This and That

Outside of the window…the sky is bright blue, the sun is out, goldfinches are snacking from the birdfeeder.

I am thinking…how I really don’t feel up to doing the 30 Day Shred.  But, I will.

I am thankful for…the free Summer Rec program they have in town.  Arts and crafts, tennis, basketball and swimming lessons all for free.  Exhausting but fun!

From the kitchen…lots of berries!

I am wearing…black yoga pants, teeshirt and grey hoodie.

I am creating… plans for next year’s co-op classes.  I am teaching Art twice a month, Science once a month and a Compassion International/Social Studies class once a month.

I am going…to finish this post,  hit the Shred, the shower and get some cleaning and homeschooling done before we need to leave for Summer Rec.

I am reading…lots of great children’s books that focus on African stories and culture and I will share some in my next post!

I am hoping…to come up with a better housekeeping plan for the upcoming weeks of Summer Rec.  Being out of the house for a few hours every single weekday calls for a better schedule in order to keep up with everything.  I am also hoping to get 3 letters written for our Compassion kids today and do the other 3 tomorrow.

I am praying… for the wisdom, grace and love needed to parent a pre-tween girl. Also for the patience and grace needed to parent without frustration and yelling.

I am hearing…lots of birds, Luna playing quietly, dishwasher running.

Around the house…Jay has gone to work, older girls are still in bed, I am sipping coffee.

A few plans for the rest of the week…more Summer Rec,  sleepovers, and a beach trip if it warms up.

A picture to share…

Lovely post. I love daybook-type posts. I can identify with lack of patience in parenting. I have so much work to do there.

Have a nice holiday weekend! Always a pleasure to read here.
