Outside my window... The sun is shining brightly and fluffy little clouds are floating by lazily. The forecast says that it will get up to 52 today...and that sounds good to me!
I am thinking... that getting up early with Dan (and STAYING UP) is a great plan...now to make it a habit.
I am thankful for... a hubby that not only meets my needs, but fulfills my wants, too. When I mentioned that I needed a few clothes, he didn't just say, "OK, see ya later and don't spend too much money." He offered to come with, picked out some great new pieces and was honest about what looked good and what wasn't quite right. Is he great or what?!?
I am wearing... some of the aforementioned new clothes. Jeans, a new pick graphic tee, socks and tennies.
I am remembering... the chapter or Romans I read this morning in my devotional time. We live by GRACE and not under the law.
I am going... Nowhere today, hurray! Maybe a picnic later this week, a trip to the library soon and all the usual stuff, but nowhere today : )
I am reading... "Learning to Love, When Love Isn't Easy", and Romans
I am hoping... that our homeschooling days will keep up with our new schedule while still allowing us the flexibility that we all enjoy.
On my mind... I need to flip the laundry...I know, really profound, right?
Noticing that... the boys get loud when they play together...my goodness!
Pondering these words... Romans 6:14-15 For sin shall not be your master, because you live not under law, but under grace. What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace?? By no means!
From the kitchen... Bread is rising and I've got SEVERAL dozen cookies laying all over the counter. For the rest of the week...
- Monday~ Stuffed peppers and salad
- Tuesday~ Baked chicken, stuffing and peas
- Wednesday~ Tacos with chips and salsa
- Thursday~Fish Fillets, Roasted Potatoes and carrot sticks
- Friday~ Pizza, chips and veggies with dip
- Saturday~ Leftovers/Fend
- Sunday~ Roasted Chicken, Mashed potatoes and Corn
From the learning rooms...the Patience copywork book we are all working on, alphabet lapbooks for Derek, our map is back from being laminated, (hurray) and we are working on tweaking our new schedule. ABeka from 9-11 M-Th mornings and Sat afternoon, My Father's World T and Th afternoons, Community service on Monday afternoons, Friday is craft class and the Library, Wednesday is for extra practice, projects or reading. Phew, that's a busy schedule.

Around the house... floors are waiting to be swept, dishes are waiting to be washed, boys are waiting to be taught and letters are waiting to be written...guess I better get started.
One of my favorite things... and From my picture journal... Men in the kitchen : ) I love men that cook, bake or even just hang out in the kitchen...Dan and 'Shua baked cookies yesterday while Lauren worked on schooling and I made pizza.
