daybook ~ April 20

For Today...
April 20, 2015

Outside my window…
The sun is setting on a beautiful day!
It was nice to see the sunshine again.

I am thinking…
about the busy few weeks ahead … rehearsals for 2 plays, and then both performances, final preparations for Lora's dance recital, not to mention the final weeks of co-op classes! I am looking forward to our more relaxed summer schedule!

Counting my blessings…
the opportunity to allow my children to be involved in activities that they love. I've probably said that before … but it truly is a blessing to me.  Especially when I think of the number of hours that adult volunteers put in to make these opportunities possible.

I am wearing…
gray shorts and an 
Operation Christmas Child t-shirt.

I am creating…
plans for items to crochet for my friend's
first grandchild who will be making her 
appearance this fall!

I am going…
to be running all day tomorrow … yippee.

I am wondering…
what I assigned for tomorrow's lit co-op class ... and if I have actually read it yet.

I am reading…
Aesop's Fables with Daniel … he is loving it.

I am hoping…
that everything goes well with 
James' doctor's visit tomorrow.

I am learning…
that the older my kids get, the more time I have to spend prepping to teach … 
I know it makes perfect sense, 
but I'm not sure I was prepared for how much high school math I had forgotten.

In my kitchen…
by request of my middle child and with my youngest child's help, homemade pizza. One pepperoni and one hamburger, the first for my boys and the second because it is their Mama's favorite.

In the homeschool room…
just the same-old stuff.

A favorite quote for today…
The Way of the Cross Leads Home
by: Jessie B. Pounds

I must needs go home by 
the way of the cross,
There's no other way but this;
I shall ne'er get sight 
of the gates of light,
If the way of the cross I miss.

I must needs go on in the 
blood-sprinkled way,
The path that the Savior trod,
If I ever climb to the heights sublime,
Where the soul is at home with God.

Then I bid farewell to
 the way of the world,
To walk in it nevermore;
For the Lord says “Come,” 
and I seek my home
Where He waits at the open door.

The way of the cross leads home,
The way of the cross leads home,
It is sweet to know, as I onward go,
The way of the cross leads home.

One of my favorite things…

A peek into one of my days…
James and Daniel in our tree. 

  And yes, James is reading his lit book!
