Beautiful, beautiful weather!
I Am Thankful For
~ My home school mom friends.
~ My Confirmation students. They are the best!
~ Your prayers! My mom says that her hand continues to heal beautifully.
~ My husband and all that he does to provide for our family.
I Am Thinking About
~ Miss Clementine's birthday at the end of the month…our baby is going to be 2! Her first two years have gone by crazy fast!
~ Her scrapbook. (Which I only began this weekend.) I always start the scrap books with their ultra sound pictures, but in her case…
…I needed 13 different ultra sound appointments while pregnant Clementine. (And we never found out her gender - I was determined not to :)
~ Potty training. Once my kids start dressing and undressing themselves, that is their sign that they are typically ready to potty train. Clementine has reached that point now.
~ I really need to work on a new header picture for my blog.
From The School Room
~ We had a decent start to our second semester last week.
~ The harder we worked and prayed, the more monkey wrenches the devil threw at us.
~ Stan began First Communion Catechism and we are using The New St. Joseph First Communion Catechism, found here.
From The Kitchen
I posted two new recipes that we tried over the weekend. Thanks to Jen, we had a delicious Meatless Taco Soup (Crock pot style.)
And those awesome Snickerdoodle Bars that Jamie Jo introduced my family to.
Tonight…pizza and salad. (Ha ha! What a let down after the weekend!)
What I Am Reading
~ Following Mary To Jesus, found here.
I Am Praying For
~ My father-in-law
~ All those special intentions I have been asked to pray for.
~ My friend, Tiffany, who will be leaving this weekend on her pilgrimage.
~ Persistence in our home school. (The third quarter always proves to be the hardest.)
I Am Listening To
The non stop wind. It is strong…early in the season, too. We usually get these winds in the spring. Mabel was eating lunch Sunday afternoon when she yelled, "The neighbor's fence just blew down!"
Around My House & Pictures To Share
~ Sally received Swimmer of the Month Award! (She worked HARD to earn it while working on her come back after being off four months from her knee injury.)
~ Watching big brother play out in the back yard. (I miss seeing cute baby legs and bare feet that are usually hidden on winter clothing.)
~ Saturday morning craft class at Michael's. We took a couple of friends this time.
(They sketched and painted their own masterpieces.)
Wishing you all a blessed and fruitful week!
~ Patty ~
