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...
