The not so simple woman's daybook
For today Monday July 27th.
Outside my window...it is a cloudy morning (again, I just saved this from last week).
I am thinking...about these questions. I've been answering them for over a year. I still love to do this post, but I'm considering cheating some more (I already cheat by never linking it to the original simple mother's daybook anymore) and taking what works for me, adding some more, and leaving the rest.
I am thankful...for my family.
From the kitchen...we have a list on the refrigerator of some pretty typical meals for this week including spaghetti and sausage, tacos, breakfast for dinner...no shopping until August 1st (the budget:)).
From the learning rooms...Jake's got 5 days of school marked off on the chart in the loft. He will start Three Names by Patricia MacLachlan for Five in Row today. He also did a math lesson everyday last week (Singapore 1B) and a Language lesson (First Language Lessons). I feel like I should make a footnote here after my previous post on delayed academics *Jake is a different kid, he is more "academic" not to mention I'm finally beginning to realize he does better with more structure (too bad it took me 6 1/2 years to figure this out!!). Jonathan and Madi are working through their no-reward reading lists and both doing Theatre camp for the next three weeks. Madi is Cora in Thoroughly Modern Millie and Jonathan is doing tech for that. They are also both in The Somewhat True Tales of Robin Hood.
I'm creating...organizational plans...still.
I am wearing...this is definitely one of the questions that I'll delete if I start doing my own thing.
I am reading...@HOME for the Holidays. Also still Managers of their Homes and Managers of their Chores and the Homeschooling high school book that I got the other day.
I am hoping...that Jonathan and Madi get Minnie's cage cleaned out before the garbage truck comes.
I am hearing...Mike leaving for work, Jonathan and Madi getting ready for the day, and Jake playing Legos Star Wars on the wii.
Around the house...it's getting there, the family cleaned up pretty well when I was gone on Saturday.
One of my favorite things...blog comments.
I am going...to a 27th birthday party today, and today is the 27th!
A few plans for the rest of the week...school, theatre, friends, etc...
