|May we remember no matter what to live, laugh, love!|
So this week was an exciting week, we all got our hair done, well all but one, the hubs doesn't have hair on his head! We were a bit over-due and we all did a little something different this time, so thankful for our talented hair stylist! I drive an hour to see her, so I try to spread them out, but she is worth it!! Our missing cat~Peter, came home! Our girls, aka chickens, started laying again! I got rid of two bags of stuff from my kitchen, working slowly on decluttering, oh how good it is for the soul!
We finished up some great read alouds this week, Johnny Appleseed, Peter The Great, and Strawberry Girl. I have two books I am almost finished with, so maybe I will share about those next week. Yes, I am one of those who reads more than one book at a time! Usually one is a review book, the other is personal book, and if I am reading a third book also, that is just a lite book (something that won't cause me to think too deeply), I read those when I am waiting for kids at their activities or when I am a bit tired but want to read something. However, I am a part of two new book launches so reading may slow down a bit, which I am so excited and blessed to be a part of. They are both Bible studies, the first one is for Word Writers-James (and I am currently doing the Philippians one now)!! The second one is for Sacred Holidays~The Final Days of Jesus, this is a Lent study! I have heard great things about Sacred Holidays Advent study, so I can't wait to start on it! AND 10% off the sales goes toward prison ministry! Here is a little about it: The Final Days of Jesus for women, men, and families. From His Triumphant Entry to the Resurrection, we will follow Jesus step-by-step. We will go slowly along side our Savior. As we study His Word, we will take breaks every other day to practice what He modeled-- we will pray, fast, sabbath, and seek justice. Fun covers for women (design your own covers) and families (color your own covers). We will be hosting daily winners for design!
So you are here for the tip? Or maybe more, but if you are looking for a time-saver and to stay up to date on your photo albums, go to the bottom of the post where I share about Chatbooks!!
We live in an age of fast transportation, fast computers, fast Internet access, fast food, fast videos, and fast social-media scrolling — and they’re all only getting faster. This is shaping our assumptions. We expect to be able to do everything at faster speeds and greater volume. http://www.desiringgod.org/articles/four-reasons-to-slow-down
Snapshots of the week:
We have been praying for this cat, he has been missing for a week and look who returned! Happy girl, celebrating! Thank you Lord! I wrote about my God lesson here: http://ajourney4life.blogspot.com/2017/01/how-god-used-cat-to-remind-me.html
This cat breaks all the rules (no cats in the house)!
A beautiful sunrise before the rains come in. Thank you Lord for your great reminders and grace! These wise words from Martin Luther King "Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that."
It's a joy to teach this boy and hear him reading!
I am so thankful for Sonlight's awesome IG's to help us in guiding our learning, plus all the awesome books!
Little man went for the faux-mohawk!
This sweet girl went for a long-bob.
It's a great day, when you get your hair done and the hard-copy of the book you have been reading for review arrives!!!
Yay, my girls have started laying again!! It's the little simple things!! Fresh eggs! Molting is no joke!
We enjoy read aloud time! Sis is reading from the Beginner's Bible.
We finished these great books today during our read aloud time! This is also where we like to sit and read together. Sometimes we get out the blankets 😊
|Here is my tip, CHATBOOKS!!! A time-saver, my photos are organized!|
I use to be behind in photo albums all the time, last time it was almost two years, now I get an album almost monthly, with only a few minutes of time needed. (That time will vary depending on how many pictures you take.) Each book is only $9.99, they are great quality, very durable, the kids enjoy flipping through them again and again. If this is something you are interested in go check them out, I do have a coupon for your first one free if you decide you are interested, feel free to use it http://invite.chatbooks.com/jenniewoelpern4nh
