For Today... April 26, 2010
Outside my window... the pink dogwood is gorgeous (see above), and the white dogwood is close to blooming.
I am thinking... something. I'm sure I was thinking something.
I am thankful for... my family (of origin) close at hand and involved in the boys' lives, even to the point of showing up for soccer games in absolutely ridiculous weather!
I am praying for... my friend, Rachael, who had a little surprise last week - an appendectomy - and other family mayhem.
I am wearing... you know, clothes, the usual.
I am creating... plans for next school year. Because that's so much more fun than actually finishing this year's school work. But we will.
I am going... where the weather suits my clothes? No? Well, nowhere much, really.
I am reading... still finishing Lewis and Clark. Must check out something for me, next trip to the library.
I am hoping... for warmer, drier weather this week.
I am hearing... Scott Joplin. Wyatt is learning a (very simplified) version of The Entertainer on the piano.
I am remembering... I have dreamed three times in the last couple of months that we moved back to our first house. It's not that I want to. I like this house much, much better. But I do sort of long for our first house payment... $480/month. *sigh*
From the learning rooms... lots of little projects and experiments underway. Napoleon has been laid to rest and we're on to Simon Bolivar and Miguel Hidalgo. Negative exponents (*sigh*), the Chrysler Building, cups-pints-quarts-gallons.
From the kitchen... thawing a turkey to cook later in the week, but probably egg burritos tonight.
Around the house... looking a bit bare, since I (finally!) packed away our few Easter things, but we did a bit of cleaning and tidying over the weekend. Hallelujah.
On my mind... three more weeks of soccer, three more weeks. But I'm not counting, or anything.
Noticing that... must weigh and measure the boys today. Wyatt is sprouting up and some of Tate's pants are getting short.
Pondering these words...
It means, and this is just a rough translation,"A man with a spear trapped in a bird and a sideways fish in a vase.And there was also a beetle."
I don't think that's it.
That's just one possible translation.
One of my favorite things...
My uncomplaining little tough guy!
A few plans for the rest of the week... Moms In Touch today, piano lesson tomorrow, and soccer, soccer, soccer.
Here is a picture I am sharing...
I love this view out the school-room window.
