daybook, september 20th

Outside my Window... cloudy and chilly...but I don't mind
What We're Learning... we're in the midst of the Civil War and the Early Church
I am thankful for... a napping 4 year old (who seems to be coming down with something...not to mention his little brother, Benjamin, gave him a nice shiner!)
From the kitchen... pot roast, carrots, and mashed potatoes for dinner. We had turkey sandwiches for lunch (topped with lettuce and cut in half...which was a nice, little touch
I am wearing... gray sweat pants, yellow top
I am reading... Peter Pan to the kids and some background stuff on the Civil War
I am praying... that Wesley isn't coming down with anything, that my dad feels 100% soon, and that our little sponsor child is well
I am creating... a family calendar...I think we're about to become a little busier
I am hearing... silence, it's been a nice change
I am remembering... that silence doesn't always mean sleep...maybe I should go check on everyone!
On my mind... Christmas. We are simplifying Big Time this year
Noticing that... the kids probably won't care about any STUFF! we actually cut out of the Christmas Celebration...they always care more about the special things we do, than the 'cool' things they could get
One of my favorite things... fall. I'm elated it's finally here. Chili, pumpkins, hot tea, apple candles, scarecrows, mums ... ...
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week... Korinne wants to go to Knitting class tomorrow, we're going to Church tomorrow evening, the boys have a Lego-thingy at the library Thursday, the girls and I have been invited to a Baby Shower Thursday evening, Friday is the first day of fall...we'll be decorating, making chili and pumpkin pie and maybe watch "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" for Family Movie Night, Saturday Brian will be home All. Day. (yay!), Sunday we'll go back to church. ...And all of that, makes me smile :)
