Outside my Window...beautiful green trees, a blue sky, and it's raining!

I am thinking...I feel so bad for Izzy and Noah, taking swimming lessons this morning at an outside pool when it's only 57 degrees!

I am thankful ... that at least I could afford these lessons! $10 for two kids for two weeks is pretty good! These are also from the American Red Cross which is new for us and while the swimming technique has been average, the safety instruction has been superb.

From the kitchen...sloppy joes and chips for Izzy's BD!

I am creating...a birthday party! For my beautiful Isadora!

I am try to get some upper body exercises in today, but I am mainly going to concentrate on getting ready for Izzy's party.

I am capris and a peach knit shirt that a lady gave me last week from church. In fact she gave me so many clothes that I shared them with my neighbor lady who NEVER has a chance to get clothes for herself, but is always buying for her kids. She works as a hotel maid, so these shirts were almost new looking and she could even wear some of them to work.

I am reading...For the Love of Literature, but almost done with that

I am get Sam back on the right track with his summer schooling!

I am hearing... the whir of this big exhaust fan!

Around the house...still working on that basement!

One of my favorite things...Rosie's nap time! Me thinks this will continue to be my favorite thing for a while.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week...Do reading and math with everyone every day and to start Sam on his government class and to get to my transcribing income goals for the pay period.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing for you...

  1. It's wonderful when little ones take naps. My kids used to say, "I'm not tired", and I would say, "Yes you are", and within a few minutes they would be asleep, praise the Lord.

  2. Swimming lessons for $10 ? That is totally unfair.. I have Alex signed up for his first lessons at the end of July and it is over $30 for one child and only two weeks of lessons.. man, I wish I could find a good deal like you did Elena.. oh the joys of a very small town:)

  3. Swim lessons for kids are so important. I never learned but saw that my children did. I wouldn't mind the cooler temperatures and the rain would be nice.

    Happy Birthday to Izzy.
