For Today - August 30, 2010

Outside my window...dark & quiet, since this is another late night post.  Too busy today to make it here earlier. 

I am thinking...about how blessed we are! 

I am thankful for...great progress being made for my son in the custody arrangement for Avery. 

I am remembering...our school day was our first day back.  This is going to be a fun school year! 

On my mind...the 3 happy little ones upstairs asleep. 

I am pondering these words..."I am the LORD, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me?" Jeremiah 32:27 

From the learning rooms...I need to stay away from Ebay. :-) 

From the kitchen...closed up, after having passed out snacks 'all' evening to Avery. :-) 

I am jean capris & white top. 

I am creating...happy, happy days for the children. 

I am bed very soon.  It was a fun, full day. 

I am Bible & some magazines. 

I am have our best school year yet.  You would have thought it was Christmas, with the way that Emily was so excited about today, that she couldn't go off to sleep last night.  Ellliot - not too excited. :-) 

I am hearing...nothing but the keys as I type. 

Around the house...quiet, after a laughter filled evening. 

One of my favorite things...the laughter of Elliot, Emily, & Avery. 

A few plans for the rest of the all my housework caught up, so just planning some 'ease in' days of homeschooling, time at the park with the kids, & we're all going to enjoy this week with Avery. 

Here is a picture thought I am sharing...this is a scene that I love seeing, but one that we hadn't seen in over 5 weeks.  Elliot & Emily are thrilled that Avery will be here for a week!
