Outside my window…it is still light out, despite the fact that we’ve eaten, bathed, and three of four children are already tucked in. These long days make me lose track of time so easily.
I am blessed…with amazing friends.
I am remembering…how much fun we had today. We are going to miss these friends so much, come the end of summer, when they leave our sparkling city by the sea.
I am thankful…to have finally uploaded my pictures to Walgreens…now to just get organized enough to place an order.
In the refrigerator…lentil soup. What is it about lentil soup that everyone goes ga-ga over? Every.single.bowl. is always devoured in record time and I don’t ever find myself saying, “take a bite.” Seriously, if I could get away with serving lentil soup every night, I think I would. Just for the peace.
I am wearing…blue gym shorts and a purple tank top.
I am creating…our plans for next year. I finally made some choices, ordered books, and now it’s all just sitting there. Waiting for me to do something with it.
I am going…to get back into planning next week. My brain has kind of turned to mush these last few weeks, but I know if I don’t get back into the swing of planning, then there will be no plans in place when fall comes.
We are celebrating…birthdays! Joseph just turned 7 on the 11th and Andrew’s birthday is coming up.
I am inspired…by Sarah Mackenzie’s book Teaching from a State of Rest. I cannot recommend her book and the accompanying podcasts enough. Brilliant. Inspirational. Food for the homeschooling mama’s soul.
I am reading…Little Shop of Homicide by Denise Swanson…a new series by one of my favorite mystery writers. So far, so good. Just finished Thirty One and a Half Regrets by Denise Grover Swank on my Kindle and am anxiously awaiting the next book. That one had me on the edge of my seat! Also just finished The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh for book club and am completely mystified by the whole idea of flowers. Identifying them. Buying them. Learning the language. Seriously, I had no idea how overwhelming the world of flowers could be.
In our learning room…such fun summer plans…plants, Native Americans, the beginning of Christianity and so much more…hoping to share our plans in detail soon.
One of my favorite things…visits with Granny.
