Outside my window…already 79 degrees (about as warm as I like it) at 5:42 a.m. Looks hazy out.

I am thinking…the cookout at my sister's yesterday. She had the lawn sprinkler going and two kiddie pools filled, and the kids had a blast. I did hardly anything. The food was great and the company was great.

I am thankful for…homeschooling. Not just because I want my kids to be unaffected by the prevalent culture, but because they are growing so fast, and I want to have them with me as much as possible before they go off to forge their own lives.

From the kitchen...Blueberry muffins and canteloupe.

I am creating…still on the wool soaker. It is much bigger than I had thought it would be. May not fit Gemma for a year!

I am readingThe Splendor of Sorrow. Wonderful meditations on the Seven Sorrows of our Blessed Mother. Only $2.00 from Sophia Institute Press, and I highly recommend it!

I am hoping…More work to come in for Bret. He is installing the altar at St. Helen's today, and there isn't much work following it.

I am hearing…birds. And Nuala's cowbell as she chews. Kids are amazingly all asleep.

A few plans for the rest of the week…haircuts for Bret and the boys, meals for the freezer, washing of new cloth diapers (they should be here in a day or two) and lesson plan forms drawn up, as the ones available online just don't work for me. I need to customize them.

The children are...asleep. And looking forward to watching a couple of videos they borrowed from their aunt.

A Picture Thought: Adrian was completely wiped out after an afternoon of sun and water. He fell asleep thus while watching a cartoon video.Visit Peggy at the Simple Woman for more Daybook entries.

  1. Do you use Seton curriculum, Nadja? I've always been a pretty laid back homeschooler, but I'm seriously considering starting the kids with Seton next school year. I'm looking for input from someone who's used it.

    Love the picture of Adrian!! If I given the chance, I could have done something just like that yesterday. :D
