It's funny how yesterday was such a hectic and busy day, yet there isn't all that much to write about. Ever have a day like that? Wednesday was my hectic quiet day.
It started off early with school, since E had 3 live lessons to do. He had music first, so he did the reading for that before going to class. He is currently studying the music of the Baroque period (and if it's not Baroque, don't fix it). After that was science, with an assignment that he finished and turned in. Then he had algebra class. He hasn't done that assignment because a) he didn't fully understand it, and b) he didn't have enough time. There was a Hope assignment he had to do (he got 100% on it) and an English assignment (another 100%). His science teacher checked his portfolio and gave him 100% on that too. So it was a busy but very productive school day.
I got my package from Ulta yesterday, and tried out the Complexion Rescue, but I have to honestly say I didn't pay much attention to it, other than the fact that my face felt very hydrated. I had too much other stuff to focus on. I couldn't spend much time looking at my face.
I made my turkey and quinoa chili which we love. After lunch I showered and did my hair and makeup. This is the second time I use the Pretty Wild kit from Bare Minerals on a Wednesday, and the second time I get complimented on my looks. Obviously, this choice was a hit!
Awana was great. The boys and girls had game time together, so they were pretty riled up, but my girls were focused on getting their work done. One of my girls had me chuckling. She is an overachiever in every sense - she's ahead of all the girls except one, who is tied with her in her book. The assignment was to make at least 3 drawings of 3 separate times when she was afraid, and how God helped her through it. She got one picture done, then said she couldn't think of any others because "she's never afraid of anything". She claims she always knows what to do so she has no reason to be afraid. While I applaud her bravery and positive outlook, I don't believe her for a minute. So I said we'd ask Mom to help us. She didn't think that was even necessary because Mom wouldn't be able to think of any times either. I asked Mom anyways. She gave me that, "Are you kidding me?" look and said, "Don't worry, I'm sure we'll remember some episodes before we get home." I couldn't help but laugh at my new Merida (I told her we'd have to change her name because she's so Brave). These girls give me life, I'm not even joking. They make me smile from the inside out.
After that we came home, and I got ready for bed. Here I was, in my jammies, and my oldest son comes home with his best friend. I was not about to go out into the living area in my jammies, so I stayed in my room. My computer was in the dining room, which is why this post had to wait till today. And now today is gonna be another busy day, so let's see if I have a chance to report today's activities tonight! Have a blessed day ya'll.
