I am hearing... Today was library day and we brought home a FULL 90 minute DVD of the SMURFS!! I have hardly heard a peep out of #2 son for over an hour now!! Makes me remember watching the show ages ago when my baby sister was little.
I am hoping... Hoping?? Yes I am!
From the learning rooms... Double digit addition. Leaning how to write sentences using a clue word. He is doing very well using regular pencils and paper. Looks like he isn't needing the big lined paper and fat pencils any longer. I need to be more diligent getting him to read a loud more. I am also looking at curriculum catalogs for next year. Three came in the mail today.
(after a blueberry flavored dum-dum sucker!!)
I am thankful for... I am thankful that I am on the downward side of our stay here. I am thankful for the wisdom God gives us and the ability to make choices.
From the kitchen... We bought chinese food on the way home from the library. YUM! Vegetable fried rice, chickenon a stick, General Tso's chicken and spicy noodles with vegetables (I forgot the name!)
You remember my sough dough project? Fantastic!!
I am wearing... On the way to library we stopped by SEARS. My son needed new pants. He is playing inside way too much and wearing out the knees in his pants. I think he has blown the knees out of 6 pairs in the last three weeks.
I needed female undergarments. I hate shopping for brassieres!! I know I am uniquely made. . . but really? I tried on about 20 brassieres and found only 2 styles that fit me right. I don't care for under wire, padding or bright colors. I just want something that holds it all together! And the expense!! I've tried shopping Wal Mart, Target, Victoria Secret, Marshall's, TJ Maxx and Burlington Coat Factory. I hardly ever find anything. Then when I find something, it looks like my Gramma picked them out!
Times 5 (($32.00x5= ?))
I am reading... Still reading my In a Heartbeat book. Haven't got any farther in it yet. Some mysteries are out on my nightstand as well.
I am praying... Praying that my boot-camp baby will get his choice places to go after boot camp. I am praying for the desires of my heart. For safety, for wisdom, for far away family.
I am creating... Not creating but thinking about creating. Still got that picture project on the back burner. Still thinking about rearranging my furniture. Thinking about doing something for me with part of our tax return. I will probably do a correspondence course for my Bachelor Degree of Biblical Education. It also made me think about things that are interesting to me. I've always been interested in Criminal Justice studies. I also think I'd do well studying for Christian Counseling. I don't see myself ever working in law enforcement or counseling but they would be interesting.
Some of my favorite things... Steak with baked potato and lots of butter
A few plans for the rest of the week... An afternoon with Chris, Sharon and baby Anastasia Saturday afternoon. I may go get bachelor David and bring him over for breakfast on Saturday and then take him to get his haircut Saturday morning.
Something to share... One day soon, I'll have a wedding to dress for. I have been looking for ideas and inspiration.
(I'd have to dye this last one to get the right color.)
What do you think?
Have a great weekend!!
