Outside my window...it's beginning to look a lot like fall here. Is the summer gone already? Is it really almost September?

I am thinking...about a million things that feel overwhelming right now...and wishing I was in bed instead of fretting!

I am thankful for...access to God's Word ~ it gets me through the day!

From the learning rooms...school has been in full swing for about two weeks now. I have 2 students this year ~ 1st grade and Kindergarten. The days are longer but so far so good!

From the kitchen...hubby's smoking a brisket for us today. Can't wait to sit back and enjoy tonight! Believe it or not...I actually sat down and planned my menu for the WHOLE month of September. What a relief!

From the garden...lots and LOTS of zucchini and green beans. Still waiting for the tomatoes to turn red. Looks like we will have a few pumpkins too!

I am creating...a "patriotic" crochet blanket.

I am going...to reorganize the school room a bit. Need to move some cabinets so I have a little more room for my growing students.

I am reading...The Bible and about to start "Girl Talk" with Nicole (as recommended by my pastor's wife)

I am hoping...that my Mother-in-Law will wake up today. C'mon Grandma, it's time to play! Oh yeah, and that Abigail will get this potty-training thing down soon!

I am hearing...complete and utter silence. That's because I am typing this the night before I post and everyone else is in bed (or at work)...

Around the house...trying to keep things organized now that we are back to school. It can get out of hand far too quickly!

One of my favorite things...the complete and utter silence of after bedtime!

A few plans for the rest of the week... hubby's weekend starts tomorrow so a little family time then lots of school and a trip to the library!

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...

Nicole and Joshua whitewater rafting near Glacier National Park.

I love silence after bed time! Or in the early morning while all asleep. I've decided moving to Montana would be fabulous. Your garden, the weather, the seasons...sounds wonderful.
