#16 for 2010
Hosted by Peggy at the Simple Woman's Daybook ... visit her site to find out about creating your own daybook or to find other daybooks to visit.

Outside my window ... it is sunny and quite warm ... the kids are playing with the puppy and cleaning out the van, at least that is what they are supposed to be doing.
I am hearing ... D getting into something in the kitchen and heading back outside.
I am wearing ... jeans and a blue CHEB t-shirt.
I am going ... to take the older kids to play practice and then to run errands with D.
I am noticing that ... summer seems to be well on its way!
I am thinking ... that puppies and kids are a good, but messy, mix
I am hoping ... to get Daisy moved into her new home in the back yard very soon.
I am reading ... A Love Woven True by Tracie Peterson and Judith Miller.
I am creating ... ???
I am remembering ... the people who have suffered so much loss in the last couple of weeks from storms and flooding.
On my mind ... a discussion with Ronnie last night and how we need to proceed in the matter.
I am pondering ...  the words to one of my favorite hymns:

What a friend we have in Jesus, All our sins and griefs to bear! 
What a privilege to carry Everything to God in prayer! 
Oh, what peace we often forfeit, Oh, what needless pain we bear,
All because we do not carry Everything to God in prayer!

Counting my blessings ... healthy, happy kids, new curriculum on the way, finding a few minutes to read.
From the learning rooms ... puppy training!
From the kitchen ... since we are going to be gone almost every night for the next couple of weeks, I think we are going to make lunch our bigger meal and then just have leftovers for supper.  I'll start working toward that tomorrow ... today we are having chicken sandwiches for lunch and I'm not sure what we will have for supper ... maybe the same thing!
A few plans for the rest of the week ... we've got another busy week with extra play practice, the last book-it of the year and the kids' musical on Thursday night.  For the most part, this is the final week of homeschool events for the year, so things should calm down a bit after this week.
One of my favorite things ... a good night's sleep.
A picture to share with you ... LB before her first solo ... she tapped to Singing in the Rain. This year her solo is a lyrical ballet to Love by Chris Tomlin.  Her class is also doing a lyrical ballet to Amazing Grace ... this will be a first for her class and I can't wait to see how it goes.
Thanks for stopping by ... have a great week!
