Daybook :: April 29
|One of the pictures Kayla took for Competition next week|
OUTSIDE MY WINDOW::
We are having the most amazing thunderstorm right now. Sheets of rain, whole-sky flashes of lightening. It's awesome. I even let the boys come down after bedtime. They wrapped up in blankets and we snuggled on the porch swing.
WHAT I'M LISTENING TO::
Storm outside, Dryer running, Odyssey playing in the boys' room.
WHAT I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO/DREAMING OF ::
Buying a farm!
THANKFUL FOR ::
The comfort of knowing God says no when it is best.
A very productive day of cleaning. I worked the kids extra hard this morning, so we had pizza and movie night tonight!
I was eating breakfast this week with some friends at a retirement center. I noticed there are two kinds of people: Happy ones and Negative ones.
I want to be a Happy One.
Tonight we read about fireflies. I am remembering the amazing, sparkling display of thousands and thousands of fireflies at my parents' house.
TO LIVE THE LIFE ::
TOWARDS RAISING HUNGRY LEARNERS ::
I am excited about learning with my kids. I have been working on planning things together - attending events, classes, etc. - that allow us to learn more together about things we love to do. More to come on all that!!
A FEW PLANS FOR THIS WEEK::
I can't remember what's happening without my calendar. I have doing a lot of decluttering, so I'm hoping to continue that. My focus has been very sharpened by some recent events, and that always helps. I need to go through and sort the mountain of stuff waiting to be donated, sold, etc.
I also plan to do some:
Freezer cooking for May
Monthly Mvelopes Budgeting for May
Make our "Summer Fun" schedule
Finish projects & send Kayla off to ACE Student Convention (maybe join her...)
Begin writing my sessions for a retreat coming up.
