For today... June 14, 2010
Outside my window... chorophyll, everywhere you look, cholorphyll.
I am thinking... just which gene is it that programs boys to make all those noises?
(Deep thoughts, people.)
I am thankful for... finishing with our school work and testing, and the freedom and openness that brings to our daily schedule.
I am praying for... my mom is recovering from hand surgery, Kerry could use some work, and the boys and I need to find the right balance of free time and structure that makes a happy summer.
I am wearing... capris, t-shirt, sandals.
I am creating... making slow progress on the Christmas quilt.
I am going... slowly. Very slowly. :D
I am reading... need to pick up a stack of books from the library.
I am hearing... the boys playing out in the yard. A lot of yelling. But it's (mostly) happy yelling.
I am remembering... being excited about the last day of school, as a kid!
From the learning rooms... not much. Since public school is still in session, (and neighborhood kids are not available to play), we'll be keeping ourselves occupied with 'projects' ;D
Around the house... balloons from yesterday's end-of-our-school-year party, enormous chocolate "reward" bars, and Calvin and Hobbes books.
On my mind... the complexities of kid-friendships. *sigh*
Noticing that... the boys are growing and maturing at an amazing rate.
Pondering these words... a sacrifice of praise.
One of my favorite things... my boys' faces :D
A few plans for the rest of the week... reading, sewing, working in the yard if the weather permits, and Wyatt's piano recital on Saturday.
Here is a picture I am sharing...
Both dogwoods in full bloom... a few weeks ago.
