Daybook 11/24

FOR TODAY: November 24, 2008
Outside my window...the sun is coming up and it's very cold.
I am thinking...about Thanksgiving. We are going to do something different this year.
I am thankful for...a quiet week. Most of the kids activities are canceled because of the holiday.
From the learning rooms...continuing unit study on the book A Cricket in Times Square with Isaiah, and FIAR unit study using Katy and the Big Snow with Sophie and Christian.
From the kitchen...I'm cooking a spiral ham dinner today. I'll use the leftover ham to make different meals this week.
I am PJ's.
I am creating...cloth linings with pockets to use in some of my organizing bins.
I am do more little things for myself. I'm always so focused on everyone else in my family.
I am reading...Sink Reflections by Marla Cilley. I keep picking up The Fellowship of the Ring by Tolkien (my son is reading it).
I am hoping...that gas prices stay low.
I am son getting ready for his class, my daughter eating breakfast next to me, and my other kids getting up.
Around the house...I spent a lot of time organizing things last week, and I'm going to continue working on it this week. (we moved a couple months ago into a smaller home)
One of my favorite snuggling with my kids. Sophie just jumped up on my lap :)
A few plans for the rest of the week: Read, laugh, play guitar, take it easy and enjoy my family.
Here is picture thought I am sharing...

  1. That sounds like a wonderful week. Enjoy and have a blessed Thanksgiving! :)

  2. I miss FIAR. Those were sweet, treasured times. My kids are older homeschoolers now. We still have sweet times on our sofa classroom, but FIAR was just so...wonderful. I loved all those books.

  3. Sounds like you have a wonderful week ahead of you. I have heard a lot of FIAR but haven't used it yet.

  4. Sounds like a fun and busy week. My baby is almost 8 and most are geting out of the habit of jumping onto my lap, but my baby will still do it. You have to love those moments

  5. Great daybook, sounds like you have a wonderful week ahead :)

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  6. I'm also enjoying a quiet week with many of our activities on hold. It is a much needed break and I'm looking forward to having more time at home :)

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  7. Cute picture! Have a great week!!

    I have the same issue with always doing things for others and hate to do things for myself as I feel like I don't deserve it even getting a haircut sometimes. Ugh!
