Outside my window...the morning sun is filtering through the trees in the backyard, which are still green - but spots of yellow and rust tell me the colors will be changing soon
I am thinking... that TRUTH is a very important concept to understand; and I like R.C. Sproul's definition, that Truth is reality from the perspective of God; who else's perspective is worthy of my trust? ( see next item )
I am thankful for... the 7 high school girls who were at my house last night for our first meeting of The Truth Project small group!
From the learning rooms…Week 10 of Tapestry of Grace, Yr.3 - "John Quincy Adams and Political Realignments"; reading Les Miserables for our high school Rhetoric co-op class; still learning about the geography and culture of South America; working on an American Govt. lapbook; a field trip tomorrow to hear a Holocaust survivor speak about her experiences in Nazi Germany ( not related to our current studies, but you grab the experiences when they are available!)
From the kitchen... my daughter brought me three big bags of apples from a NC mountain orchard - have already baked apple pies, apple crisp, and apple squares; maybe today I'll try apple dumplings!
I am wearing...my pajamas
I am creating...a support group newsletter that is overdue! I NEED to do something fun and creative though - maybe a fall craft project for the house; my creative juices have been stagnant lately
I am going...to Winston-Salem for the state homeschool volleyball tournament this weekend - GO EAGLES!
I am reading... Mommy Diagnostics, The Naturally Healthy Woman, Naturally Healthy Cuisine, and The Naturally Healthy Pregnancy - all by Shonda Parker and all part of the Family Herbalist course that Amanda and I are working through
I am hoping...to get my TOG Unit 2 planning done in the next couple of days; better late than never
I am hearing...quiet!
Around the house...the kitchen is still half-painted, so I need to get working on that again; also, I am finally getting out my fall decorations today!
One of my favorite things...the NC State Fair starts this week! we go as a family every year and enjoy the Village of Yesteryear crafts, the gardens, the art exhibits, the cloggers, the animal barns, the FOOD - especially the NC State Univ. Ice Cream!
we skip the rides and carnival games
A few plans for the rest of the week: Prom Committee meeting this afternoon;basketball, volleyball and baseball practices; volleyball tournament; ASU Fall Break starts Thurs. so college kids will be home;
Here is a picture thought I am sharing...
