Simple Woman's Daybook

~*~ Rhonda's Daybook~*~

Today is... Tuesday, June 15, 2010

Outside my window... the sun is out with rain in the forcast. I just had to get up because that is NOT a snake on my front porch curled up! Whew, just two leftover bananas left on the porch from our camping trip. Okay, GROSS!

I am thinking...how much I enjoyed our camping trip and having Michael home most of the week last week. I already miss him!

I am thankful...for an Amazing God that loves me, even when I don't deserve it!

I am wearing... t-shirt and shorts

I am remembering...how nervous I was just a little over a week ago leading ~140 Kindergartners in their songs during graduation. Not in my comfort zone; however, with Christ all things are possible. They did awesome!

I am creating...a cleaner home. I will be doing preschool with a friends son next week. We are also working on our summer list.

I am going...to enjoy every minute of this summer with my family. I know it will go fast!

I am reading..."So Long, Insecurity: You've Been a Bad Friend to Us" by Beth Moore. I will also be following along with her blog entries that she has previously done on this book.

I am hoping/praying...that I get a primary/pre-school job for this next school year.

I am hearing...my boys laughing and playing the Wii. Okay, now arguing.

On my mind...what Michael just told me over the phone (about possibly going back to college.)

From the learning rooms...I was so proud that Caden was the ambassador for his class for the last couple of months. That was a big deal, because Caden had some issues early on in Kindergarten, like not sitting still and leaving a station to go to the one he wants. He made a big improvement. I'm so proud of you Caden! Academic wise...no worries at all; He needs to be challenged.

Pondering these words..."one of the by-products of quality activities is that they provide a memory bank from which to draw in the years ahead."
I want to create a full bank of wonderful memories with my family.

From the kitchen...hmmm, what's for dinner? I need to get back to menu planning again. I'm thinking I'll make some banana nut bread today...mmmm.

Around the house...is a lot of noise from the boys. I know one day, I'll probably miss that.
Now, it can drive me nuts!

One of my favorite things...clean sheets and my bed made every morning.

A few plans for the rest of the week...
*Sharee's birthday party (my niece)
*Making a watermelon turtle fruit bowl for her party like I did here.
*Last week for baseball. (Cameron's team was eliminated last night in the tournament). Two more games for Caden. He hit it to the fence last night. Woohoo!
*Pick blueberries.
*Paint some outdoor furniture.

My Word Pictures...XCLR8 Performs Under the Sea at church. They did GREAT!

I just love when they are on stage praising God!

Rhonda, you always inspire me! I'm glad that was not a snake too! Camping is one of our favorite hobbies, wish the weather would cooperate!

I always loved it when school was out and I could just enjoy my kids - good memories.

The watermelon turtle was adorable - Thanks for sharing. Your boys are so cute - there is a special light on their faces when they are praising God, isn't there?

Have a wonderful day.

Aww..I LOVE these posts! We need to do some of that meal planning ourselves too.

I love Beth Moore...you'll have to let me know how you like that book!

Banana nut bread is like my favorite and I also love clean sheets on the bed...especially if I've been able to hang them outside to dry...never sleep better!

Have a blessed day Rhonda!

What sweet pictures. I love that you were listening to them laughing...then arguing. LOL Sounds all too familiar. I am cleaning too. Deep cleaning.

Kara said...
