Outside my window...Rumor has it we'll hit 50 degrees on Friday- I'll have to see it to believe it.
I am thankful for...two healthy growing baby boys! This dynamic is good in so many ways. I think Snap had given up hope that he would ever get a brother- to get two at once is just all the better, right? And our little Miss Posy Pie will still reign as princess-in-residence, so that will (hopefully) help her adjust to her impending dethronement. I hope?
I am thinking about...Boy names. Naturally.
|She reacts like her mother. You know.... big.|
In the Schoolroom...We're beginning and ending each day with an hour of reading aloud. I figure (almost) anything else we get to is just gravy. Life is good.
I'm pretty darn excited to get started on Jessica's Papal Lapbook. We haven't begun our Papal Unit Study yet; the lapbook is going to tie everything together so well. Charlotte also posted a lovely coloring page of Pope Benedict XVI that we'll be downloading.
From the kitchen...Primrose & I made some gluten-free carrot cupcakes for Posy's birthday that were crazy good. If I can get myself organized, I'll post the recipe here soon.
I am creating...
Photography. My Lightroom class started this week. I haven't actually started working on it yet (when exactly did I think I was going to find time for this?), but I'm chomping at the bit and eager to get to work.
I am working on...my Lightroom skills. I downloaded the first week's lessons and thought my head might possibly explode. This is a good thing, right? I'm going to learn so much in this class!
I am reading...The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey (I'm loving it so far; the prose is mesmerizing.)
Plate to Pixel: Digital Food Photography & Styling by Helen Dujardin
Holiness for Housewives and Other Working Women (because I can't read this book too many times)
|Books! Nothing makes this baby happier than books. She love her new blocks, too (thanks Aunt T!).|
I am praying for...The Holy Father. The cardinals. The Church.
And babies on the way- mine and others, too.
I am hearing...The other day, Tulip slammed her book shut and sighed, "I hate it when a book leaves me on a hangnail!"
Me: "You mean a cliffhanger?"
Her: "Whatever." (another sigh)
Me too. Those hangnails, I tell ya. :)
Around the house...I don't want to talk about it. There is more to do than I have hours in the day- that's all there is to it. Some days I cope well with this, other days I do not. Today was a "not" day. Ahem.
One of my favorite things...
Babies. Good thing too, eh? ;)
