Simple Woman's Daybook

For Today  ~  June 30, 2009

Outside my window... the sun is shining brightly and my parents' pool is glistening!

I am thinking... how I wish Eli would not have gotten up at 6 a.m. on this first day of our vacation at my parents' ... urghhh!

I am thankful ... that I don't work outside the home and am able to take off with the kids a few times a year to come up to my parents' for some family time and some R & R.

From the learning rooms... nothin' ...

From the kitchen... I have the week off.

I am wearing... my new p.j.'s.

I am creating... our annual 4th of July t-shirts and plans for my 20th reunion this Friday that's here at my parents' house.

I am praying ... for a friend shaking an addiction.

I am going... to finish my cup of coffee and then fix breakfast.

I am reading... "Secrets" by Jude Deveraux.

I am hoping... to lay out in the sun this afternoon.

I am hearing... fans humming and the t.v. on in the sun room.

Around the house... the doggies are playing and everybody but me, Eli and Brynne are sleeping.

One of my favorite things... is 4th of July week! We come to Missouri every year for the week and get ready for the festivities. My hometown has had a celebration at the park on the 4th every year for over 100 years. It is so fun and my kids love it .. wouldn't miss it for anything! They have traditional frog and turtle races, sack races, egg races, egg and water balloon tosses, watermelon eating contests and so much more. It's an awesome time for our family!

A few plans for the rest of the week... Today my sister, niece and Kyndal are going to Walmart to pick up some supplies for my reunion and then going to the movies to see "My Sister's Keeper". Hopefully we'll get to come home and lay out for a while. Tomorrow we will probably just swim and make our t-shirts. On Wednesday we are all getting our hair done. On Thursday there will be more swimming and Rick is coming in the evening. On Friday is my 20th high school reunion. And on Saturday we'll be celebrating the 4th at the park. We'll head back to Oklahoma on Sunday.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing..
