It has been a great week- an exhausting week- a week full of adjustments!
Susanne, over at Living to Tell the Story is hosting "Favorite Five" today so I thought I'd join in with five of the things I'm grateful for this week...
Sweet baby hugs: What can be more delightful than warm chubby arms wrapped around your neck or little lips smothering your cheeks with kisses?
Long walks at the park: There's a lovely park just five minutes walk from our home. Massive old trees shade the walking paths, and Rose and I often go after lunch to enjoy the beauty of God's creation.
Watching the plants begin to grow:
Great internet finds: We've had some pretty rough nights around here lately [Rose wide awake and ready for stories at 2:00 am- help!]. Imagine my delight when I got on Librivox a few days ago and found that "Mother" had just been completed. I downloaded it immediately and have been so blessed- just what I needed. :) You can download it here.
Having just recently joined the coupon zealots out there, this story about made me cry with laughter.
On a more serious note, Elizabeth Botkin wrote a great article on girl's reading boy's literature. I'm working on recording St. Bartholomew's Eve by G. A. Henty and found it especially pertinent.
Dinner time: Can it really just be Friday? I'm sure Joshua has already put in 80 hours studying! This has made dinner a jealously guarded highlight of my day: a time to set aside the books, relax and talk.
