Sunshine, blue skies, and low 80's. (Up to 87 by Saturday). I wish our pool was still open...
I am thankful for ~
Daughters who help with laundry and iron clothes.
Husbands who come home and make dinner when I'm still homeschooling.
Having good neighbors.
Blue skies and sunshine.

Field Trip rescheduled
I had organized a home school field trip to the Perot Museum of Nature and Science, which is located right in downtown Dallas. After the second nurse was confirmed to have Ebola last week, the majority of moms decided it would be best to cancel if not reschedule.
Considering this Ebola mess, the museum allowed us to reschedule till late April, 2015. No one lost out on their money.

From the kitchen ~
Thinking about starting my menu. Just thinking :)
Since it is going to be close to 90 this weekend, I'm going to keep things on the cooler side.
What I am reading ~
Since I read a religious book last time, I'm switching gears this time around.
The Kitchen House
My friend, Jen, recommended it, and it had a some good reviews online as well.
What I am praying for ~
* The victims of Ebola, especially the two nurses who had been diagnosed after taking care of Mr. Duncan.
* For our home school. That we, as a family, may continue to make great strides in our school year.
* For my husband who continues to work so hard in order to provide for our family and our vocation of homeschooling.
* For all those who have asked me to pray for them.
Around my house ~
Shoring up our plans for trick or treating and the All Saints party.
Coming down the pike this week ~
*Teach Confirmation class on Wednesday
*One child has a doctor appointment on Friday (downtown Dallas...rush hour traffic...yuck.)
*Troops of St. George camp out for the boys
* Miss Sally's birthday
What I am listening to ~
The big girls talking as they do the dinner dishes. Stan the man helping David outside with some yard work.
A picture to share ~

Have a great week!
