Outside my window…

It is warm and sunny, but looks like rain for the afternoon. Dark ugly clouds off to the west.

I am thinking…

How amazing it is to be at week 34 of my fifth pregnancy. I've been so very blessed this pregnancy. With the exception of my typical hip issues (that have plagued since my pregnancy with Lorelei) this pregnancy has been so calm and uneventful. The fatigue is setting in, but I feel very ready for whatever happens next.

I am thankful for…

The quiet, joyful weekend I experienced. I feel much better 'in the head' as well as physically. My younger two have recovered from the Roseolla and James is mending well. I want to carry the feeling of peace into the week.

From the learning rooms…

We're on a bit of a break. We learn through out the year without taking a very big break for summer, although our summer routine is much lighter in some ways than our fall/winter/spring routine. Currently, I'm working on a bit of a learning room overhaul as we swap out last year's pursuits with the new ones. The boys have been very interested in building, architecture, and farming, so our library check outs this morning really reflected that. Very low key right now…will probably pick math back up next week. That may be it until late August.

From the kitchen…

Lots of simple recipes. I am getting to the point that time spent in the kitchen tires me easily. Lots of fresh veggies being included from the farmer's market. Can't wait for the blackberries- they should be harvesting those soon. Thinking about meals to freeze ahead for baby's arrival. Any suggestions on your favorite freezable recipes?

I am wearing…

Comfy maternity jeans, green tank top, black shirt over top, no shoes. I even put earrings on today…I must be feeling better!

I am creating…

I have finally been able to return to my Cardboard Testimony commission in some small ways. Much of the next few weeks will be dedicated to completing it. Thankfully, they are being very understanding. I would like to finish it before the baby arrives.

I am reading…

Educating the Whole Hearted Child by Clay and Sally Clarkson

I am hoping…

for a resolution to some professional obligations. Culling back my time as the baby's birth approaches.

Listening to…

the new Dave Matthew's Band CD, Fiction Family, and the MP3s from the convention. Oh, and Pandora, always. Currently: David Neuve, which is quiet piano music.

Around the house…

Finished an office overhaul this weekend- rearranging and re-sourcing storage. (Our office/playroom/learning room are all the same thing, essentially.) Keeping up with the basic chores. Amazed that the laundry is staying caught up! *smiles*

One of my favorite things…

Lorelei's and David's language acquisition is growing and changing daily. Lorelei is talking in clear, full somewhat complex sentences- but I love how she interprets some of the words she is learning. So tickled to figure out what she's saying. And David seems to be adding a word a day. It blows my mind. His big thing right now is saying 'bye' to everyone everywhere no matter whether we are coming or going. It's so funny!

A few plans for the rest of the week:

A pursuit of peace, really. We've been going so much in the last few weeks that this week is a purposeful 'do-nothing' sort of week, especially for the kids. Want them to have lots of time to run and play and swim, and get back on their normal nap schedules. Trying to keep things just as low key for James, who has final projects and finals over the next week and a half. He's almost done, and I am so proud of him!
