Friends spending the night
sending our kids off to spend the night
lessons+Ft.Sam pool. Strangely, the kids do MUCH better at lessons. Felix even said today, "Well, I trust my swim teacher, I don't trust you." And why not? I only gave birth to him.
what we can live without, packing what we need
everything that has value

"How is there a whole family with brown skin?" To which I replied, "How is there a whole family with white hair? It's just the way it is. God made all kinds of people, but loves us all the same." Moment brought to you by(drumroll please), the middle child. Did I answer correctly? It felt like a failed parenting moment b/c I didn't get to really dive into the subject, but he said it on our way in to the movie theater and the convo kinda fizzled out when he went to investigate a quarter machine.
Eating out for the first time in FOR-ever.
I count it a HUGE success when the eight year old says, "PLEASE can we eat out? We NEVER eat out!" It was only a necessity as someone was coming to see the house. Lo and behold, they ended up canceling at the last minute and it was a wasted meal. Luckily, we ate at the Cove, so I still felt good about the food choices made, even if it did cost a small fortune. Note: only eat at the Cove on Tue. nights!
It's funny how we work things out in our heads and make plans accordingly. Things never work out how we plan 'em, so why bother, right? All in due time and all in His will. Just taking it one day at a time and waiting. We're in a good place. Life is fun and I can't wait to see how or where we end up in the next few months.
for what I can prepare for. At this point in the game, it ain't much. I just bought Singapore Math for Simon and that is all we have for third grade. We have an idea of what we want for the rest, just have to make the decisions and order it! We're kinda stuck on Science for right now. Any advice, homeschoolers? Corey, I think you mentioned one, but I can't find that email.
about a FB message I got earlier today. It was from another person being awakened to a new way of eating and it is so, so, so encouraging. Once you see the connection, there's no turning back.
It's the tenth and I only have two folders in my July file. No good. Oddly enough, I got two new camera toys this week and I should be excited to get snappy.
on Monday. Hopefully, Sean will get some stuff figured out and that will aid in the purpose-less planning!
