What a wonderful week we have had. It was a little uneventful because I have been sick, but I think God has used this slow-paced week to show me what He has given me..... and to prepare me. A very dear friend of mine recently blogged about the battle we face when we are following Jesus. That could not be more true. In fact, some of the biggest battles you will face as a christian is with yourself and your selfish nature (speaking from experience here). Apparently though, God definitely has a plan because the hubby and I have unknowingly been on the same page about a few things. God has laid Haiti on our hearts and there are a few things that we are praying about and we would like to ask you to pray for us as well. Our wonderful new church family is creating crisis care kits to send and we very excited about that, but please continue to pray as God leads our hearts. On another note, homeschooling this week was awesome. This was a blessing since I did not feel good. We actually did a lot of art this week and the kids had a blast. The only frustrating part for the boys was trying to convince Little Woman to not help with EVERY project. Check out the pics.
Ok, now I know some of you are wondering about the craft of the week. Did anyone guess it? Well this week my inspiration came from a couple of places. Every Sunday afternoon, I sit down, clip coupons and plan my meals for the next week. I've always wanted a way to display those meals so everyone knew what we were having (and to keep myself on point). I researched a lot of different ideas and discovered a blog of someone who created a menu board. So I took a look at hers and made my own. It is a little different from hers, but I made it to suit me and my family. It was a quick little craft that definitely comes in handy and I love using it. Check it out.
I hope you enjoyed my week as much as I did. Keep looking for the new area of the blog. Monday Savings. All for now.
