Thoughts For This Week

Out my window... I see a beautiful blue jay! We have several birds that call our backyard home.

In our homeschool this week... we are continuing on with Saxon Math. The kids spend a lot of time reading each day and my little guy particularly enjoys looking at his Civil War magazine and having me read Sam the Minuteman to him daily.

Places we've been... We took the kids to a local amusement park at the beginning of the week. It is always a fun time there! My little girl is at VBS this week and is having a blast. I also took advantage of the great sale at Office Depot this week and stocked up on some great school supplies!

People we saw... I was glad to see my friend Ruth again! Oh, and the UPS man is fast becoming a daily visitor, as all our homeschool materials have started arriving!

My favorite thing this week...listening to our oldest playing on the piano. She plays with such gentle hands and I genuinely enjoy listening to her throughout the day.

Things I'm working on... I am reading through some of the various textbooks that have come this week and I am getting more things printed out for next year.

I'm reading... The Tree of Freedom

I'm grateful for...air conditioning!

I'm praying for...the Lord to give me an answer to some questions I have and for Him to provide me with the right words.


  1. Love the photo of your girls:) It is exciting to get all the new curriculum and planning the new school year:) Hope the heat wave eases up for you I hear it is really bad this year:(

  2. The picture is actually my little girl and boy!!! Yes, he loves playing dress-up with his sisters. Too cute... and I know this will soon pass and he will not want to do those things with them anymore. They grow up too fast...
