FOR TODAY...October 19, 2009
Outside my window...sun popping up over the Pacific and the heavens declaring the glory of God in brilliant color
I am thinking...about my friend Gayly. Her family is headed to Washington D.C. so her husband can run a marathon to raise money for Love Without Boundaries. Go Shawn!
I am thankful for...the SITAG generator that kicks in when Honiara's power goes off
I am wearing...turquoise cotton pajamas
I am remembering...my grandfather whose birthday is tomorrow. Happy birthday!
I am going...to enjoy lots of company this week as we try to have each SITAG family over one more time before we leave
I am reading...Sonlight's Core 5 lesson plans. We will be starting Cores 5 & K in December and I'm trying to have all my ducks in a row before we leave for Marulaon.
I am hoping...and praying that Aaron and Benjamin have a great trip to Australia and get a good doctor's report.
On my mind...keeping an intentionally slow pace to allow room in our family for creativity, helping others, etc.
From the learning rooms...History - Truman Doctrine, Korean & Vietnam wars, civil rights movement, Sarah - finding volume, Benjamin - hours, minutes, & other units of time, Olivia - addition within 100, Katherine - sorting and matching colors, etc.
Noticing that...two year olds fill me with joy and wonder and laughter
Pondering these words... "Live simply. Love Generously. Care Deeply. Speak Kindly. Leave the rest to God."~Ronald Reagan
From the kitchen...breakfast casserole and cubed papaya to start the day, tuna salad & crackers with tomato slices and the last of the carrot sticks (no more in town) for lunch, and curried lentils with gingersnaps for dessert all made by chef Olivia
Around the house...a game of Express in between hands (wondering who will win?), packing for the trip to Australia, coloring pages of MLK strung up next to excellent handwriting samples
One of my favorite things~ grateful children
From my picture journal...
the view out the window this morning
