Fun Schooling

I tend to be a task oriented person.  I always feel as if certain things need to be done before the "fun" can begin.  I'm working on this a lot right now.  With a new baby in our family, we don't always have time to get those certain things done.  So, what?  Are we going to never have fun?!  Well, that won't work! 
I feel like the Lord is really teaching me to make some adjustments in my life.  To learn to calm down about some things.  Even simple, small things can make a big difference. 
As I prepared to go to the hospital to have my little Snuggle Bunny, I put together an activity bag for my other children.  One item I included in that bag was a Mad Lib book.  We hadn't done these yet with our kids (I guess I forgot about them). 
What a hit!  The kids love them!  We like to do them together as a family - it's so much more fun to laugh together!

Fall Treats

It was a fall rainy day here today.  And we loved it!  "Why?" you ask.  Because we lit a fire in our fire place, snuggled in the living room to watch a movie, and enjoyed some yummy fall treats we made this week!
Check out these adorable Acorn Cookies!  I found the idea on Pinterest.  It didn't actually have a link, it was just a picture, but I didn't think it looked to hard to figure out.  So, we gave it a go!

My oldest son has a t-shirt with a verse on it:

The Lord your God is with you,
He is mighty to save,
He will take great delight in you,
He will quiet you with His love,
He will rejoice over you with singing.
Zephaniah 3:17

This verse has been on my mind lately. Maybe just from seeing him wear this t-shirt, or maybe God has a message for me. You never know where you might find a message from God...He's a very creative teacher!
