Simple Woman's Daybook

Outside my window...snow!!  I love love love snow.  I have such fun memories of snow days from my childhood. (Right, Ashleigh?)  And it's carried over to adulthood.  I get even more excited than my kids I think.

I am thinking...about a statistic I heard on The View, that a woman's eggs are 90% gone by the age of 30.  Whoa.  

I am thankful for...warm clothes and a warm house.  It's never far from my mind that these things are blessings and not rights. 

From the learning room...Robert Fulton, overviews of Indiana and Mississippi, 6s multiplication tables, art, science class, and spelling words. 

I am wearing...jeans, NC State long sleeved T-shirt, and 2 pairs of socks.  And longjohns.  And I'm still cold.

I am watch the LOST premiere tomorrow.  Can't wait!!!

I am reading...On the Banks of Plum Creek (to the kids).

I am hoping...this is not the only snow we get this year. 

I am hearing...the kids playing upstairs with neighbor kids.  No school today for the public school kids.  No such luck for mine. :)

Around the house...clean kitchen, clean bathrooms, vacuumed floors.  Yay!

One of my favorite things...snuggling with the kids while we read history. 

A few plans for the rest of the week:  Target group, basketball practice, trip to The Homeschool Room and lunch with friends, and who knows what else!



Go on over to the Simple Woman's Daybook blog for more daybook entries.

Oh come on Mom - take a day off from school! This I fear would do me in every single time if I were a homeschool Mom. I would have a hard time staying motivated.

The snow is so pretty! I just love it.

You are right Jen! Such wonderful childhood snow memories!! Nate and I were discussing those memories last night!

Snow on the groud automatically means no school in that goes for you too, right? It is too dangerous for the school bus, right?

I love your new blog look!!!Is that TRUE about the eggs?!?!? I didn't have Connorboo til I was 30!!! Then of course, we had trouble having Miss AK, so maybe it is true!!!! Hm.....hope you had a great day!! We have loved the snow, too, but ours is almost all gone!

This is a TEST one. But, hey the eggs thing...I had all three of my little dudes AFTER 30!! Guess I had a lot of eggs? And you even know when it all started for I must have had a LOT, huh? ;o)
