Outside my window…it’s still mid 90s, the kids are still swimming and I promise, fall seems like a distant thought.
I am remembering…the pure joy of something as simple as painted nails.
I am thankful for…the delightful sound of baby giggles and the joy radiating from my children’s faces as they watched this sweet baby explore her surroundings.
I am watching…a reenactment of Clint Eastwood. He’s got the moves down but I’m pretty sure if he addresses me by fair lady once more, I’m going to have to look into that. I just can’t imagine Clint Eastwood approaching a woman and asking, “How goes it here my fair lady?” I think we’re getting our heroes confused. (By the way, the paper on the front of the bike is a hand drawn horse’s head…because that’s clearly not his bike, it’s his horse, of course.)
I am listening…to Katie. She is trying to convince me that it would be okay for her to get on the table. I just told her no and she replied, “Well then how about if you don’t watch me get on the table?”
I am wondering…what poems my kids will choose to memorize. I asked them each to memorize something to recite to Granny and Pappy next time we see them. It’ll be interesting to see what they choose.
I am laughing…at the response of the kids the other night to Daxson’s reading. He was reading aloud to them before they went to sleep and he read a sentence that said, “Mother and Father agreed that a tutor should come to the house every day…” Andrew’s little head popped over the side of his bunk and he said, “Did you say tooter?” All of the kids just dissolved into giggles. Even Dax got a good chuckle out of it as he realized their interpretation of tutor.
I am reflecting…on a friendship that makes my heart smile.
In the schoolroom…we’re moving onto 6 weeks of Jamestown studies, reading A Lion to Guard Us and Surviving Jamestown.
Around the house…finishing up thank you cards and catching up on emails. Long forgotten emails.
In the kitchen…Auntie Pie tonight. Although in this house, I guess we could call it Mommy Pie but Alex named it and now it is what it is. And Auntie Pie it is (which just for the record is really Taco Salad served with Fritos).
I am wearing…GAP shorts that are an unidentified color with a Target Knox Rose olive green tank top.
We are preparing for…our 2nd co-op meeting by reading a few scenes from Hamlet and watching some youtube clips.
Someday I am going to miss…this.
I am reading…Circling the Sun by Paula McLain.
One of my favorite things…discovering new-to-me old places.

Being Clint might be safer than Rocky at the moment.
Great pictures as always! Can’t wait to hear the poems.
