Status Update — August

Sitting…on an end of the couch, Bama blanket draped over my legs, book in my lap.

Drinking…a cup of camomile tea

ReadingWild by Cheryl Strayed. “A powerful, blazingly honest memoir: the story of an eleven-hundred-mile solo hike that broke down a young woman reeling from catastrophe — and built her back up again.” A story about backpacking and personal struggle? Yes, please!

Preparing…for a long day of shopping for new clothes and school supplies tomorrow.

Thinking…about everything I need to do to prepare for our new school year. I have 2 weeks to order books and get our room back in order.

Thankful…for friends and family; for skilled surgeons; for this mild summer; for grace.

Thankful…that I didn’t sign the kids up for all of our usual summer activities. We have thoroughly enjoyed not having to be somewhere everyday for a lesson or some other activity. I am glad for our 2 summer camp experiences (Student Life and scout camp). But I do not regret skipping all the other stuff we’ve participated in since my oldest was 6. We really did take a break this summer.

I’m going to get back to my book now. Goodnight!
