For Today, May 30, 2011
Outside my window... beautiful dogwood blossoms... dripping with rain. *sigh*
I am thinking... about all the things I'd like to do.
I am thankful for... my nutso family ;D
I am praying for... good decision making, work for Kerry, attentiveness and attitudes for the boys.
I am wearing... jeans, navy t-shirt, navy sweater.
I am creating... plans, plans, plans.
I am going... slowly crazy??? *sigh* Well, it feels like it anyway.
I am reading... more Richard Peck, The Teacher's Funeral: A Comedy in Three Parts
I am hearing... boys running laps around the house, getting some fresh air and exercise.
I am remembering... what a sunny day looks like.
From the learning rooms... China's Cultural Revolution, the end of the Berlin Wall and the reunification of Germany, words with sym/syn, solving equations with variables, percents/decimals/fractions, story problems with multiplication and division, what makes a bird a bird, paleontology/archaeology/geology, and still... memorizing... Philippians... 2.....
From the kitchen... lots of leftovers from the weekend. Time to thaw out another turkey.
Around the house... I am feeling in a rut. Must do something about all our books. Those of you with large home libraries - how do you organize them?
On my mind... how fast the boys are growing up. Very bittersweet.
Noticing that... the boys are working more independently :D
Pondering these words...
Thought breeds thought; children familiar with great thoughts take as naturally to thinking for themselves as the well-nourished body takes to growing;
- Charlotte Mason
One of my favorite things... orderly spaces, ahhhhhhh :D
A few plans for the rest of the week... the boys are hoping to go see Pirates 4, in 3D. Maybe even in Seattle, on the big IMAX screen.
Here is a picture I am sharing...
Memorial Day... remember.
