Outside my window... rainy & grey today. Sun the rest of the week!
I am thinking... about taking the children to the zoo this week. Shhh!
I am thankful... that my brother Russell has confessed his faith Jesus Christ as his Savior! PRAISE GOD for His mercies!!!
In the kitchen... grilled whole chicken for dinner. Yum!
I am wearing... black buttoned shirt with a long skirt.
I am creating... this shawl for Abigail's Christmas gift. The yarn is lovely.
I am going... to wake my littles after this post. A grey morning equals sleeping in. :)
From the learning rooms... ordering books and supplies today. Everyone is eager for our packages to arrive! :) New stuff is so encouraging!
I am reading... The Hidden Life of Prayer on my iPad.
I am hoping... my parents enjoy their vacation this week!
I am looking forward to... quiet time today. Lots of MP3 talks to listen to this week as we work on projects.
I am learning... latin! :) Trying to be diligent & consitent in learning with the children. Glad Benjamin has just begun at the beginning so I can catch up. (And equally glad Patricia does so well on her own!)
Around the house... things look pretty good. I should get to the bathrooms today though.
I am pondering... how classical education looks different than education and which our home education truly reflects.
A favorite quote for today... "O brother, pray; in spite of Satan, pray; spend hours in prayer; rather neglect friends than not pray; rather fast, and lose breakfast, dinner, tea, and supper- and sleep too- than not pray. And we must not talk about prayer, we must pray in right earnest. The Lord is near. He comes softly while the virgins slumber." - A. A. Bonar
One of my favorite things... our new iPhones! :)
A few plans for the rest of the week: Benjamin has an eye appt. That's it! :) Maybe the zoo?
A peek into my day... Uncle Russell with Emily:
