Making // I haven’t been crafty lately but I have been busy getting some projects ready for the school room. I even painted the room over the past weekend. Once again I am totally amazed at how much change a coat of paint can bring. I can’t wait to reveal the room to you within the next month!
I haven’t been doing much reading lately. If I am being honest I am struggling to stay caught up with the blogs I love to read let alone pick up a book. In an effort to change I have been trying
to read a devotional every day.
I’m still wishing that summer could last forever.
This Is Living by Hill song Young & Free. As I said in my Friday post
my girls simply can not get enough of this song.
So many little and big things. Here is a condensed list: I am stronger than I thought I was, Marissa is a better swimmer than I give her credit for, gardening is an amazing way to witness Gods handy work, things don’t always work out the way we thought they would. I’ve learned that last one at least 100 times before and have no doubt I will learn it 100 times again.
Wearing // Shorts and tank tops. Mostly Old Navy $2 tanks…. man I love those sales. Tank tops are a staple in my wardrobe.
Summer with my girls. This summer has been even better than the last. I am absolutely loving all of our time together at the pool with friends. It has been so, so good. I never loved summer like this until I became a teacher. I feel like a little kid on summer break all over again.
Looking Forward To //
Watching the girls progress their new found “mermaid skills” over the next couple weeks at swim lessons. In just about a month Marissa has gone from a kid who wouldn’t put her face in the water to swimming underwater in the deep end. This proves 2 things. Kids can learn FAST and I have one very determined little girl. It has been so fun to watch.
I may be the last person on the face of the earth to hop on board the quinoa train, but I am finally there. So far I made curried quinoa and quinoa enchilada casserole. Both were great and will be made again.
I am also finally eating produce from the garden. Just the other day I picked my first ripe tomato! It may have been little but it was so good.
I am finishing up school plans for the 2015/2016 school year. Can you believe the first day of school is just over a month away?!
Praying // My prayer has and continues to be that God will put us where He wants us and lead us to a new church home.
Missing // Summer has brought a much busier life for a family who is used to spending hours at home every day. We are now gone just as much if not more than we are home. The only area this is really affecting is my baking and I kind of miss it. I look forward to a full day at home soon where I can play catch up and bake my heart out.
What have you been up to currently?
