Outside my Window….blue sky, with hazy clouds over the mountains. A couple of new, as yet undiscovered, bird feeders are hanging from the tree.
From the learning rooms… Bumpy start to the week, children are coming down with colds and not very attentive. Piano lessons went very well though, such beautiful music being made :)
I am thankful for… friendships
From the kitchen… Enchiladas today, but I will be stewing a chicken and making some chicken soup tomorrow, with fresh Butterhorns to chase away those colds that seem to be brewing.
Twirling around needles…Mae is working on finishing her beautiful purple alpaca shawl. I don’t have any projects going at this time.
We're creating...Valentine's were made and Mailboxes were decorated on Saturday
I am reading…Age of Opportunity by Paul David Tripp, Feeding the Whole Family by Cynthia Lair
I am hearing…the tap of pastels being picked up and dropped back into the tray as Petal Rose works on a sketch.
Remembering…This past week’s sermon. And Dave Ramsey on the radio when the alarm went off this morning.
A few plans for the week…To accomplish a productive week of learning, get the house sparkling, pick up Builder from the airport!
One of my favorite things… morning hugs, from sleepy girls.
Pondering… Parents who understand that their children are not simply reacting to the facts, but are interpreting the facts in a way that gives them a particular shape and meaning, will ask good questions and be good listeners. For them, family conversation will take on a whole new meaning and purpose. From Age of Opportunity, chapter 3.
Scripture I am meditating upon…Romans 12:2 Do no be conformed any long to the patterns of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you will be able to prove the good and perfect will of God.
Scripture Memory work: Colossians 1:3&4 We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you, because we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love you have for all God’s people.
and continuing with Genesis chapter 1, verses 14-16
I leave you with a picture...
