"There is no hurry..."

Rivers know this: there is no hurry. We shall get there some day. - Winnie the Pooh

Yep, we had an unhurried, enjoying our own rhythm type of day. We needed it.

I finished up this week's lesson in Anointed, Transformed, Redeemed.  I spent quite a bit of time lingering in His presence....knowing that He's got this next ministry session in His hands. He certainly had a plan, before I did.

Stacia began the day by running into the dining room, giving me a big hug, and then enthusiastically saying, "Hey, MOM how bout you cook dinner tonight?" ::snort:: I was out until 7:30 p.m. last night.

We finished, "Of Courage Undaunted". We spent over an hour working on some science booklets for our Zoology notebooks. We cut out and folded the rest of the booklets for this chapter of our text.

I'm really enjoying our look at Wilberforce....grammar, dialectic and rhetoric levels.

Jared finished 2 weeks today and will aim to finish a 3rd on Friday/Saturday. Charlotte Mason is proving true once again. You can sit and drag it out all day...or you can give yourself time limits and work hard for a shorter time and really accomplish the same or more. We're shocked that he's getting so much done each week.

I DID make dinner, and mopped the floors, chased laundry through the fields and communicated with various ministry partners.

Mike called in the small window between dinner and Akiko arriving for our Japanese lesson. WOW...time....lots to remember numbers said one way if you're talking about the hour and another if you're talking about the minutes. LOL  She was SHOCKED to hear that my laundry blew over and I can tell this is going to be the topic, once again between her and her mother. ::snort:: I told her I was thinking of getting rope or bungee cord (don't think we communicated THAT well) to tie it to the patio posts. I haven't done it as I'm a bit worried it will pull out the whole patio. ::snort::  She assures me it won't. 

Akiko brought us this wonderful hard candy. It's hard to describe...but as it dissolves in your mouth (a hard candy) it begins to POP - it's like a giant POP ROCK. She loved the way the kids held back and watched me eat it first. Chickens. ::snort::
