Date With My Luv

We found a new coffee shop on date day in the Old City.  This was Sean's mocha.  Looks pretty doesn't it!?  Hubby loves me much because he skipped going to Starbucks and found us a place where I can order something since I'm not drinking Starbucks for now.  Not really drinking afternoon coffee any more either, but I broke the rules for date day!  :)

I've never been to the Old City.  Neat old buildings, but definitely a night life area more than anything.  

And this was outside the coffeeshop window!  A bird feeder in the middle of the city on the side of the street hanging from a bike holder (is that the right word - bike holder?)

My first gardenia blossom!  It smells delicious!  My favorite!

We started back to school this Monday and we are loving our new curriculum.  We are using Simply Charlotte Mason for every subject except math.  For that we are using Life with Fred.  Everyone seems to be really enjoying it so far.  We have looked at Rembrandt's paintings, listened to Bach, we are starting to learn how to sew, we have read Bible stories and memorized verses, started habit training, labeled countries in Africa, worked on spelling and handwriting, sang hymns, and we are reading the Trumpet of the Swan.  All in 3.5 days!  And we all love Life with Fred!

We also had a special church service to celebrate our new church building!  The Walker family from Nashville came and sang and the TV crew for Bringing Up Bates was there filming.  It was a packed service, but we all really enjoyed it.  It was a blessing.  And we love our new building!  I will try to post pix soon!

I've been feeling well PTL!  Working on my anxiety, taking my supplements, trying to listen and be  close to God and enjoy life.  My abdominal ultrasound came back normal.  :)
