Daybook for October 12, 2009

Outside my window ...
it is cloudy and much cooler and supposed to rain all week. Fall must be floating in this year!

I am wearing ...
sweats and a t-shirt.

I am hearing ...
music coming from JW's CD player ...
I've got the joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart, down in my heart, down in my heart to stay.

I am going ...
hopefully to pick up JW's new glasses.

I am thinking that ...
I really should have carved out some time for school planning this weekend. I'll have to work it in while the kids are doing chores.

I am hoping ...
that the rain will end soon so the kids can get outside and play. We all get a little crazy when they are cooped up in the house.

I am reading ...
Song of the Silent Harp by B.J. Hoff. The first of the Emerald Ballad series about the Irish immigration to America during the potato famine. I've read the series before, but am enjoying reading them again. I love to read historical fiction

I am remembering ...
the very challenging sermon we heard at church last night.

I am thankful for ...
the arrival of fall weather ... even with the rain.

On my mind ...
a friend who is having surgery this week and my daddy who will be starting physical therapy for his shoulder.

Words that I am pondering ...
No man, when he hath lighted a candle, putteth it in a secret place, neither under a bushel, but on a candlestick, that they which come in may see the light. Luke 11:33


From the learning rooms ...
today we will review last week's science lesson do the note booking for it. We will also begin Tree in the Trail ... the new geography book for co-op.

From the kitchen ...
I need to make English muffins and bread today. Baked fish is on the menu for tonight and I'm planning on making soup at least once this week since the weather is turning cooler.

Around the house ...
lots of cleaning and laundry. It is also time to find the kids' clothes I put up from last winter and see what still fits and what we will need to replace.

A few plans for the rest of the week ...
the usual stuff, plus picking up JW's glasses, a trip to the library and two birthday parties this weekend ~ one for LB's friend and one for my Mom.

One of my favorite things ...
FALL!!


A picture to share with you ...
these pictures were taken several years apart ... the ones of JW were taken either just before D was born, or while he was still in a crib, since it is before the boys began sharing the bunk beds. We took the ones of D just the other night. I thought they were cute and wanted to share them today. I had completely forgotten about the ones of JW until I was browsing my pictures this morning ... amazing that the boys both played this little game and that they both chose the yellow drawer to do it in. And yes, D is really asleep in the last picture. I took the pic just before Ronnie took him out of the box for the night.

Adorable pics of your boys!

My kids always loved that song, I've got the Joy, Joy, Joy Down in my Heart, too. My Janae loved to sing "Where" in between all the "Down in my Heart"(s).

Fall is definitely one of my favorites, too.

Such cute pictures. Baking sounds good. I love to bake. I have a JW but he's grown now with a young family. They grow so fast. I hope you have a wonderful week. Doylene
