The Simple Woman’s Daybook for June 18, 2018

For Today…

Looking out my window … it’s getting dark. I heard a rumble of thunder a bit ago – hope it cools things off overnight.

I am thinking … about Mason’s three tools actually, I’m stewing about my son’s baseball game tonight and how adults ruin things for kids.

I am thankful … that he’s taking it OK. We’ve worked for years on “the ref is always right, even when the ref is wrong the ref is right.” They were definitely wrong tonight, but N-boy is controlling his emotions and not letting them control him. He knows things can’t change at this point. I should follow his example.

One of my favorite things … is watching my kids play. N-boy pitched tonight. It was a shaky first inning, but a good second and third. I was proud of how he pulled it together and did his best.

I am wearing … pink tank top and jeans shorts – it was scortching hot at the game!

I am creating writing … about scaffolding and finding pictures as I go. I’m starting to get excited (and nervous) for the Set Your Feet Retreat.

I am read … How the Irish Saved Civilization.

I am hoping … N-boy’s next outing goes even better. He’ll probably pitch on Wednesday again.

I am learning …

In my kitchen … I need to empty the dishwasher. I did make chocolate tres leches cake for Father’s Day yesterday and it was a hit.

In the school room … the school books are all in the kitchen :p

In my garden … I planted seedlings from my brother. I should check them. R-girl watered the herbs today, at least.

Post Script … This week at Charlotte Mason IRL, we’re talking about the Discipline of Habit. We’d love for you to check it out.

Shared Quote … my favorite CS Lewis quote:

A moment from my day … we started school outside this morning

Closing Notes: Summer school is in full swing – but that doesn’t mean we’re doing full days. I really want to get back to doing Morning Time, but when the evenings are so late with baseball, the mornings are hard. We’ll do what we can and count it all a blessing.
