The Simple Woman's Daybook

For Today, Monday June 21st, 2009...

Outside my window... it looks... hopeful.

I am thinking... about the end of the school year. This is our last week and it feels so good. We have learned and accomplished much. It feels very satisfying.

From the learning rooms... this is it, Week 34. Just wrapping up loose ends and a little study on Alexander the Great. Kurt finished he spelling book last week and was so proud! Leisl is just about done with her math. Brigitta and I will be working on her math more this summer but she is in the fractions section now and loves it.

I am thankful for... the 'buy one get one free' offer at Photoworks when I made our yearbook last week. I expect it to arrive this week. I'm also very thankful for my husband and my Dad. They are both great Dads and godly men.

I am wearing...a plaid sundress from Old Navy and a little shrug over top.

I am reading... my new Teacher's Manual for the 2009-2010 school year! Rome to the Reformation-- oh yeah.

I am hoping... that my cousin Jessica safely delivers a healthy baby. She went to the hospital last night in labor. This is her first baby and she is a young, young mom.

I am creating... cleanliness in place of the current chaos.

I am praying... for contentment. I've been "itchy" to "do" something and need to be content to keep doing the next right thing and trust that I'm exactly where I'm supposed to be and doing what I'm called to do.

Around the house... we start our new summer schedule and have to get used to it. I would really like the house to be in good shape before we leave on vacation.

One of my favorite things... taking down the whiteboard that is in the kitchen at the end of the school year. I put it up the week before we start school and just doing that little thing helps to prepare us to start school again.

A few plans for the rest of the week... a pretty mellow week ahead as far as I know. Leisl has an eye appointment on Friday.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...

I was five years old in this picture and me being on my dad's shoulders was the best.
