A simple women's daybook:
Outside my Window … cloudy and breezy
I am thinking … I wish that our adoption agency would make some referral calls this week!
I am thankful for… that my kids like to play together
From the kitchen … whole wheat bread baking
From the learning rooms … Esther and Nathan playing an education game on the computer
I am wearing … t shirt and capris, again
I am reading … Captivating
I am hoping … to see my children in Ethiopia's faces by the end of July
I am hearing … laughter
I am creating …lesson plans for the school year
Around the house … After a big cleaning day yesterday, I am enjoying a clean house
One of my favorite things … coffee in a big chunky mug
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week …. Our adoption fundraiser yard sale is this weekend. Praying it is a good one!
A picture for the week:
My kids and their cool Gramps after he flew them home from a weekend visit at Nana and Gramps house!

It has been such a long time since we have had a Family Fun Night. We had a Friday night at home ( minus Abby, she was out with friends) so I decide that it was time. I actually have planned one or two Family Fun Nights each month for the next school year. I think it will be fun and when we get back from Ethiopia, if we are referred two children and one is older, then it is a perfect opportunity to expose him/her to themes in a safe hopefully not overwhelming environment.

We took the kids from church to the Winston-Salem Dash game on Wednesday night. We had awesome seats and the kids had a great time in spite of the high 90 degree heat!
