So, Friday after the kids left, I would spread out the math, reading, science, social studies, etc. curricula before me and begin filling in the impossibly small boxes allotted for each hour of each day for the next week.
Sometimes we actually accomplished what I had planned - sometimes not.
Fast forward to today and nothing has really changed. Sometimes I accomplish what I planned and sometimes I don't. But that never stops me from planning.
I have been busy baking and putting things in the freezer in anticipation of the arrival of siblings and nieces and nephews this weekend. This plan has had mixed results. I am quite sure I baked one batch of cookies, two loaves of cranberry bread, and a pan of brownies. The cookies seem to have disappeared as has one loaf of bread. Hmmm....Maybe I should put 'self-control' on my list. :)
I am eagerly anticipating the arrival of all our company and the opportunity shortly thereafter to be company ourselves. We are headed to Nathan and Michelle's for Christmas where we will be joined by Daniel, Jon, Kristi and Josh. Oodles of plans in anticipation of both events.
All the plans that I have made, however, pale in comparison to The Plan.
" In the fullness of time, God sent His Son...."
That marvelous plan changed my life. Yours?
