What I'm thinking: That I would love to go play tennis more. My Sweetie and I got to play yesterday and I realized what good exercise it is (by how sore I am today), and how much fun it can be.
What I'm reading: The Age of Opportunity by Paul David Tripp. I am excited to read about heart issues and adolescents.
What I'm listening to: God With Us by Mercy Me. '....You know our hearts don't deserve Your glory, still you show a love we cannot afford...'
What we're learning: This is my school planning week. We start our new school year next Tuesday and I am still missing 3 books. (Hurry up UPS....) I also need to plan for the co-op and make sure I have all our school supplies; like paper, pencils, glue and those cute little pencil sharpeners.
What I'm watching: The 4 male rabbits lazing around doing absolutely nothing but eating my food. Truly, they are not doing me any good and since no one wants to buy them, I am probably going to give them away this week.
What's cooking: This week I am making Artichoke, Spinach and Feta stuffed pasta shells; served with marinara and pasta, french bread and a green salad. A nice glass of Merlot rounds out the flavors.
What I'm buying: I'm headed this week to a local homeschooling store to get one last writing book for Dasher and some flashcards. And walking into this store is like being in a candy shop, so I am really going to have to watch myself.
What I'm thankful for: For the leadership in our church. They work very hard and sacrifice much to guide, encourage and teach the congregation.
What I'm creating: I took lots of photos yesterday at the park so I am planning to spend some time editing them.
What I'm praying: Pleading prayers to God about the mom in our congregation who was just diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer. Prayers for her husband and 4 children as they make some decisions this week.
What I'm planning: This week I have a couple reviews to write, I am spending a day doing school planning, then a friend and her daughter are going to come hang out at the pool with us one day. Next weekend we are spending up at our friend's; then a church Labor Day party on Monday.
What we did this last weekend: We had a nice day around the house on Saturday. We recently got some more Dutch Blitz cards and now 5 of us can play, so we had Dutch Blitz Wars Saturday night. Sunday we heard a great sermon on I Thes. 5:12-13 and those who labor among us, then that afternoon was our church's last summer picnic. My Sweetie, Mr. Lego and Bookworm were in a flag football game, the other girls picked blackberries and I played volleyball.
What I'm looking forward to: I am really looking forward to school starting. I'm planning to blog about my curriculum choices soon and also a new challenge I am taking up.
