Daybook, June 21, 2010

Outside my window...scorching sun...blackberries needs hoeing
I am thinking...about how much I miss my little ones when they aren't here
I am thankful for...suppers cooked with garden vegetables...a rainbow of colors arranged in a vase...God's continual refinement of me
From the learning rooms...eager learners...seeking the sanctuary of the house in the hot afternoons
From the kitchen...blackberries...freshly picked...waiting to be made into a cobbler
I am wearing...T-shirt and pants...stained with blackberries
I am creating...a list of words to define and explain from Bo's year one readings...we will begin in January
I am gather the eggs...the green beans...and the zucchini
I am reading...verses on to scaffold during narration article...couponing blogs
I am be a more understanding and gentle utter failure in this area has been so obvious lately
I am hearing...the pitter patter of baby feet...unusual quietness...the big kids are gone to grandmas
Around the house...a renewed determination to keep a couple of clutter areas clean
One of my favorite things...holding my little ones and smelling their hair
A few plans for the rest of the week:
  • plant the strawberry runners
  • harvest the first of the peas
  • speak words of affirmation to my little ones daily
Here is picture for thought I am sharing...

Daddy's homemade slip-n-slide was a big hit!
