Peacocks and Beaches
We didn't do much school at all today. Tuesdays are PWOC days. Arielle has been volunteering for years in PWOC. Today the boys joined me and we took a shot at the newly created PCOC Pre-school room. I was EXHAUSTED at the end of the 2.75 hours....but I had a great time. It was a lot of fun to simply play with kids....and remind them Jesus is their Good shepherd.... We've been looking for a service opportunity for the boys and they were a great help in the room today. This may be a great fit. In any event we've volunteered to be in there through this study session and recalibrate as needed at that point in time. The chapel IS advertising for a Children's Ministry Coordinator and sub-contract....so hopefully she'll show up soon.
We got home about 2:00 p.m. and I DID insist the younger set both read to me...then...since it was still a "nice" day - we went to the beach! LOL We simply can't resist....the rain and snow may come to stay at any minute....winters are LONG... we love the beach....the beach may not open before we have to PCS (move).
There are WAY more live clams in the little cove now....and sizable fish which jump out of the water while the kids play. LOL
Tomorrow we'll all double up in school. In the future we'll double 1/2 our assignments on Monday and the other 1/2 on Wednesday and we'll be fine. The past few weeks the girls and I came home and we got school done in the afternoon...but those lil' darlins take it out of a "woman of my age". LOL
The kids are in bed, Michael is at work, I'm heading to bed....it's been a tiring day....but a great day.
Living all of life before the face of God...
