The Simple Woman's Daybook for February 19, 2018

For Today...

Looking out my window ... the rain is falling hard. We've had some lightning and thunder. The neighbors have a moving truck as they pack to move to Texas.

I am thinking ... it would be a miserable day to move.

I am thankful ... that it's break week and we have a quiet morning.

One of my favorite things ... is a schedule for a rest. I've been reading Kevin DeYoung's Crazy Busy off and on for a while and last night I read his chapter on Sabbath and rest and it was a great reminder of why we take this time. That and the dominos currently overtaking my foyer.

I am wearing ... still in pajamas, but I need to go change to exercise gear because today's the first day of The Balanced Life 10 Day challenge.

I am creating ... AmblesideOnline Year 7 plans. Or that's today's plan :)

I am reading ... Persuasion again. Wonderful.

I am hoping ... to get a lot done this week. My schedule might be overfilled.

I am learning ... what my children choose for their free time. One of the purposes of break week is to assess the affections being built in all of us.

In my kitchen ... oatmeal with trail mix. Happy breakfast.

In the school room ... cleanup and break week. The kids have already done some Scratch programming this morning.

Post Script ... it's time for another Homeschool Consistency Boot Camp Challenge. If you struggle with this area, Pam and I would love to help you out.

Shared Quote ... I read Psalm 36 in my devotions this morning and it always stands out:

Your steadfast loveO LORDextends to the heavens,
your faithfulness to the clouds.
Your righteousness is like the montains of God;
your judgments are like the great deep;
man and beast you saveO LORD.

A moment from my day ... N-boy made French Toast on Saturday.

Linking up with The Simple Woman.
