The rains have stopped (for now), and our lakes are full to the brim (thank God)! Blue skies reign.
I am thankful for ~
~ My children
What I am reading ~
Still nothing. Our plates have been full, and I fall into bed exhausted these days.
From the school room ~
~ Schooling outside in the sunshine
~ The older three have just two weeks left.
~ I have ordered our CAT achievement tests for Ester, Mabel, and Stan. They will take them starting the week of May 18.
~ Selfie attempt and nice-old-lady-walking-by attempt
Around our house ~
~ Youth group has kept us incredibly busy with fund raising for the mission trip in June. Miss Sally and Miss Ester will both be attending this year.
~ Crop duster. (It came so close to clipping the rooftops.)
~ David surprised Stan the Man last Friday when he arrived home early from work and took Stan bow fishing up on the Red River.
(White Amur a.k.a. grass carp but really no relation to carp.)
(My three older girls and a neighbor girl washed my van for me over the weekend.)
From the kitchen ~
Stan the Man planned our dinner last Sunday. He chose Chicken Alfredo with Angel Hair Pasta and steamed corn ;)
I am praying for ~
~ All those who are receiving the sacraments of First Holy Communion and Confirmation this spring
~ All those who are graduating
~ For all those who have asked me to pray for them
I am listening to ~
Miss Clementine is playing with some old Polly Pockets of her sisters. I just LOVE her little imagination and her sweet voice!
Coming down the pike this week ~
~ Monday - Art class for Miss Sally and Miss Ester
~ Monday - Archery for Stan and Miss Mabel (It was moved up since we are expected to get more rain on Tuesday.)
~ Tuesday - Going away dinner for a dear home school friend of mine. (The thought of her moving really breaks my heart.)
~ Saturday - Day in the country as we visit some friends on their ranch.
Final Photo(s) to share ~
The child only wears dresses. (This is her newest and I think it is over-the-moon adorable. From Zulily.)
Wishing you all a fantastic week!
