Outside my window…these two.  october-2016-078_1_1 october-2016-080_2_1 october-2016-088_3_1

I am remembering…how much the kids and I giggled over the ridiculousness of this story.  Some things are just entertaining.november-2016-204_1_1

I am thankful for…a beautiful camping trip in Goliad (despite Andrew sitting in a fire ant bed and me falling off an unmoving bike) full of lovely memories: an afternoon with Mom and Kathy, Scare on the Square, carving pumpkins, riding bikes and William’s lucky find.  So glad Leslie and Jessica joined us for the adventure.  october-2016-003_1_1 october-2016-004_2_1 october-2016-013_3_1 october-2016-021_4_1 october-2016-033_5_1 october-2016-038_6_1 october-2016-045_7_1 october-2016-054_8_1 october-2016-066_9_1   october-2016-084_10_1  october-2016-091_15_1 october-2016-101_14_1 october-2016-122_1_1 october-2016-131_1_1 october-2016-133_2_1 october-2016-134_3_1 october-2016-135_4_1

I am watching…the election results roll in (yep, this is really a “nightbook” not a “daybook”)

I am listening to...Little Paris Bookshop on my iPod and Secrets of a Charmed Life on Audible.

I am wondering…why this kid won’t keep a hairband on!  She looks so cute when she lets me put it on (until she pulls it off two seconds later).november-2016-202_2_1

I am laughing…because how could I not when greeted by these two superheroes?  november-2016-298_1_1

I am reflecting…on this conversation with Andrew when we were out riding bikes on Sunday.  We rode our bikes to the cemetery and stopped by Baby Land there, praying for the little souls and the mamas and papas who lost their little ones.  A few minutes later, this conversation occurred:

A:  Mommy, how did those moms and dads lose… (couldn’t hear everything as he was riding behind me)

M:  What?

A:  I said, how did those ….lose their babies?

M:  What?

A (as he rides up beside me): I said, how did those moms and dads lose their babies?  (and in the same breath, with a hint of astonishment) And how do these pedals work?  (as he pedals off to join his brothers, never even waiting for me to answer either question…I love the way their little brains work!)

In the schoolroom…new week.  New routine.  New schedule.  Renewed love of learning.

Around the house…books.  november-2016-276_1_1

In the kitchen…fancy breakfast.  Cereal with these delicious strawberries.  If you’re considering stocking up on food storage or you just want to add some dried food to your cabinet, I seriously recommend Thrive Life.  The food is delicious (we’re huge fans of the coconut bites…yum!).november-2016-292_1_1

I am wearing…shorts and a t-shirt…because it’s a very warm South Texas fall.

I am excited…because I’m learning Latin.  Yep, that excites me.  Weird, I know.

Someday I am going to miss…little feet sticking out from beneath the curtains.november-2016-286_1_1

I am readingWest with the Night (LOVE this!), Twain’s End (not far enough to judge), and Raising Godly Tomatoes (not really my thing…raising Godly children, yes, her methods, not so much). 

One of my favorite things…this crowd.october-2016-122_1_1

A peek into my day…waited over an hour today to have an MRI done of my shoulder that I should have had done 5 years ago when it all started.  november-2016-297_1_1_1
