I am thinking...
about the homeschool high school dance we had on Saturday night. It was really awesome. We had Catholic homeschool high school kids from all over North East Ohio (and one from Michigan!) come together for an evening of food and fun. Some of these kids were good friends. Some of them barely knew each other, but for the most part everyone participated in the "swing dance" class that was taught beforehand and then everyone worked to fill up their dance card so that they would be eligible for great door prizes.

And the most amazing thing? The girl from Michigan, who didn't know most of the people there, won the doorprize! She filled up her dance card and even danced with a few of the chaperones. Very impressive!

I am thankful for...
the Catholic homeschool group in this area. We have been pretty inactive over the past four years after a major falling out, but lately I have felt called to get back on the steering committee and get the group more active again. Another former leader of the group is joining me. Looks like we're putting the band back together!

From the learning rooms...
We homeschool all year. So come Tuesday, we're hitting the books again. But don't let my kids whine about it too much. Homeschooling all year allows us to take the time off we need for illness or other emergencies that come up. It's a lot more stress free and we DO try to do more fun things inthe summer.

From the kitchen...

I am creating...
Last week I created little pianists who did great at their piano recital!
I am going...
clean my wood floors with Murphy's oil soap today! I love the smell of that with the summer breeze going through the house.

I am reading...
I am re-reading Real Learning

I am hoping...
Battle of the Bands goes well on Saturday night.

I am hearing...
the humm of the air conditioner Mr. Pete kindly put up. 

Around the house...
just enjoying the holiday and putting in some Marigolds.

A few plans for the rest of the week:
My birthday, Rosie's birthday, Battle of the Bands! That's enough!

A picture I am sharing:
