Grey day. Steady rain. Coughing children. Tired mama. Doesn’t this sound like a great start to the week? I think the cold medicine I took last night knocked me out because it was 7 am when I glanced at the clock this morning, and all I did was turn over for a second and it was 9:30 am. Yikes! That’s pushing things a bit late, even for me.
Brainstorming ideas of how to get mom out of bed in the morning????
Despite the rainy and grey ["can't go outside and play"] weather, the coughing children, and the tired homeschooling mommy, we actually did accomplish quite a bit today. We did lots of school. Read our books. I finished a good portion of my BSF. Rachel made pumpkin, oatmeal, raisin cookies (with a few chocolate chips thrown in the mix) for a snack. Dinner cooked in the crock pot.
Most importantly, I discovered why Joshua is often found reclining on the couch known as Dough Boy. It is incredibly comfortable! Tim and I finished our movie and I would have been content to spend the whole evening in that cozy couch. So nice.
Tim, even with his pathetic, scratchy voice, read the chapter to the children this evening. I listened in a little bit. They are in one of the gospels. Sounds like John to me but perhaps it’s Matthew. They read out of the Picture Bible (I think) which is colorful enough to please Daniel and David, and meaty and true to the story to suit the rest of the group.
Here they are smiling for the camera. Sarah fell asleep before they started so I said I would PhotoShop her in. Of course, I don’t have PhotoShop so I guess we’ll just keep the picture the way it is.
Almost every night (less when the crew is all sick) Tim reads to the children from the Bible. He also takes the time to pray with them. I think he is awesome for making time to teach the children God’s Word and being so faithful week after week. Yay Tim! How many years has it been now?
I’ve already taken my nightly meds so I had better crawl upstairs before I pass out down here in front of the computer. Lovely.
