Outside my window… it’s dark.  it’s nearly 11:00pm.  do you know where your children are?!?  I know where mine are!  ASLEEP!!!!!
I am thinking… how in the world I produced a child who made a 98 in advanced math on her progress report from school.  and she is upset about it!  that’s because she made 100 (or above) in everything else!!!
I am thankful for… so many things.  this time last year was so very bleak.  now there is light on the horizon.  there is more than light.  there is a hope and a resolve that wasn’t there before.  Thank you Jesus.
From the kitchen… we made chocolate chip cookies when the kids got home from school.  then we had a Shaw fiesta…. “I’m forever eating tacos, tacos that are on my plate…”
I am wearing… jammies.  I am ready for bed.  but I have been known to wear jammies, even when I’m not going to bed.
I am creating… yeah.  that too.  Creating???  I need to figure this one out.
I am going… to create something so I can accurately answer the question above.
I am reading… “Same Kind of Different As Me”.  If I could just write one book like that one.  Ok.  I think I will.
I am hoping… that Canon will go to school tomorrow, painlessly and without giving us a guilt trip.
I am hearing… this crazy movie called “Cloverfield” that Mike is watching off our DVR.  I think it’s like “The Hills” meets “ET”.  No, make that “The Hills” meets “Aliens.”  Yikes.
Around the house… is the nighttime quietness of children in their beds and mom and dad on the couch.
One of my favorite things… hearing Canon read!  He is a smart little guy and so inquisitive about everything right now.  He loves to learn, especially reading the children’s encyclopedia my grandmom gave him for his birthday this year.
A few plans for the rest of the week:  I am going to make some awesome plans for the rest of the month.  September 15-30 is going to rock!

here is a picture thought for me to share with you… I love my boy!  No doubt about it.  He was heaven sent.

    Nice blog…
    After reading this blog, I am just thinking about my kid who is 18 months older staying at my home town. Really missing her a lot with my working location where it is 150 kms long from my home town. I will be rounding every weekend to hometown to see my kid and wife. Its pretty hard to work every minute with the thoughts of my Cute baby!!
