:: speculating with my husband how Irene might affect us, since we’re currently on the coast
:: thinking I left behind hurricane weather when I moved from TX years ago!
:: wondering if we should end vacation plans early
:: feeling sad, since we began them later than expected
:: making fabulous memories with our children
:: surprisingly not annoyed by the amount of sand in the van
:: or in the children’s hair. At least not yet.
:: enjoying book 4 in the house of hope series — I can’t wait for the ending!
:: hoping to re-read parts of this tremendously inspiring homeschool book (free pdf!)
:: looking forward to the rhythms of the fall season to begin
:: laughing at that statement since I don’t want summer to end just yet
:: planning to earn swagbucks to purchase something off of said wish list
:: figuring out needed items for the next bulk food purchase
:: expecting to order most of it online
:: anticipating a weekend getaway with my love in a few weeks!
:: remembering that I left all of the planning up to him (whoa, was that a good idea?)
:: trusting that he’ll remember this too!
:: appreciating God’s creation, His intricate design of this earth we call home
:: being soothed by wind and waves, sun and stars, all of it a glorious testimony to His greatness
:: loving Him all the more because of it
:: thanking Him daily
