week and have a coffee hour with Karen on Friday..so looking forward to that!
I am reading...the New Testament in 90 days with Dan and he is asking me to read each night before bed...WooHoo!
I am hoping...that we are scheduled to have out taxes done soon...got big plans with that 'extra' money!
I am hearing...James read about trains, the UPS truck drive by with Shadow barking at it, Titus' jumparoo rattling as he bounces happily and Mickey Mouse clubhouse...I'm allowing Derek to watch since he isn't feeling well today.
Around the house...much to clean, and a veritable MOUNTAIN of laundry to fold...I managed to get it clean, but keep putting off folding it so now it's taken my king sized bed hostage...BAD LAUNDRY!! ; )
One of my favorite things...doing this each week! It's 15 whole minutes of just me time and I look forward to it each week.
A few plans for the rest of the week...Getting into the habit of baking all of out bread, finally found a recipe that hubby approves, Getting a full week of school done, working out at LEAST 5 times, losing another 2 pounds or so, and making nutritious meals all week long.
Here is picture thought I am sharing...This is Tyler and Patrick (whom normally DON'T get along) this was taken at Pat's b-day party last week...they were reading Pat's new encyclopedia about big cats...so sweet!

The boys made their own swing to add to the playground in the backyard...so creative they are!!
I made my first attempt at cream puffs, they weren't QUITE right, but a very tasty mistake...yummy!

- Lose 40 pounds...that's the obvious one (not only portion control and exercise, but more HEALTHFUL eating...Health food co-op, here we come)
- TV is officially an only AFTER school and chores thing, as of this morning...they were SOOOO pleased!
- We are upping our goal of dinner at the table 5 nights a week to 6, so only pizza night is front of the TV now and with the carpet still being brand new, that's not even happening...hurray for progress!
- Make a LONG AWAITED trip to Illinois to visit with my family and friends that are so dear to us all
- Date night is 2x a month...minimum!
- Family Game night is every week with a family outing once a month
Well, that's enough of that...now I have a zillion people to help hold me accountable...that May and May NOT be a good thing...LOL! As for the rest of my AB~normal life, I'm loving it and wish you all could be here with me all the time! Lost Boys, Mama K misses you all so much! Be blessed and joyous in this new year~
