The book club is meeting at my house tonight.  I’m making chicken salad on croissants.  Thankfully, it’s also Sam Bailey’s birthday today, so the big boys are going out with Sam and Mr.Stephen for some birthday fun this morning.  That will give me just the time I need to clean the house for this evening.

I attended a Welcome Tea last night at Kelli’s house.  It was for new moms entering Classical Conversations this year.  CC is our homeschool co-op that helps us give our children a classical education at home.  If you homeschool or have young children and have never been introduced to the classical model, I highly recommend you read Leigh Bortins new book The Core.  However I must warn you, you’ll have a hard time putting your kids in public school after reading it.  Excellent book.  Even if you have children in public schools, it is a great tool to help you strengthen your children’s education at home or during the summer.

I got a call yesterday afternoon from our agency.  I should get one more call this morning to let me know if we’ll be getting two new foster babies.  Only two this time.  A little girl and a little boy.  She couldn’t remember if they were 2 and 1 or 3 and 1, but either way, it seems like they would be a great fit!  It was still up in the air yesterday afternoon when I got the call, so they may not be coming.  I’ll keep you posted.

Have a great day!  Make a list of things you’d like to get done and see how many things you can cross off the list by the end of the day.  I actually made a HUGE list of deep cleaning and re-organizing tasks that I’d like to complete before school gets in full swing.  I’ll share the list with you later and let you know how the progress is going.
