Looking out my window…  nearly all our Christmas snow is gone and the kids were out playing with just jackets this evening.  They say we’ve got more snow and cold coming though. Hopefully it won’t cause trouble with our travel plans (we leave here on Monday).

I am thinking… about how best to ‘do school’ as we travel and how to pack the kids’ clothes. I think it would be beneficial to have another small suitcase.

I am thankful… for a truly wonderful husband who has been doing an amazing job as ‘Mr. Mom’ and substitute teacher these last two months allowing me to focus on resting and taking care of Elaina.

One of my favorite things… is playing computer games with my family.

I am creating… a dress for Lydia by making and attaching a skirt to a shirt we found.

I am wearing… jeans! It feels good to be wearing something other than the thin stretchy maternity pants.

I am reading… through several free ebooks that I had apparently downloaded to my phone last summer.

I am hoping… that our trip to Colorado/Wyoming will be a good time of visiting with friends and churches (it’s always such an encouragement to visit those who have been praying for us) and be beneficial in generating new support for our ministry so we can meet our support goals before returning to Alaska.

I am learning… to count it all joy which is a real struggle in my current state of exhaustion.

In the kitchen… dough for Cottage Cheese rolls is chilling in the fridge.

In the school room… it’s neat to see how God works things out.  We ended the last school year by studying caves in science and then last summer God provided us with the opportunity to visit Carlsbad Caverns.  Now we are studying the atmosphere.  The project for the current lesson was supposed to be making and observing a barometer; something we tried a couple years ago without success.  Well, being here at the farm means the kids can instead observe and record info from my Grandpa’s real barometer.

I am hearing… Elaina hiccupping (thankfully not crying at the moment; she’s been extra fussy today), Dad typing, water dripping (Grandpa must have not turned the faucet off all the way again)

Prayer Requests:

  • We’ve got some residual coughs from this latest round of colds.  It would be nice to have them gone before we start this trip.
  • That Elaina would be a good traveler.
