Outside my window...on again, off again showers, so the clothes have come in from the clothesline to dry on the porch
I am thinking...about Psalm 103:13-14 and being convicted by the question "Did I show loving compassion, comfort, and support, remembering my child's young and foolish heart, or did I unduly correct him and expect more of him than he could perform?"
From the learning rooms...History - WWII, D-day, Eisenhower, Sarah - drawing parallelograms & rhombuses, Benjamin - telling time & math review, Olivia - combining tens & ones, Science - creepy crawlies under the microscope, Language Learning - playing a game to help us sort & remember masculine, feminine, & neuter nouns and all of the ways they have to agree (sing/plural, verb affixes, number, etc.), PE - jump rope
I am thankful for...scented candles to help me imagine that it's autumn
From the kitchen...muffins & yogurt pops for breakfast, leftovers for lunch, and spaghetti for supper (with chef Olivia), nice & easy to start the week
I am wearing...denim wrap-around skirt & a pink plaid sleeveless shirt (both finds at the second hand store here in Honiara)
I am reading..."Mary on Horseback" by Rosemary Wells out loud with the kids
I am hoping...that we laugh as much today as we did yesterday!
I am hearing...neighbors hammering on their new roof, kids outside playing, the ubiquitous ceiling fan
Around the house...Christmas packages ready to be mailed to the States, potato stamped triangles and squares hanging up to dry, Katherine taking a nap
One of my favorite things...rainy days which melt into deliciously cool nights
A few plans for the rest of the week...beginning to preserve apples and carrots to take to Marulaon, hosting a family with a new baby for supper, baking cookies for afternoon tea for the SITBLP Grammar workshop
Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...
Kids reviewing their note names on the grand staff we constructed on the floor with blue tape, getting my visual, tactile, and aural learners by using flashcards and bells, too!
