How about a daybook?

Last week I was on a roll with three posts, now I'm back to slacking again. That's the funny thing about blogs though, the less you post, the more you're actually living (maybe).

Outside My Window:

We have a huge pile of sand in our driveway. Jake and the neighbors have had a lot of fun with it.

I am Listening to:

Jake talk about the scripts he is writing for his A to Z Mysteries plays that "Jake Acts" will be performing.

I am Wearing:

A bathing suit and cover-up because we just got back from the beach.

I'm Reading:

Rejoice by Karen Kingsbury it is the 4th in a series of 5.

One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp

We're listening to:

Story of the World Volume 1 after about a four month hiatus. Oh the things we homeschoolers get away with!

I am Thinking:

About school plans for next year.

On my iPod:

About 95% of what I do online is on my ipod!

Towards a Real Education:

Jonathan finished his 9th grade English class this week!! Hooray! He has only one more chapter of Physical Science left. He's got quite a bit of Spanish and Geometry left but with two classes out of the way those will go a lot faster.

Madi is going to be a part of an American History and Literature co-op next year that I am thrilled about. She is just days away from finishing her science and then Career Education will go faster. She is on a major reading kick right now.

Jake is looking forward to American History next year too. He only has a few more weeks of math and spelling left for this year, and he's reading A to Z Mysteries like there's no tomorrow.

To Live the Liturgy...

Holy Thursday Mass tonight. Tomorrow is Good Friday and we will watch The Passion of the Christ which has been our tradition for quite a few years now. Madi is singing on Easter Sunday, and we will celebrate with lots of chocolate!!

I am Hoping and Praying:

For Jake as he prepares for his First Communion.

In the Yard:

We now have an above ground pool!!! (hence the sand) It is great!!

In the House:

I just got a teething toddler dropped off to me and he is sitting calmly on my lap as I type this.

From the Kitchen:

Chicken and Rice last night. Baked stuffed shrimp tonight. Clam Chowder tomorrow.

One of My Favorite Things:


A Few Plans for the Week:

I can only handle looking one day at a time at this point. The major business of the spring is upon us.

You are reading that series fast!! That's how it was when I read it, I call it christian crack. We've been trying to get through Story of the World Volume 2 all year and are only on Ch. 17. I've decided that I'm going to read a chapter every day for the rest of the year so we can finish it up. I doubt they will retain as much but at least we can finish. Love the pool, can't wait to try it out.
