Simple Woman #60

For today...  May 3, 2010

Outside my window...  my computer is upstairs in a corner room, with windows on two sides.  Outside, the white dogwood is beginning to bloom, filling both windows with creamy blossoms.  It's kind of like sitting in a cloud.  

I am thinking...  HA HA HA!  Yes, it is beautiful, but it is also 47F/8C.  It looks like spring.  It smells like spring.  But it's October, in sheep's clothing.  Blowing and raining buckets most of the night.

I am thankful for...  well the good thing is that the boys don't really have 'spring fever' yet.

I am praying for...  more work for Kerry.

I am wearing...  winter clothes, people.  

I am creating...  plans, plans, plans.  We are coming down the homestretch in our school year.  (Don't tell the boys - I don't think they realize, yet.)  They had a PTO Day on Friday and I spent the whole day figuring out what we really need to do to finish this year, and then mapping out next year.  Woo-hoo!

I am going...  hoping to stay home all day :D

I am hoping...  for warmer weather.  Pllleeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaasssssssseeeee.

I am hearing...  quiet.  Blessed quiet.  The boys are reading and the wind and rain have died down.  But all of that is temporary, I'm sure.

I am remembering...  sunshine.  I know I've seen it.  (/sarcasm)

From the learning rooms...  Abolition, symmetry, prepositional phrases, place value to trillions, (no, we're not studying the national debt... though you may find this interesting), division, and maybe a pinata.

Around the house...  books.  Piles of books.  And some more books.

On my mind...  Gunnar, who is EIGHT, mind you, had decided to read The Lord of the Rings.  I wasn't sure he could do it.  Well, I know he could, but would he enjoy it?  So I suggested he start with The Hobbit and then re-evaluate.  He's finished that and is about a third of the way through The Fellowship of the Ring.  I'm impressed.

Noticing that...  Wyatt is having a very difficult soccer season.  He's on a combined U13/14 team, and his division didn't have enough kids for a U12 team, so there are a few of those boys as well, playing up.  Which means they have a very young team.  And most of the boys are fairly small.  And they're playing against giants.  Sometimes the other teams are a full foot or more taller than our boys.

We've lost every game but one.  And Wyatt is handling it.

So this is progress.

Pondering these words...  Philippians 2:14-15

One of my favorite things...  babies with bubble-cheeks.

A few plans for the rest of the week...  soccer, piano, soccer, AWANA, soccer, the library, soccer....

Here is a picture I am sharing...

My son was on a similar soccer team... the upside is next year they will have the experience (and growth) to really do well. This year? It's a hard row...
