Even though last Monday was January 1st today feels more like the new year has begun. I guess it is because the holidays are over and we have started school again . Today has been a good day,with a small exception of some sickness. The children did a great job of getting up,doing their morning chores and starting school .I was able to get my 4loads of laundry done and now have a fifth one in the wash .Remember that sickness I mentioned?. It adds some extra laundry to the pile :) Besides laundry and the normal work of the day I am hoping to give the kitchen floor a good scrubbing and clear some clutter in there. I praise The Lord for another year of life to live for him!
