Today, I am.........And another giveaway of Educating the Whole Hearted Child!

Going to early breakfast with Sarah and walking the flower covered, tree shaded, sidewalk friendly Vitcorian neighborhoods. Putting in beef ribs with homemade barbeque sauce to slowly cook in the oven and to be finished outside with grilled veggies, baked potatoes and a movie night at home.

Looking for a porch swing at 2 shops,  for the front porch, where we have been eating dinner every night, by the aspens and tall pines. More shade here than on our deck for cool, breezy evenings.

Making homemade bread and cinnamon rolls for sharing with a sweet friend coming for a visit next week.

Trying to figure out what is eating my rose bushes and finding a solution.

Taking Joel out for a date to discuss what he direction he should take for the near future as a young idealistic, aspiring composer.

Tea and fresh homemade chocolate chip cookies and curling up with a great book this afternoon---Sarah promised they would be ready for the tasting. And maybe a nap snuck in between the edges.

So very honored and encouraged by the wonderful review of Educating the Whole Hearted Child--you can read about it here! And take the opportunity to enter one more chance to get one of our Whole Hearted Child books: The Homeschool Village
