My Lent 2019 Book List Plans

Is this the year you really want to dive into Lent? Do you want to come out of this Lenten Season and truly feel that you've had a small share of living in the desert with Christ for 40 days? I know that I do. Maybe it's an upcoming birthday that's making me have more of a now-or-never type of attitude towards Lent. Or maybe I just acutely feel the necessity of truly modeling this for my children, and living it with my husband. Whatever it is, these are the books and resources I'm going to use this Lent to really LIVE the season from Ash Wednesday all the way through to Easter Vigil. Look them over. If something looks helpful to you, use it. If it inspires you, go with it. I hope all of these bless and encourage you.

Outside my window...

The dead brown petals on my magnolia tree - I know they are going to make a big mess when they finally drop off.

I am thinking...
About my kid coming back from Manipuelation in Idylewood, CA hopefully tonight.

This was a gathering of "object manipulators."  By this definition of object, "a material thing that can be seen and touched, "  I have been an object manipulator for my entire life!  In fact, as I write this post, I am manipulating the object known as "keyboard."  Earlier this evening I was manipulating an object known as a stove, a food processor, and various kitchen utensils!

I am thankful...
That they had a good time, and still keeping fingers crossed that they get all the way home safely.

In the kitchen...
I am in carbohydrate hell.  My runners have to eat high carb especially before races.  Because Noah has had races the past two school days, I have been making our big daily meal at lunch time. Tonight I sliced potatoes and cooked them with some ham, cheese, peas, and cream of mushroom soup (gluten free) and made a nice casserole.  I'll be glad to get back to our usual meat and a veggie routine tomorrow.

I am wearing...
A skort!  and a t shirt.  It's nice weather for it finally.

I am reading...

I am pondering...
the civil war now that we are closing our study of it.  I highly recommend Ken Burns: The Civil War (Commemorative Edition)

I am going...

and I even had to write my own flute part last week - it took two days!

From the Learning Rooms...

In the homestretch now!  Tomorrow is the last day of co-op for chemistry and World History will be over first week of May - (Although the AP test is the middle of May!)
20 Years of Homeschooling!

A quote to share...
Life is often compared to a marathon, but I think it is more like being a sprinter; long stretches of hard work punctuated by brief moments in which we are given the opportunity to perform at our best. 
Michael Johnson
