Looking out my window… our rainy spring has turned into a HOT summer. These 90 degree temps are a bit too much for Alaska. The kids are enjoying running through the sprinkler though.
I am thankful… for this chance for our kids to get to know their cousins better. We are watching my sister Karen’s 3 kids and 2 dogs for the week while she and her husband are at a conference.
One of my favorite things… fresh strawberries straight from the garden.
I am creating… finally finished the cross-stitch part of this piece and am moving on to all the blackwork sections.
I am reading… working my way through Warriors Don’t Cry. It boggles my mind that people thought and acted that way. Matthew had a hard time with this book too; he has such a strong sense of right and wrong.
I am hearing… 6:15pm – kids playing outside, what sounds like someone spraying a hose, the microwave beep reminding me it’s finished, the construction sounds have finished for the day (they’ve been working on some underground pipes behind the school).
In the schoolroom… I’ve finished all the researching and now it’s time to order all the curriculum. I’m going to try a couple different things this year. Here’s hoping they prove to be a good fit with the changing dynamics of our family.
In the kitchen… thankful for the slightly cooler day since I needed to bake bread.
In the garden… had the first harvests of spinach and I think the leaf lettuce is ready too. Three strawberries have turned red so far which Scott and I enjoyed immensely. Here’s hoping the dogs don’t dig anymore of it up before they leave.
A moment from my week…
