I am thinking...I have an awful lot to do this week.
From the learning rooms...Science and History are priorities this week
From the kitchen...pumpkin pancakes for breakfast.
I am wearing...jeans and a t-shirt.
I am creating...socks and Hannah's quilt...the scarves and Rebekah's quilt are complete.
I am going...to a birthday party with children.
I am reading...The Bible and My Utmost for His Highest.
I am hoping...for strength to not grow weary this week.
I am hearing...someone back in the kitchen.
Around the house...things are messy, there was a whole lot of living going on.
Here is picture thought I am sharing...the hay feeder my husband and boys built last weekend (with the help of a friend, thanks Matthew).

Caleb's goat~Hannah's bunny~
The deadline is tomorrow. We will deliver them to our local cattlemans's hall and the judging takes place the beginning of next week.....We'll keep you posted.
This 4-H project, as a whole, turned out better than I anticipated. The careful attention given to details proved to be a good learning experience for both children.
Hannah is happy to be one step closer to getting a live bunny for her fair exhibit.

What a place to sit and reflect on the year gone by and dream about the year ahead. Children running and laughing, memories of my childhood at the lake shared while at the same time they are making their own cousin memories.
It is just easier to ponder these things while sitting here - away from all the distractions of home.
No need to worry, Emma guards the gate (O.K. the dock).
