For Today...Tuesday, October 5, 2010

Outside my window...Fall!  Cool temperatures (only up to 71 today!) and the beginnings of falling leaves.  Still very, very dry, though.  Praying for rain!

I am thinking...about how to make independent work time work for Olivia.  I need to not have to do it all with her, but it’s not working for me to leave it all up to her.  Praying for a solution.

I am thankful for...a preschooler!  It makes teaching the older two so much easier!

I am wearing...jeans, black short-sleeve top, hair down, feet bare.

I am creating...photo organization in preparation for creating photo calendars.

I am remembering...

I am going...to get fall clothes out soon.  Hopefully before it really gets cold!

I am reading...still just the kids’ school stuff.  Still need to remedy that.

I am hoping...for exciting news about a perfect offer on our house.  Soon.

I am hearing...a ticking clock; the faint whir of the ceiling fan; the distant sound of Angie and Steven playing together on the other side of the house; the scratching of Olivia pencil against her paper.

On my mind...friends who also need their houses to sell.

From the learning rooms...South America; the Gold Rush; inventions; introduction to electricity.

Noticing that...Olivia and I frequently tend to be scatterbrained on the same days.  Wondering what the common factor is – does one cause the other, or are both of us influenced by something else?  Something to pray about.

From the kitchen...today was Parmesan Chicken Cordon Bleu, and it was a HUGE hit!  Even picky, slow-eating Steven had his plate cleared and was asking for seconds before I was half-way done!

Around the house...fall decor, no AC running, sheepskin house shoes making their appearance.

One of my favorite things...fall!! (I’m sure I’ve never mentioned that before!)

A few plans for the rest of the week...fun free activities coming up!  Friday night is opening night of a model train display at the Historic Arkansas Museum.  Then Saturday morning is the air show at Little Rock Air Force Base in Jacksonville.  Anyone want to join us?

A picture worth sharing...one of the best ways to tease the kids is to take their stuffies and do funny things with them.  Here’s Angela’s Cowabella ready for a BBQ!

Oh, enjoy Autumn for us! Break out the apples and the cloves and cinnamon and drink lots of apple cider and jump in the leaves :-)

Hurray for fall!

And hoping for your house to sell...
