For Today - October 4, 2010

Outside my skies & sunny.  Not sure where that predicted thunderstorm is.  We've been told everyday since Friday that we were getting one in our area     . 

I am thinking...about the relaxing evening I have planned...can't wait! 

I am thankful for...answered prayer.  My son got a job! Not the one he was hoping would contact him, but at least he is working. 

I am remembering...Avery's face as my son drove away with her today to take her back to Lisa.  She was calling out "I don't want to leave you!"  I hurt for her. 

On my MIL.  She was diagosed with inoperable lung cancer last Friday. 

I am pondering these words..."God gives us dreams one size too big, so that we can grow into them." 

From the learning rooms...back to learning more about my camera, & loving it. 

From the kitchen...always in use -I think Elliot & Emily are going through a growth spurt! 

I am wearing...floral capris & white tshirt.

I am MIL asked me for lots of pictures, so I am creating a photo montage for her. 

I am get ready & go off to the grocery store in a bit. 

I am Bible & True Compass. 

I am hoping...after further tests, my MIL gets better news than what they are thinking. 

I am hearing...Dora in the background. 

Around the house...signs of fall are inside, even though it may not look it outside.  I love my fall decorations. 

One of my favorite things...relaxing in the evening with one of my favorite shows. 

A few plans for the rest of the up from having Avery this past week, homeschool, work on my MIL's pictures, clean out our large closet, & as always - enjoy my family. 

Here is a picture thought I am sharing...we had to go on the other side of town on Saturday, & of course it was raining there - in fact, storming.  We couldn't get out of the car until it had died down.  When we did get out, Emily was thrilled that she & Avery could finally use the umbrella that she's carried around in our car for over a year. When we got back up to our side of town - sunny & blue skies.
