All in all the day was a success!!! My beloved Emma is one year older!
Im sure you noticed that I also changed somethings on my blog (yet again). I finally realized blogger added some really cool gadgets to customize and create with, so if you come back to visit and my pictures are upside down and my posts are written in chinese... don't fret. All will be fixed shortly...(I hope) Im horrible with technology!!!
Our big black van is out of commission yet again, so in my complete and utter cabin fever/stir-crazy pregnancy induced hormonal rage, Im sure I will be posting ALOT!!! I may even Vlog if I can lock my kids outside long enough to get a word in.... JUST KIDDING!!! (maybe >))
I hope you have a GREAT weekend and chat tomorrow?? I have to show you my newest Chicken I bought to add to my collction. She is so cute!!!! Shhh don't tell hubby, he didn't want me to spend extra money but she followed me home (with a yellow clearance tag!!!)

With every pregnancy, the moment that line appears on the stick, my brain is BUZZING with the million and 1 things I need to do before baby arrives...

Outside my window... The sun is shining, my Lilac bush is blowing against my big living room window. Its hazy, hot and humid
I am thinking... Of how much I LOVE my little red house
I am thankful for... Soooo much. Hubby's job, our home, the food we have, and that we have God!
From the learning rooms... We will be reading some books today... its all we can do to escape the heat. This evening, when the sun sets, we will head out to the veggie garden and harvest some tomatoes and water our flower gardens
From the kitchen... Im mixing things up today... Spaghetti with meatballs and salad! Yummy!!
I am wearing... A pink tank and a lime green skirt.....
I am creating... I plan on re-doing my jelly cupboard. Spray paint it black and add fabric prints to the front. Great storage for more homeschooling books we have!
I am going... no where... its too HOT!
I am reading... 2 books. "showers in Season." and The Charlotte Mason Companion... both are EXCELLENT reads!!!!
I am hoping... for a beautiful thunderstorm tonight so hubby and I can sit out in the back screen porch and watch the lightning flicker. Sitting in our screen porch in the evenings is one of my favorite things to do with him. I also LOVE that room. Its my favorite room in the house and is so cozy!
I am hearing... my kids play. Hannah is polishing Molly and Abby's nails
Around the house... things are scattered. Puzzles are out, crayons are scattered, books are open. Its a relaxing day for us. We will tidy after lunch.
One of my favorite things... I have so many, how do I pick just one? Right now I would have to say, my back screen porch. It may not be fantabulous to others but to me its just perfect. We enter it from our kitchen thru a very cute sliding glass door. It has a green indoor/outdoor rug and our old kitchen table is out there. We replaced the chairs with plastic comfy ones. I have one plant stand with huge pink elephant ears growing on them. In the opposite corner is a wrought iron rack which holds the firewood for our fire pit... along with bubbles, sidewalk chalk play-doh and plenty more outdoor toys for the kids. I also dry our bathing suits on it and place the pool towels on one shelf.
A few plans for the rest of the week: A community meeting tonight and Church tomorrow night!! That will be fun! Church mid-week is always refreshing and much needed. Other than that, we have relaxing summer week planned!
