Outside my window... Birds, bulbs, and the first crocuses... the warm sunny weekend proved productive here in the valley!
From the kitchen... I completely slacked off tonight and made pancakes for dinner. What can I say? Hubby was gone, Little Miss was running a fever! Lots of veggies and baked chicken tomorrow to compensate!
I am wearing... Boot cut jeans, a black, long sleeve shirt, and my glasses (that I'm having to wear more often now).
From the Learning Rooms... Finally getting to our rocket this week! We'll use the lesson to work on the letter R and counting backward from ten. Little Mister is very excited to put his rocket kit together, and I think that Uncle L may even be home for Easter. That means we'll get to launch it!
I am creating... a yard. I've made it my mission to transform our construction site into a real, neat landscape this month (and next). Our house will still look under construction until our siding is up and painted, but the yard... THAT is something I have control over!
I am praying... for patience as we revamp our parenting tactics around here! I tried Super Nanny's stern talk and somehow I've turned into a drill sergeant... and unfortunately my soldiers are following my lead. It's back to loving talk and living as examples of how we want them to handle sibling conflict. But my goodness, it doesn't take long for yelling to become habit!
One of my favorite things: the contentment that comes from knowing that God always has my backup plan planned... and that it wasn't His backup plan- it was His plan. It's amazing how something that is stressful, terrifying, or heart-wrenching, can lead you somewhere that you feel sure you were meant to be.
