Outside my window…there’s a whole lot of fun going on in the pool.
I am remembering…a visit with The Fabachers. And to think it all began with a dinner at Bennigans…
I am thankful for…time spent with my sister.
I am watching…this squirrel. I just about had a scare when I first saw him sprawled out like that…I thought I was going to have to scrape him off the front walk. Apparently he was cooling off.
I am wondering…what these two were thinking. It almost seemed as though they were looking in a mirror.
I am hoping…for rain. It’s been a dry, dry summer.
I am pondering…the idea of another herbal make-and-take.
I am laughing…about this photo…
I am planting…medicinal herbs. My sister found us a place in Austin that grows herbs…medicinal herbs. And they have tons of transplants. Now I just have to see if I can keep them alive.
I am reflecting…on the idea that all boobs are good boobs.
In the schoolroom…It’s always rough starting a new school year in July when everyone else is still lounging by the pool but it sure feels good when I start seeing first day of school photos and know that we’ve already gotten 6 weeks done.
Around the house…reading. I’m reading. They’re reading. We’re reading. It’s all good.
I am wearing…a bathing suit. Because who can resist a dip in the pool with so many eager little people?
We are preparing for…the Redwoods.
Someday I am going to miss…lizards in this kid’s pockets.
I am reading…a whole lot of random books. Random only in that I feel a little all over the place as far as what I’m reading to stay ahead of my kids. Not random as in unplanned. All of the books on each of the school shelves this year are there on purpose…lots of thought and love went into planning book lists this year thanks to my ADE consultation and any tweaks I made using The Plenary’s form guides. (These photos do not do credit to the rich and beautiful education my children are receiving. Charlotte Mason is about so much more than just a list of books. Thanks to the suggestions of wise folks like the ladies at ADE and Rachel over at A CM Plenary, our year is bound to be a journey that takes us all a little deeper in our educations…it is full of the good, the truth and the beauty. The books pictured here are only the tip of the iceberg for us. )
One of my favorite things…the sun coming in through the school room window in the morning.
A peek into my day…
