To participate go here.For today Monday March 16.
Outside my window...It is just starting to get light outside...it'll be another sunny day.
I am thinking...about filling out my bracket for the NCAA tournament, the beautiful space shuttle launch, and how I'm missing Mike...I hate when he's away.
I am thankful for...my parents...we spent the night at their house last night...we are heading home in a little while.
From the kitchen...we had my favorite pizza and greek salad with my parents last night, tonight will be something simple, I haven't made a meal plan yet for this week.
From the learning rooms...I had decided Jake will do Five in a Row next year, and now I'm leaning towards doing less of what he's been doing (My Father's world first grade) and starting that now, he is so smart and not a good cooperator, but I'm thinking making it a little more fun at this point wouldn't hurt. Jonathan and Madi are still in the "roaring 20's"... I took a great picture of Madi as a "flapper" last night...using stuff that belonged to my grandmother (Mugga) and her mother (Gramma Kitty...who passed away when I was in third grade). We're also trying to quickly work through our latest science book (Human Body), lots of math, and writing club will start Thursday.
I am creating...Madi and I made Sari hot pink playdough and a Winnie the Pooh and Tigger purse for her birthday...does that count?
I am wearing...jammies.
I am reading...actually I am listening to Marley and Me on a "playaway" digital audio device from the library...it's very cool. I also borrowed two books from OBM that I plan to read this week.
I am hoping...for a good week!
I am hearing...the kids watching Pet Star with Mario Lopez.(we are palnning a "new regime" at our house including no "screen time" until all responsibilities are done...but we're at my parents so they are catching a break)
Around the house...We had Sari and Mr OBM's party at our house on Saturday (31 kids)...and it is pretty clean.
One of my favorite things...my parents' outside shower.
I am going... to take an outside shower when I finish this.
A few plans for the rest of the week...Implimenting our "new regime", babysitting today instead of tomorrow and then a visit with some old friends, St Patrick's Day tomorrow--PE, the park, Theatre, Little league practice and Mike home tomorrow night, prety typical rest of the week--running like maniacs and trying to squeeze in some schooling along the way. I think the weekend is pretty calm though...I hope.
A picture thought... My father and "bracketology"...
