Monday Musings

What I'm thinking: That I am getting older. After a weekend of tubing, wakeboarding, giant slip-sliding, and river swimming, I am one sore lady.

What I'm reading: I just finished a book titled Damn Few by Rorke Denver. He is a Navy Seal instructor and was also an actor and advisor in the movie Act of Valor. A great read.

What I'm listening to: Right now David Garrett is playing beautiful violin music on Spotify.

What we're learning: One more week and school begins! I am pretty much ready...except for planning out our writing class in co-op (Student Intensive from IEW). Last week of summer break!

What's cooking: This week I am making Mediterranean Wraps, grilled chicken, and Japanese buckwheat noodles.

What I'm thankful for: I am very thankful for an automatic washer and dryer. Can you imagine what it must have been like 100 years ago?

What I'm creating:  Each year in 4H the kids prepare a 5-8 minute speech with visual boards and discussion answers. I have always wanted to teach them how to use Power Point and teaching them in 4H would be a good place to do it. So this next year I am going to lead a presentation project for our club. I need to figure out a lesson plan and decide what to focus on because our 4H year starts in September. And of course I need to learn about Power Point.

What I'm planning: I am planning to edit the photos I took at the Delta this last weekend. We had lots of fun and I love documenting our adventures with my camera.

What we did this last weekend: Like I said, we were at the Delta. We went with two other families and had a blast playing in the water. Kind of our last fling before we get back into school.

What I'm looking forward to: I am looking forward to my mother in law coming for a visit this week. I am also looking forward to starting school. We seem to always accomplish so much more when we are on a schedule.

A picture to share:
