Daybook - November 9, 2009

For Today...

November 9, 2009

Outside my window... right now it's dark out.  But today was overcast and gloomy for the most part.  We also got quite a bit of rain courtesy of Tropical Depression Storm no, Hurricane ahhh...whatever it is Ida.  Fortunately it looks like we're not going to get hit with it.

I am thinking...that I can't wait for Advent.  I have so many projects planned!  Then again...maybe I CAN wait...I have SO many projects planned :)

I am thankful for...our health.  So many are sick right now.

From the learning rooms... working hard so we can take a week (or more) off for Thanksgiving.  The Professor is back to adding 2 & 3 digit numbers with carrying, is starting the lessons on sin in the Baltimore Catechism and is finishing up dental health in science.  Velcro Boy and Doodlebug finished reviewing letters A-L and are now on "M".  It's amazing how well they're learning the letters.  There are even several others we haven't come to yet that Velcro Boy already knows.  I'm thinking of starting the Alphabet path.  I've seen some really interesting ideas on several blogs.

From the kitchen...basil chicken for supper.  Tomorrow... hamburgers!

I am wearing... tan shorts, burgundy short-sleeves, naked toes.

I am creating...a Jesse Tree!  I've been meaning to do this for several years, but never gotten around to it.  Joseph is done! 

I am drive myself nuts the next few weeks trying to get all this done.

I am reading...several things.
1. MOM's a Personal Journal by Paula Hagen and Vickie LoPiccolo Jennett. This is a study course to help us realize the importance of our ministries as mothers.

2. Full of Grace by Johnnette S. Benkovic. This is another study course to help deepen our appreciation and understanding of the Catholic faith, recognize the strength of prayer and the power of obedience.

The latest issue of Family Foundations.

I am finish getting some pictures hung up around the house.  We got new pictures of the boys a few months ago recently and I have yet to get them posted.

I am hearing...a debate discussion regarding the new healthcare policy.

Around the more Halloween.  On to Thanksgiving crafts and planning for hosting dinner for 15-18 people.  I know...not a very big group, but big enough for me. 

One of my favorite things...seeing the light of understanding in my son's eyes when he finally gets something that he's been struggling with.

A few plans for the rest of the week: hanging pictures, school, grocery shopping, Women of Grace meeting.

Here is picture thought I am sharing...

Aren't they cute?!?

  1. My home schooling days have passed,the children have grown and oh how I miss them! We share so many memories of those years and the kids laugh and say 90% of school was about Religion some how some way.So please don't get too stressed out and remember the Holy Spirit will guide you through it and show you what He wants you to do just try to keep in the State of Grace and all will be fine.


Thank you for taking the time to read my blog. I enjoy reading your comments.
God Bless!
