Last Monday of April

FOR TODAY April 27, 2009...

Outside my window...Chilly and breezy, big white clouds sailing by in a blue sky. Springtime has arrived. There are new ,tiny, green leaves on my maple tree outside my window.

I am thinking...about my little boy who's growing up far too fast - his birthday is coming up. I can't believe how fast time flies.

I am thankful crockpot!!! My little kitchen friend who helps me make dinners early in the morning when things are still relatively calm so that I can be freed up when things go crazy later :0)!!

From the learning rooms...The big boys are doing research papers and we little ones are looking at frontier life and the human body.

From the kitchen...Roast beef and brown rice, sauteed asparagus for dinner. Homemade yogurt and granola for breakfast and I don't know what's for lunch

Verse for today...Philippians 4:8 Brothers, continue to think about the things that are good and worthy of praise. Think about things that are true and honorable and right and pure and beautiful and respected. (Children's version as my son's Bible was closer :0)

I am creating...A birthday gift for someone I love tons and tons, my gardens are still in progress.

I am clean the bathrooms after this - icky job but most necessary!! I also need to get shopping done.

I am reading...A book a friend gave me - I don't remember the name and I'm too lazy to go get it :0)

I am hoping...My Dad's mastoiditis gets all cleared up so he can get out of the hospital today!! And that my Mom has a safe trip home from my sister's home in Washington D.C.

I am hearing...A lawn mower in the neighborhood and my husband snoozing here near me.

Around the house...Laundry and general tidy up

One of my favorite things...Fresh Rhubarb pie!!!

A few plans for the rest of the week: A regular week maybe - we may have my parents over night after my Dad gets discharged from the hospital. Also some birthday shopping as a little man in our home has a birthday at the very end of this week!!

Here is a picture I'm sharing: I think teaching manners to this little one may be a challenge :0) She never sits in her chair without putting her feet up!! Very funny!!

Thank you for all your kind words and thoughts. I can't truly express how relieved i am. That is the very same scripture from last week, and i think your'e right. It is the scripture for this time of my life.

I like the boy Ashleys' Daddy is letting her date very much. He told me months ago how he felt about her,he came over Christmas Eve, because his parents had gone on a trip, and he wasn't supposed to be at his Grandparents until 8:00p.m. it was also his birthday. He had a gift for Ashley, and i invited him to eat dinner with our family, he thanked me, and said, he always knew he could come here, even if it was a holiday...

My Granny is the most amazing woman in the world, i don't know who i would have been without her and my papaw love and support. They are truly godly people, and love me more than anyone deserves, and the ironic thing, she is no blood relation to me...She is my mothers best friend from church before i was born, and she "adopted"me into her heart and family. My husband always laughs when she calls because i am either doll, baby girl, or the princess.

Alexandra and Christian love the pictures of Esta as they call her.
