Happy Monday! After Sunday's refreshing services, I'm ready for another week. Like most of the rest of the country we've had some very dry, very hot weather the last couple of weeks. I'm praying for rain. Everything is starting to get that parched look, including my skin. ;)

I really enjoyed the weekend after our first week of school. Saturday morning I spent some time relaxing on the back porch with a good book. The morning slipped away before I knew it! I took the little girls with me to the grocery store while Mr. C and the older kids went on bus visitation. I didn't know they were having a huge kids' event at the store, including free hot dogs, drinks, snow cones, and games. I think it was a back-to-school party. They even had a treasure hunt inside the store. We put on cute little aprons and went around to stations where the girls decorated their own cookies and sampled everything from watermelon to ice cream. The girls had a great time. I wish I would have had my camera with me. Needless to say, my shopping trip took about 2 hours longer than I expected.

I rushed home from the store to prepare for company. We had invited a family from church over for supper. They were supposed to arrive mid-afternoon to help with some of the renovations in the schoolhouse. Well, they were right on time. They were ringing the doorbell about ten minutes after I walked in the door. At least I had some help bringing in the groceries. :) We had a great time fellowshipping with our friends in spite of a couple of mishaps; our gas grill ran out of gas. That would happen on one of the rare occasions I buy steaks.

Mr. C and his wonderful helper from Saturday will be laying carpet in the schoolhouse this evening while I'm off at our monthly ladies' fellowship at church. Hopefully I'll have some schoolhouse pictures to share with you in the next couple of days.

I would love to see pictures of your schoolhouse when you finish! I think it is so charming, and it's wonderful to have a place to keep everything.
Sounds like a nice time with your friends from church. Have fun!

Hi,
This is my first time to your blog. I noticed you are currently reading a book by Jim Binney! I've had the opportunity to hear him speak on several occasions. He's an awesome speaker.

Glad I found your blog...I'll be back.

Blessings,
Jill

Sounds like a very nice weekend.

Can't wait to see pictures of your school house. What a great thing to have to use without all the everyday distractions a home has ;). Glad you are getting it all finished and ready for school.

Have a great day
~Amy

It sounds like a fun day at the grocery store! I would have loved that as a child.

Can't wait to see the school room photos after the work.
