We are moving right along with getting things moved, completed and in order. Despite not hearing from our electrician yet we are working away at what we can do. Excitedly I can actually look back and not see as much work as what was ahead!
Our new schoolroom will, indeed, be utilized starting this coming Monday. I think that for the most part the children are ready. I am on the fence as I know it's time to start but yet I know what work lies ahead! I started the lesson plans but unfortunately am out of ink for our printer.
I am very bummed on that but will just keep handwritten set of plans until we can get more ink.
Jesse and Bethany want to begin reading so badly. I am hoping that this will run rather smoothly. Brittany will officially be in her high school years. Dalton is moving into 6th grade. And Samuel, well, I am praying for a blessing to fall on us for a productive year. I am looking forward in faith that he will move smoothly into being a more excelled student than ever before.
I am beginning to find out that I am going to slow it down. After making through cooking last night I had to lie down as I instructed James and the children as to what needed completing. I was having some serious pains. I kept thinking of how it'd be too soon for this! It took a few hours but things gradually slowed down. I would be so excited if I was anywhere close to delivery but 7 weeks is way too soon! So, in another month or so I will be glad to have those feelings and will actually try and promote them...
Today I am going to be folding a lot of wash that was gotten to yesterday. There will be another 3 loads to wash, fold and put away as well. The kitchen needs a serious cleaning but I think I will delegate that task out to the three oldest. The back deck needs sweeping as well. Besides that I need to head into town and deposit James' paycheck, pay the phonebill and pick up a few items from the grocery store. Our big shop is suppose to be this Friday so I am getting only the very essentials till then.
Oh yeah, I roasted some chickens last night and baked a sweet potato casserole along with rice and giblet gravy. Yum, yum, yum. That was the first time I made giblet gravy and it was a hit! James even wanted leftovers for breakfast. That's quite a compliment! LOL The sweet potatoes were a welcome blessing to us and went to good use. Tonight I think I'll make some salmon patties and sides.
A can of salmon was given to me as well. The giver just wasn't used to dealing with the "black slime and bone". She was "grossed out" and so I felt it my duty to take the can. LOL We LOVE salmon patties. I tried telling her how to fix them but she wasn't interested. hardy-har-har!
Today seems so calm and casual but it will be filled with a lot of household maintenance and general pickup too. Oh, I SHOULD clean our bedroom but I think I'll wait another day.
Have a great day in the Lord and praise Him for the day He has made.
