OH. MY. Word!! I have had the best weekend!! That was great. I’m on cloud nine.

1.) I’m really happy with last week’s  Back to Home School carnival. I don’t know about everyone else but I found some good blogs, learned a lot and got a lot of great ideas. Don’t worry, I’ll share some of it soon! By the way, the linkies are still open – you can still sign up!

2.) Saturday was a nice lazy day after feeling a little busy all week. I did manage to get SOME housework done so that I wasn’t TOO lazy. But the two littles and I got to chill while the eldest and Big Daddy were at rehearsals all day.

3.) Sunday – our anniversary! Started off with my “hijacking” hubs’ Facebook account to leave a really sappy status update wishing me a happy anniversary. Despite my best efforts to make it SO. OBVIOUSLY. not something he’d normally say, it sounds like several people fell for it, which was funny. Best of all, it made him laugh when he saw it, and we got to laugh over it a few times later in the day. We also went to church together, went swimming at his mom’s house, went out on a date without kids – and came home without kids!- because he’d prearranged for them to stay at his mom’s house. He bought me roses and we brought home some movies to watch. It was such a nice day.

4.) Today I’m still happy, leftover from spending so much time with Hubs yesterday. And though I had to make a run to replace a window air conditioner, I capped off my evening watching Superman II with the kiddos and winning a Monarch class of my choice from Alpha Omega during the Hip Homeschool Moms Twitter Party! Princess & I picked out Spanish since we’ve already set our hearts on specific things for the other subjects this upcoming year. How exciting!

It sure would be nice if the “good day” trend continued all week, wouldn’t it? Well… here’s hoping. 😉

Hey, y’all! I'm Amber, and I wear many hats: Pastor's wife, marriage advocate, eclectic homeschooler, mother of three, and domestically challenged homemaker--lovin’ life and livin’ deep in the heart of Texas.
I love to write and I hope to use that wisely, to encourage others, and for God’s glory. I seek purpose in the mundane. I want my kids to see God’s fingerprints throughout all of creation, learning, and life. As I teach our children, God is teaching me through this homeschool journey, too. I love Jesus, family, coffee, words, and the color teal.
