Outside my window...it is definitely fall in Montana, even if the calendar says that fall starts tomorrow. We have already had our first snowfall and the wood stove is already earning it's weight in gold.

I am thinking...I need more coffee before I can think!

I am thankful for...my family. I am so blessed.

From the learning rooms...we are learning the words to the Star Spangled Banner this week. It is fun to listen to the kids sing it while they run around the house. I am pleasantly surprised by how well both Joshua and Nicole are doing this year. Nicole is becoming quite the little reader and Joshua is very motivated to learn, despite his challenges. I am so proud of both of them!

From the kitchen...found a wonderful recipe for homemade gluten free "flour" tortillas. Yum.

From the garden...I need to pull the tomatoes off the vine since the weather is getting colder and colder. Hopefully my neighbors are right and they will ripen inside. Our corn was a bust this year ~ it never got hot enough for it to grow. Oh well, maybe next year!

I am creating...an afghan that seems it will never end! I think I need to take a break for a while and work on something smaller till I can get motivated again!

I am going...to Awanas tonight. The kids are so excited for a new year of Awanas.

I am reading...The Bible and On the Banks of Plum Creek (with the kids).

I am hoping...for my mother-in-law to wake up today, that would be a great Birthday present!

I am hearing...my husband teaching (or trying to) my kids how to play chess. This has been a good lesson in patience for him :)

Around the house...wrapping up projects outside before winter and then we'll turn of focus back inside.

One of my favorite things...sleeping in!

A few plans for the rest of the week: starting Awanas, school, and church.

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...
