For Today - September 6, 2010

Outside my window...the sun has just set.  It's such a beautiful evening tonight. 

I am thinking...fall will soon be here!   

I am thankful for...this past week with Avery.  She was so happy to see us, & we filled every single day with fun & memories. 

I am remembering...Avery telling us "I don't wanna leave you!", when it was time for her to leave today.  We told her that she will be back very soon, & that seemed to help her. 

On my mind...all that I want/need to do after not having a whole lot of extra time when Avery was here. 

I am pondering these words...Emily told me that she wants to answer this one - so here's her answer. :-)  "I am thinking of the words "It's time for bed!", because I am sleepy. :-) 

From the learning rooms...learning lots about my new toy. 

From the kitchen...quiet & clean.  We went out to dinner tonight (Mimi's), & it was so good! 

I am jean capris & white top. 

I am school time memories for Elliot & Emily. 

I am relax tonight & get caught up with computer things.  I've not been able to be on it much over the past week or so, & I've missed it. 

I am Bible & children's books to Elliot & Emily. 

I am hoping...Avery does okay tonight...she wasn't happy about having to leave her Daddy today. 

I am hearing...Emily playing a game beside me. 

Around the house...soooooo quiet after having had Avery this past week.  She 'never' stops! 

One of my favorite things...sinking into bed after a long day. 

A few plans for the rest of the week...homeschool, clean house, grocery shop, relax. 

Here is a picture thought I am sharing...the kids love getting a popcicle while they bath, after playing hard.  Avery loved being a part of this while she stayed here this past week.  This picture of her will be one of our sweet summer memories -
