#14 for 2010
hosted by Peggy @ The Simple Woman's Daybook

Outside my window ... it has been a glorious day.  The only problem with such lovely spring weather is keeping the kids (and myself) focused on what we need to accomplish indoors ... in other words ~ school!

I am wearing ... my jammies, but that is okay 'cause it is 11:30 at night and I am about to go to bed!

I am hearing ...  Ronnie and D watching Gilligan's Island up front.  Don't ask me why my 4 year old is still awake, I won't have a good answer.

I am going ... to bed soon, I hope.  Tomorrow will be a typical Tuesday with the exception of my trip back to the dentist so that they can put on my "real" crown and JW's first baseball game of the season tomorrow night ... GO RAMS!

I am thinking ... that I don't need to forget to re-check the kids' books from the library tomorrow.  They always check out more than they can read before they are due.

I am hoping ... to see some of the plants in our garden sprouting up tomorrow.

I am reading ... Hank the Cowdog with JW ... I can't say that these are my favorite books, but the kids love them, so we'll keep reading for now.

I am creating ... the girls at Keepers this week are making scrapbook pages to frame and I am helping LB get her stuff together.

On my mind ... goals for our summer session of school.

I am remembering ... that I need to print the pictures for LB's Keepers' project.

Counting my blessings ... our weekend getaway, my parents being willing to keep the kids this weekend, the beautiful weather we are having, new insights to ponder, new glimpses into God's promises through the series of sermons our pastor has been preaching on God's covenants.

Words that I am pondering ... "And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man live."  Deuteronomy 8:3

From the learning rooms ... we will soon be finishing up science and geography for the year and I am looking forward to moving into our summer schedule.

From the kitchen ... something with ham and cheese and potatoes for supper, but I am not sure exactly how I am going to put those together ... any ideas would be welcome!  I am also hoping to get some bread made this week.

Around the house ... I'm still working on organizing the kids' rooms ... I really need a better plan for making them responsible for keeping their rooms clean.

A few plans for the rest of the week ... not too much going on except baseball and the usual things we do.

One of my favorite things ... watching my kids playing in the yard ... especially when they are all getting along.

A picture to share with you ... this is what was needed for my three kids to spend one night with my parents!  In their defense (and mine) ~ JW had an extra bag with his baseball stuff so that Daddy could take him to his practice game Friday night, and LB had to take her dance bag so that she could go to her solo practice on Saturday.  Sometimes I miss the days when all we needed was a diaper bag!

Thanks for visiting ...
I hope you have a wonderful week!

LOL! My daughter used the same suitcase that my husband and I used for one whole week in London for 3 days at youth camp!! And it was FULL! I hope you have a great week, and I'm glad you're having such nice weather.

We pack about the same amount when the kids go to my parents -- and there are only TWO kids, and generally there are no extras. They just have tons of stuffed animals that HAVE to go for the good times...

I know it's a little too late, but boil and slice the potatoes, cube the ham, put cheese, milk, butter, s & p all over it and place in oven.

One of my kids absolute favorites and doesn't need any sides if I don't have time. Sides does not include dessert.

I call my son JW also. I don't think that is so much for three nights. I love the picture. It's ballgame season for the kids. That's my hubby's favorite time of year. I hope you have a great week. Doylene
