daybook, january 25th

Outside my window...it is cold, and it is snowing...just barely, but it's snowing nonetheless

I am thinking...about what our goals are for our girls...what goals the girls have for themselves...will they line up...does it matter if they don't...I don't know about this teenager stuff...it's pretty hard...and even harder when you throw God in the mix...OK, so I don't 'throw' God anywhere...but raising a Godly teenager is hard...well, not really, because our teenager is a good kid...but one day...
 
I am thankful for...good health
 
From the learning rooms...a little Chinese history, adding -ing, and birds...I'm kind of tired of birds
 
From the kitchen...cereal for breakfast, leftovers for lunch, and I have no idea what's for dinner...I'm working hard in the kitchen today

I am wearing...jeans and my purple sweater wrap (yes, purple...it's one color I don't mind to wear)

I am creating... ... ... ... ... ... ... ...

I am going...I may start going to a Mom's Book Club this Thursday, "Fat souls are better than clean floors." or it may be postponed by one week (the hostess has company this week)

I am reading...The Well Trained Mind, Ch. 16, "Why 1492? History and Geography," in hopes of finding a way to 'beef up' Kylie's History studies. I'm thinking we're going to use Outlining again (which TWTM explains in depth), add in some memorization (Declaration of Independence and Preamble to the Constitution), and TWTM's Notebooking is so thorough...

I am hoping...the house stays quiet for just a little while
 
I am hearing...the fan, TJ breathing (he's asleep, on the floor, in front of the fireplace...a new favorite spot of his)

Around the house...superclean, after all the after-sickness disinfecting

One of my favorite things...read aloud time. Give me a good book, and my babies, and I'm good!

A few plans for the rest of the week...ballet, (maybe) our Mom's Book Club, and The Last of The Mohicans Friday night
