Outside My Window...Hot and humid. Is there anything else to say about the weather in Houston these days? Even the pools don't cool us off right now.
I am listening to...the Food Network. I am married to a Top Chef, so every day when he has lunch he watches Food Network. My boys are now in love with Giada.
To Live the Liturgy...now that we're home we're back on schedule with Super Saints. This week we are learning about Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha. Squirt has his own book to read and I am reading the little boys another age appropriate book about her.
To Be Fit and Happy...as much as I love vacations I hate being away from the gym. I love my local YMCA. Even the boys missed the Y and were ready to go Monday morning. I even switched up my cardio this week. Between the new cardio and Bodypump, I am feeling my workouts after just two days. That's good considering the amount of cake I ate the past three days.
I am thankful for...my friend Sarah. I hadn't seen her in almost five years and I loved being able to see her every day for a week.
I am pondering this quote...Faith makes all things possible, not easy.
From the kitchen...thankfully, no more cake. I just finished the last of four Tupperwares of the boys' birthday cake. Does anyone think I shared with the birthday boys? We have menus planned all week...lots of grilled chicken, fish and veggies.
I am wearing...my workout clothes, still.
I am thinking...that this summer has flown by and I am not ready for it to end.
From the learning rooms...We're back on track this week. Goose started his first Magic Tree House book and has read two chapters. I am so excited for him. I used to read these books with Squirt and loved them. We'll finish a short study on South Carolina, our vacation spot, then get ready to do a big unit on Texas.
I am praying...for each of my children and husband. They are all so different with different needs and I don't want to let them down.
On Keeping Home...I unpacked the night we arrived. I was up until 4 in the morning, but at least my house was clean.
One of my favorite things...the band Wilco. I am so excited about their new album.
A picture thought I am sharing...THE BIRTHDAY BOYS
