For today.....

Outside my window: its sunny & warm with a slight breeze

I am thinking: about my husbands friend, who just found out he has cancer and will start chemo on Friday. Also, about my #4 son who needs to find a new job with a steady salary (he's a waiter right now) and he needs a new roommate who is honest.

I am thankful for: time. Time to homeschool, cook & bake, play games, read books, sew, blog, chat with friends

From the learning rooms: Katie finished with her geometry today and ended the course with a 95 average. Amy and Will are almost finished with Pre-Algebra. Last co-op classes are on Friday!

From the kitchen: Spaghetti, Garlic Bread, brownies

I am wearing: jeans, pink tank, pink blouse and comfy shoes

I am creating: I made a pheasant style blouse yesterday for me. I am still tweaking the blouse because the pattern was too big. Also cross stitching a Friends, Family, Faith picture for my home.

I am going: on a great vacation with my husband and 3 youngest children. We are headed to the Grand Canyon! Lots of exploring in the RV for a couple of weeks! We leave Saturday!

I am reading: "The Second Mayflower" by Kevin Swanson and "Davy Crockett: His Own Story", with the kids. Yesterday I finished "Killer Angel" by George Grant. (If you ever want to know the true story behind Planned Parenthood and its founder, Margaret Sanger, then this is the book for you)

I am hoping: when I get to my friends house, her twin baby girls are awake! Can't wait to hold these little blessings.

I am hearing: nothing. Will is upstairs, the girls are at dance, and the dogs are outside.

Around the house: getting ready for vacation and finishing lessons

One of my favorite things: spending time with my Mom

A few things for the rest of the week: visit and hold babies, homeschool Mom's meeting, quilting class, bible study/prayer at church, baking for trip, co-op classes, Westward ho!

  1. I was wondering the same thing, Rie!

    I hope y'all have a wonderful trip and take LOTS of pictures. I have to admit to a certain amount of jealousy ... the idea of spending a "couple of weeks in a RV" sounds perfect to me!


Welcome to the farm ~ we are a blended family with 7 children (3 are married), 4 grandsons, 5 dogs, 3 rabbits, and 15 chickens living on 3 acres in Georgia. I love crafting, sewing, cooking & canning, recipes of all kinds, reading, playing with my little buddies, family time, travel, pinterest and most of all the Lord.
