A photo from this week:
Jaan... has actually been drawing this week. Maybe the change toward cooler weather is making him want to settle down to indoor pursuits? Raia will spend hours filling papers with her creations, but Jaan's usually not interested.
Raia... has moved on in her art skills. After a long stretch of nothing but people and flowers, she drew a great person on a horse this week. And she discovered that she loves modeling clay.
Asya... talks non-stop. How did one family end up with THREE children who all love to talk? Aren't there usually some quiet ones thrown into the mix? Oh, well! I love to hear her sharing her thoughts and asking questions.
Will... got the new speakers in and set up, and they sounded great this morning. The babushki could hear! His head is clearing up, too.
School this week: Week 9 already? The weeks are flying by! More Shakespeare this week, and overall just a good, full week.
My books and knitting: I finished my October square, but I think it's not quite square enough, so I'm going to go back and add another repeat. I'm finding my ongoing shawl project to be very fun and relaxing, too. Reading The Tempest, along with other books....
[On hearing that she can start praying now for God to send her a good future husband.] "Oh, He keeps the good ones in heaven?"
Weather and nature observations: We've had the first bits of frost, I guess. Not much yet, but the days are slowly getting cooler. One evening we went for a walk and saw an owl, pretty close up!
Other news, ministry, notes and miscellaneous from the week: Last night we had the youth meeting here. Other than that, I'm drawing a blank.
On this date in. . . 2005: I posted a photo of the "washing machine" we used back then. We got our first automatic washing machine around the time Asya was born.
Just a few things I'm thankful for...
- washing machines
- Jaan following along in church, reading the Bible by himself!
- fall days
- family time, working with modeling clay all together
- Skype chats with Julie
My question for you: What are you reading now?
