Simple Woman's Daybook...March 23rd edition

For Today...

Outside my window... it is raining and 63 degrees. I have windows open and the front door open and it is wonderful! I absolutely LOVE rainy days. Something about them makes me feel fresh and new and clean. I guess just the thought of God giving us all a good washing. My Daddy always told me that I would probably end up living in Seattle...HA!!

I am thinking... about all the changes that are swirling around in my head...from rearranging the rooms to God dealing with me about continuing to simplify our lives even more. I keep thinking about that saying (it keeps popping up everywhere I go) "Live simply so that others may simply live" I think some wonderful changes are on the way...I'm excited!!!!

From the learning rooms... We are getting ready to do our Bible study in a few minutes and then some memorization. I don't think we will get too much done today beyond that. Some reading and math is about all we will do.

I am amazed at how Lili is picking up on things from just listening to her sister and I. When I am working with Aly, Lili is usually either sitting at the table coloring or playing with Lego's or on the floor beside us. So she hears everything and it all is soaking in. I was going over some Math facts (addition) with Aly the other day and Lili started answering them before Aly had the chance. I was blown away. But, then she really freaked me out when she walked through the room reciting the books of the Bible. She got up to Song of Solomon with little help at all. Heaven help us when I actively start teaching her stuff like that!!! I guess it is time to move beyond colors and numbers with her!! They are both just amazing and I am so blessed.

~Thank you God for my precious daughters!~

I am thankful for… the rain!!! We haven't had much at all in a long time and everything was pretty dry. I am also thankful for the opportunity to homeschool my children! God dealt with me a long time ago about homeschool and I am thankful for the gift that it is to our family!

From the kitchen... I am thinking homemade calzones. Yep...that sounds good!! I'll have to remember to ask David to stop and get me some more zuchini on the way home from gymnastics!!

I am wearing… my a late start this morning and haven't had the chance to get dressed. Ooops! you caught me :-)

I am reading... Reading??? I don't know how to read...unless it is a kids book!!!

I am hoping... that it rains all day today and that I can get some serious stuff done today!!!!

I am creating... some cute little knitted summer/cotton hats...embellished with beads or with ribbon or with sell. Anyone interested in them?? Aly wore one to the store the other day and we got lots of people stopping us to ask about it.

I am hearing... my dad make coffee (I know it is 11:30, but he drinks it all day long!!) and the girls discussing the difference between the basket ball and the beach ball in their playroom.

Around the house... David and I are considering switching the living room and the dining room. The main room of our house is the kitchen, living room and dining room...we kept the LR and DR as is, but now we are thinking that it might work better if we switch them around. I think it just might work!!!

We also got the playroom redone this past week. It looks amazing and now I can start slowly moving our homeschooling stuff in there so we aren't taking over the dining room any more!!!

One of my favorite things... Is RAIN!!!! Did I get that point across today??

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...
Aly loves to jump and she does it quite often. I think she is part Kangaroo!! I took this one last week at gymnastics. It happened so fast that I forgot to check the flash, but I kind of like the way it looks with her hair flying everywhere in the shadows.
