Wrapping up the week...

I like to say it was a normal week, but normal is over-rated and I don't live normal! We started back to school, and my hubby started prepping our kitchen floor for the new flooring that will be going in next week. I am excited because we are finally doing our kitchen remodel we have talked about since we bought the house three years ago. So we have spent a lot of time at Lowes this week, fun times, especially with two little kids! Patience is a virtue, I am still working on it!

On Monday, my six little babies left the comforts of my laundry room to their own home...the coop! Today we opened the door of the coop to let them go and roam their fenced area, however these chickens seem to like their coop a little too much, they won't leave. I guess the are chicken, ha!
I have learned a lot since we have brought these chickens home. They are great entertainment, make a good science lesson, love to listen to me sing (lucky chicks), there is one hen that thinks she is the boss (so will call her Uno), they are messy little things, and we will have expensive eggs. However it is all worth it, we love these little birds! 

This week I was excited when my new planner arrived for the 2015-2016 year and I got a free bag, with one of my favorite go to verses Proverbs 3:5. Yesterday we finished up our week of school so now we are down to 4 weeks left!! Today we will venture to the library, grocery shop and piano lessons will be our learning environment for the day.

I have really been reading some great books and pondering on dreams, my personal dreams. I use to have dreams, dreams of my own, but since having children I have let my dreams go and well really they have changed. I wouldn't change a thing about it, my family is my heart! However, it is time for dreaming and adventures! More to come soon, until then love this quote from Sarah Mae's new book which speaks to my heart! "Thank goodness, there is no one-size-fits-all definition for adventure. My eyes are being opened to simple, ordinary adventures all around me. I'm up for doing things out of the ordinary, but I believe they should be things that matter to my family." 

Snapshots of our week, not many, but we have been enjoying the journey!

Encouraging reads you don't want to miss:
I want this journey. All of it. All of it, it’s just a journey of faith.

Grace always shocks. Grace always stuns. Grace is always what we need.

Friends are kindness givers and Kleenex-bring-ers and joy donors when others are running on empty.

Boys need moms who parent from God’s playbook.

We are not in charge of the whole world and everyone in it…and it’s not our job to make everyone happy!

It’s such a funny thing when you become a mom. You lose yourself to it in the most beautiful way. You give of yourself, you sacrifice, and it’s good and you wouldn’t change it. But then one day you wake up and you think, “Who am I now?” You have to figure out a new normal. You’re you, but you’re different.

Have you ever wished you could do something that would change the world? Your wish has been granted. Are you tempted to think that your obscure, little life will leave no mark on the world? You have no idea how wrong you are.
