Outside my window ~
Breezy, warm temperatures.
Last Wednesday, Miss Sally and I took all of the quilts to the coin-operated laundry mat. We were able to line-dry some while others dried in the dryer at home.
I am thankful for ~
* gorgeous homecoming weather
* our daughters (in their homecoming dresses)
I am reading ~
I am on the hunt for another book. I have some on my Goodreads "to read" list that I need to revisit.
From the school room ~
* Last week we were on fall break.
* Lots of fun, fall pre-school crafts!!
I am praying for ~
* our country
* an end to abortion
* my family
Around the house ~
A local Youth and Government (home school) Club puts on an annual homecoming dance for home school teens in the DFW area as a fund raiser.
This year, there was a whopping 700 tickets sold!!
Almost everyone goes in a group. No one "needs" a date to go. An awesome concept!!
(The girls with Sally's best friend, Miss M.)
Miss Ester did have a young man ask her to homecoming.
He first called David, asking permission to ask Miss Ester. Can you imagine how nerve wracking that was?! (That made Ester feel like a queen.)
David said, yes, but with the stipulation they go with a group. (Our girls are not allowed to date yet.)
This group of five, fun high schoolers met up with another group of their friends for dinner.
From the kitchen ~
I recently added this recipe for a delicious peanut butter cake filling.
There was this delicious oatmeal chocolate chip cookie bar recipe Miss Ester made not too long ago.
I am listening to ~
* working men outside through the backyard. Apparently, the neighbors are having a screened-in porch built. I love that idea!
