Simple Woman's Daybook

Outside my window...the beautiful sunshine and warm weather.  And pollen.  Don't forget the pollen.

I am thinking...that I'm in big trouble because my daughter is not even 10 and the drama and attitude is about to put me in the crazy house.

I am thankful for...Girls' Weekend At The Beach!!! (See above!)

From the learning room...Transcontinental Railroad, 7s times tables, spelling words, pronouns, poems, and drama. :)
From the kitchen...fresh veggies and fruit from the farmer's market. Yay!!

I am wearing...green and purple pjs. Yes it's almost 11 AM, don't judge.

I am going...to take the kids to Carowinds even though my daughter's attitude might tempt me to leave her there.  It's called grace.  And also I don't want to be stuck here with her all day. ha!
I am reading...Eighth Shepherd by Bodie & Brock Thoene (series that my mom got me started reading)

I am hoping...that I will maintain my positive attitude and good mood all day long.  Some days it's a struggle.  (Who am I kidding with the 'some'?)

I am hearing...the hum of the computer, Hayes playing, and Becca singing along with her MP3 player (O, Happy Day!).  Almost makes up for the 'tude.

Around the house...kids doing school, dishwasher washing, toys on the floor. 

One of my favorite things...my parents' beach house.  I'm so stinking excited to go!  Added bonus, I get to see a bloggy-turned-real-life friend while I'm there!

A few plans for the rest of the week:  park with friends, washing clothes, packing, travel, then beach, sun, lots of laughing and talking and reading and oh my word I'm so excited!!
A Picture to Share:

What's a Star Wars birthday party without light sabers?  And can you believe I was the sucker who bought them?  I blame it on a weak moment at Party City.

Thanks for your kind words on my blog way back in November! I was revisiting the post I wrote when my daughter prayed to accept Christ because she is going to be baptized in a few weeks. I just found your sweet comment! Love this post and your children are beautiful!

Hi, I just hopped over from the Simple Woman's Daybook. Your entry was so enjoyable to read.

I, too, homeschool~ a 9 year old girl, and a 5 year old boy. We also have a 17 month old girl. We're having a little bit of problem with attitudes, too! I keep thinking of that kids' song, "Kids Under Construction."

I will have to come back and visit you again. I really like the title of your blog...a good reminder that this ole' world is not our final destination! :)
