7-Quick Takes

Simple Woman


Outside my window...

Lush and green - as it should be as we have had non-stop rain for weeks and weeks!!!!
A 50's homeschool dance 028

I am thinking...
about what a busy but good weekend we just had. Soccer is done for the season, an old friend was given a proper send off and Christian burial, the homeschoolers in the area pulled off the biggest homeschool high school dance YET!, and Mr. Pete and I participated in an awesome concert last night!

I am thankful ...
for my wonderful, busy life.

From the learning rooms...
rebooting this week with post-civil war for history, more in General Science, another Little House book for Izzy and Huckleberry Finn for Noah and Gabe, maybe Izzy too. We are also learning a bit about Edgar Allen Poe.

Sam should be ready for his CLEP test next week- finally!

Izzy is drilling on her math facts before I put her into the next math book. And then we're going to do some home painting and scraping - that should count as phys ed AND home economics.

From the kitchen...
Meatloaf, potatos and salad - yum!

I am wearing...
Black shorts , orange T with embroidery.

I am remembering:
Mama - always.  The girl who won the scholarship from mom's memorial fund was truly surprised and genuinely happy to get it.  That was a good idea sis!!

I am creating...
a new front yard.  Now that I have decided I want a weeping cypress tree, I'm seeing them EVERYWHERE!

I am going...
try to stick to my diet this week a bit more and keep up with the morning exercise.  Noah has asked me to take him running too so I'll have a chance for more cardio.

I am reading...

Inconceivable













I am hoping...
that Sam will be able to pass the CLEP test in General Science this week or next. The kids have their piano recitals tonight!  Will we be proud of their accomplishments? or will this be an epic fail?  That's always the question.  Then Friday is Battle of the Bands AND Sam is going to a public high school senior prom.  That will be something!

I am hearing...
the buzz in my ears and the humm of my computer and a birdie tweeting outside! A nice change from the patter of rain that has been the norm around here.

Around the house...
Classroom, laundry, planning the landscaping.
A picture I am sharing:  
My son's and their brother-cousin Paul at the 50's hop Themed Homeschool Dance!
