For Today... September 20, 2010
Outside my window... cloudy, wet, drippy, and raining.
I am thinking... about a friend, just starting out homeschooling.
I am thankful for... our fun, fun, fun week of camping, and now getting into our routine.
I am praying for... more work for Kerry. I don't mean to sound ungrateful - he does have a project he's working on, about a month's worth of work. Thank you, Lord. And then....
I am wearing... jeans, t-shirt, sweater. My uniform.
I am creating... I need to start creating some Christmas presents!
I am going... to get school started at 8am this week.
I am reading... A Place of Quiet Rest, by Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
I am hoping... the rain lets up for soccer practice.
I am hearing... drip, drip, drip.
I am remembering... when I grew up, my mom usually made a biggish Sunday dinner for lunch, and then we were on our own for dinner. Cold cereal was just fine.
Boys, take note.
From the learning rooms... Monday's tower of books and work-to-be-accomplished always seems the tallest of the week.
From the kitchen... leftovers?
Around the house... I'm breaking out the fall decorations. :D
On my mind... getting back into our routine, and all that that implies...
Noticing that... we seem to have skipped right over our usually lovely September.
Where are those crisp, sunny, kick-the-leaves and pick-apples days?
We've jumped right into cloudy, dark, and rainy.
Pondering these words...
The burden of suffering seems a tombstone hung around our necks,
while in reality it is only the weight
which is necessary to keep down the diver
while he is hunting for pearls.
- Johann Richter
One of my favorite things... sleeping under the stars with a warm, snuggly little boy.
A few plans for the rest of the week... school, soccer, school, soccer, school, soccer...
wash, rinse, repeat.
Here is a picture I am sharing...
Two years ago... they look so little!
