Outside my Window….
sunny, dry weather. Pray we get some rain soon, the dirt roads are dust. We are still having wonderful warm weather very inviting to spend the day outside playing.
I am thankful….
for having wonderful friends in my life, that I get to spend every weekend with.
I am thinking about…..
our trip to Disney, the four children and I are trying to go tomorrow.
From the learning rooms….
we are working diligently at staying on task daily. My oldest is now caught up in his LLATL. We did make a change in his history to Beautiful from BJU. He is such a reader that this is more adapted to him. My next son saw all the literature and very frankly announced he was not doing that when his time came. We will see. he has several years before that comes. We practice music daily and have lessons 4 times a week.
From the kitchen….
tonight homemade fried chicken broccoli and stuffing. Tomorrow chili or burritos. Wednesday sandwiches and soup long night. Thursday Chicken and dumplings portion of it to go to a friends sick dad.
I am wearing…
a denim skirt and blue tank top. still dressing like summer.
I am creating…
should what I have finished I have many things I am working on. Sometimes to many at once. I did finish my knitted market bag this weekend, I also made a cello bib with embroidered front for a very important friend. Know to make one for my other dear friend. I am still hand quilting my lap quilt, doing another rag quilt for my other son and a dress for my daughter then a top for myself. Now just to find the time to complete each project. And my poor husband is still waiting on his afghan I started 2 yrs ago. It is huge and single crochet. Would like to have it for him soon.
I am going to …
today and tomorrow the public school is off, which means two of our extra activities are cancelled. This is good it gives us a rest and hopefully get to Disney tomorrow. Waiting to hear from our friend that we asked to go with us.
I am reading..
Milly Molly Mandy with the two younger children.
I am hoping and praying..
work continues for my husband, he has been so busy that it is an answer to prayer.
I am hearing…
my son on his cello, blessing and joy to my heart to hear him just go in and practice all on his own again. Has been awhile since he has had the desire to pick it up after losing his cello buddy and teacher Mr. May. Thank you to Mr. Miller, Mrs. May and Emily to help restore his love.
Around the house….
laundry being done, music practice, two younger ones outside somewhere kind of to quiet. Oldest is reading his literature for history.
One of my favorite things…
hearing my children play their instruments
A few plans for the rest of the week…
emails to be sent out, orchestra Wednesday, Disney trip and school work to be done. Hopefully a grocery trip in there soon.
Here is a picture I would like to share….
To read more daybook’s stop by The Simple Woman’s Dayook.
Blessing to your week and thank you for stopping by and being apart of our home.

I love hearing my children want to do school. They are so enjoying Milly Molly Mandy. I ended up break up the crust and mixing it in and it was delicious.

This year I have really been concentrating on my children. They are here with me for such a short time in our life. That I want them to know how important they are: I don't want them thinking that the computer and everyone else is more important then them.
This year we are going more then normal with a added orchestra to our schedule then what was going to be one day extra has turned into 2 days. I am grateful for this opportunity my children have.
I do have pictures to post of them all playing.
As I am typing my children at this moment are waiting on me: we are making blackberry puddings from our Milly Molly Mandy comprehension together. This has been great time spent with 2 of my children.
I am leaning to listen to my children and what makes them feel loved and special to mom and dad.
We will take a photo and post how our pudding comes out.
Will be back with some pictures for all to see hopefully by week end.
Have a blessed week
