Outside my window...
I am thinking...
...that my plan for Audra to spend part of her quiet time in the bathtub was brilliant. If she weren't in the tub, she would be checking in with me every 3 minutes and now... she can't. But I can hear her and she's having a blast!
...for a fun school day with the kids- much of it outside.
Long, knit, black Target maxi-skirt, with a brown v-neck tee. Bare feet. Hair up.
Well. I sewed four new pillow covers yesterday- for our living room pillows. Cute new fabric.
And this morning I drew some flowers that are currently blooming in our yard/garden during nature study. (Pretend I'm inserting a picture, here.)
....to read my book when I'm done with this blog post.
...why my computer won't let me delete that "I am wondering" line.
I Shall Be Near To You, by Erin Lindsay McCabe- about a woman who disguises herself as a man and joins the Union army so that she can be near her husband.
The Living Page: Keeping Notebooks with Charlotte Mason, by Laurie Bestvater
The Boy on the Wooden Box, by Leon Leyson- (read-aloud to the kids) a memoir about a Jewish boy living in Poland whose life was saved by Oskar Schindler.
...for a good nights sleep tonight.
...Mark coming home from work. Always. I love that husband of mine.
...that waking the kids earlier in the mornings makes for a more productive (and smoother) school day, that I love setting aside one chunk of time each week (with Mark) to plan school for that week, that every.single.year when spring hits, I want to launch right in on planning for our next school year. (I am reminding myself to slow down (on the planning) and finish *this year* well.)
