For Today I'm Following my own Cajun Cottage version of the Simple Woman's Daybook
Outside my Window...is the beautiful sunny city of Springfield, MO. We're here this week for this: National Christian Homeschool Basketball Tournament
I am thinking. . . of how to get rid of all this cake!
I am thankful for. . . real-life homeschooling groups who are dear friends as well.
From the schoolroom. . .Springfield MO is our classroom this week.
From the kitchen. . . what kitchen? I'm in a hotel room. Oh, you mean the ice chest in the corner? Well, there's a vegetable tray, bags of ice, grapes, water bottles, yogurt, and a honey-bun cake on top.
I am wearing. . . blue pajamas w/ yellow and white floral design
I am creating...lots of photo albums of our Nationals trip
I am going. . .to several basketball games this week. And let's not forget the poolside for little sisters who have to follow their brother's ball team around the country.
I am reading. . .a little of this and a little of that.
I am hoping. . .to sleep in tomorrow.
I am hearing. . . Oh, Brother, Where Art Thou on television
I am praying...especially for my son. This week was his 16th birthday...on the 16th...that makes it extra big and extra special.
Observing the Liturgical Calendar...St. Patrick's Feast Day and St. Joseph's Feast Day on the road. It's a stretch...
Around the house. . . as long as my older children don't burn my house down or starve the house dogs, all is good.
One of my favorite things. . . not having to cook....well, no...I like to cook. It would have to be: not having to wash dishes for a whole week.
Here is picture thought I am sharing...
We stopped at Laura Ingalls Wilder's house in Mansfield, MO today. Spacey-Me forgot the camera in the van and thought I had left it in the hotel room...only to find it in my book bag on the way to the Rock House which Laura's daughter Rose had built for her parents (they lived there 8 years). So I was able to take pictures outside the Rock House.
