FOR TODAY: Thursday, September 9, 2010

Outside my window…It’s back into the early 90’s degree weather. I so enjoyed the cooler weather the last few days!

I am thinking…If my son doesn’t slow down with his school work, we’ll be done with kindergarten by Christmas! I am glad that he is having fun and gaining confidence in the learning process, though. I don’t want to force him to slow down either, and dampen his spirit, so for now, I am letting him go at his own pace. I’m sure he’ll slow down eventually!

I am thankful for…time spent with my husband. His work schedule is such that we don’t get to spend a lot of time together; but we are very grateful that he has a job – so we aren’t complaining! It just makes our time together that much more precious.

From the learning rooms…We are working our way through the Catholic Heritage Curricula, grade kindergarten.

From the kitchen…I’m serving baked chicken, tuna casserole, Shepard’s pie and homemade pizza (ours will be a pineapple pizza, Andrew’s favorite) for dinners this week.

I am creating…I am ashamed to admit that I am still working on the scarf I am knitting for a friend. {sigh} I was hoping to have it done by now, but haven’t had the time to knit in a long while.

I am going…to get some much needed alone time! My dear Michael already told me he is going to take Andrew out for a few hours along for some father/son bonding! I already have a list of things I want to do when I have the alone time, but I am also tempted to take the time to just veg out!

I am reading…lots of kids books! I guess it comes with the territory of having a 5 year old. 😉 I do have a few grown-up books lined up that I want to read. Don’t want my mind turning to mush! lol!

Living the Liturgical Year…Yesterday, in the Catholic Church, we honored the Nativity of the Virgin Mary (her birthday!). Besides saying extra prayers to Our Lady, Andrew helped me make a cake and we sang happy birthday to her. 🙂

I am hearing…the rosary being prayed on EWTN.

Around the house…School books, school crafts, school stuff, school stuff, and more school stuff!!

One of my favorite things…I may have said this before but I cherish every moment I am cuddling with my son talking, playing and/or reading. Even when we have days where his behavior is less than stellar (!), cuddling seems to make it all melt away.

Here is picture for thought I am sharing (one of my favorite pictures of Jesus)…Lord Jesus Christ, son of the living God, have mercy on me a sinner!
