A Busy Week

We had the most fun at VBS this week and even though it was crazy busy I found time for some fun projects. Since Bestie had a birthday party to go to today we wanted to make something for her friend. I found these great rose felt barretts at  while we were at it we made one for Bestie too :).

We also made a skirt for our friend that we found at this site

A Restful Day

 As you can see I've been playing with the "blog". I was over at Blueberry Cottage today to read her review of Karen Andreola's new Mother Culture CD.  I highly recommend it, Karen is an excellent author and speaker, I'm planning on getting my own copy soon, to inspire me before school begins. While there I was envious of the beautiful pictures at the top of her blog so Partner and I spent some time over at picnik uploading and creating, after about an hour I think we got it done! (Where there's a will there's a way!)
 There seems to be a fun competition out there to create a fairy garden at The Magic Onions (look for the button on the side bar!). Sounds like fun to me I'm going to check more into it and see if Bestie and I can do something too.
 Hope you are all staying cool and enjoying this beautiful summer weather.

A Grilie Day

Today was a real treat, a day for the girls to go shopping! We even had Garden Olives (Olive Garden) for lunch. What makes this kind of day so special? Because we were three generations. My Mother, myself, and my little Girlie. I cherish these times to make memories. We didn't find any of the things we went looking for but the fellowship was sweet and I am refreshed. I thank the Lord for a godly Mother who homeschooled me when it was such new territory and now I am passing the vision on to my daughter. So Thanks Mom for loving me so much and being my friend today.
And thanks too to my Honey who hung out and had a Man's day at home with the boys.

Is a time to relax and enjoy my husband and children. We've been enjoying  the time off from our "homeschool" life . It's so nice just to be the Mom for a little while :). In fact my 6yr. old just asked for icecream and I said yes! Can you imagine, I'm trying on the answer yes as much as possible, you see when I get overwhelmed I tend to just answer with a no and then think about it and change my mind. My better half
smile in a bowl!
has taken to calling me the "Mummer of No" lately so this has been a goal of mine this summer. And it's so much nicer to see my children smile especially since I really should be saying "yes" most of the time! Like to vanilla icecream sprinkled with minni chocolate chips, yum. Instant smile!
