For Today…September 15th, 2008
Outside my Window…cars driving by
I am thinking…How beautiful Layla looks in her new skirt
From the learning rooms…Layla working on her extra math book. Yes, she has an extra math book. She loves school so much that I had to get her extra workbooks to do when school is over. She does them at night, in the morning, on the weekends, and even on vacations.
I am thankful for…what an amazing big brother Ian is. He adores those babies and is the biggest help. I think that without him, I could accomplish nothing.
From the kitchen…the smell of freshly baked pumpkin muffins and cream cheese frosting.
I am wearing…purple one truth shirt that says "Beloved, because you never look more beautiful than in His eyes" and my ugly skirt. Everyone thinks it's ugly, but it's my favorite!
I am reading…Emma by Jane Austen (again), the Bible, Winnie-the-Pooh to the munchkins.
I am hoping…to figure out a way to get our stuff out of storage when we go to California for my cousin's wedding at the end of the month. $1500 for the truck and gas, I have no idea how we will come up with it. I sure am hoping though!
I am creating…our school schedule for the week. Not very exciting, but it must be done.
Around the house…Josiah napping, Hannah falling asleep, Ruth playing, Ian and Layla playing a board game.
One of my favorite things…the first cup of coffee in the morning. Just mama and the babies awake, daddy's at work, everyone else sleeping. The babies laugh and play, mama can just relax, read, drink that cup of coffee, and be at peace for the day.
I am praying for... Calli (always!), my beautiful sister
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week…get stuff put away that still hasn't been put away because there's nowhere to put it. I'm creative, I can think of something, right?
I accomplished since last week…Josiah got his hair cut.
Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...
