Outside My Window...There are thunderclouds. The monsoons are starting. So far, we have only had one thunderstorm and I wasn't even home for it.
I am thinking...that it is nice to be starting homeschooling again. I have a normal schedule again.
Although, I have doubled the number of children who are homeschooling this year. We
brought our second daughter home so she can finish high school and daughter number five is
starting kindergarten. So, I have a 10th, 3rd and 2nd grader and one in kindergarten.
I am thankful for...The National Catholic Family Conference. There were awesome speakers and

I am creating...a weekly schedule this week

I am reading...today I am reading a People Magazine that a friend left behind.

I am hearing...pages turning, one daughter trying to pound ants, and our oldest playing with the
Around the house...a little messy, but nothing that can't be cleaned up.
One of my favorite things...birthdays. My little guy turns three on Thursday.
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week:Farmer's Market on Thursday. Maybe Mass a couple of times this week. Birthday cake on Thursday. Birthday party on Saturday.
Here is picture thought I am sharing...This is a photo of my husband and daughters Deanna and Allegra at a beach in Lahina, Maui. We were watching our two oldest surf. In the distance you can see the island of Lanai. This was two summers ago. The trip brings back great memories of my parents 40th anniversary, which is why we were in Maui, and my 18th anniversary.
