Welcome to this week’s post. Here’s his week and what’s happening at home.
Cyrus is cooking a lot these days thanks to our 5-ingredient mealbox. He loves trying recipes and I love him spending a lot of time in the kitchen. Especially since he is such a good cook!
Kirstin and I enjoy tea time almost every day while she is in kindergarten. That’s what gets her so excited and makes her preschool time even more fun!
Cyrus came home from school the other day and decided he and Kirsten needed to have a tea party. Check out this adorable video.
Mind you, the most powerful sermon we ever preach is the life we live every day.
Our children are learning by watching our example. They see how we respond when life is tough, when things don’t go the way we want them to, when challenges and setbacks come.
They observe and learn how we interact in the world by the way we respond to them and interact with them.
You can’t do it perfectly every day. But our children will see how humility and honesty will show us when we come back and ask for forgiveness when we get off topic, get irritated, or listen to our hearts without stopping. Learn what you look like.
It was an honor to record the podcast Sissy Gough and David Thomas of Raising Girls and BoysI love them so much and we had a great time recording it! ask here.
True story: I was so proud of us because it was really midnight the night before Easter and all eight of us were able to dress up and walk out the door. Tow — and we were going to get to church 10 minutes early! Realized I forgot it was 10:30 am. So we were actually 5 minutes late. oh well! 🙂
David always looks so grown up after he cuts his hair!
Kierstyn has been learning a lot of new things lately, like how to do laundry and how to make eggs. She’s becoming a very skilled helper and she loves it!
It’s that time of year when I spend a lot of time watching Cyrus baseball games, and I love it!
It was an honor to speak at a gathering of local moms last week! I always love to talk face-to-face so I can meet and encourage other women in person! (I love sharing online, but face-to-face sharing is an online win every time!)
Friday night was Senior Prom, our kids’ school did it in a big way, and parents and families were invited.
I reheated a decaf latte in the microwave one afternoon recently (other moms have found the coffee needs to be reheated as they rarely drink it all before it cools down). Or just below??). there. Then I realized what the cup was saying.
May your coffee be warm, may your day not be spilled, and may your heart be filled with all the blessings!
