In case you're wondering what a day of homeschool might look like... it's books - everywhere! Our two oldest boys are attending the local Christian school so I actually have a light load this year. Believe me, if you think you're smarter than the average highschooler, try teaching geometry & biology! And I'm so fortunate that this year my daughter gets dropped off at our homeschool co-op on Wednesday afternoons and I get a few hours with only my 4 year old sweetie! (yes, they both cried when they realized that they weren't going to be together for the afternoon.)
So after we stopped by the store and had a little bike ride, I took a moment to organize a drawer. Once upon a time I was going to make a wind chime from old spoons but, alas, it's another project in waiting.
And completely off the subject... I had to show you this! Of course, I love these old laundry carts but what I'm so jealous over is the pink door and the aqua house!! Not to mention that my hydrangea has long since been drowned by all the rains lately and her's is simply gorgeous!! (The cart was up for auction on ebay but it has already ended. I just got sucked in by the colors. ) Can't you just imagine what lovely things lie beyond that door?! Certainly not books all over the floor or dishes in the sink or children screaming, "Doo Doo Head" at each other! Surely it's romance and roses and beautifully organized drawers!
Changing the subject again... I stumbled on another wonderful blog - I hope you aren't getting sick of hearing about all of them. There's just so many talented people out there!! I love the opportunity to peep into artistic and beautiful homes. I didn't have much computer time yesterday but I was fortunate to have found my way to a most fantastic blog... If you have ever dreamed of life in Paris... wondered if it's any more romantic or adventurous or somehow better than your own life, you must visit the Tongue In Cheek blog. I can't wait to take more time soaking it all in. She has wonderful pictures and stories of her daily life in Paris.
71) Sunshine!! There's been so much rain, sunshine - even just a ray or two flickering through the leaves - is so wonderful.
72) The slight bend of the road and the trees nestled therein.
74) Children singing when they don't know I'm listening.
75) Being still.
