Sunday Daybook entry 7


Love watching my boys play baseball! 2 playing this year is keeping us busy!


Outside my window...
  The day is almost over and I'm just now getting a minute to sit down. Its been a busy Sunday for us.

I am thankful for...
  My DH who stepped in for me this weekend when I wasn't feeling well. He actually came home early from his retreat to take care of the kids and keep up with the chores.

I am thinking about...
  How I'm going to manage all the activities and normal routine this week. 

In the schoolroom...
   Reality says...we're really winding down the year. Kids are finishing books. Some won't get finished. That's ok too, for some subjects. Some books will carry over to the next year and some will get replaced with 'a better fit'. 

From the kitchen...
  Meals are planned for the week ahead! Yay me!! Keeping it simple this week. We have a lot going on and I leaving town.

I am creating...
  I wish I could be creating...(is what this line should say)
I want to scrap book online more. I want to learn to knit REALLY well. I want to teach my girls to scrap book and sew, better (They all know how to do a little bit of both). Oh to have more time in a day.

I'm working on...
  Balance! I feel like my whole life my goal is to 'strike balance' in all things. Helping the kids be balanced in school, activities, eating right, sleeping enough, etc. And managing these things for myself also. I feel like balance is key to a lot of things.

I'm reading...
  Still not doing much of this lately, but still have The Ministry of Motherhood in my night stand. DH and I are going to our Alma Mater this weekend. I'm going to get some reading done while I'm away. Let's face it I need quiet to read and it just ain't quiet around here very often or long enough to really get the reading done.

I'm praying for...
  My SIL in Texas who is due any day with #6. Her last one was born VERY quickly at home. Here's to another good story! Cheers!

I'm hearing...
  The movie Toy Story is on in the other room. That's what I hear at the moment. Here lately I've been tuned in to the hundred of birds chirping in the early morning hours. Even though I struggle getting out of bed some mornings...I do enjoy hearing the birds. They make me smile.

Around the house...
  DH took the kids with him today to pick up #2 from a camping trip. I was super mom and buzzed around picking things up. Got the kitchen squared away, counters wiped clean, floors mopped, one of the bathrooms cleaned. I was productive without toddlers around.
